Bold colors, fun plaids and details — including contrast laces and menswear accents — make traditional boot player Sorel’s fall ’10 women’s collection a more fashionable one. The company, a division of Portland, Ore.-based Columbia Sportswear, may be continuing its fashion-forward initiative, but traditional winter features such as waterproof materials, fur trims and outsoles with ice-ready traction ensure that the boots and shoes can handle harsh weather. Sorel’s fall line will deliver to better department stores, outdoor shops and boutiques in August.
