Baffin Apex are what I use. Best boot I've ever owned. Never had cold toes in them, and I've used them in temps down to -30. If temps are above 20, I wear other boots.

If you are thinking of Mucks, try Field and Stream's version. Instead of using thinsulate it uses Aerogel. The result is an extremely light "muck" boot with the equivalent of ~ 2000 grams of insulate.

Mine are going on their third ice season. Super warm, easy on and off and comfortable. Plus, they are cheap.

I've had my Predator's for 5-6 years and they have never failed me. Heavy but very warm. I'm surprised at the previous post stating they leaked. I have heard good things about Baffin too.

You need to check out the Baffin line of boots, I have had my pair for around 10 years and I NEVER had issues of cold feet. Joes sporting goods is the place to go for these boots, they have good sales. I would recommend the Apex boot (I believe its fully leather on the outside)

Not too bad. I use smartwool socks with them & that seems to reduce any sweat.

I wouldn't go for a long hike in them but they're great for a day hole hopping on the ice. Quote:

For me, with circulation issues, it really depends on the use.

For just standing out on the ice, the best boots that I have had were Cheapy nylon pull on boots (I'l talking the 15 buckers) that I Scotch Guarded to keep from getting wet feet drilling holes.

I have a pair of the $100 + froo froo insulated this and insulated that, and my toes would freeze in the deer stand.

So IMO forget Label Shopping, and get what works for YOUR feet.

I've had good luck with Cabela's Inferno boots. If you really want to warm them up, get some after-market insoles with wool and reflectix. Really warm set up.

I have had the ice kings for 4+ years now. I have never had cold feet once. I must be lucky, no ripped seams yet
