    Under Armor(hunting boots) is by far the best. They cost more and were hard to find but I have never had boots hold up like these.

    Not normal at all. I buy danner boots and love them. I have a pair of quarrys with a alloy toe. they have held up for over a year of abuse and still going strong. I wear them everyday.

    Have you tried Brahma's I went through boots after boots some lasted a month to 3 months, I just tried some brahma's middle of last season and everything I have done in them they have last this long, longer than any other boot so far and extremely comfortable no blisters or calluses as I experienced in all the other brands I have destroyed.

    Not tore anywhere, soles are still completely in tact, any others would be flip flopping by 3rd month.

    Give them a shot if you have not tried them.

    This is pair I have did not buy them at wallyworld never go there.

    Everyone's feet are different lol they are so comfortable to me, even timberlands kill my feet, I used Wolverines when I was a welder, they did not like my feet either but of course they were steel toed and steel shielded leg weights lol

    the most comfortable boots I have come across are Hytest Footrests with oblique toe, they are composite toe. feel almost as good as running shoes on foot, I have to work 12 hr. shifts in them, the tend to hold up better than most others. Have wore Danner boots also very nice and can be resoled.

    Red wing hikers do me real well. I can mulch for 8 hours and mow for 2-3 more and still be comfortable. They are well with preventing water from coming in and breath pretty well.

    I had a $25 pair of closeout Lawngrips that just lost a sole after 11 mths. That's about 8 mths of mostly mowing use. No foot pain for a year mowing 4hr per day with a w/b. Sad to hear I can't get a replacement pair. The beveled tread was also excellent at not holding much mud.
    Trying Merrell hikers this time. Thanks for the input.
