    skeetex essex boots!

    Ahdoo matey !
    try the skeetex essex boots,,they,re absolutey unbeleivable,,
    when i first used em i went back to the shop to look for a different pair,,,
    the guy asked me why,,,?
    i told him i put 1 normal pair of socks with thermal socks over the top and after 2 hours my feet where freezing,,,
    he laughed his head off and said,,
    no mate,,just wear a pair of normal socks like you would in summer,,,the more layers you wear with them,,the poorer they perform,,,,,theyre actually designed to work better with thinner layers,,,!
    so,,on the next visit i did just that
    the result,,,,,,,,my feet felt like i had em in a pair of warm slippers for the whole match matey,,,honestly,,i was gobsmacked!
    there is no left or right boot either so they're NUMPTY FRIENDLY,,,,,,LOL
    also makes em easy to slip on and off,,,,,,,
    they work to about minus 50 degrees so they should see you right
    they cost,£50 but well worth it,,
    thats a nicker for every degree under freezing matey!
    BARGAIN ME THINKS!

          Kev

          If its socks you are after try the sealskinz range. Absolutely lovely and warm. They cost about £25 a pair but I would not be without them in winter.

          sealskinz.com - The Technology and how they work

          TMTM is correct about layers especially in the thermal boots.

                As a carp angler for ten years that is just getting back into match fishing i know a thing or two about sitting around for days on end getting cold feet and by far the best footwear i have used is Muckboots twinned with Sealskinz socks. Super super toasty and very comfy to walk in. I have had the skeetex essex boots and the Muck boots are warmer and dont need the linings replacing.

                  Ive found that some camo boots with thinsulate lining that i bought recently are the warmest and most comfy boots i ever bought, and at only £29.99, you cant go wrong.
                  I envy not him that eats better meat than I do, nor him that is richer, or that wears better clothes than I do. I envy nobody but him, and him only, that catches more fish than I do

                    skeetex dont need the lining replacing if they're removed from the boots after use matey?
                    And with regaurds to the socks you wear,,,ive heard they're fantastic when used in conjunction with,,,,WHALE BLUBBER lined bib n brace,, A POLAR BEAR SKIN pole jacket,,,,and a WOOLY MAMMOTH FUR flight cap?
