    I agree about good boots. I don’t get 2 years out of them though….I normally have to buy new ones about once a year

    I had Redwings and loved them but they were heavy. I now wear Ariat slip ons and also have a pair of their lacers. The quality is just as good as the Redwings and they weigh alot less. The price is around the same, around $130.

    Georgia loggers for me. Redwing loggers are ok too but I wasn't impressed with how my last pair held up. Seems they went downhill right when the tag went from made in usa to made in china

    I dont like ga boots anymore because the heals are cardboard i had a old pair and witnessed it my self. It seems like the heals always mess up. I just bought a pair of iris settlers, they are light, kangerro leather, and have and are gore-tex.
