I use the Canadian felt liners from The Felt Store (available on Amazon). They are good to -40. Size 13 liners fit perfectly into the XL Stabilicers boots.
But both pairs of the boots with stabilicers came with the cleats not entirely screwed in. Some were actually loose. A small hex wrench is included so it's very easy to tighten them. Just be sure you do it.
cons: in extreme cold weather i have personally broke off the plastic piece on the tip of the strap holding down the neos against the boot. the so called grip studs on the bottom do come out fairly easy if not looked after so i suggest checking them often, like once a day, luckily the boots have a nice storage pouch inside where it carries the stud tightener. the grip studs do not do well on ice, you will still slide around, they almost dont do anything on ice.
So, I originally bought the medium size because I'd measured my shoes and gone by the size chart on the NEO website. I found it impossible to get my shoe into the boot though, despite careful measuring and loosening straps, etc. So I sent them back and exchanged them for the next size up. The fact that the measuring chart and reality of these overshoes isn't quite realistic might make some people dock a star, I pondered docking one because of the size issue. But these shoes are so well made and sturdy, I feel that realistically they deserve all the stars you can give them.
These overshoes are quite large because they have to go OVER your shoe and foot and thus, can't be the same size. So walking around in them looks and feels awkward while you're in that "I'm getting used to this" phase. But they do feel comfortable and warm otherwise, right out of the box. Yes, they are a bit heavy and yes, it is awkward. Please remember these are meant to go OVER your shoes and that's why they're awkward at first and why they feel heavy. You're wearing two pairs of shoes. I feel like I have to repeat that a lot, because at first, I found it frustrating and I have seen a number of reviews posted from people who just couldn't bear these shoes. I did find that they can be a bit iffy when you take them off, and I often have to fish out my regular shoes after I take off the boots but that's not a deal breaker for me. Also, I have large calves. Large enough that it does make buying boots difficult, and these do "wrap" around your calves with velcro. My calves are too large for these (and I have short legs with probably doesn't help that) at the top and I worried about how I'd keep them on. I pondered getting those straps that cyclists use to hold their pantlegs in place, and using that to help hold the boot in place but even though I can't fully velcro ALL the velcro parts, they stay on and it's not a problem. But if that becomes an issue for me at some point, that's my "fix" solution. I'm glad I made the investment, they're working out perfectly.
I think the only negative I can come up with is that actually, these might not be very easy to run in. At least for me.
I did find the price a little daunting because I'm on a bit of a fixed income as a teacher, but if you shop around and put a little effort into it, it is possible to find them for a lesser price.
