Let me start out by saying that MY FEET SUCK! ha, ha They sweat and there's no getting around it. I've tried tons of sock scenarios, etc... blah, blah and nothing has solved my issue. They have all allowed me to stay on stand longer, so that's a plus. But do you think for cold weather stand hunting, 1200gr is too much? I have always wore 1,000 gr in the past. I'm also talking about a hunting boot and not an insulated rubber boot.
