Down Type: the general rule is that goose down is warmer than duck down with the exception of down from Eider Ducks. Goose down is also more expensive. Make your choice of down type based on temperature ratings and budget.
Fill Power: the higher the numbers the warmer the foot duvets. 500 being the coolest and 800 the hottest.
Temperature ratings: Evaluate what your uses and needs are for your down booties. Your needs are very different if you are embarking on an extreme cold expedition or if you are enjoying outdoor winter family recreations for a few hours at a time.
Fabric: Breathable fabrics always work best with down and therefore foot duvets are recommended for extremely cold but dry climates...
...BUT if you are at risk of getting them wet, it would be wise to purchase down booties designed and constructed with waterproof fabric specifically designed for such conditions. Failing to do so could spell a disaster in some situations because down looses it's heating properties when wet.
