I got a pair of Korkers with the quick change soles. One pair of soles have carbide studs. They are just as warm as my lacrosse ice man boots and very good traction on ice.

I normally wear Mickey mouse boots, very heavy buy very warm. Just got pair of klim boots going to try them out. They are Lots lighter than the mickeys  just not sure how warm they will keep my feet.

I need to try on a pair of the Muck boots, I have a hard time believing a rubber boot is going to keep you warm. I have a pair of Sorel's that are pretty old and my feet are getting cold when on the ice for extended periods.

Muck Artic Sport...if you like to wear thick socks and liners I suggest 1 size up ..all about the wiggle room .

Not to belabor a point, but you can't beat Muck boots for comfort. I've been wearing them for about 8 years now. I literally wear them every day for work during the winter, from October through April.  I've walked miles in them.
If you don't think Mucks are comfortable, you've got messed up feet!!!

To me the muck boots soles are to stiff and don't bend when I walk tried them a few years ago for hunting maybe would be alright for fishing. I am old school I will stick with my org. lacrosse 800 gram burley also mickey mouse boots for extreme cold sits and fishing. There is a place Bradley's military that has the black and white mickey mouse boots the are located on rt 11 phone # is 315-629-4736 or 1-800-503-4954 they are usually pretty reasonable.

   I picked up a pair of  Baffin Titans to replace my worn out Sorels.... wow are they warm ( -175) and comfortable... they have a waffle footbed that wicks away any moisture,  a little heavier than the old sorels ...... but at $100  , a great choice ...... gotta get one size larger due to thick insulation that forms to your feet

I have a pair of muck arctic pro for 2 years just worn for ice fishing and a couple times very cold days of hunting and they are splitting on the side of the foot already. My hunting buddy has same boot but in camo for hunting and his are doing the same. For the price I thought they would last a lot longer. Just bought my wife baffin impacts and she is always cold but this weekend said her feet never got cold sun up to sun down.

Muck Arctic work for me. They do have stiff soles as mentioned above and can be very tricky on glare ice without spikes on.

Don't underestimate the importance of a good pair of Merino Wool socks. I bought a pair of firstlite socks and they work extremely well at wicking away moisture.
