My toes get pretty cold and I found these extreme comfort rated boots. I figure they don't need to work at that cold of temperature but I'm sure they would be great to -20F. They are about 2.5lb per shoes. They are pretty tall so I can use them for winter hiking and not get snow in them, windproof and waterproof. I like that I would get more than 1 use (i.e. just cycling) out of them.
Am I being ridiculous for getting such a boot and would I be okay with something only rated to -20F? I don't use my clipless pedals since I can't stay in my road shoes, despite neoprene booties and a heavy wool sock. I can't stuff more in there without smushing my toes. I can use a chemical warmer but I would rather not do that every time I cycle. I also like using platforms during the winter since it puts my mind at peace.
I am missing my rides of 3-4hrs because of my toes so any advice is appreciated!
