Sorel Kitchner Frost High Review
Winter boots often times are full of function, but as many of us know, most lack fashion. While I am not a fashionista, I do enjoy a good looking and functioning piece of gear. The Sorel Kitchner Frost High is a winter boot that has the classic leather outer and a rubber toe box area. The leather goes half way up the calf and is lined to keep your boot and lower leg warm in the cooler weather. While hiking and walking the dogs in frigid winter temperatures, I found the boots to keep me plenty warm, but not to the point where my feet are sweating bullets.
The sole of the boot is made of a softer rubber that gives you a soft ride and provides good traction. The Kitchner holds up very well when it comes to winter slush and snow, keeping your feet nice and dry. While the Sorel Kitchner’s are waterproof, they don’t go up as high as the leather goes. The waterproof section goes up to approximately the top of your ankle.
For style, I think the Curry, Turkish Coffee looks the best. It looks good with jeans, khakis, and pretty much any other shade you can think of. As far as fit goes, the upper on the Kitchner Frost High fits pretty close to your leg and if you feel like being a little spunky, you can fold over the leather upper and there is a flannel lining you can show off. While this isn’t something that I would take advantage of, those who like to push the envelope with style might find it appealing.
Overall, I found the Sorel Kitchner Frost High to be my favorite winter boot to date. The Kitchner Frost High retails for $185, which is a little spendy, but given the materials used and the timeless look, I think you will get your money’s worth.
