The best winter boot for ALOT less money.

Here is a winter boot idea I came up with a few years ago.

1.   Start with 1 pair of heavy ALL wool knee length socks,
2.   Buy 1 set of ALL wool ½ inch thick boot liners that fit over your foot plus socks.
3.   Buy 1 set of ALL wool boot insoles, thicker the better.
4.   Sew the insoles to the boot liners, attach at toe end only.
5.   Take these along when you buy your rubber overshoes.
6.   Get Tingly overshoes that will fit comfortably over the socks & liners. (They are  lightweight and 100% waterproof).
7.   Sew tabs on the top back of the liners to alleviate pulling on the boots.

They are VERY warm.
They weight about a third of other winter boots.
They are 100% waterproof.
The boot can be opened up to accept your pant cuffs.
The liners can be easily be pulled out in the evening and dried near a campfire.  Hang them so the insoles hang facing the heat. Putting them back in is also easy.
The total cost is about $30 bucks as I write this.

With this setup you can stay out in the brush for a month or more with dry healthy feet.
