Mickys are by far the warmest but extremely heavy. I usually wear my muck boots when I am chasing tip downs and mickeys when watching flags
its a footrace to the hole

Got the Baffins last year at half price.  They are really nice.  Wait until they have sales.
Da Fishmon!

Muck arctic pros with katoohlas very warm and much easier to walk in than pack boots.
If fishing is a sport are we considered athletes?

I have the Arctic Pro's and like them for how I fish.  I fish from a Hub or a Shanty so I do not need extreme low temp boots.  When it gets down to single digits my feet start getting cold even with 2 pair of merino wool socks (1thin and 1thick) so I through in a pair of toe warmers.  I have fished in -10/-15 deg. weather with them and was OK with the toe warmers.  I like them for active fishing, in and out of a heated shelter.  If I was doing a lot of sitting I would go with something heavier.


This post is a great one on boots that I believe went on for 4 years and 12 pages.  Some of the info is dated but most is not.

I have used "Mickeys" in the past and found them to be very heavy but warm and dry. I have been using the Muck Arctic Pros for the last 2 years and the only way my feet have gotten wet is because of sweat. They work great.

I can't tolerate walking around in Mucks all day. I only break them out when I know I'm going to have to fish in standing water.
I prefer a set of studded Neos worn over my sneakers. My brother wears a pair of slippers inside his.
Stop torturing yourselves and look up Neos Overshoes.
The angle of the dangle is directly proportionate to the heat of the beat.

I've been wearing the brown 15" Viking insulated boots for years. Durable slip-ons and cold feet are a non issue.

I bought a pair of LL Bean mid height Snow Sneakers. I use them all season hunting and I've been wearing them on the ice all season. I absolutely love them. Spent all day on the ice Saturday (low of 0, high of 15) and my feet never got cold. They're low height and very comfortable. I can kick slush around all day and my feet stay nice and dry.

Used to be a fan of mucks not so much any more. Seems the price keeps going up and the Chinese keep making them cheaper! :-\

Muck Arctic pros, just scored a set on ebay for $115 shipped. Amazingly warm and comfortable, no laces and material to ice up.

Baffin apex pricey but u cant put a price on warm dry feet
I have a pair of baffins, warm and light.I also have Rocky bear claws, which are a good all around boot.
Some good merino wool socks, and air activated toe warmers can go a long way too.

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.
I thought the same.  The Arctic Pro's made me a believer.
