I got a pair of the for Christmas.
They also sell a insole made from alpaca felt.
I'm going to have check those out.
I grew up snow skiing, and with lace-up boots in my early days. The ONLY way to have warm feet in real cold weather is to leave room for your feet to move around a bit. It isn't about leaving air in there for insulation. It is about your feet actually moving around inside the boots. Competitive skiers crank their boots down as tightly as possible to make a run, and as soon as they finish, they un-buckle their boots (and hold up their skis for the endorsement money). They need super-tight boots for the best control during a race, but their feet will freeze with the boots that tight.
2 sizes larger than your shoe size sounds about right for a cold-weather boot. Especially if you are going to be sitting a lot vs. walking around. With over-sized boots, if you get cold, just walk around a little (your feet will move around inside the boots) and feet should warm up pretty quickly.
