I am going to Kodiak for the first time for Thanksgiving. I will be going on quite a few hikes, not sure exactly which ones yet. I have been told that extratufs make great hiking boots. Can anyone comment on that? I would like to stay dry during my stay in Kodiak, and warm. I have a hard time keeping my feet warm during the winter, would the insulated boots be the way to go? I believe they come in different heights, what height would be ideal? I am such a newbie to exploring the outdoors I need all the advice I can get!
