Work boots

What kinda work boots do you guys like? I usually wear a standard steel toe like Timberland Pit Boss or a quality logger boot. The last two pair of Wolverine logger boots I bought for $170 didn't hold up at all and they're getting sent back. I just order a pair of Carolina boot loggers, much better price. Waiting on ups.

I've bought nothing but Justin WK614 for the last 7 or 8 years. Steel toe and logger heel. Being a landscaper I'm very tough on boots and they last 12-18 months. Price is usually $150-160.

I echo this thought. Have Redwings (steel toe) for work and a pair from their Heritage Collection for when I'm not wearing my work boots. I was going through a pair of work boots every 4-6 months of cheaper boots, $200-$250. Decided I'd shell out an additional $150 after talking to a few coworkers that have had them. I'm sold on them and will never go back to anything else. Very comfortable, relatively light considering they are a true steel toe and shank and not a composite material, warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and they stay dry. I have no complaints whatsoever. Excellent warranty/guarantee and they come with free lace replacements for as long as you own the boots. They are a quality boot.

im with red wing too, only boot that lasts me about 1.5 to 2 years and stays water proof the entire time and are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. all other boots last 6 months to maybe a year at the most. and i always have tough toes put on the toe of my steel toe red wings because when i weld while kneeling down i tear holes in the leather on the toes since its rubbing between the steal and concrete

Pretty sure Red Wing recently went to China. I prefer Danner, Chippewa, etc..

Most anything made in the US.

I like this thread! Im always looking for more comfortable boots. Was wearing Wolverines and thought they were good. Back aches lessened, but after about 6 months they were done and my back would start hurting again. Tried on some Georgia boots and Doc Martens. The georgias felt light and decently comfortable. The doc martens were heavy, but VERY comfortable. I bought the docs ($120 I think)! I bought insoles for the wolverines, but they feel too hard now after wearing my docs. I work in the access control/cctv industry primarily in healthcare facilities. My boots don't get exposed to some of the conditions that others put them through. I wanted steel toe and comfort.

Stay away from caterpillars for comfort. My back hurt daily they were so hard!
