I use Military Deployment boots. VERY comfortable (basically like wearing tennis shoes) extremely breathable and lightweight. Did I mention cheap?

Wish I was like some of y'all that can wear shoes until they rot. But I feel aches and pains that essentially go away quite quickly with new footwear. I like pain-free...it is FAR better than...PAIN.

Best advice: find footwear that is comfortable to YOUR feet...and stay in new or newer footwear to avoid discomfort/pain. The reward for being painfree is not much...until you are IN pain.
Cushy/spongy footwear will break down FASTER. Instead, go w/ stability that will help correct/alleviate any unusual gait/wear patterns you may have/observe in your old shoes/boots/etc.

Never heard of these. Deployment boots were part of your deployment uniform which was specified for the theater you were operating in.

Wish I could find a Redwing dealer around here. I would definitely buy a pair.

What kind of work do you do most/all of the day?

I've got two main pairs I rotate. Both roper(cowboy boot) styles. Ariat Work Hogs (square toe/steel toe) and a pair of steel toe Dr. Martens.

I found a footlocker in my attic yesterday with gear I shipped home from Iraq. Found three pairs of desert tan boots. Two pairs had the tags on them. Looks like I've got some new grass cutting boots.

Timberland Pros have been the most comfortable for me, feel like wearing a pair of running shoes. My 9" insulated have lasted 2 winters, and my 6" are past a year now, although time for another.
My Red Wings weren't what I wanted in them, spent a lot of money and at the end of 2 months they just hurt my feet. They make a great boot though and I know plenty who will vouch. I may try another pair some day but so far my Timberlands have been the best.
