    Just A Question. I Have Been Wearing My Wolverine Boots To Cut Grass And Landscape In And Have Been Considering Some Of Those Low Cut Hiking Boots. The Ones That Almost Look Like Running Shoes? What Are You Guys Wearing And What Pros And Cons Have You Run In To?

    i like 10" boots, right now i'm wearing irish setters by red wing, but i also love rockys. i have weird feet and those two are some of the only shoes besides new balance that i have found that don't kill my feet by the end of the day. wolverines are ok too, just not quite as comfortable to me.

    I have some leather Sketchers boots from Kohl's. I think they were like 50-60 dollars and they are comfortable.

    I HAVE THOSE SAME FEET. MY ACTUAL SIZE (WHEN YOU CAN FIND IT) IS A 10 4E. THAT IS WHY I WENT WITH THE WOLVERINES BEFORE. NOT MANY COMPANIES OFFER WIDE SIZES.

    I go bare foot in the summer.

    then you dont have to worry about getting wet boots when it rains.

    I have worn boots for over ten years, now. I've tried many different ones. By far the most comfortable, lightweight and durable boots I have purchased are the Wolverine Durashocks - Model 03122 ONLY. :usflag:

    Those Danner's and Redwing's are definately the BEST quality (IMO) - no doubt. But both are heavy in comparison to the Durashocks and almost require a second mortgage to purchase. :usflag:
