What's funny too is that when you buy a good pair of boots and wear them daily you can go 10 years before you need another pair and by that time a gazillion things have changed. I thought I would walk in and just buy another pair of Justins and ended up leaving more confused than ever. All of the ones I tried on I liked.
Piece of advice I learned in the military. If you find a pair of shoes or boots you really like. By a second pair or even a third. Saved me many headaches when it came to running shoes.

My favorite are the Muck boots... The Chore ones for spring, fall and mild winter and the Arctic Sport for below freezing and snow

Stay away from double h I Walked through a pair in 3 months at work. I ended up going with Justin's because the deal was the best at tractor supply that day but I have always had good luck with Georgia, thorogood and justins. I've learnt that with boots it's easy to go over board but you pay for quality. I have tried going cheap and always ended up spending more on a goodpair later. I'm on and off job sites all day and on my feet most of the day, the new Justin's haven't let me down.

Good timing on this thread. I just found out yesterday that come Jan 1, all personnel at our facility are required to wear steel toes. My number one concern is comfort. My boney-assed feet can't take walking around in bricks. I don't necessarily need boots but any recommendations would be appreciated.

The Wolverine Durashock are great boots - actually own a pair now. Found the Carolina's gave a more planted feel if you were walking over uneven surfaces and likely to turn an ankle , but when I needed a pair of boots " Now " I've walked into Tractor Supply and bought a pair - they are comfy , wear well and always available.

OReely - My machine shop working steel toe requiring bud's wear a mix of boots and work shoe's. There are steel / composite toe "tennis shoe " looking work shoe's that they say are comfortable and much lighter than boots - the lightness makes a difference at the end of the day.

I've always like Wolverine boots, I've also had great luck with Rocky

I've had 2 pair of red wings and hated both.

Really liked ga boots, kept a pair of their slip on in steel toe and regular but a few years ago they changed the design and I haven't been able to find the pair I like. But always thought they were a good quality, comfortable boot, at a decent price point.

Currently on a pair of ariats, they're stable and comfortable but heaaavyy.

Russel Moccassin Company makes the best boots I've ever worn, but they're pricey and not great if you're really working.

Thanks. I saw some composite toe shoes on the Rocky site. I'll look into those.

I know a lot of shop guys that swear by the Timberland Pro for more of a lightweight comfort first indoor option.

For steel/composite toe, it's hard to beat Keen

Not necessarily work boots per se, but stay away from under armor. I've had two different versions of their wanna be tactical style and I work in an office environment now. They don't breath well and both styles had the rubber to protection start to peal away within the first couple months. Not even remotely waterproof despite the poor ventilation. Probably get some Rocky's or Bates next.

in my 45 years of construction work as a crane operator I wore many diff pairs ,red wings, sears die hards,hermans,wolverines,ect.
Hands down the most comphy ,well made ,longer lasting, very water resistant out of the box and even more so if you keep them smeared with wet-proof is the Wolverine Durashock. Great support also with a casual boot comfort .Out of the box comfort no break in required. Reasonable priced ,unless your the type that wants to make a fashion statement to the boys at the site...Then I would look at Carhart or Coach.

I'm a Red Wing fan myself. Had good luck with them; warm, waterproof and they come nice & wide for my fat ass foot! I also like the fact that they are Made in ���� USA...at least the ones I buy are, though not all are.
They are very pricey, and for that reason, I would try another brand that are made here. Any suggestions?
