sorel.com is a line of winter boots. The boot has for some time been prominent in Canada for its high calibre and warmth. The Sorel line was presented in 1962 by Kitchener, Ontario-based Kaufman Rubber Co. (later known as Kaufman Footwear), and turned into the world's top of the line cool climate boot.
In the late spring of 2000, Kaufman Footwear went bankrupt, and the Sorel trademark was purchased by Columbia Sportswear. Following Columbia's buy, the Sorel brand was extended to different items, for example, nylon outerwear and other business related garments. Before Kaufman's insolvency, Sorel boots were made just in Canada, headquartered in Quebec; today they are delivered outside of Canada, chiefly in China (2012) or Vietnam.
