ive got a pair of timberland pros and i like them. i was in the army for 5 years and really hate boots period. i go threw a couple pairs of shoes a year. used to get boots every year but dont think i will with these. only part i dont like is the weight of the boots and took a lil while to break in. overall though i love em. not bad for $40 nib at a garage sale.

Under Armour Valsetz for dry warm weather. They are VERY light and have good beathablility. Under Armour Speed Freek for wet or cold weather. They are Gortex and again very light and easy on the feet!!

We think your best bet for boots and safety is to make sure your shoes or boots have good tread on them – slick soles are dangerous. Always make sure to put down something for traction, such as kitty litter, and something for ice melt – look for the environmentally sound options.

I have tried just about everything too. My favorite by far is Merrell hiking shoes with the custom Dr. Sholls insoles for my foot type. Worth every penny. About $115 for the shoes and 45 for the custom insoles for my foot type. Large boots are just too heavy for me. I am on my feet all day with the exception of sitting on a Z. I also have really bad feet from playing sports all my life. You should give them a try.

I am sold on merrell boots. Tried wolverine Georgia boot red wing and a few others. None of them came close to being as comfortable and lasting as long as the merrell boots. It is all I buy now. They will last 2 years at least.
