I am looking for some real cold weather riding boots. I looked at the Black Sheep web site as the boots looked warm. All they kept saying is that yes they look warm, but do not worry, they do not get warm. I want them to get warm. Any suggestions?
I saw a review of their boots about 4 months ago, I think in MCN. I have no personal experience with them. I like Rocky Eliminator boots. They are insulated and waterproof. I also have found that a brand of socks called Smart Wool (especially 2 pairs) will make uninsulated boots warm. Smartwool socks are really expensive but they are really warm.
I don't know how helpful this is but I was out today for about 45 minutes (charging the battery) at 18 degrees. My feet stayed toasty in Cruiserworks boots with regular socks. For longer trips at low temps, I put on long wool socks. My feet never get cold I also find speeds above 60 mph are warmer than low speeds, I guess because of the shape of the airflow. I do turn up the back of my leather jacket collar so I can look like James Dean and keep my neck warm. 8)
I just remembered. Cabela's used to sell electric, battery operated socks for hunting. You could probably try those with whatever boots you have now.
I where my eliminators when I know its going to be cool. Also when in a lot of rain. During good weather I wear non-insulated boots. I have an old pair of Corbin boots I bought in 1990. I've had them re-soled and I love them. The eliminators would be too warm above 60 degrees.
