    Default Winter Riding – warmest boots around

    Found these boots and are they ever warm.

    - called - muk-boots or muk luk
    cold-weather boot
    – can be worn in extreme temps
    - breathes (allows air exchange)
    - very comfortable
    - comes in a few colors (brown, black etc)

    Glad you posted this. Today is -10 with the wind chill factor. Reminds me I need a new pair. I prefer these ones though-they are moosehide

    They also fit nicely into my snowshoes when the road to the barn isn't plowed and I have to park the car and walk.

    Has anyone tried riding in these?

    They would look cute with a brown helmet

    I have several pairs - great for mucking out the barn and heading out in the snow to get my horse. Had to change my stirrups for riding but worth it.

    Mukluks for the barn, no question but I prefer these for around the house.

    You lie. They don't ship to Canada and I know you wouldn't drive over the border and smuggle them back. Canadian Moose Lovers don't do things like that!

    These DO look warm. Plus, the fur around the top would help keep the snow out. I was going to order some Ariat's...but I've changed my mind!
    I'm ordering now!!

    I'm pretty annoyed with the NMarcus mukluks. I think they are using some shoddy type of fur. Today I had poo balls hanging from the fur near the heels. Tres Miserable!
