Columbia is first and foremost an outdoor company. Yet Columbia's commitment to innovation maintains a strong presence throughout their entire product offering. The latest Columbia Omni technology--Omni-Heat?--is the ultimate body heat management system for the outdoors, incorporating thermal insulation and thermal reflective technology. Thermal insulation technology helps maintain warmth and prevent heat loss with the highest heat retention per gram in the industry. Thermal heat retention helps regulate the temperature in footwear by reflecting and retaining the warmth that the foot generates, while dissipating moisture and excess heat.
Featuring the innovative Omni-Heat? technology, the unique Columbia Bugaboot? Omni-Heat? boot for women is like a space blanket for the feet. The thermal Omni-Heat? membrane reflects body heat back into the boot for lightweight warmth without the need for bulky insulation. Two hundred grams of Thinsulate? insulation offer cozy protection to -25° F below zero; the non-marking, dual-density Omni-Grip? outsole lends gripping traction in all types of conditions and on varying terrain.
For men, the ultra-lightweight Columbia Bugalite? 2 Omni-Heat? boot offers the same heat-reflecting warmth of the Omni-Heat? thermal reflective liner and is insulated with two hundred grams of Thinsulate?. This lace-up men's boot boasts a waterproof synthetic and leather upper with a removable EVA insole. The durable Omni-Grip? rubber outsole is specifically designed for the demands of winter weather and ensures optimal traction on cold, wet and slippery terrain.
Acquired by the Columbia Sportswear Company in the year 2000, Sorel footwear has built a solid reputation women's jackets on being uncomplicated and unpretentious, created with top-notch craftsmanship and attention to detail. Often featured in popular fashion magazines, yet relied upon by outdoor enthusiasts for providing below-zero protection in severe conditions, Sorel boots take the lead when it comes to offering stylish choices that are built to withstand chilly temperatures. Whether it's a boot for the kids or a shoe to wear for everyday commuting, find a variety of reliable choices in the Onlineshoes.com collection of Sorel winter boots and shoes for men, women, boys and girls.
Sorel makes it easy for women to step out in head-turning style no matter how low the mercury drops with the Sorel Cate the Great boot. Named after a Russian empress and inspired by a pair of Cree winter moccasins, this women's winter boot conquers cold days, deep snow and slick streets with savvy style. Featuring a waterproof full grain leather and suede upper with beautiful faux fur around the cuff, this women's snow boot pairs well with everything from jeans to dresses to outdoor gear. A recycled felt Sorel InnerBoot provides warmth down to -25° below zero, while a rugged vulcanized rubber shell with a herringbone outsole ensures reliable traction on wet and slippery surfaces.
Another Sorel favorite, one that is often imitated yet never equaled, the men's Sorel Caribou boot delivers timeless style and waterproof, seam-sealed construction. Since 1972, the Sorel Caribou lace-up boot has earned its reputation for warmth, durability and comfort by offering protection to millions who are dealing with deep snow, harsh storms and the biting cold of long winters. This men's lace-up boot sports a nubuck leather upper, a handcrafted vulcanized rubber shell and is rated to -40° F below zero. Finished with a herringbone rubber outsole for enhanced traction and durability, the Sorel Caribou boot for men is a classic choice for cold-weather work and outdoor recreation.
