A regular pair of $60-$100 work boots are the best in my opinion. This past season I spent $145 on a discounted $190 Red Wing boot (soft toe) and they are like having cinder blocks on your feet. I use walk behind mowers and I almost had a heat stroke in the dead of Summer when I first started wearing them. Then I tried some cheap $25 boots from Kmart which I would tear apart every six weeks only wearing them 3-4 days a week.

I ended up finishing the last three months of the season wearing a $40 pair of black reebok hightop sneakers when I was mowing lawns and they are still in great shape, and light.

The $60-$100 work boot is the best in my opinion, they will most likely last you the season and then you buy a new pair for the following season. My Red WIngs are now my snow boots and serious landscaping boots for big jobs.
