I second the Georgia Boot vote!!! Everyone's feet are different, but for mine I have found the Georgia's to be one of the best. Not cheap, but solid, and you get what you pay for!

Ive tried Danner, Wolverine, Rockies, Timberland Pro, Timberland (old school style), and Merrill. Danner was the most comfortable but really expensive. Timberland (not Pro) was the best bang for the buck in my opinion. If you can part with the cash, give Danner a try. Lotsa guys wear Redwings...I may try them next time.

Boots

I don't wear boots, I wear addidas running shoes. I buy them before the mowing season and throw them away after.

I ran Georgia boots for several years, loved them. I got a pair of schmits last year and love them too. Red wings are nice, but for a rip off of a price...

I forgot to mention i always get the slip on kind too, no laces... Keeps the grass and dirt away from your foot and socks. Obviously you cant wear them with shorts but i wear pants every day.

Justin slide-on work boots are by far the most comfortable I have ever worn. I have tried Rockys a few years ago, and Timberlands for the last couple of years up until this year. I love my Justins. Just slide 'em on and go. No laces.
