    I like a roper/cowboy boot style. By far best boots ive worn are Ariat Workhogs. Square toe ropers, steel toe, clean up nice. Ive worn them to dinner and my wife( aka the fashion police) didnt even realize i was wearing my everyday workboots.

    Bought my first pair of boots made by Keen last year from Duluth Trading Company (lifetime no BS guarantee) and they have been the most confortable boots I have had for a long time. I managed to destroy them in a season but will be shipping them back to company for a new pair.

    I agree I could never find a boot that is comforting until i bought keens omg the support on your foot i could march the Appalachian trail with a Trimmer in one hand a mower on my back and pushing an aerator with the other hand without a single sore foot:cool2:

    You guys may not believe this, but a great boot for the money is the Brahma Bravo sold at Wal-Mart: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Brahma-6-Wide-Men-s-Bravo-Workboot/20680484?findingMethod=rr
    I was very surprised with the boot to say the least. My biggest complaint with work boots is not comfort, but the durability of the sole. When you or I are out there walking 18-20 miles a day on a lawn maintenance route, and half of the walking is on concrete, soles wear out fast. Brands like Wolverine, Timberland, and Red Wing are all top-notch, but their soles are made for softer surfaces found on the trail--not concrete. The Brahma boot has a hard rubber compound that outlasts the other above-mentioned brands (tried 'em all). For a waterproof, insulated boot with good durability--all for $35.00--that's a good buy.

    I've been wearing these blundstone for the last year. So far they're holding up well. In past years I was getting about a year out of Wolverine boots.
