    rubber boots with foot warmers in them. I think they are called boot warmers, and are like handwarmers that go in your boots work great

    Any waterproof boots with thinsulate will work.They key to great warmth is proper sizing and a quality sock configuration.

    Here's the key:
    1. Get them a half size too big.
    2. Get a pair of Smartwool Hiking Liner socks (they're black, ultra thin, and made of merino wool)
    3. Put on a pair of those charcoal toe warmer thingy's. They stick on to your liner socks. (this step is optional, and I only use these things on really cold days. Not good if you need to walk much- only good for extended tree stand sitting)
    4. Put a pair of Smartwool Hunting Extra Heavy OTC socks on over the liner socks.

    The extra room created by getting the boots a little bit big will allow circulation. Don't tie your boots too tight. You need your feet to get good blood flow. Move your toes a ton.

    Smartwool can't be beat.

    Lacrosse pack boots with wool socks. I love 'em. I've been freezing my cajones off in a tree, but my feet weren't cold. Seriously. But my AlphaBurlies with wool socks are toasty, too. Both are gusseted and waterproof.

    Took the typing right out of my fingers! I got a pair for last season and I can't wait to be able to wear them again but they are no good when its 80-95 degrees!

    Just my own experience: Thinsulate + wool + toe warmers won't work for late season unless there's enough Thinsulate - bare minimum 1000. If you can get to your stand without your toes getting cold, Arcticshield Boot Insulators or Icebreaker Insulated Boot Blankets work great.

    You don't want to hike in them but if you put them on when you get set up, they'll keep in the heat you've got. Last year I had on 600gm boots with toe warmers, and dropped one of my ArcticShields on the way to the stand. So rather than hike back after it, I used the one I had on my right foot. After about an hour my left foot was so cold I had to leave. But my right foot was just fine.

    I use Lacrosse Burly 1200. But, the trick is where wool with a synthetic liner sock and change them when you get to your treestand. Just put them in a zip lock.

    I went this route last year and it was the warmest my feet have been in years. Go wih the -100 or -120 degree version and a good pair of socks with a high wool conent.

    Better yet just take your boots off once in your stand and slid your feet into the boot blankets with the hand warmers already in there. You wont believe how warm and comfortable your feet will be.

    definately wear wool socks. even if your feet sweat from walking the wool will still keep them warm.

    Those boots or Lacrosse Hunting pac boots I have had great luck with both up to -30 ice fishing & well below freezing while on stand for several hours.

    For all of you guy wearing muck. I am trying to understand how they can be any good. To me they look like they have a rubber outer membrane which wont allow your feet to breathe so your sweat will just stay.

    Please enlighten me as my feet get colder by each year and need something new.
