Sorel Men’s 1964 Premium T CVS Review
As we are in the height of winter and temperatures have become bone chilling and wet snow and slush are abundant, it’s nice to have a boot that can keep us warm and dry, yet fashionable. I’ve been testing out the Sorel 1964 Premium T CVS Boots over the past few months and although they aren’t needed all winter long, they sure do come in handy in the more extreme winter weather conditions. Now I must admit, the 1964 Premium T CVS boots are a little clunky, so they aren’t something that I am going to wear around all season long. I tend to prefer smaller boots when there is little to no snow out and when temperatures are moderate.
When the winter weather conditions get a little more extreme, I like to have a winter boot that will keep me warm and dry with less care for looks. The Sorel boots I tested have a waterproof vulcanized rubber that goes up a couple inches high from the ground and the rubber also covers the toe. Recently I went to the movie theatre and when I came out, I noticed the shopping center plow decided to push all of the parking lots wet slush around my car, at least it felt like that. Typically with a winter shoe or lightweight boot, you would still get your feet wet and cold while cleaning off your car. With the 1964 Premium T CVS boots, I was able to clean off the snow on my car and slop through the wet slush with ease.
The inside of the boots have a removable insulated felt inner boot to keep your feet nice and cozy. Now the felt insulation is not as warm as down if you are standing still, but if you are moving a little, your feet are sure to stay plenty warm in even some of the coldest temps, Sorel claims -40 F. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I wasn’t able to test the boots to this temperature. On the outside of these inner liners is a nylon shell that covers the heel of the boot liner. This is nice because if there were no liner, you would typically find the liner starting to pill up.
The upper of the boot is made of a waxed canvas that helps keep out snow and wetness. I tested out the brown color and although I liked the way the boots performed, I kind of felt like a kid back in the day with the old school looks. Now I wouldn’t use these boots in more strenuous activities such as snowshoeing, but for in town and around the house use, I think the Sorel 1964 Premium T CVS is a great option.
