    I've tried boot after boot after boot and not cheapo's. Usually I would spend anywhere from 100.00-130.00 on a pair but they never seemed to last or they just were'nt comfortable. BUT, if your looking for a very, very comfortable, rugged, great traction boot buy "Daner's", I bought the Instigator Brown GTX Gortex They were like puting on sneakers and great support etc. I paid 162.00 (ouch) but so far their worth their weight in gold. Just thought I would share my great findings with others who were looking for a great boot.:waving:

    No sorry, A guy at Dick's Sporting Good's store told me about a place called "Rockwall Haven" (I think) in a local Mall so I just went there and there they were.

    Good looking boot. $160 is cheap compared to having to go to the chiropractor because your bones got out of whack wearing bad shoes. I've heard of it happening. My brother was in marching band, carrying a big bass drum, and the shoes they wore and the way they had to march caused him serious leg pain for a couple years after he quit the band.

    I have about 8 pairs of Danner boots....they're great. Another good brand is Muck. If you want a good slip on boot for working in wet/muddy areas. Don't buy the knock-offs, make sure they are made by Muck. The pair I have cost about $90.

    My redwings were killing me! A great boot, but without the Dr S's inserts I would have traded up.

    My Redwings are the only boots I've ever worn that didn't have a 'break-in' period. Comfortable for 8+ hrs. each day. I think it's just different for everyone. To each his own sorta thing.
