Go to your local Army & Navy Surplus and pick up some Mickey Mouse boots.They are army issue cold weather gear.
You can get them online from Sportsmans guide.Somebody told they aren't the originals, but I know people that have them and they work for them.

Don't let the rating on the boots fool you.The black are rated at -20 and whites are rated at -70.These things keep your feet toasty.Check out what alot of people in Alaska and ice fisherman wear.You'll find it's these boots.

They are called Mickey Mouse Boots!

I personally own a pair of Sorels. They work fine, but remember all of these boots are made to keep your feet warm while walking. Even if its rated to -50 below zero, if you are sitting still, your feet will eventually get cold.

Some good recommendations on boots, but I would add...get yourself a pair of 'boot blankets' to wear over your boots. They work. Also, the disposable chemical hand/toe warmers are a must in my boots on cold days.
