    Red wings, there no break in time and will last a long time. Ive had mine a year, and bet I could get 1 more. I wore out $80 sears boots in 6 months.

    like Ryan Lighting said, Red Wings are great. Had them in the past and hard to beat, but I did pick up a pair of Georgia boots this past spring that I really like as well. Wear them everyday, even when not working. Took a couple days to break them in, but a good boot. And they are the 6" boot, I don't like anything higher unless they're my hunting boots.

    Red Wings all the way. I've had mine for 3 years now and just gettin' them broke in and ready for another 3 years.

    I've had great luck with Wolverines. The thing that I like about them is that they are SO soft. It's like walking on pillows. Each pair last me a few years.

    I prefer the Timberland Pro boots. I have two pair, one is a low cut style like a shoe I wear for maint. and mowing, and the other is an 8" style with steel toe for running machinery and hardscaping..

    Kmart cheapies... $35 bucks and their water proof. they're the hiking style work boot. bought them in February.. wearing them as i type right now, reluctant to start another leaf clean up... damn its cold. :help:

    i'm going in a couple of days to buy another pair, in black, to double as snow boots and to go with my santa suit, under the black boot top with fur :blob3:

    Just one question.....what's wrong with sneakers? not in the late fall or winter, but Why not sneakers in the spring and summer?

    Steel-toed Doc Matrins....best boot I have owned. Paid around $125 3 years ago and still going strong. My feet have never taken to boots well, but these did.
