Sorel Boot Winter Preview!
Take a peek at winter’s cutest companions.
It may look like sunny weather outside, but the fashion industry is thinking deep slush and snow! Last week, Sorel unveiled their latest collection, and I can’t wait to say, “Baby, it’s cold outside.”
Sorel has a well deserved reputation, since the 60s, for well-crafted, seriously insulated and heavy duty cold weather gear. For fall 2010, you could get dizzy trying to figure which cute short or tall boot you’re going to adopt. “Last year, people were pleasantly surprised by Sorel’s new fashionable direction,” said Linda Reese, Director of Marketing Communications at Sorel. “We wanted to push the bar even further this year with chic silhouettes and playful fabrics, colors and patterns.”
Whether you’re grabbing a pair of chic, sturdy low topped Tivoli boots like the ones on the left ($85 -$130, sorel.com) for weekend play, dressing up for the office in the faux-fur trimmed Joan of the Artic lace up boots ($130 to $400, sorel.com) or off to après ski in the crushed suede (yes, it’s waterproof!) Firenzy boots ($160 – $200, sorel.com), you’ll know three things: you’ll look adorable, you’ll be warm, and most importantly, you won’t fall down. Each Sorel boot has a handcrafted waterproof vulcanized rubber shell with a ridged lug outsole for traction. All boots are waterproofed, they have a removable recycled felt inner boot and 2.5mm felt frost plug that protects your toes down to -25 degrees below zero.
Their Sorrelington rain boots ($100 -$120, sorel.com) are also adorable and can be worn in really cold weather. They have a bonded felt frost foot plug that insulate your feet, keeping them dry and warm in winter slush.
Sorel boots have been worn by Arctic explorers, winter sports enthusiasts and people who hate to have cold toes for over 40 years. If you’re one of those people who like to shop now for Christmas, keep in mind that there are Sorel boots for men and children too.
The boots will be available online at their site (sorel.com) in July, 2010 and at select Sorel retailers like Nordstrom, Amazon.com, REI, Journeys and Zappos.com in August.
