What is a good pair of winter boots for the wife?

19 posts in this topic

My wife likes doing stuff outside in the winter but just can't seem to find the right pair of boots that keep her feet warm for long periods of time.

I have some nice 1600 grams Irish Setters from Cabelas but they are a little heavy. Any info would help.

Thanks

the saskatchewan pac boot from cabelas in an awesome boot...best boot i've ever personally worn...its pretty light for being such a big boot...check em out once on the cabelas site...i've used them hunting so far and the coldest my feet have been is lukewarm lol.

we've done some 6-8 hour sits and my buddies are always sayin how their feet are so cold...my feet haven't even got cool yet...maybe if i was gonna be in -50 on stand for half a day i could put toe warmers in my liners...you can slide in warmers right in the pac boots liner.

Have her try either the ladies or boys version of the Rocky Blizzard Stalkers. My girlfriend will spend all day/night on the ice without complaining.

If she is active when she is outside she may be able to get by with some muck boots. They make many different styles and they are very light and comfortable. My girlfriend has the woody max and so far so good but havent tried them in real cold yet.

Since you said wife not girlfriend I would recomend the cheapest Wal-Mart boot available. I guy's got to have some down time without her wanting to go.

I got my wife a pair of Sorrel Northern Lite™ Tall last year and I have not heard anything about cold feet since.

If $170 is in the budget, and you just wish to do this once, I also agree the Cabela's Tran's Alaskan III boot / or there camo version the Saskatchewan Boot.

Warmest and lightest -130 boot I have ever owed, a very comfortable active or non active use boot.

keep her warm and happy with Ice Kings. If they don't do it nothing will, well atleast the warm part.

I might need to give these a walk next time I'm in Cabelas as I'm looking for a new pair of good boots.

They kind of look like Moon Boots though. Does it feel like you are walking around a Chalet in your Ski Boots?

How much do you love her??? If you love her a lot LaCrosse Ice King, but if you gotta deal with her more than you want anything under $40...

Depends on what she wants to do... look into Steger Mukluks. Look great, and are super lightweight and warm. Can't beat them in the right conditions. I don't wear em icefishing or when its hovering around the freezing point because they can get wet, but if water is not an issue that is what I would go with

they kinda do your first trip out...mine were a little stiff but after i wore them a time or two they loosened right up...best boots i've ever worn...just wore them out muzzleloading again this morning in the cold wind and my feet still haven't got even the slightest bit of cold...still luke warm feet after 4 hours on stand...i think it will have to be something real serious before my feet even start to get a little cold.

forgot to mention these bad boys are scentlok too!

If you get her a nice pair of Mukluks and some good socks, like was previously mentioned, she'll be keeping you warm too. winkwink

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
