I have found the BEST prices by far are on ebay. go to your local sporting store, try them on and then buy them on ebay for 1/2-1/3 of the price

Mine are 400 gram, and I wear the thickest Smartwool socks on the market with them if it's at all cold. My hands and feet get cold easily, though, so your mileage may vary.

hunting sneekers for those hot days and 600 grams for everything else. staying warm helps you stay still longer on those cold days.

Try the polypropoleyne? socks with wool or thinsulate socks over with 200 gram boots keeps my feet warm to around zero ice fishing or hunting in Wisconsin.The new poly stuff really works.

There were damn few things my father and I agreed on but he was right when he said to take care of your feet, you're only going to get one pair. They have to last you the rest of your life. Invest in the best shoes/boots you can afford. You usually get what you pay for!

What about in-soles?? I picked up a pair of Wolverine 600-Gram Ridgelines from Cabelas this year. They are well insulated but the in-soles are not very comfortable. What are you guys using?? Are you gelling?? lol

For winter hunting, I would go with 400 to 600+ gram boots, wool socks with liner.Anything less and my feet get cooooold!Im running Sorel's full tilt camo 400 gram. for hiking in snow there great , but if I stop for long time my feet start to get a little cold.

I usually just wear my redwing steel toe work boots. They are quite heavy, but they are also warm and very tough, also waterproof.I have had them for about 4 years now, and wear them all of the time, as long as you keep them oiled they will last you.
