Pursuitist Recommended: Men’s Sorel Caribou boots. Founded in Ontario, Canada, in 1908, Sorel has long been synonymous with cold-weather footwear. The first company to combine durable leather uppers with waterproof rubber bottoms and a warm felt liner, Sorel makes boots that are as much a winter tradition as snowmen and sledding. This is their original cold-weather classic, with a sherpa cuff and a removable insulated inner boot, Waterproof leather upper, and rubber sole.

Rated to -40° below zero, the Caribou is the timeless choice for cold-weather work and recreation. The nubuck leather upper and handcrafted vulcanized rubber shell are seam-sealed for complete waterproofness and lined with a removable 9mm ThermoPlus felt InnerBoot that traps heat next to your foot, where it belongs. Underfoot, a thick rubber midsole insulates the boot from cold ground, while the Sorel AeroTrac non-loading outsole provides sure footing.
