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.
A few of our clunky, beefy, mellifluous footwear favorites:
The original Sorel, with a nubuck leather upper, waterproof construction and a removable, washable felt inner boot.
1964 Premium T CVS Boot
A more casual waterproof boot, featuring a waxed canvas upper and recycled felt liner.
Ankeny Mid Boot
Full-grain waterproof leather upper for this slightly more refined outdoor boot, which you might want to save for spring.
Sorel Dude Moc
For relaxing days at home in front of the fireplace. Wool and suede leather with a removable footbed.
Intrepid Explorer XT
