    I have the brit style muckboots as well that allow for riding. They're a bit clunky to get in the stirrup, but I have a big foot.

    There are many good boots on the market, so I won't recommend any not already listed here. I used to teach OUTSIDE in the winter and I was in non-heated surroundings from 8 AM to 4 PM most Saturdays, even with snow and ice and very cold. You must avoid SWEATING in your boots. Therefore I recommend two pairs of socks:
    1 pair of 100% silk next to your skin
    1 pair of either 100% COTTON OR 100% wool
    (Some socks that are 85% wool and 15% acrylic/nylon are fine, too. The other is the elastic stitching.)
    Buy boots that are big enough and/or wide enough so that with the socks on you can move your toes around. You will have a pocket of air that gets warm and surrounds your toes and keeps them warm.
    ALSO, Drive out in other shoes and socks. Change into your outside shoes and socks in a place that is not heated but out of the wind. Make sure that your feet are completely dry before you put on your outside socks and shoes.
    I used to change back into my driving shoes right before I left.
    DH and I even camped when it was nighttime temps in the 20s and we wore heavy leather boots, and we kept our feet warm this way, although we packed several pairs of socks.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned them but I absolutely love my dublin pinnacle boots. I got them last winter to have a boot I could work and ride in and they were perfect! I have short legs and somewhat wide calves too and they fit me soooo well. All the other boots were too tall. Every once and awhile I just respray them with waterproofing spray and I've had no issues! Even in 4" of mud haha
