Sorel Spring 2011

I was surprised to hear that Sorel is expanding it’s footwear line to include casual shoes for Spring 2011.

This season marks the brand’s inaugural spring line, which includes eight new looks for men and women, as well as six carryover styles that have been lightened up and modified for spring. For women, the collection focuses on vulcanized sneakers, Mary Jane shoes and sporty ballet flats, as well as fashion boots and rainboots. For men, there are sneakers, tasseled boat shoes and rugged, casual boots. Each style, priced between $70 and $100, pays homage to Sorel’s history, from the rubberized toecaps on the sneakers to the stitching on the heels.

And Koeberle already has plans for spring ’12. “In Sorel’s future, there may be a heel of some sort, perhaps an open-toe [shoe/sandal hybrid]. It’s key to stay true to who we are and not walk away from our heritage,” she said. “But the opportunity is limitless.”

I’m not really jazzed on the collection but I do think the Sorel rainboots are super cute.  I do really like the look of the first shoe on the right.
