Best boots for cold?



Heading to ohio on december, need warm and dry feet. Looking at some muck arctic boots. What else is out there? Just need waterproof and heavy insulated. $100-$150

My Wolverines have worked well in Iowa winters. They were around $130 if I remember right. As long as you make sure the boot fits and has enough thinsulate, wear some nice smart wool socks and you can't go wrong with any of the brands people are gonna throw out there.

This is something you might want to try if you are hunting from a stand. When I went to Saskatchewan I bought a pair of boot blankets from Cabela's, they run like 50 bucks. When you get into the stand slide them on over your boots and throw a few hand warmers in each one. If you are in a blind and have room you can pull your boots off and just use the warmers. It sounds crazy but it works great and is a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a quality pair of brand new boots.

Worry more about how many grams than what brand.

I've been told this before, seems like a good idea

One pair of regular white socks, one pair of carhart wool socks, muck boots. My feet never get cold. Of course, it only gets about 20 degrees where I hunt.

It's more about having wool socks with the highest percentage of wool you can find. Needs to be 85% or more wool.

I wear lacrosse burly's that have a lot of thinsulate and fleece lined uppers. Those and wool socks keeps me dry and warm.

Like others have said, it rarely gets below 20 where I hunt.

re: Best boots for cold?


In my experience, the amount of walking I'm gonna hafta do enters the equation. I'm one of them fellers that when my feets get cold, I get cold all over. I've got one stand where I don't hafta walk very far and I use a pair of those black arctic boots with the wool liner and thick wool socks. Feet have never got cold in them. For the long walks in and out or over rougher ground, my Rockies have stood the test of time. I always carry a couple of those chemical handwarmers, too. Feet start gettin cold, I slip one of them down in my boot or under my foot. Main thing is keepin your feets dry. Wet feets=cold feets. I've got one stand that is 8 feet off the ground on one side and 40 feet off the ground on the other. In the late season muzzle loader hunt that stand is COLD when the wind is coming up the holler to that bluff face and hittin me dead on. That's when I take a rolled up sleepin bag with me and I pull that sleepin bag up to my chest and me and my feets stay warm and toasty.

If you plan on wearing multiple socks, make sure you try on the boots with them all on. If the boots cut off circulation, it doesn't matter how well insulated they are!

Really doesn't get that cold in S.E. Alaska. It's much more mild than the interior and in a normal winter I could count the days we get below 15 degrees on two hands. Average day is 20's and sometimes 30's.

I get colder when it's 40 and raining than 20 and snowing.
