I’ve decided my feet are not going to freeze this winter.
So, I ordered these Caribou boots from Sorel. They’re toasty as can be — supposedly good down to 40 below!
For someone who is prone to stepping in puddles, it doesn’t hurt that they’re waterproof either.
They run big, so get a size smaller (I’m a 10 and the 9 fit me perfectly). Got ‘em for $88 from Amazon.
All in all, this feels like a very responsible purchase. I think my mother will be proud.
