    I seen on here where a lot of guys wear steel toe boots!?!?!

    I am more of a Cabela's 7" All-leather hiker guy w/Vibram sole and of course must be GOR-TEX for tha morning dew. Just curious as what the rest of you LCO's wear. Thinking of Red Wing in the future, but man it's almost a new trimmer :)

    Steel toes for me. Safety over comfort.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist. I wear both. I really like my Smith's non-steel toed work boots. They were waterproof until the started to develop holes. I have had them for about 3 years now. They are so worn in and comftorable. I wear them everywhere. I hardly wear anything else like shoes. I have also used some hikers as well, but I just like the ankle support better frok the work boots.
