    I just used to cut out some inner soles from that rubber 'waffly' stuff sold as carpet underlay.
    Hunted all seasons with them. Never had cold feet. Thought the Ashley boots were the greatest!
    Thick socks are good too (as mentioned), but do consider the use of an inner sole as well.

    I wear them year round, even when Tahr hunting etc...they are a bit hot in summer & a little cold in winter, but I still love them. I can have whatever boots I want at no cost to me and I still choose Ashleys.

    Two pairs of socks in the snow should do the trick.

    Get an old pair of ya jandals, grind them down thinner, trim to fit inside and boom! Super warm, custom molded insoles. Picked this up from an old post in the 'other' forum, works a treat.
