Admiral needs warm sailing boots

Hello,

The Admiral needs something that will keep her feet dry and WARM. The top of the line solution seems to be, Dubarry's Ultima @$399. Is there something out there as good at half the price?

Her Wellies just don't cut it.

thx!

My wife loves her Sorels even though they are a little on the heavy side. They are not marine specific but that just keeps the price down.

Re: Admiral needs warm sailing boots

I had posted that I have a pair of Helly Wellys and that I find them comfortable in cold weather with a pair of Wool Socks under them, but I see the Admiral does not agree.

I passed down my Dubarrys to my wife. She gets cold feet fast and has never complained once she tried them.

Maybe this is not a time to cut corners/expenses. The Dubarrys are a very nice cold weather boot. Look for sales or wait for the boat show.

My feet were always cold and wet. That is until I discovered Dubarrys. Will never go back. Worth every penny.

p.s. My wife keeps trying to steal mine. Guess I'm going to have to get her some too.

Re: Admiral needs warm sailing boots

I agree with Trielly, I used to do alot of winter backpacking and camping and nothing kept my feet as warm as my Sorels. I still have the same pair I purchased in the 70's and 2 sets of liners. They don't offer alot of support and they are a bit heavy, but I wouldn't be without a pair. If you get a pair with the removable liner, you can wear the liners in the cabin. They are dense wool, I've had mine for 40 years...so..I figure it cost me less than $1.00 a year to have warm feet...

Duberrys for me too and my wife too

However for an environment where you wont get them soaked wet like a long time in the cockpit or below we each have a pair of nice UGGs. They are unbeleiveable warm, soft and have good support. We each have matching UGG slippers also...

Re: Admiral needs warm sailing boots

Based on threads on SA I plan to get a pair of mukluks, about half the cost.
