    I'm looking at getting some boots since my tennis shoes are about done. I don't really want to spend a couple hundred on a pair of boots. So what boots do you recommend, if any, that are less than $100. If you recommend any boots over $100 can you just state how much you paid for them. Any feedback would be great. Thanks :)

    I paid 200 for my red wings. My feet are in heaven. I bought other cheapies to last only 6 months is a joke. My red wings will easily last 2 years. They are almost a year old and barely broke in.

    I have been buying the Wolverine pull on boots from a store in NC called the Shoe Dept.. They are $79 and wear really good if you like a pull on boot.

    Red Wings low quarter leather boots. They cost about $150 but wear well and you can't wear them out. You get what you pay for. You cannot go wrong with these boots!

    Ariat Workhogs, by far the most comfortable boot ive ever worn. And after 8 years in the Army, i know how to put a boot to the test.

    I loved my Lawngrips but the ones I wore are not in stock any longer, so....

    I just bought a pair of Keen Detroit Mid work shoes, steel toe. Light and comfortable right out of the box, I can already tell. As far as how long they will last, time will tell but other guys on here seem to like them.
