work boots

I highly recommend hiking boots from EMS. Think the one I bought is called 'vesque' or something along that line. Not cheap, almost 200 bucks but well worth it. Goretex, very supportive, thick sole, comfy, great traction and looks good too. Last pair I had lasted me almost 9 years until the sole cracked from using a spade to do some edging. I also tried the Timberland pro series, didnt last more than a season but they were alot cheaper. Redwing is also top on my list.

I have the 'Safety' series steel toe Caterpillar mid-top them, very comfortable and offer great protection, best safety boot I've used to date. They cost ~$65 if I remember correctly.
