Warmest Insoles you've tried
« on: Jan 09, 2017, 01:16 PM »
I'm trying to find insoles to add to my boots, while I save up for a pair of nice pac boots I have my eye on - I'm not messing with rechargeable insoles, but any advice on which additional insoles are the warmest? Wool? Sheer?

I liked wool, thick as would fit with adequate room remaining for my foot.
Not fish? Not an option!

The most important insulation in your boots is what's under your feet, not what's in the uppers. Closed cell foam is a good and inexpensive insulation. Cutting your own insoles from an inexpensive yoga mat is the cheapest way I know. One mat will make many years of insoles. If you're on your feet all day the foam will compress in about a month. Making insoles this way is so inexpensive you won't care how frequently you need to cut new ones.

alpaca wool insoles - I have a 1/2 size foot - they don't make boots like that - the alpaca wool insoles take up the space and insulate

I trust these folks for their products:

Search around - the Survival sock are hard to beat for every day wear.  I do want some dress socks but I do have 2 pairs that will last me a life time.

The Blizzard type - I have 2 pair and I do not have to buy any other sock for hunting or fishing - keep them dry, rotate them and done.
Something clever should have been typed here back in 2014...

Felt always did well for me. Now I have Baffins and dont need an insulated insole.

Just saw some battery powered ones the other day if your feel get real cold.
