“Where did you get those snow boots?” That’s a question I’m asked all the time when I wear my just below-the-knee lace-up gray boot with furry trim. They’re Sorel Cate the Great and true the brand, they’re “fashionable and functional.”
I actually got them shortly after I moved to Denver in 2010. I’ve worn them strolling through ski towns to hitting the trail for easy to moderate snowshoeing. I know they’re not typical of a snowshoe winter hiker, but I love that they are tall and keep my pants dry. They’ve definitely worked well for me on the trail for hikes under 5 miles. I’ve put them through the winter adventure ringer and they’ve held up extremely well. I’m hoping Sorel will revive this style soon so I can snag a new pair. After 7 winters, the treads are showing their wear. I love the boots and have worn them a lot!
Now the Cate the Great boot is a wedge, so if you want the ones I have, you’ll have to search sites like Poshmark and Ebay. I did and found a few pairs up for sale. Good luck finding the boot everyone will ask you where you got it.
