These Skechers offer a bit more comfort and are light weight. Plus they have a bit more thickness protecting the foot. It is real easy to shuffle around in these.

One reason I kind of veered away from boots was because of the weight and comfort. Maybe I can look into Red Wings and see what they are about and check out the varying options in that brand.

And never heard of Justin boots. I may check those out too.
My Keen boots will beat any "tennis" shoes for all day work comfort. Dry feet all day is worth the cost alone.

Justin or Red Wings are really good boots, I've had both. I will say though, if you want some extremely comfortable work boots, take a look at the Georgia Boot Wedge. They are the closest thing to sneakers I've ever worn in a work boot.
