With so many positive reviews on AT regarding boot insulation covers I decided to buy a pair. Pro Bass had them on sale for $29 so I ordered them. I wear a size 10 boot and size 10/11 they recommend a size Large. I also seen a few reviews saying they run small and I wanted easy to get on so I ordered Extra Large.

Guess what, I can’t even get my boots inside of these things! I have Rocky 1000 gram leather boots and they do have a large heavy heel. So if your buying a pair keep that in mind. I’m sure with gym shoes they are plenty big!

I’m very disappointed and willing to try a different brand. For those using boot covers and wearing a heavier boot what brand do you recommend? Any pointers on size is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

1000 gram boots are going to make your feet sweat if you walk any distance at all. Sweaty feet are going to become cold feet if you stationary for long in cold temperatures.

I wear a 12 and tried an XL with my hiking boots, not gonna happen. Tried it with a slipper, nope. I returned them.

Might try out suits but they're a lot more $. https://bootsuits.com/

Have you found these to be that superior to the Artic Shields or others?

Great. I ordered a pair also but in size large. I am wearing a size 10 boot as well. Oh well. If they don't fit I will be returning them.

I wear a size 13 and my xl Artic Shields fit fine. They are 10 + years old though. And like everyone says no need for the big insulated boots. Counter productive. I would not be caught without my Artic Shields when it gets below 20.

Definatly buy larger than you think and no need to wear much mor ethan low gram hiker boot with them.

They pack small. That I like.

When I knew I was going to use them, I'd wear un-insulated rubber boots. Easier to walk in and when I got to where I needed to be, and slipped the covers on, the warmth from my boots kept my feet comfortable. 1000gram boot is pretty big

I have those icebreakers booth covers https://www.amazon.com/Icebreaker-Blanket-Large-Mossy-Breakup/dp/B0002EET0Q and I wear a regular waterproof shoes to my stand. They fit perfectly and keep me warm all the time. No need to wear those heavy large boots. But it depends of course where you hunt. We hunt a private land about 90 acres. We have walking trails made so not much of a walk.

I wear some size 12 Red head 900 gram shoes and they fit fine in the XL size. Anything any bulkier would need the XXL.

I have a pair of the arctic shield boot covers, and they did nothing for me. I think my feet actually got colder w/ them on. A lot of guys on here recommended the"boot blankets" I think by icebreaker. I ordered a pair. We'll see.

Me too.

Although, I usually just wear my field blazers with an adhesive back handwarmer stuck inside on the top of each one. I think I could get by with tennis shoes with that combo. No need for heavy boots.
