  • I've got O'neil superfreak 5MM - will be good for nov/dec/jan and further on.  I prefer round toe (keep all my piggies together) - hate split toe as it feels like they don't really get that warm.

  • i got a split-toe recently and hate it.  Never again.  Personally, i like 7mils for all-winter, but 5 should be fine till jan.

    Exactly. 7ml Xcel round toe. I tried some split toe boots, my feet got cold and they felt weird.
    It's no better to be safe than sorry....

    Agreed - you will soon learn to love that heel pull strap too.

    Same here, I dont even bother with my 5 mills anymore. I got the 7mills in a size 13 so my feet dont feel squashed

  • disgree with all above. I have the O'neill mutant 5/4/3 internal split toe that I love. I wear 'em all winter and they are killer.  Yes, they have the heel pull strap...
