    As much as we are on our feet and in all different types of terrain and weather. Does anybody have an opinion on a good set of work boots. I go through about 2 pair a year and tried a few different companies....... Husky, Rocky and so on. Either they are to hot, wear out or say they are waterproof and dont come close to keeping my feet dry.

    I would say a good pair of lightweight hiking boots are the way to go.
    I pay ..i think.... like $75-$80 for the ones I get and they last me all year.
    Wolverine waterproof hiking boot with some good inserts....Pleasure to the feet

    red wing, now you can close the thread.

    I am kind of a cheap arse, but when it comes to the feet, that's when I'll shell out as much as possible for comfort.

    I have 3 pairs of boots the at use weekly i switch off... i read in a study that the same pair of shoes/boots every day is bad for the feet. my feet feel better when i do this and it's more comfortable... less blisters and sh**

    My wife got me a pair of Field and Stream work boots for Christmas because she was tired of seeing my old Rockies. She bought them at Sports Authority. I was not sure about them until I wore them. Best pair of boots I've ever had. More comfortable than Rocky or Wolverine or any other brand I've ever worn. Not too expensive either..only $89 and seem to be holding up great and I've been wearing them every day since January.

    I use Carolina steel toe boots. They're great. Cost about $100, but they are worth it.

    Danner boots.....use them to mow, fert, sprinkler stuff and hang x-mas lights in the fall. Breath well when its in the 100's and they are waterproof for about a year. I go through 1 and a half pairs a year (usually get a pair in Oct for B-Day) About $145 a pair money well spent!
