I have a pair of Justin's that I bought to work around the farm and since we are "required" to wear steel toes at work (company pays the first $100) I went last week and bought a pair of Tony Llamas. Cowboy style boot but has steel toe and are very comfortable.........from Day ONE!  Even after the company paid the first $100, it still cost me another $100 but now I dont have to change shoes before going to the farm.  I used to wear sneakers at work and change before going to the farm.....lol

These are the boots that just gave up the ghost. I would have bought  another pair but shipping takes 2 weeks and I needed boots sooner! I can't do laces yet so options are limited. I found many of the offshore boots I tried on in stores poor fit.

Those look nice. Up here you'd have to put a 1 in front of that price!

I was a Caterpillar Indiana FX guy and the last two pairs I had lasted well over 6 years each. So, I was quite impressed. The new set I currently have on are Danner Quarry's. I figured I would give them a try and see how they are. So far, I was surprised how fast they broke in and how well they are made. Back note, I highly recommend the Cats, if you can find that model.

Best pair of boots I have ever owned were a pair of those green Dunlop purofort safety toe boots. My dad has gone through one pair in probably 5 or 6 years. They are so comfortable I would wear them to school if I were allowed to. I have had 2 pairs of them. First pair was hand me downs from my step mom. Outgrew them. Second pair is dads old pair. Still fit but come spring they will be no good. Steel plate in the sole of the boot is causing the sole to separate from the rest. But that's from 6 years hard heavy use and abuse on the farm.

I've only ever had 3 problems with these boots.

1. The treads hold lots of cow caca and straw. Boss hates these boots because of that
2. The sole starts to separate due to a steel plate in the sole. This makes the boot leak after 6 years of continuous torture.
3. These boots and ice do not agree... I have had issue with slipping on ice. I ended up breaking my thumb at a friends house one time. Ran on ice... Sister got a good laugh out of watching me go arse over tea kettle.image.jpg

Over the weekend I went to the local field and stream to fondle some guns and they had a clearance rack of boots, I got a pair of $150 wolverine's for $60. They made my feet hurt bad the first day but since then they've been nice and comfy, there waterproof with a composite toe.

I've been wearing L.L. Bean Cresta hikers for years now, very tough boot and their customer service is 2nd to none. I wore a hole in the gore- Tex after 4 years, sent them back and pay the slight difference in price from when I purchased them and they send a new pair!
