In all the years I have had Wiggys I have not made a product just because someone thought I should. I maintained if I could improve on something that someone else makes, then and only then would I make it. Both the Muk Luks and Over boots are great items as was the Herman boot made with Lamilite. The Muk Luks and Over boots will without question keep your feet warm in very cold conditions, but they have one drawback, they cannot be used on concrete or black top pavement. That type of surface will wear them out quickly. I do make the Sunwalkers, which are Lamilite inserts for all of the pack boots currently available on the market. They are an improvement over the felt liners, and originally made for a police officer with the Barrow, Alaska police department. They are a 1000 percent improvement over the felt liners that come with the pack boots. The felt absorbs the moisture from the foot, which is the part of the body that emits the greatest amount of moisture. Once absorbed the wet felt liner needs to be in a house with heat for as much as two days to dry. They also wear and need replacement sometimes during the season if worn often. The Sunwalker never absorbs any moisture, can be worn as a bootie around the campsite as well as in the sleeping bag. Sunwalkers are so durable they can go from a worn out pack boot to a new pack boot. Now for the exciting news, I am manufacturing pack boots that utilize a molded rubber sole that keeps its flexibility in temperatures as cold as 40 degrees. The upper or shaft is insulated with, you guessed it Lamilite. And the liner is of course the Sunwalker. These pack boots are an improvement over all other previously produced pack boots. The Sunwalkers are still available for those of you who have pack boots; cost is $49.00 per pair. They are available in sizes from 7 to 14. They have been improved, by replacing the sole with a rubberized sole, which is also on the inside, which gives excellent traction and eliminates slippage. Now for some technical information why my pack boots are significantly more efficient than what has been produced before I started making pack boots. It all rests on the Lamilite insulation and how it is used in the boots. First the lower part of the boot, the waterproof part is roomier than traditional pack boots. The reason for the extra room is to allow the Lamilite to expand to its maximum thickness. Remember the greater the thickness the harder it is for the heat produced by the foot to be conducted away from the foot, and conversely the more difficult for outside cold to settle into the boot, hence giving you cold feet.
