For trail riding purposes I'm wondering what everyone is wearing and how much did you pay for them? Likes and dislikes?
I found a great pair of boots(trail riding w/ some support) that are warm and dry but won't break the bank. Cabela's in-house brand called the "Snow Squall". These boots kept my feet warm,dry and do not weigh a ton. I liked them so much that i bought the wife a pair and she swears by them! Beware, do not wear more than one pair of socks with these or your feet with sweat! And BTW, there are only $90(us)!!!! Also, these boots run true to size so no-guess work on sizing.

I was very interested in the black hawk's by altimate but i felt i was paying for the advertising instead of the boots. I considered the cruiser boots by hmk but, I hated the colors! I finally decided to buy a boot that was all about the look and how it was advertised. The "Snow Squall" has a built-in liner not some bulky thing that comes out when your foot does and is rated to -135 degrees with it's 1200 grams of insulation! If you don't need the latest fashion in riding boots i believe the snow squall is the best bang for your buck.

Some individuals dream of a life filled with horsepower and torque, I chose to live it.....

ATV: Honda Foreman

FXR Octanes

These things are great, lightweight, awesome support, warm.

I used to end up with a sore back now and then, because of the lack of support from other snowmobile boots.

With these FXR's I have no issues whatsoever. After 346 miles on St Patties day I was good to go the next day.

Mine came through Royal Distributing and list for $199.

I highly recommended these boots for anyone that rides standing up, as they are like little shocj absorbers for your feet.

i wear trukke thundersnow II boots and they are awesome. I always wonder why that if gore-tex is such a great thing for jackets and bibs, how come nobody makes gore-tex snowmobile boots?

I don't wear a true "snowmobile boot", but instead have opted for a pair of 1000 gram thinsulate Rocky boots. They are much smaller than a typical pack boot which makes it easier for me to manuver around the sled. I've also worn them out in -30 F and haven't had a problem.

These do have Gore-Tex. Paid about $150.

Snow Tracker Pacs. Rated to -93C or -135F. 1600g of Thinsulate, waterproof, special ice gripping sole. They rock. Sound very similar to the Cabellas.

HJC. A little bulky, but I only wear normal socks and I never get cold. Cheap, and mor flexible than snowcross boots. Castle makes the same exact ones, and I think they are around $70.
