SOREL Footwear Fall 2011 Collection Preview

We’re getting blessed with rain every day this week (I’m thinking of this as a positive thing because of the trees and grass) so naturally my thoughts went back to my recent attendance to the SOREL FOOTWEAR Fall 2011 Footwear Collection preview. I can’t help but think of the cute, must-haves and stylish rain boots that SOREL will be offering for fall. I’m sure the sentence, “Oh how I wish I had on a pair now”, will be repeated in my mind, like today as I curse myself for wearing ballet flats (due to a slightly sprained ankle) while its pouring outside. Not only are SOREL FOOTWEAR incredibly functional (SOREL has put craftsmanship first in the pursuit of making products that last since 1962), they are super, super cute. Take this pair durable water and wind resistant Sorel 88‘s for instance

One of my many favorites – . It makes other rain boots seem wooden and boring, even the prints. These are comfy and won’t try to cut off the circulation to my calves. The Sorel 88 is a felt lined textile boot that gives a nod to the arctic expedition boots in Sorel’s™ past collections. The thick felt lining wraps your leg and the cushy PU midsole keeps you up off the ground and toasty warm. The rubber outsole’s lugs and nubs will keep you sure-footed during your snow endeavors.

My second favorites (there’s a tie) is a new direction for SOREL – a wedge heel. The Lux Leather Wedge is a chic full grain premium leather upper tall boot with molded rubber outsole and a 3” heel – classic chic style wearable with any look

The rubber “hacksaw” outsole was inspired by the Sorel™ Proflex snowboarding boot from the 90’s. A feature that provides the ultimate in traction.

Next, the elegantly crafted premium leather and canvas Cool Canvas Wedge, a stylish full grain tall leather boot with a waxed canvas upper and molded rubber outsole and a 3” heel like the Lux Leather Wedge. I love its equestrian aura, its perfect for running around the streets of New York

For a more playful, fun boot, the comfy and versatile Tivoli is just for you. Light as a sneaker with the warmth and protection of a Sorel boot, its waterproof shell is lined with 100g Thinsulate™ and a full fleece lining for insulation you can count on in cold weather. It also comes in a variety of great colors and prints (love the rose print)

Love trenchcoats? Then you’re sure to be a fan of the Milano Breve, the waterproof jacket for your feet.

This Sorel™ ‘trenchcoat’ will keep your feet warm and dry when it’s wet and nasty outside. The treated textile upper features a waterproof bootie for storm protection, and is incredibly lightweight and flexible. The belt buckle and buttons are functional so that you can customize your fit or roll it down for a casual waterproof low boot.
