I'm looking to set myself up for some backcountry touring in the cold and would like to hear from someone with experience with leather boots.
How cold of temperatures can you comfortably tour in with leather boots without an extra liner - just a sock or two?
Should I get larger boots and wear maybe 2 or 3 pair of wool socks inside until it fits properly, or is this a bad idea? I would definitely understand it being a bad idea for AT skis going downhill and needing lots of performance, but I am just talking backcountry touring with maybe a downhill now and then.
Or do I need to get a boot such as the Alico Telemark ski boots that have an extra liner?
