Canadian footwear manufacturer, William H. Kaufman Inc., launched the Sorel® brand in 1962 as a line of rugged boots designed to withstand challenging weather conditions. It was acquired by Columbia Sportswear Company® in 2000.
The brand's flagship Caribou™ boot - with its natural waterproof rubber shell, Nubuck leather upper, and removable felt liner - remains a favorite of outdoor enthusiasts across the globe. While the Caribou is still one of the company's most popular styles today, Sorel's popularity has soared due to their many versatile styles for men, women, and children.
Sorel believes that when your feet are taken care of, you can be more spontaneous. They believe your boots should last as long as the experiences you have in them. And they believe in being effortlessly outdoors - no matter what the elements.
