Work Boots????

Looking for a good work boot at a reasonable price. Everything seems a little high but I may just be cheap. Any advice would be appreciated.

I love Caterpillar boots. They are super comfy and look great at the same time. They last forever and a day also. I am rocking a pair that are like 10 years old. I have a back-up new pair that I wear occasionally.

I like the timberland pro's they are tough but still light enough to use for mowing.

I wear these by Thorogood. They're actually desert combat boots. Lightweight and steel toe. I work for an electrical utility and wear them in the gravel, 1"-3" rock, concrete, dirt, and mud. I climb ladders, use shovels, and walk steel beams with them. During the cutting season I maintain the substation yards so they get plenty of use at lawn care. Good boots and comfortable.

I bought a pair of Carhart boots from Tractor Supply about 1.5 months ago. Steel Toe and water proof. Nice and comfy! They weren't cheap..$150 but hopefully there will last for a few years!

Asolo Hiking boots.

I go through one pair a year, $200 bucks a pop. My feet are part of the machine that is me, so I don't skimp on boots.
