OR – Sorel Launches New XT Collection

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

If you’ve been issued Sorel cold weather boots, it’s quite likely the -40 Deg F Conquest which is a class IC Sorel design and great for active outdoor use. The British Tan color has been around for quite awhile but the new Boulder on the Left caught my eye with its Grey hue.


Now, Sorel has unveiled the XT line for fall 2014. It incorporates 6 boots for a variety of application. There are separate boots for cold-wet and cold-dry applications. They range in capability from -40 Deg F to an amazing -100 Deg F. For me the ultimate is the Intrepid Explorer with a 12mm EVA midsole in addition to a removable 15mm Sorel Meltdown midsole.


The models are (l-r)
Intrepid Explorer XT -100 Deg F
Glacier XT XT -100 Deg F
Alpha Pac XT -60 Deg F
Caribou XT -40 Deg F
Conquest -40 Deg F
Not Show Bear XT -60 Deg f
