Old boots died ... need new ones

Recommended Posts

My Rocky Snow Stalker boots came apart at the seam last week. They were great boots since I bought them in 2000, but are no longer available. Went looking for a suitable replacement but find nobody has much in stock here. Does anybody have any recommendations for a really good ice fishing/snowmobiling boot? Not looking for a good value as much as comfort/warmth. I might need to order on-line, so let me know how yours fit (true-to-size, small, etc). Thanks ...

I have a pair of Danner boots that i got in probably 2002. Great boots! Waterproof, Thinsulate lined. My feet are rarely cold. I use them for everything. Ice fishing, snowmobiling, shoveling the driveway, even walking around at outdoor winter carnivals. They fit me great, true to size. I have a small cut on the toe from when I set an auger blade on it. Never had any water come through it though.

Hope this helps.

Just received my new pair of boots yesterday...Baffin Apex. They're probably a little bigger boot than your Snow Stalkers...more like a pac boot size. Have yet to be out in them, but they seem like they're going to do the trick. Using them for the same reasons as you.

Rated to -148F, but who the h**l would be out in that! grin Lots of insulation and look to be VERY well made. $167 shipped to my door. Wear size 11 shoe, so i went with size 12 boot.

I have Baffin Impacts and wouldn't hesitate to get another pair if these ever give out. They are incredibly warm and comfortable. It feels like you are walking on a pillow! For being a Pac boot, they are very light, but still a little bulky. Gander Mountain carries these.

Sweet looking boot. I've been looking at Baffin online. Thanks for the feedback.

If you don't plan on standing in water, I recommend Stieger Mukluks. You will NEVER find a warmer, more comfortable boot anywhere. The only downside is you can’t be in standing water but they are very water resistant once treated. You can wear them outside in the harshest conditions and then sit around the camp in them like they are slippers. Your feet don't get cold or hot.

Muck Boots are great.

Ditto. I never realized that the boots could make so much difference! I always thought it was just the socks. I have worn mine deer hunting, ice fishing, wood cutting, maple syrupping, and sliding in the snow. Comfortable and warm!

I just picked up a pair of these... Cabela's 11" 1,200-gram Outfitter Series™ Pro Hunting Boots. I wear a 10 1/2 shoe and chose an 11 1/2 boot. I haven't worn them outside yet but they sure felt nice in the store. They aren't bulky like a pack boot and are easy to get on and off plus they are on sale for 115.49 on line...regular price is 209.99.

I've got a pair of baffin impacts from a few years ago. Sure they are moon boots, but I've got the warmest feet on the ice.

When they blow out on me, i'm going with a muck boot though. less bulky and I've heard great things.

I love my Kamik Boots. Most if not all are made in Canada, and are very high quality. Those Canadians know about the cold, Eh? I have two types now, the Hunter's (I think they were called waterfowlers at FF) and GreenBay4's. I have had the GreenBay4's for 5 years now and they are a great snow boot. You put good wool socks inside of those, and forget about cold feet, it wont happen. They are great for fishing because the whole bottom is rubber, and you dont get wet. The Hunter's are very high quality rubber boots if thats what you like, I like the ankle flexability of the GreenBay4's because its made of cloth. I use the Hunters for hunting, where I want ankle support, and I walk through more than 3" of water.

I just returned a pair of Irish Setter Snow Claw 2000 gram back to Cabela's because they didn't keep my feet any warmer than my 1100 gram 7 yr old cabelas brand. Picked up a pair of Cabela's Predator Extreme, only wore them to shovel snow so far, but they are a serious boot.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
