Après-ing in your ski boots? Rookie mistake. The Sorel 1964 Cozy boot will be your new best friend after a long day in ski boots and is great if you only have room to pack one pair of shoes for a slopeside vacation.

The waterproof waxed canvas upper and PU coated synthetic overlays are rugged enough to endure sloppy conditions while keeping style and “steeze,” if you will, a top priority. The molded rubber sole gives you the feel of cushioned Nike’s, a welcome reprieve from hard plastic punishment. My favorite part? The Microfleece knit lining that is softer than a Patagonia Synchilla.

I’ve gotten several compliments on these boots worn both at après and casually around town. I like to think of them as my cozy insulated high-top sneakers. No more clomping around in unnecessarily large oversized boots, these pack down small and look great.
