    Sub Zero Footwear

    I'm interested to hear what some of the experienced riders of the sub zero, multi day events are wearing to keep their feet warm (ie;MikeSee).
    I've spent a couple hundred dollars trying to solve my cold feet issues to no avail. My rides are only 2-3 hours in length in sub zero temperatures and while the rest of my body is cozy warm, my feet continue to be cold. From what I can gather from various blogs, these riders have dumped the traditional bicycle shoes and even the winter offerings from Companies such as Lake and Pearl Izumi in favor of hiking boots and in some cases neoprene warmers on top.
    It would be nice to get very specific about which Companies boots and which models are used with success. Also, what about socks and foot layering in general. Although I have not had success with chemical warmers, maybe someone has.....and I'd like to hear about it.
    What about battery heated socks......
    The only issue I have with Winter biking in Canada is the inability to keep my feet warm.

    I also used to have an issue with cold feet, but found a boot which eliminated that problem, even in subzero weather. My "trail" is my four season commute to work, which means I'm outside for a half an hour at a time. I figure if it does the job over a half hour, it will probably hold up for longer periods as well.

    The boot is here: http://www.clarksusa.com/eng/product/walcott/71594

    For socks, try this: http://www.rei.com/webservices/rei/D...:referralID=NA

    Warning: This boot is not that waterproof. It's super in cold weather, but bicycling in the rain will result in soggy socks.
