Buy some military Bunny Boots. I have had trouble with cold feet for many years, until I obtained a pair of "Bunny Boots". Been hunting in 10 degree weather or colder for the past two weeks. Feet have been comfortable throughout 3 hour sits.

Add a pair of Chuck Deshler's (Two Tracks Bow Co), felted wool boot liners, for extra warmth and comfort.

I wear Muck boots with a heavy pair of socks. The walk in gets my feet warmed up pretty good. The past few nights it's been in the single digits by the time I left and my feet haven't been cold.

everyone has what works for them but if you want warm feet which on a stand for me I found that the Baffin's which are rated to -140 are perfect with regular crew socks even thinner liner socks because they are so warm. they are made in Canada I think originally for ice fisherman who stand on ice all day.

they feel like pillows on your feet and might not work right for serious hiking but for standing still long hours your toes will be toasty warm I've worn them all this week and currently here in Mass its -15 wind chill and my feet felt like they were in warm heater socks with not even a hint of a chill and i was only wearing regular tube socks,, I originally bought these for standing in deep snow in single to sub zero temps.

other wise most decent winter boots will work but buy a size to a 1 1/2 sizes bigger so you can wear extra thick wool or alpaca socks,, if toes are cold sometimes theres not enough insulating air space in front of them.

I have diabetes as well, and cold is tough. I bought some pac boots from Cabela's some years ago that are rated to -85 degress. I also stole a pair from my son rated to -40. Non diabetics will consider this overkill, but it is not. With the -40 boots, I lost feeling in my feet at about 25 degrees. I do not walk, but, rather, I sit on a stand all morning. I am just not sure a diabetic is ever going to be totally comfortable in cold weather. I have accepted this as a fact of like and seldom hunt in the colder weather, which is odd, because when I was younger, I like to hunt on mornings so cold that most folks didn't want to be out..

I hunted this past weekend in TN and it was pretty cold for us.. temps in single digits with a wind chill on top.. my Sitka gear kept me totally comfortable but my feet were killing me. After all I invested in Sitka to stay warm my foot solution was pretty cheap.

I put a hand warmer - bigger size - on the toe of my boot when I got to my stand. Then I wrapped it in a piece of flannel cloth to hold it in place and trap warmth and used a rubber band to secure it.
Worked just fine.. if only the deer had cooperated!

I use to not get cold until I became a diabetic four years ago.. I like to climb the tree before daylight and set til dark..But this week I had to come out the tree at noon. My feet were so cold that they were numb, I couldnt feel my feet walking out the woods..You can bet it wont happen next year. I dont care how they will cost me!!
