always thought the baffin trappers (their rubber insulated boot) with alpaca socks would be the way to go. before i owned those socks i never thought something could be better than wool.

Alpaca? Going to have to try a pair. The wool socks Ive purchased in the last 20 yrs aren't anything like the ones I used to buy way back

They seem to be durable enough but real soft and not itchy. Have hats too that are very warm too. Just don't do what I did and machine wash one. Turns into a frizz ball on the outside. I've got no vested interest here. Just like the stuff.

Still use mine and still great shape. bought them 1987

I bought my Sorrels around the '88-90 time frame.  They're still in great shape and I still wear them now and then shoveling snow...   but then I stopped hunting in them some time in the mid 90's. I'd bought a pair of Rocky Cornstalkers for bow hunting and warmer gun seasons. But I found out they were warmer than the Sorrels and far more comfortable to walk in, and never went back. 

I was going to buy a pair of Baffin's a couple years ago and at the last minute I decided not to. But for the life of me, I can't remember why. 

Instead I lost my mind, bought a pair of Zambelan's and a pair pair of Hoffman pack boots.  My feet haven't been cold since.  (I will say, the Zamberlans are nice and I don't regret it, but they are far and away the most expensive shoes I've ever owned. I mean, I've had cars I paid less for.)
