They aren't skinny, i have semi wide feet.

edit: these are the merrells i have:

Those are the merrells I have, I really like them, pretty dern comfy too, I might a second pair for when they discontinue them..

Another thought is buy boots from ll bean, 100% money back guarantee no questions asked plus they pay for return shipping. I know someone who sent them one shoe and they got another pair in return.

I have had a pair of these Sorrels for at least 15 years. They are absolutely water proof supper warm. They are as comfortable as sippers. This is what I wear when it's going to be cold and wet. Oh you can pull the insets out and get heavier or lighter depending if you need more insulation or not. Or if the wool wears out. I've gone through one set of inserts in the time I've had them. Totally worth the $$. You can get them for about 100 if you look. Or find them on Craigslist.

I recommned Dubarry. They make what they call, "country boots." From my experience with their sailing boots, the'yre comfortable, warm, dry and good looking in my opinion. They're GORE-TEX too. I believe that the differences between the sailing boots and the country boots are probably the soles. I can't speak highly enough about their products.

Danners, try the cold weather RAT boots. They aren't pretty but they are like wearing gym shoes and they are waterproof.

You just need a easy to clean, over the ankle boots. Wellingtons from Cabelas, leather and gore tex, is the best combo of comfort, performance, and easiness to maintain.

As an owner of 4 sets of muck boots I would endorse them but prepare for sweaty feet. Don't wear cotton socks with them, even in the summer I wear wool socks with them. They are OK for driving the 110, but I prefer a different boot for that. I use them for occaisional hunting and yard work. You can even fold them down like the ladies do with their UGGS

I would not want to have them on when its really cold. I think I have about 15 pairs of boots to choose from though...

Those where my "everyday" winter boots when I lived in NH/VT/OH/WI. Though, I also have a pair of steel toed Sorels that were my work boots. The Caribou are really nice boots and the fur collar actually does keep snow out without having to have boots tightly laced, which helps circulation and therefore foot warmth. The Vibram lug sole helps messing about in the woods. I even found the particular compound they use to be good on ice.
I kept two sets of liners so I could swap them out each day.
They are large (which is one thing you don't want) but I didn't have any issues driving my Series with them.
I keep hoping for a huge snow storm here in GA so I can wear them.

I looked closer at the Caribou and mine are a different boot. Looks like Sorel doesn't make the ones I have anymore. But they are very similar to the Caribou, but mine have a traditional Vibram lug sole.
