185 red wing well worth it
The Woverine dura-shocks are good. Real easy on the old feet.
I wear "Survivers" from Walmart. They are waterproof, and right at $50. Very comfortable....and not so heavy. I would like to wear steel toes...but they are too heavy.
Steel toes aren't gonna help if you stick your foot under the deck.
Sneakers for me. The lighter, the better, I put on a lot of miles.
I used to wear Wolverines but they didn't last long enough and my feet would hurt once in a while. I now use Danner Workman, they are waterproof. These are the highest quality and most comfortable boots I have ever worn. I can work work 10-12 hour days (walking, no riders) and my feet hold up fine, wish I could say the same about my knee. Only down side is that I only get about 6 months out of a pair which is still more than any other boot I have tried. Price is compareble with Redwing and high end Wolverines at $170 a pair, worth every penny to me.
You guys wear shoes?
Used to wear Caterpillar and Wolverine (same company) then started wearing Red Wings.
Steel toe is great. It stands up to hits from the trimmer string, and in the rare occasion of sticking your toes under the mower, they are better than non-steel toes.
I usually wear logger style work boots. Not the easiest on the turf, but thats what i'm most comfortable in.
I wear water resistant hiking shoes, they are durable and give you the protection of workboots without the weight. Mine right now are a pair of Nike ACGs
