14. Sorel Caribou 

Frank says: "I live 50 minutes west of Boston in a spot where it always gets the worst weather. If metro Boston gets three inches of snow, I’ll get six inches. Lucky me. I wear my Caribou when Armageddon hits. Greg Lucci of Gourmet told me stories of the Caribou being the first unofficial snowboard boot. He would literally strap them into his binding."
