Sorel takes its name from a Quebec town known for its steel production and shipbuilding efforts during World War II. It's a fitting moniker for a brand that calls its rugged boots and shoes “footwear for the fearless." Founded in 1962 by Canadian rubber manufacturer A. R. Kaufman, Sorel produces all-season, all-terrain, top-quality shoes and sneakers, tundra-ready snow boots, and high-fashion sandals — using materials such as waterproof leather, recycled felt, and plush shearling. From the Joan of Arctic — a knee-high, women's winter boot topped off with a faux fur snow cuff — to the unisex Caribou boot, Sorel's goods help you brave the elements in style. Originally based in Kitchener, Ontario, Sorel is now a subsidiary of Columbia Sportswear Company and operates out of Portland, Oregon.
The temperatures are tanking (we miss summer already!), so shopping for some new kids' outerwear is essential. Kids can play outside for hours with fleece-lined, waterproof boots from Sorel, and puffy coats and vests keep tiny torsos snug.
Columbia sportswear has become a ubiquitous outerwear brand for a reason: Their garments are durable enough for the great outdoors yet stylish enough to incorporate into kids' everyday wardrobes. Keep little ones warm this winter with these jackets, fleece zip-ups, snow suits, and hat-and-mitten sets.
