I've always been told red wing of redmans are the best.

Been buying these for a few years from sportsmansguide dot com. Model 160811 waterproof 400 thinsulate. Very comfortable not too hot in summer not too cold in winter. Hold up really well. About $59 I think.

For the past 8-10 years I have been wearing Chippewa Supper Loggers all year round. Got to get brown not black, black is to hot. I usually buy a new pair in the April and a new pair in October. Very pricey but if your feet aren't happy then you mind as well stay home.

Timberland pitboss, very happy with them. Most importantly they are comfortable although they do get slippery on the trailer gate when doing mulch. Something about the dye and rubber tread. Just bought my second pair today

Chippewa

I wear Chippewa Apaches pretty much all year round. They are fantastic boots, really warm, protective, and even pretty sharp looking. I highly recommend them, they have been servicing me for over 5 years, and have held up extremely well. I condition them a few times throughout the year, and they look great. If you're in the market for a pair of boots, I recommend them!

The only problem was with their soft somewhat clear looking sole, the lugs wore off by Sept leaving them slick as can be. I don't really want a 48" walk behind sliding back on top of me on a hillside because I slipped and fell.

I'm looking for a good pair on non-insulated 6" boots with preferably a Vibram sole. If not that something that wont' slide on a hill with you.

We've got a lot of properties with some pretty steep to steep banks that have to be trimmed and I need a pair of boots that will stick. I've always liked the Vibram sole, but I haven't been able to find a pair that isn't a winter type (insulated) boot.

Any suggestions are appreciated...
If ya love the doc's , why not have them resoled?

I don't think these are able to be re-soled... They have that somewhat translucent amber colored sole, don't know if you can redo them or not?
