Sorel Men's 1964 Pac Nylon Boot
The Go-To Winter boot
Love the boots. I am an attorney and wear these all the time in inclement weather. Got for the look and the utility (waterproof, removable inserts). Can tuck pants into easily. I'm a 9.5 wide width and went with a size ten. Fits great.
One note however (as other reviewers have noted as well) the boots require some breaking in. Out of the box they can rub up against your leg and cause skin abrasions. Some breaking in though and the boots wear comfortably.

I brought theSe boots for my 17yr old son, must say they are the nicest and I was kinda jealous that I had sent mine back without even trying them. They fit pretty much true to size, stylish, would definitely recommend

This snug but true to size fitting boot really is a sturdy boot. It has the feel of an all-leather boot in terms of sturdiness but the waterproof nylon makes the boot light. The liner is well-constructed and is interchangable and the boot is attractive as well. I've owned a pair of Sorel Caribou and this is my second pair of winter boots and I'd buy them again. Going further, I'd recommend these to family and friends and would buy them for my husband & kids.

Pac '64 boots
No need to order in wide size, plenty of room inside. Liner is plush and pliable but very sturdy, seems it would keep boot stable on slim feet as well. I live in Norway, so these boots have gotten a thorough testing. Bottoms are medium thickness, probably not suitable for negotiating sharp rocks, but well suited for everyday winter trekking. Tread is ok, side-to-side grip is fair, front-to-back grip is good but not great, would not recommend for extreme hiking, but then Sorel makes a great glacier boot. I've not once experienced cold toes or ankles even during day-long excursions, and the only moisture inside seems to be from condensation, not from leakage. Overall a great winter boot, and waterproof enough to keep feet dry and warm all day even in deep heavy snow.

I would definetly recommend this boot for anyone who spends alot of time outdoors during winter. Personally my work requires i spend at least an hour a day walking outdoors usually through areas that have not undergone snow removal. My feet stay dry when i get home and compared to alot of other styles of boots these ones are actually fashionable enough to wear with a pear of jeans or something on your days off.

Keeps Ankles warm, at least...
I purchased these boots based upon the reviews. Today's weather was about 30deg with a little snow so I wore them for the 1st time with a pair of Wool sox. My toes were still a little cold but the ankle was very warm. Also the boot is very big/clunky on the foot so walking is a little odd but I'm sure they will be great for sloppy winter weather but not good for standing as I wait for the bus to keep my toes warm.

Excellent product but rough on the skin!
I brought these boots to wear in New York for my holiday. They handled the 2 foot of snow very well and the grip was excellent on the ice. However, the only negative was how much chaffing was caused even though I wore very thick socks which left my skin very red and sore!
However, they did the task I wanted so I am very happy with it.

this really does what is says it does
So I saw 40 below on the label and thought this is exactly what I need. I was heading out to Winnipeg and had just heard that it was colder than Mars. It was hitting minus 40 and was the worst winter on record. At that temperature the conditions are out to get you so I was prepared to pay a premium to stay safe and warm. I headed out to Snow and Rock on the way to the airport and I'm so glad I did. These boots are completely water proof, comfortable and look pretty cool. I've made a life saving life time purchase for a bargain price of 99 pounds. I have been trudging in snow that goes right up to my backside but still my feet remain dry and comfortable. For once a product actually does what it says on the label and were even comfortable to fly in.
