Someone learn me something about insulated boots

So I'm thinking about buying my dad a good pair of insulated Lacrosse boots for Christmas.

But here's the kicker.


I really don't know the difference between all the insulation options.


He hunts south Louisiana and Copiah County, Mississippi.

Lowest likely temp he'll encounter is in the low 20s

what do yall suggest?

800gram should be enough... although depends on person. Hell i wear my 1200 gram rubber boots anytime its 35 degree or colder "as long as there is no long walk to the stand"

Skip the Lacrosse and go with Muck. I've had both and the Mucks are wayyyy more comfortable. Your pops will appreciate it.

Cannot go wrong with a pair of Mucks.

I wear regular crew socks with mine even when it's "cold" and my feet are never cold.

re: Someone learn me something about insulated boots
Hat – I live in Canada so its likely overkill but if he is sitting in a tree stand and your feet aren’t moving you do get cold. So based on that if you need warm boots go w a sorel or baffin w/ a liner these are really warm even when you are not moving. The other key is good socks – I love merino wool socks they aint yer paw paws wool socks – warm soft and sweat evaporates thru them. The other thing to consider are some hot pocket handwarmers – throw them in your boots for toasty toes. Now if he is walking lots while hunting all bets are off – when bird or bunny hunting in the winter on all but the coldest days (say below 10 deg) I wear uninsulated boots otherwise my feet sweat too much. If he has some warm boots and just needs a little more on really cold days I would suggest good socks and a throw a hot pocket in each boot.

Yeah I'm thinking the minimum insulation will be the way to go. Thankfully we wear the same size shoe (roughly) so I will try them on first and make sure they're comfortable




He's always been a Lacrosse guy but I'll look at the Muck as well

Definitely...I flipped the pirogue once while hunting, took off my socks and had bare feet in my mucks. Feet were the warmest part of my body.

I wear Lacross AlphaBurly.

The rubber coated neoprene boots seem to last longer than the plain rubber. IMHO

I have never tried muck boots but I don't find mine uncomfortable to walk in. I usually walk about 3/4 mile to my stands.

Make sure to get ones that have the calf strap that pulls the boot tight so it does not flop making all that noise.

I love my Muck Boots, I have had the "Wetlands" model for about 5 years.

My only gripe (mostly due to my skinny arse legs) is that I sound like a herd of cattle coming through the woods when the top half of the boot hits my leg and springs back, clunking every step.

I use Muck because of how comfortable they are to walk in. My first pair was the lightest model made. Was like walking through the woods in jogging shoes. Our walk is never under 1 mile.

There best insulated boots are good to about 40F weather for a few hours sitting on a deer stand. After that, cold feet sets in. Now walking around, they are good to about 35F all day.
