You should add your location to your profile ...helps with weather in your area ..for recommendations on clothing and boots...also could be a deal near by you.

As far as choice ...do a Search of the make/model your interested tons of past posts and reviews . What are you wearing ...you looking to upgrade/down grade ?

Goggle Baffin Snow Monster.  They're pricey ($250).  But a good boot will cost you.

Sorels are good for me  They have different models for different temps  and price range    My only complaint is they aren't water proof for as long I would expect considering the price

Being a cheapskate, I buy the Sports Afield or Field and Stream boots ( can't remember what they are called ) when they are $ 60 at Dick's. Important to wear good thick wool socks with these, but the combination has always kept me comfortable.

I also have a couple pair of muck boots with just one little issue.  I love the height which allows you to slug thru the puddles but if you hunt from a ladder stand then you might catch the top of the boot on the bottom of your seat.  This could possibly cause one to loose his balance if not being really careful.  Any one else experience this problem  ?  I bought some shorter elcheapoe's at runnings which have solved the problem for now but I don't believe they'll be warm enough later on.

Iím not positive but I think the ones I got last year were thorogood not sure model. Bulky but always warm. Got those after the second pair of arctic pros started to leak. Also didnít like how the mucks breath for ice.
My number one tip for ice fishing boots is pick the right sock. I started wearing regular everyday crew socks and have found the best luck.
The more insulation the less breathable period.

I love my Kamick IceBreakers.. Never been cold over 30 years with the two pairs I have had and the price is very reasonable.

Google the Baffin website and find a boot model that fits your style of fishing and needs.  I move around a  lot  so my feet don't tend to get cold.  These boots are really good and waterproof.

Love my pair of Irish Setter mud boots. They are rubber and knee high so you can go through as much slush as you want and your feet wonít get wet. Theyíre also so warm a lot of times I just wear regular socks cause otherwise my feet will sweat.
