About a month ago, I thought winter was over. I ordered a pair of Sorel boots anyway. I know winter will exist forever, and even if I do not always plan to live somewhere with 4 seasons, I always go back to New Jersey for Thanksgiving and Chinese New Year. Of course after I ordered them, we had 3 snow storms. They did not come in time. However we have had a ton of precipitation since I got them and they’re super warm, so no regrets either way! They keep your feet cosy up to -40F/C. Pricy, but I highly recommend them. Top of the line! Super high quality that will last you forever.
