I bought a new pair of Frog Togg Amphibians last night. 1200 grams. I know they are not at all what your wanting, but they are by far the warmest boots I have ever put on. I tromped after coyotes all day today in 18 degree 30 MPH wind and my feet were on fire, and they are always cold.

Like I said, its not apples to apples but I thought this was a good place to brag about them.

I read "best cold weather boobs" and had to check it out. Who cares about boots?

I like Sorels. Wore them framing houses in MN for 7 winters, and never got cold feet. They last a long time as well.

Go with a CDN manufacturer. Kamik Helsinki model has great features and with its multi-layer liners, they are rated for -74C/-100F.

If it gets colder than -100F, I would stay indoors. Sorel makes a similar model. Minimum 2 layers of socks. First must be polypropolyene (wicking) and 2nd should be a wool/fleece type. Nice and loose. Boot should be a bit big to keep heat in the best.

I have a pair of Lacrosse Ice King boots, I used them for winter camping. Feet were never cold, the only down side was I could not drive anything in them, too big.

Best boots I've ever owned. I have the same pair I bought when I worked at a ski resort checking tickets in N. MI. That was 24 years ago. Sno seal keeps them supple and waterproof.
