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. This tradition continues with updates to classic products as well as the introduction of many new styles.
Since becoming a division of Columbia Sportswear Company in 2000, Sorel has expanded and now offers an exciting range of comfortable, functional and stylish products. Sorel footwear meets the rigorous demands of today’s active lifestyle...from snowmobiling and hiking to taking the kids sledding or skiing. Sorel continues to earn the trust of consumers by constantly providing quality products that are warm, dry, comfortable and affordable.
