Personally I love these Timberland Pro Steel Toe boots. I add insoles for better shock absorption. Have been using them for years. Very comfy and virtually no break in period. Not the cheapest boot but definitely not the most expensive. They also come in some half sizes. A pair usually lasts me about a year working in them 5-6 days a week, 10 months out of the year, Walking at least 5 miles a day in them.
Hope this helps!
