Late season boots
« on: December 12, 2019, 01:16:05 PM »
What are your favorite late season hunting boots? Nothing to bulky. Something that you can walk lots of miles up and down hills and be comfortable and dry.
Maybe some good Sox to.

Tagging along.  I have been wearing neoprene "Muck" boots.  Warm, comfortable, and dry....except they make my feet sweat like no other and am looking for an alternative

400 gram until it gets in the single digits with snow, from there I like 1,000 gram thinsulate.  I wear Smart Wool hunting socks with both boots.  I was in 24 below this year and never was cold.  Many times I will put one of those toe warmers inside, I stick them on the "roof" of the boot, not on the sole, it really helps, especially with kids.

This year I wore my 400 gram crispi boots with smart wool socks. Perfect for when I was hiking and if I was going to be sitting longer than 20-30 minutes, I put on my arctic shield boot covers. Wouldn't say my feet were toasty but never really got cold.

I can say Irish setter elk trackers 200gram with the thin moisture wicking sock and some big wool socks do great while hiking and moving about but forget trying to stop and glass or call for half an hour. Feet got cold and it took a hot shower at home to warm back up. I also have Sorrel conquests and those do good but suck for hiking. Got rid of my Muck -40 boots. Those were no good in the 0 and below range and I have no idea why when everyone says they’re so great. Also no good for hiking.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

Initially I wasn't sure how I was going to like them since they are stiffer than any boot I had owned. I tried a few things and after reading up on different lacing styles and also putting in superfeet, I really like them

I've always wanted the Schnee Hunter 2.  Does anybody have these that could confirm their quality?

Did you have to order your Crispi boots online? Or is there someone in Washington that has them in stock?

I got mine on sale online. Read tons of reviews about how people felt about the sizing and mine were true to size.

I have a pair and love them. Comfortable warm and can hike in them. Durability is real good so far.

:yeah:
Can only wear them when the snow falls. Keep my feet toasty.
