Fit

Eddie Bauer Lukla Pro Waterproof Lightweight Hiker
Perfect shoe
Not too heavy, comfy and breathable. Found These in a different store but they were over priced, I want to Moosejaw to check and they had them on sale but they were out of stock so they custom ordered them from the manufacturer. Very happy so far!

Sorel Men’s Caribou Boot
Not like Sorel boots from the 80s
I've owned a pair of Sorel Caribous since the early 80's. Tied them loose and slipped them on and off for years. Changed the liners 3 times during this period. Feet never got cold even on the coldest days. Got the new boots, tried them on and the fit was perfect. Toes had room for any socks I chose ...

Sorel Men’s Caribou Boot
Excellent snow boots!
These are best snow boots I have ever bought. When I first got them they seemed to feel "slightly" small, but after wearing them a few times they have loosened up. I'm size 11, and they now feel right on the money. Another thing, you want the insulating material to come together when you lace up. Do...

Size

Eddie Bauer Lukla Pro Waterproof Lightweight Hiker
Shoes run a full size small, at least for me.
Ordered a size 12 and could barely get them on my feet. Tried to return them to the local Eddie Bauer store in the mall only to have them tell me that since I ordered them through Amazon, I’d have to follow their return process for their shoes. The shipping label that came with the shoes clearly sai...

Sorel Men’s Caribou Boot
Do not buy from this seller!!!
I received the incorrect size upon receiving my order. I wore them twice before realizing the mistake (thinking that I just had to break them in). Now the seller has my returned boots and won’t refund me since they are slightly worn. They said they would return the boots back to me, but I really jus...

Eddie Bauer Lukla Pro Waterproof Lightweight Hiker
Short and Narrow
I really wanted to like this shoe. It does in fact look great, but as soon as I took it out of the box, it looked obviously short and narrow. To be fair, I normally wear an 11w in most shoes, but some brands I can get by with a standard width. Visually it looks extremely short when on and looking do...

Sorel Men’s Caribou Boot
Junk. Soles are paper thin plastic. 👎🏻
Junk. These aren’t the Sorels I grew up with. I sold these 20 years ago and loved them. I gave mine to a friend and many years later found myself needing a fresh pair. Sorel stopped making them in Canada and now make them in China. The soles feel plastic. Not the dense vulcanized rubber of old. Fine...
