    Again, my comment had nothing to do with your review.
    I clearly said "youtube". I seen a negative review on YouTube. That doesnt relate to you.

    ok, now I read your review. But, that doesnt change anything. I still seen a negative review on youtube.
    I dont know why you assume my statement has anything to do with you. especially after I said many times, I wasn't referring to your comment.
    Why are you so sensative?
    The OP asked for recommendation, why do I need to read an entire thread to leave mine?

    I’m suggesting as a friend that you may enjoy your experience on this site more if you read all the posts in a thread before you comment. That’s true for everybody. I’ll admit that I have failed to read all the posts in a thread and found myself in a similar situation as you find yourself now. Others have as well.

    Thanks for the advice, friend.
    But the reality is you got offended because I said "I seen negative reviews on youtube" as a response to someone else asking about a specific product.
    My comment is true, regardless of what anyone posts on here. But if I'm not looking for boot recommendations, I'm not reading pages of reccomendations. Honestly, I dont need to read them to leave my recommendation either. If I respond to someone else, it would have been the same regardless of your opinion.
    You, took my comment personally. Then, you started defending yourself, about how you review is unbiased and not bought.
    The truth is I believe you, I dont believe certain reviews on YouTube, That have been posted by youtubers who except free products, and sponsorships.
    Anyway, I'm happy you have good experiences with your shoes.

    The owner takes the employees, after their first 90 days of employment (and again each year of employment) to buy boots. A lot of people seem to pick Carolina brand.

    I heard the Carolinas boots are nice.

    I get that you think I'm being insincere, but I meant it, really.

    Nice little bonus for sure. Those are what 200 or 300 a pair?

    I got Blundstones for this season, not sure if anyone else has used them. They don’t have the greatest ankle support when walking on steep hills. But they’re completely waterproof and because they’re leather they form to your foot after a short time of use. They’re comfortable, steel toe if you get the safety version. I like them, not cheap though, $200+ CAD

    It depends on which style or brand is chosen. It ranges from $100-$200 + tax. My boss looks at it as an investment (I agree). If you have wet or hurting feet, you’re less likely to perform efficiently.
