You’ll be no good on your feet in the field if you can’t feel your toes. With the weather only set to get colder, it’s time to con­sider whether your trusty old pair of bat­tered boots are still up to the job.

Ev­ery­one needs a go-to win­ter welling­ton that will keep you shoot­ing what­ever the weather. Here are six for your con­sid­er­a­tion.

Neo­prene, neo­prene, neo­prene. The best wel­lies on the mar­ket for the win­ter months are lined with this syn­thetic rub­ber, which makes an ex­cel­lent in­su­la­tor along­side the nat­u­ral rub­ber con­struc­tion of most boots. Aside from heat re­ten­tion, you’re go­ing to want some­thing that keeps out the wa­ter while en­sur­ing your foot re­mains com­fort­able be­cause, chances are, you’re go­ing to be wear­ing these wel­lies for a long stretch.

The good news is that with so many op­tions to choose from, it’s pretty hard to go wrong when buy­ing a new pair.
