Just trying to find out what everyone thought the warmest boots were, hopefully from experience. A friend of mine has a pair of Herman survivors (hard to find now) that he bought at Wally world 5 years ago and he says that they are the warmest boots he has ever had and he paid $40 for them, so I guess they don't have to be the most expensive
I have cableas' brand 1200 gram thinsulate rubber boots. Love them! I have a liner sock and then a thicker sock over that and then the boot. Feet have never once gotten cold either sitting in the stand or riding the 4-wheeler in single digit temps.
I have some LaCrosse boots rated to -100 degrees. I don't know if they really will keep you warm that far below zero, but they have done well so far in temps as cold as minus 39. One tip about buying boots for extreme cold weather: get the next size larger than you nomally wear. That will allow you to wear heavier socks without making the boots tight - which can restrict blood flow. Looser is better in cold conditions.
*Winter hunting & ice fishing boot
*Men’s and ladies sizes – wide and double wide
*Weather rating: Extreme wear to colder than -20F – Colder temperatures apply if you choose larger and wider sizes
*Height from floor: Men’s -17”, Ladies -16”
•Foot – rubberized moosehide foot with a super flexible treaded rubber sole. Color: Black
•Gaiter Fabric – MossyOak® BreakUp, waterproof Poly Tri-Laminate with PVC lining
•Cord Lock Top – 1/8” Nylon Cord, Acetal/Nylon Pop Cord Lock
•Calf Strap Assembly – 1” black compression molded strap lock buckle (1,000 lb tensile strength); 1” black drab polypropylene webbing (800 lb tensile strength per inch)
•Ankle Strap Assembly – 1” compression molded Delrin strap lock buckle (1,000 lb tensile strength); 1” black drab polypropylene webbing (800 lb tensile strength per inch); 1” black Acetal/Nylon strap keepers (to guide and hold back webbing); 1” black Acetal/Nylon Uni-Loop (on each side to guide webbing)
•Boot Liner – 9mm polypropylene lined woolfelt liner
•Insoles - reflective insole, 9 mm woolfelt insole, trim-to-fit contour insole
-It is recommended to purchase an extra pair of 9 mm woolfelt liners and an extra pair of 9 mm woolfelt insoles to rotate the liners and insoles as needed (i.e. if they get wet).
-It is recommended to wear a medium-weight wool sock
My feet sweat laying in the goose blind in February. "Guide Gear 2,400 gram Thinsulate Ultra Insulation Rubber Boots" I bought mine from the sportsmansguide.com
I would not recommend these for long walks, they are far to warm
I have a pair of the Herman Survivors too, they're not the warmest but they're pretty awesome boots for 50 bucks. I worked construction with em for about 4 years and they've help us great aside from the soles splitting. Put some Dr schols in there and they're comfy as sneakers.
