    Depends how long are you going to stay outside at -10, if just walking for 10 minutes or brushing the snow off the car it's warm enough, if you want to stay on a stadium and look for the sport event for example, better take uggs or other fur boots.
    I have a fur lined Santonis that are warm enough to walk 10 min at -20, but not comfortable at -5..0.
    I also got the shaft shearling Galways that are warm enough till -5, just like any other not lined boots, useless boots for cold winter.
    Now want something to wear in rotation with Santoni and EG at the same time.

    Leaves,

    what about the soles? Full rubber commando or combination rubber/leather commando. I would prefer a full rubber commando soles.

    I can tell we do not have many skiers here. Shearling around foot or ankles will keep those areas warmer leather but you real problems are feet. You feet are on the ground and any insulation there is difficult to achieve. I can feel the difference between single leather sole and dainte soles, dainite will be considerable warmer. However the product you really need is Grabber Foot Warmer, it is for single usage and it may seem expensive but it really works better than anything.

    Thanks Patrik, you're too kind...actually, for me the whole project was just driven by the fact that I coveted these boots!

    Been crazy busy the last couple of weeks - took me a whole week to find the time to pay the second instalment. So I'm still waiting on my Cognac jumpers...they're in transit somewhere in snailspace.

    Hanoiboy's photo is encouraging - looks like the "dark Cognac" spec we slaved over so long and hard has paid off handsomely.

    Anyway, here's hoping my boots arrive in time for Xmas, but if they don't, I'm not going to cry in my soup, as I recently took delivery of Skoaktie's Carmina brown suede tanker boots on the Soller last, which are so incredible I feel like weeping. And the fit? Well, what can I say - they fit like sex.

    As great as those boots look - and they look fantastic - I know they have nothing to do with, and can't compare to, sex. For Christmas I wish for you not only the boots you have coming, but a lot of sex so that you can know the difference.

    How long after a purchase is made from Skoatiebolaget (shipping to US) does a tracking number appear? Will I receive tracking to track the package within Europe and another once the package hits stateside? I made the purchase yesterday morning. Crossing my fingers it arrives before the end of next week [​IMG]

    Thanks all.

    It takes about a week on average, door to door. Tracking should show up within 24hrs - usually sooner. Once the package hits the States, you can track it on the USPS web site.

    Correct, you should be able to track the parcel within 24-36 hrs through www.usps.com. Shipping takes about 5-8 days to the US east coast.

    I also wouldn't be the least bit shocked if the seasonal spike in volume lengthens the postal delivery average a bit.

    The only version Carmina use is the rubber/leather ones.
