Suggestions for New Snow Boots
#1
My old Baffins have finally started leaking so its time for some new snow boots. After a quick look online I'm kinda leaning towards a pair of Sorels like these http://www.sorel.com/mens-caribou-wool-b...34#start=2 however I haven't made up my mind. Anyone have any suggestions for some quality winter foot wear?

Here's my criteria for a good boot:

1) They must keep my feet warm.

2) I want to use them for cold weather camping, snow shoveling, general cold weather work around the property.

3) They must keep my feet warm.

4) They must be waterproof. No ifs, ands or buts. I wanna stand in 4 inches of water for hours on end and still be dry. Uberwaterproof.

5) They must keep my feet warm.

6) I don't care much what they look like, function is more important.

7) They must keep my feet warm.

8) Price range should be in the $100 - $200 range.

9) They must keep my feet warm.

I have a big pair of Sorels for around the house for shoveling and working outside. It's a great brand that is hard to beat.

However, for more athletic adventures, such as winter hiking and snow shoeing, I used these;

I suggest shopping Sierra Trading Post. They almost always have 35%-40% off coupons which makes their stuff good deals even with shipping. They usually have nice brands of stuff although sometimes not in the right size since it's usually closeout stuff.

Last year I bought a whole set of Columbia Omni Heat winter gear.... Coat, snow pants, snow boots, and gloves and paid around $200 for everything from them. (Of course, it's hardly snowed since....) They specialize in outdoor clothing.

This year got a pair of Keen leather boots for like $80 and the cheapest price anywhere else online was $120.... Cabelas had them for $160.

I think they have the Sorel brand too. Just make sure you know your size because their return policy is a bit of a pain.....but the prices make it worth ordering.

I'm wearing some 5.11 Tactical 8" winter boots right now. I wear them daily. They meet all of your requirements.

Red Wing Irish Setters rubber/neoprene boots.

Keep my feet warm, dry, and warm. Good lug sole. Rinse off with hose when I step in manure. Use them all year round.

Wore these for two years laying 8 inch yelomine across the mountains in central PA. They do the job.

A pair of their lighter "chore" versions for muddy summer work, plus you can roll them down.

Click your size on the left (or a range of sizes) and then look at what they have in your size. They have quite a few Sorel boots but not sure if in your size. Quite a few very nice looking solid warm waterproof snow boots.

Then go online and find a 35% off coupon (or wait for them to post a 40% one on their Facebook page) and there ya go.

Although I like Sorel pack boots I wouldn't trust them to stand in four inches of water. Splashing through some shallow creeks or puddles yes.

I do like and sometimes love my Muck boots. You will be able to stand in water all day with them. The down side they're quite as warm as pack boots, but I do use them stand hunting and unless it really cold they're fine. Light to moderate activity no problem. They do dry quicker than the rubber lined boots in my experience, so if you suffer from sweaty feet that may be a consideration. The great upside of pack boots is the ability to remove the liner and or have another pair to insert. It really depends on your primary application.

I checked out the website, but I have large feet (13-14 wide depending on manufacturer) and the selection was pretty thin in my size. They did have the Trezeta Heatseeker boots for 30% off which I thought were out of reach price wise. Thanks for the tip.
