I love my icekings, I always bought the cheaper boots and froze my feet, 10 years ago I decided to go all out and spend some money and bought the Lacross Icekings (still wear them today), and haven't a had cold feet since. They aren't the most waterproof boots, but then again when I have them on there isn't much water around. I think Lacross is the way to go for boots.

Another vote for LaCrosse Ice Kings. Hunting, Icefishing or shoveling the driveway, always dependable, always warm, always dry...exactly what I am looking for. I bought mine from Dunhams in the spring of the year for about $75. I have had them for about 3 years and they have never disappointed.

Take care,

Them good ole mickey mouse boots that you can get at most likely any military surplus store. They are by FAR the best boots I have had yet. And if your feet get cold (barely ever happens) just dump some hot water in the boot and dump it out and dry it with a towel and there ya go, a warm boot again. Thats what I like the most about them.

They are 100% water proof. They cost around $100 and they accept trade-in of a old pair. I have had these for about 5 years now.

I use them mainly for snowmobiling and ice fishing. While ice fishing I have had my whole boot frozen on the outside with ice and on the inside my feet are sweating. Now that is some darn good insulation!

You can use them for other things too, like hunting or 4-wheeling. If you wanted to you could wear these boot all year around! In the summer your feet don't get overly hot either. But I normally only use these boots mainly for walking in mud in the summer b/c I don't really like wearing boots in the summer anyways.

Overall, these boots are the way to go!

Ice Kings for me. Have a pair I got over 8 years ago and they still work great. I bought a new pair at G.M. last year for $45 I think . Little bulky but your feets wont get cold. I melt Snoe Seal on them once a year and the snow just falls off. Dry the liners every day and you will have no worrys.
A friend bought the Rocky Ice Fishing Packs with the fold down cleats and he likes them too.

I'll stand behind my Ice Kings (Lacross). Your feet will not get cold in these boots.

They are pretty bulky, but very light for thier size so one can still maneuver comfortably. The only downfall I have found to them is its nearly impossible to drive some vehicles with them (I have size 13 feet).

I have friends that use military pack boots .. but I can remember too many occasions where thier feet got wet and cold, which ended the fishing trip each time.

I have to second Dave's opinion on the Ice Kings being VERY large. I have a pair, also 13's and I really like them, but I haven't found creepers or chains that fit on them. In Escanaba we don't usually have snow on the ice until late January, so the Kings stay on the shelf until then. Last year I put about 2 dozen sheet metal screws into the bottom of my packs and it worked like a charm for the glare ice!

I found rubber pull over cleats at Wal-Mart for my size 15 Ice Kings. Like 6 bucks.

Size 15 must be a pain to look for sometimes. I got size 13 in my army reserve boots and they are huge. I cant imagine what a 15 looks like.

Instead of getting some cleats. Because the good kinds in my size are so scarce. I just screwed some sheet metal screws into my boots and that was the best traction on glare ice I could of had!

Ya I dont fall into too many holes! They get heavy. I could have got into a 14 but the extra room keeps air moving and warmth in. Tire chains, good idea! He He!

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
