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.

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.

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

    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....

    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors.
