From Working Men To Women’s Fashion
Sorel is a Canadian line of boots and other clothing founded in 1962. Initially the label specialized in men’s work boots, and for decades they crafted line after line of outdoor, durable footwear for men. Sorel shoes were worn on farms, oil rigs, building sites and mountain hikes. The brand was acquired by Columbia Sportswear in 2000, a booming Canadian company. Since its acquisition in 2000 Sorel has been revolutionizing its image, completely overhauling its target audience and product. Originally only popular as a work-boot, Sorel’s audience has been turned on its head and today is made up of over 70% women. They maintain extensive lines of Sorel heels, boots and other styles of shoe, each pair made unique with adventuring and working in mind - just as it’s always been for the brand. Sorel also has plans to expand and open up some flagship boutiques. In 2014 they set up a pop-up store in Manhattan to high degrees of success, a good indicator of their growing popularity amongst the world’s most stylish women.
