There are your everyday product recommendations. And then there are some brands that inspire near-religious testimonials.

Like one InsideHook editor, describing his love of the long-standing Canadian boot brand Sorel.

“Sorel is great,” this unnamed editor chipped in (uninvited) on Slack. “Every Coloradoan swears by it. We don’t f*ck with LL Bean. [That’s] prissy East Coast sh!t.”

We cede the floor. “We like our boots clunky and beefy,” he continues. “And they make a more mellifluous clomp. You know a Sorel from two blocks away.”

Now that you’re a convert, Sorel is hosting an End of Season sale, meaning nearly 200 boots and mocs are up to 40% off. Just in time for below freezing weather.
