I have pretty good circulation and use Muck boots during hunting and ice fishing season here in Vermont. I use woody max boots for hunting and arctic pros for ice fishing and never get cold feet.

This one. This is one of the key points. So if you have any problems with circulation, then try to fix this. If you're ok with that, then I recommend you to check info at sources like GearHunt, The Outdoor Land, Under The Open Sky etc.

I fall in the latter category of bad circulation; have for years. I use the Rangers when I'm in the East on flat mushy ground and waterproof Loggers when hitting the hills and valleys in the far West and back-country snowmobiling..

YMMV

First thing is a wind break of some sort. My feet rarely get cold, when it is way cold out I have two wool Army blankest sewn together in an *L* easy in easy out. My Meindl boots are good to around -15.

I've found if I keep my kidneys,neck and head warm the extremities usually take care of themselves.

I can recommend German Army Tankers coverall liners (surplus). A layer of long johns, then the Tanker liners then the insulated coveralls, good to zero. Below zero I add synthetic sweat pants and a wool sweater. The thing about the coveralls and liner is you can open the zipper to vent them. Socks are always double wool. The liners pass moisture but trap air, they rally work out well for me and they are cheap.

My feet get cold when stand hunting. Last year I used warmers. I used to think they were band aid for the wrong boot.

I have wanted to try bunny boots. I did go back to iceman last year, after hunting. But still got cold plowing snow with light socks.

I realize some guys like to brag about going barefoot in ice cubes. But not me.

Thumbs up Keep them toes warm

I prefer to wear one pair of cotton socks and another pair of wool (or alpaca) socks over them. A lot of people say that cotton makes your feet sweat, but my feet sweat regardless and this has been my go-to for over a decade. Make sure they are not too tight or you risk cutting off circulation and your feet will get cold quick.

I use the ThermaCELL rechargeable foot warmers. They have a remote you keep in your pocket, when I'm walking I click the no heat setting so my feet don't sweat.
