    I wear these when out sea fishing on the rocks, superb for grip and keeping you warm and dry

    If you get ones with steel toecaps they are VAT free.
    I've got insoles and boot socks.
    I think it's being waterproof that makes the feet sweaty and cold!

    Any reason why you don't wear normal hiking type boots with thick socks ?

    PS I'd steer clear of steel toecaps personally, as the metal and icy mornings are not good together.

    I don't think all safety boots have steel toecaps. Some kind of carbon fibre is used methinks.

    I wore steel toe cap boots for most of my working life, never felt they made my toes feel cold, I stand in freezing water when fishing in mine and only wear ordinary socks. I think it's the soles that make the difference, muck boots work on the principle of thicker insulated soles keep your feet warm, the tops are of secondary importance.

    Another one who wears safety boots....again never a problem with the cold from the toe cap. As Burnie says, it's the soles that make the difference
