My mukluks filled with near freezing

water a couple Decembers ago during an out of boat experience and after just a few minutes of standing in chest deep water with the boat, I was getting greatly concerned about hypothermia just from the water in my mukluks - it never started warming up.
Everything else stayed dry inside and I warmed up quickly after getting on shore and removing the mukluks, dumping them and wringing out the wool socks and putting it all back on.
My mukluks don't seal well around my skinny calves when against slick nylon type material.
Fortunately, the air temp was about 50 F, so there wasn't any freezing to be concerned with when out of the water or when my feet were bare.
