I just buy insulated rubber boots from Princess Auto. Spent $49 on them...on my second season. My feet are have never been cold or wet, even when I was out last Saturday in wind chill of -35.

+1 for Nats. They are incredibly warm, light weight, and inexpensive!

I use the Baffin Ice Bears my self.

Here is a link,

https://workauthority.ca/collections/mens-f...e-bear-5157-672

They are a great boot, not too heavy to walk in. You will never get wet feet because they are rubber. They are rated for -50C but who goes out at that temp anyways? I put a pair of decent insoles in mine for walking and they feel great. They are not the cheapest boot out there but you will never have to buy another pair and you will always have dry feet. I just wear a decent pair of wool socks with mine and almost never get cold feet unless I am sitting around doing nothing for too long but that will happen with any boot you have. It's pretty simple solution, if you get cold then get up and get the blood flowing and you will be warm again.

Hope this helps, there are endless options out there for boots, this is just what I use and it works for me.

+1. ICE BEARS ALL THE WAY!!! THE BEST!

Thanks for the replies, folks. Went to Cabelas and got myself Titans, which are on "sale" now.

Thanks again, guys. Tried them today. Everything is perfect. I was afraid they're too heavy, but they're just fine. Warm and comfy.

My top-of-the-line and quite expensive Baffin boots did a number on me. And I noticed it heading out.  Still went fishing, spent several hours with wet feet and got skunked.  But that's beside the point. The point is: what to buy to replace the boots? I was always recommending Baffin when asked, but now I kind of lost confidence in the company. Any alternatives?

I picked up a pair of these Kamik Supreme Winter boots from Canadian Tire this weekend, and i'm looking forward to taking them out this weekend. They are comfort rated to -74C or -100F, and they look extremely well made, at a pretty reasonable price. I'm thinking these are going to be exactly what i need for this colder than usual ice fishing season!

I just threw a pair that looked like those Kamiks in the garbage. The uppers were not waterproof and the cloth ripped at the seam. Even before the rip it was chafed thru in at least 1 spot.

Mine were not a lot less than the Titans I have now. Waaay superior for ice fishing, esp in the slush.

My titans with screws in the bottom were amazing on the bare ice yesterday. Didn't even realize they were helping so much until i saw a guy wipe out trying to drill a hole!
