We have almost nothing but positive things to say about the Sorel Tivoli High II. An update of the company's classic Tivoli, the II has a new look (including a techier-looking wrap-around sole and new fabric combinations), but maintains the performance of its predecessor. This is not the warmest boot that we reviewed, but it will still keep your feet toasty for short trips out in frigid weather and longer jaunts in milder temperatures. Performance-wise, this product is very similar to the Editors' Choice winning Sorel Tofino, but has a notably different look. We think the Tivoli is a better choice if you seek a winter boot that's a bit more casual and has less faux fur.
In addition to the Sorel Tivoli High II line of some sweet new colors including leather and felt, the Tivoli High comes in a shorter Tivoli II model. Sometimes you don't need a towering 11.5" boot, and we get that. At 7" high, the Tivoli II would be a great option for a stylish around town boot.
