Sorel Makes Rainboots Too: Women's Conquest Carly Glow Boot Review!

Sorel Women's Conquest Carly Glow Boot
in Nocturnal/Black
I recently came to the huge revelation that in my whole adult life, I've never owned a pair of rainboots!  I'm not sure why I've never owned a pair, as I can often be found in rainstorms and puddles--and I'm sometimes afflicted by wet feet.  Thinking back, the last pair of rubber boots I ever owned was in first grade.  The boots were a birthday present from a distant auntie, and the gift came with a matching umbrella.  After I outgrew the boots, I don't believe I ever received another pair.  Shockingly, it took me 36 years to realize that I've been bootless all this time.  How did I never notice?

After purchasing  all 5 of my kids another round of boots for the spring, I concluded that I should get myself a pair too.  After all, my feet go where their feet go--which means I should be properly outfitted for the worst mud, muck and mire.  I browsed the Sorel website and found the Women's Conquest Carly Glow Boot for $160.  They currently come in black/silver sage, and nocturnal/black, which is shown above.  I like that the nocturnal/black pair have a pink heel as an accent colour.  Both feature full-grain uppers, and vulcanized rubber for the body of the boot.

The arrival of my Sorel Women's Conquest Carly Glow Boots was fortuitous, as the next day it was pouring rain--and I had planned an outdoors excursion to Canada's Wonderland amusement park with the kids!  A rainstorm was forecast, and I was expecting to be walking around in the rain for 8 hours.

Well, walk we did for the entire day and my feet stayed dry and I found the boots to be very comfortable--even after 8 hours of walking on concrete.  The heels on the boots were just right for me, and they cushioned my soles.  The height of the boots were just right for everyday use and for city-living in general.

The Sorel Women's Conquest Carly Glow Boots were true to size, in my experience, and they were an excellent fit for me.  They come in women's sizes 5-12, and are available in half sizes up to size 11.  I wore them as slip-on boots, but they also unlace at one side to accommodate a wider calf.  The boots were well-made, but I did spy some excess glue left over on the leather pieces.  I also found that the boots scuffed easily.  However, neither fact detracted from this great pair of boots--and I'm looking forward to wearing these in rainy weather!

I was very pleased with the Sorel Women's Conquest Carly Glow Boot, and would like to see Sorel grow their rainboot line in the future and offer more selection of styles.  Moreover, I would love to see Sorel offer a men's boot as well as kid's rubber boot line.  I believe that they would be well-received!

  1. I love the splash of pink! Growing up Sorels were the only boots we would wear for snow. It's a quality product, I'm happy they're in the rain business (I like on the North Coast of BC, so that's something I need being so close to the ocean).

  10. I love your review of the Sorel boots. I think they are cute and I love the pink heel on them. I think Sorel makes amazing boots both for kids and adults! I have a pair of winter boots, but no rain boots from Sorel. Going to have to change that!

  13. I am loving these! A bit pricey but, I spent $15 on my current ones and I would not consider them as much more than campsite slippers. Not made for walking to anywhere but he outhouse! For someone that has had a severe problem from wearing flip flops in the rain, I think these would be well worth the investment!
