I was very surprised with the boot to say the least. My biggest complaint with work boots is not comfort, but the durability of the sole. When you or I are out there walking 18-20 miles a day on a lawn maintenance route, and half of the walking is on concrete, soles wear out fast. Brands like Wolverine, Timberland, and Red Wing are all top-notch, but their soles are made for softer surfaces found on the trail--not concrete. The Brahma boot has a hard rubber compound that outlasts the other above-mentioned brands (tried 'em all). For a waterproof, insulated boot with good durability--all for $35.00--that's a good buy.
I destroy these boots in 6 months i just got my first pair of die hard on black friday and the solo isnt even broken in yet if they last another 6 or 7 months they will be the best shoe i have ever had

I have been wearing Georgia boots for the last few years. the uppers last really well, but the soles lose their cushion after a few months leaving my hips,back, knees, and fee aching constantly. At $130 a pop I decided there must be a better alternative. I got a pair of Columbia hiking boots a couple months ago and love them. Totally comfortable, good tread, dirt and grass don't get inside (if I wear pants). Downside is no steel toe. $90 bucks. So far I'm still very happy with them. Their made for long distance.

Yes, truly a find for the price. It's good to know someone else is wearing the same boot.
