    I'm in need of a new pair of boots, I prefer steel toe... I currently have a pair of Timberland Pro boots, they've been fairly comfy. I'm looking for that "ahhh" feeling...like sneakers but boots. I like 6-8" tall boots. Any suggestions? I heard Redwing & Chippewa have lifetime warranties but i haven't been able to find anything...

    Bate side zip are comforable and light, only, not very water proof. A lot of cops wear them.

    Red Wings are hands down the best pair of boots I've ever owned. Made in the USA :usflag:

    I still wear a pair of 15 year old Redwings mowing grass on occasion. Goodyear tread shows no wear!
    I just bought a pair of Wolverine slip on boots too but more for casual use.

    I have (2) pairs of Irish setters by RedWing. I liked the first pair so much I had to get another. Extremely comfortable and waterproof. From cutting grass (walk behind) to anything else they hold up well. Ive had the first pair resoled once. Great snow boot as well. Crazy but I wear the thinsulate all year long. Hot summer days and yes i wear them. I also own danners. A pair of strikers with 6" that worked well and was tennis shoe like. Similar to the bates posted above. I also have danner Acadia 8" for 7 years now and resoled once. My Irish setters are every bit as good and i highly recommend them.

    I have used Keens for 2/3 season now and they are holding up. They DO feel like a nice tennis shoe right from the git go.

    By the way, I did a double take on your thread title, thought it said 'boobs lets talk':)

    Just got some redwings for my son. Many if not most are made in china now. Quality is still there. I've been wearing them for 25 years now. Most comfortable shoes i've ever worn. Love the pecos boot.
