Sorel Men's Chesterman™ Sneaker

With all-weather protection and rugged lug traction, think of the kicked-back Chesterman as sneakers with snow tires.

Tried to find these in a men's size 12 on Amazon but they were out of stock, so I came over to Sorel to get a pair. I'm pretty particular about footwear and these seemed to be just what I've been looking for, so I bought them.
The pair I received were true to size, fit like a glove right out of the box. First few times I wore them outside though, it was as if I had strapped plywood to my feet, just no give to them at all. Thought I'd just have to wear them for a while before they'd break in. Then I remembered an old shoe salesman's trick, back when I still bought shoes in shoes stores. They would take the shoes out of the box and bend them in half to take the stiffness out of them. Tried that, rolling them back and forth like a slinky, at which point they pretty much became an extension of my feet.
The soles are fantastic on snow, grip like you're walking on velcro. Don't know how long the soles will last, only because they're made from what seems to be a relatively soft rubber. Kind of like snow tires that you wear. Well constructed and, as advertised, very warm shoes.
Winter's not over here in Colorado, yet, so I'll add to my review if my observations change by April...or May...

I split time between Colorado and New England, so I'm used to cold and wet weather. These shoes are amazing for both. Walking the dog in the snow has not been an issue, nor have my feet gotten too hot when I wear them inside. They also have enough style to wear to work or the bar. I wish I had these years ago.
I'm not sure if this is a new product or not, but I hope Sorel keeps making these. They will catch on sooner or later, if they haven't already.

Great shoes! I was afraid they would be too warm but they are just right; I'll be able to wear them in warmer days too. Very nice casual look.

Still waiting for snow in NYC, so can't say much about how useful they are in the snow yet.
I'm still wondering if these sneakers are waterproof, judging from the material, it doesn't seem like it.
Although a bit heavy, it does seem like they are great sneakers for snowy weather, the sole seems to give great grip and the material seems to do a good job keeping the foot warm.
