The Insulated Cold Weather Rubber Boot for Cold-Wet Use: The boots were originally designed to protect US soldiers feet from cold injury and frostbite in extreme cold weather areas. But over the years, civilians started wearing the boots for work and recreation. The ski shelf allows for attaching to ski and snowshoe bindings. Felt lining is sandwiched between layers of rubber, trapping warmth and ensuring protection against cold, wet temperatures. Tongue is completely attached to boot under laces. The absense of a side air valve make these boots waterproof and suitable for wet, cold climates (bunny boots and type I, class I mickey mouse boots are for cold, dry climates).
Fit: Whole sizes only. These should have a “soft” fit: fit snug but not tight. These tend to run large, but manufacturer suggests starting with the size normally worn in a leather boot.
Cleaning & Repair Instructions: Proper cleaning and care will help to cosmetically refurbish and maintain boots for years to come. For general cleaning: sprinkle lightly with a general purpose scouring powder. Wash inside of boots once a month with soapy water. Wet a soap impregnated steel wool pad and rub lightly. Rinse with water. Repair all inside and outside punctures with ordinary rubber patching.
