The point is it varies from person to person. If you have ever had frost bit toes then you are susceptible to colder feet.

But love of the wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need - if only we had eyes to see.

I did after the suggestion during a conversation with Lathrop & Sons.  Made a huge difference for me.

i have hunted with Danners, Meindls, La Sportivas, Asolos and Hanwags and the Hanwag Alaska GTX were by far the best boot for comfort and keeping my feet dry. Keep trying them til you find a boot that works for you.

best boot for the money is the Irish Setter Elk Tracker - not super light weight but great boots / very comfortable and easy break in

  Thats a given, otherwise jam toes going downhill and cut off circulation with heavy sox.  Can always add insole.

The danner vicious are the only boot I have found that are comfortable for me without any risk of blistering But they always leak above the toe. There pronghorns have been a good late season boot but not as comfortable.  Have never spent more then 225 for boots..

Just picked up a pair of Asolo Fugitive GTX boots. Big fan of these. Put 12-13 miles on them this weekend. No hot spots and very comfortable.

I went with the Lathrop & Sons boot system and couldnt be happier! I was hesitant going to a stiff mountaineering type boot but after hiking a few miles with them I am glad I went this route. Very comfy and durable.
