I just got some for Christmas and I LOVE them too! Maybe it's because my feet are small, or something, but I haven't had an issue with them making my feet too wide wide for the stirrups. That stinks that you can't ride in them, I love riding in mine.
I love them even more when I put on wool socks AND my muckboots. SO warm.
My other favorite thing to do when it's cold is bicycling tights under my pants. I don't bicycle but I found a stash of tights (in my size) at a local thrift store and discovered that they are fantastic layered under jeans (or breeches, I'd assume). It's kind of like UnderArmor, only cheaper!
Also, wool sweaters under coats. That's another thrift store discovery. A wool sweater under a coat=the warmest ever.
