Sorel was once a solidly utilitarian brand, but over the last decade has transformed itself into a fashionable line as well. In our recent testing, Sorel boots have managed to endure extreme weather conditions — snow, ice, and rain — and still been office-appropriate or night-out worthy. Look for solid leather styles with a comfortable wedge for professional settings, while the more rugged styles with faux fur lining are cozy for snowed-in weekends. We find the inner linings on most boots to be extremely warm. Note different consumer reviews of sizing — while some Sorel sizes are true to size, others tend to run small — especially the more fashion-forward wedges.
