Originally founded by William H. Kaufman Inc. in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, Sorel has long been associated with the development and distribution of durable, comfortable, cold-weather footwear since 1908. In the early 1960s, Sorel was the first to combine leather uppers, rubber bottoms and removable felt liners to make the warmest and driest winter boots available anywhere in the world. Concepts worked with Sorel on 2 classic models, the men’s Caribou and the women’s Joan of Arctic, using premium leathers, suede’s and waxed cotton on the uppers. Each boot comes with an alternate fleece lining, is water proof and rated for -30 fahrenheit.
Both are now available at Concepts and The Tannery locations.
