    I know this will be potporri and everyone will have their favorites but what kind of boots/shoes does eveyone wear?

    I always wear Red Wings: $225 a pair, low Vibram cleat, waterproof inner liner (used to be Goretex but now they're using something different), high top and take them into dealer every two months for re-oiling. Usually last me two years and then purchase another pair.

    I rotate many pairs of (wet) boots, saving the Timberlands for the coldest days. K-mart sometimes has acceptable boots, if I don't care about waterproof. Even those imitations of the L. L. Bean Maine Hunting Shoes get worn sometimes.

    WB... You do know it's Friday evening. Wonder if our Georgia friend will show up again in his loafers and sweat pants?

    Gee, I hope not. As much as I like smacking the occasional troll, it can get real old real fast.

    My last pair was Carolina's...they lasted about 8 months, not bad for what I put them through.

    I'm wearing wolverines this time, not as impressed.

    Justin 8" lacers from either cavenders or sheplers, they look damn fine with a pair of wranglers thrown in the mix

    Georgia friend? Who is that? To answer your question I wear k-mart or wal-mart boots, dont want to ruin my south Georgia reputation of living in wal-mart style:D They run around 25 bucks and last me about a year and no they aint water proof, absorb it water like tissue paper, expecially early in the morning when the grass is wet.

    Not you unless you've changed your name. You'll have to see the lengthy thread or search for "stagnant pressure." :D
