    A bit pricey for a pair of socks, but if they work.......... I've spent my whole hunting life with freezing toes. I've bought numerous well insulated shoes/boots ranging from $100 to $200 with very little in the way of positive results. Tried many different socks and combinations of women's knee-highs. Some worked better than others, but never well enough to make me comfortable while on stand in cold weather. Just one more reason that made me give up hunting. Maybe these would just be the ticket to success for some.


    For those who are still in the hunting mode they just might be worth the price. Afterall, how many have spent hundreds of dollars on something less important? Some customer reviews would be nice.

    There are also HotMocs and other boot covers out there that claim to be really nice products at a relatively decent price.

    I have had a little bit of luck layering and using the heat-packs in my boots that are 1200gram rated. I have toyed with getting another pair of boots that are a little higher up the calf than the Cabela's I have for more waterproof options in creek crossings. Been looking into some Mucks.

    Lets see; $129.99 + 19.00 = $149.98 + shipping divided by 500 = .29 for each use. Pretty cheap for warm feet when you look at it this way, Of course that is without the shipping cost figured in, but how much could shipping be? LOL

    not sure if i would want my feet at 100F or even 111F.think i might have a pool of sweat in my boots.good idea.it does get cold on then winter days,but with only9.5 hours of daylight i will tough it out.

    our shoes are so much better today than when i was a kid. the shoes & boots didn't have any kind of a lining just leather . my feet stayed cold all the time. i have a pair insulated hunting boots now it has to get really cold before i can wear them. Barry you could have went hunting bare foot today 70 degrees.

    I started using unscented deodorant on my feet with one pair of sock liners and a pair of wool socks.The deo stops your feet from sweating so they don't get wet and then cold.Has worked so far for me this year.I also have the old boot blankets and they work well just bulky.I can't do the thermocell too pricey for me.
