SOREL x Chloé boot, $515, by Chloé at Nordstrom, Westfield Valley Fair and chloe.com
Paris by way of the Pacic Northwest—boot brand SOREL has teamed with French maison Chloé to create an all-weather boot that’s both utilitarian and chic.
Founded within 10 years of each other, the unlikely pair shares an emphasis on classic techniques and a commitment to craftsmanship. Influenced by the concurrent heritage of both brands, the partnership is a lesson in refining a practical staple.
Gold accents and a rich layer of shearling bring Parisian panache to SOREL’s classic Joan of Arctic boot—balancing the functional rubber-bottomed soles that have become a signature of the brand with a bit of splash. Waterproof suede and an insulated lining mean full protection from the elements, making this the perfect choice for an après-ski tread.
