    Gotta be Danner they fit like tennis shoes once they get broke in. I wear the Danner 453GTX. They are light, just tall enough for the ankle support and waterproof.

    I also wear the Converse Desert boots, wore them at the Kandahar Airfield while working for a private contractor. They are light, sturdy, comfortable and provide decent traction and easy to take off. Just got a new pair for the season.

    Converse C8991 Combat Boots Safety Toe. It is hard to find anything else in a size 16.

    These boots worked 12 hour minimum shist 7 days a week for years in Afganistan and stayed comfortable. I have a pair on right now. :weightlifter:

    I'm currently wearing some good ol' Red Wing boots. They cost me like $180, but I think they're well worth it. I havent had any problems with them so far and they are very comfortable. The ones I have are waterproof aswell. I have had these for several months so I cant give durability reports, but I fully expect these to last me a long time.
