The only way to know if the stirrup fits is to try. Good news is western is much easier to swap out.
Cotton is bad, as it holds moisture. The nylon wicks sweat out to the wool, which dries faster. Boys in construction taught me 'The Sock System'. The military uses it, too.
I bought a knock-off boot with a -40C rating and put a thermal insole in it, reflective side down. Works like a charm.
As far as heels go, it's not perfect, but there's still something there.
On warmer days, I skip the nylon sock or just use cotton.
