Another vote for Danner -- I've got two pair of the 10 inch "Fort Lewis" boots and worn em since 1980.  They will outlast me.  If anyone is heading to Portland Oregon, Danner has an outlet store with extremely excellent prices (50-60 percent savings) -- just sayin.

 

Oh, and whoever said to "get out the brush" to shine up a pair of boots has never seen a highly shined pair -- get out the freakin cotton balls!

I have 2 sets of go to work boots I am impressed with. I have been on the fence about getting a pair of White's because I too am not used to/not sure if I like the high heel. I traverse raw land every day, no trails, forest/swamps/fields/2:1 slopes/etc. with 2 hands and a back full of gear.

 

So here is what I have right now, they have served me very well but the merrells I knew getting into them might be a 1 year boot if that.

 

This is my day to day go-to footwear, I was skeptical because they are lightweight and comfy but they have worked out very well so far 6 months in.

For the deep shit, downpours, swamps, mud I've not found a better boot than "Muckboots". They aren't your typical rubber fireman's boots, they breath (sort of) and don't give you blisters. They also hug your foot. The downside is summer weather, they do get a little warm.

I DO need some suggestions about permanent boots though. Danner is out, they're 90% chinese garbage now. White's...idk, I've heard great things but that heel. I want a custom made for each foot pair, under $600

I'm on my 5th set of rocky jump boots. Worn them since Jr. High. You can have them resoled, but at the price point, why?

Picked up a new pair of Danner Desert Acadia's a few years back on Ebay for $30 brand new. Great boots and still can't believe I got them for that price:

Also recently picked up a pair of Bates Desert Hikers. Like them but still haven't got them completely broken in:

For colder weather I wear the old intermediate combat boot:

And a pair of fleece lined East German pilot boots:

Those are toasty warm but only good if it's cold and dry. I've got many other different pairs but the ones pictured are in the main rotation right now...

Another fan of Danner Ft. Lewis . Steel toe.

Best boots I've ever used. Most comfortable and longest lasting. And made in the good old USA.

Some Danners are made in china now and they are junk.

Yes some Danner boots are made in China. They will state what ones on their website. I only buy boots that are made here. I just dont give a fuck for boots that are made by chinese sweatshops with shitty materials.

I'm really happy with my 5.11s...They were hell for a week and a half until I broke them in and then insanely comfortable/durable after that.  I've had them for over a year now, wear them to work every day.  Granted, I'm not doing heavy labor.  They have a few varieties, I got the 'Storm' (waterproof and blood borne pathogen resistant, I guess for the EMTs).

I obtained a pair of New Balance tan boots which appear to be well made and are comfortable over my wide feet.  At work I grabbed a mop out of a mop bucket I thought had water in it and dribbled some on my left boot.  Turns out the bucket had a wax/water mixture in it so the drops I though would dry are now as dark as they ever were.

 

Anyone know of the best way to try and clean this up?  I know they'll never look new but I'd like to

minimize the spots.

Our right to keep and bear arms - personally - is the essential element of political liberty, without which we would stand as mere slaves of any current administration, as do most of the people in the world today. We treasure our right to be armed, not only as defense against tyrants, but also as defense against evil men acting alone. Our right to defend ourselves against felons by force of arms protects not only our liberty but also - and this is often overlooked - our dignity. Dignity is a word not often used in the Age  of the Wimp, for by definition a wimp has no dignity.  But dignity remains not only desirable but essential to persons of consequence.  This concept is rejected by the socialist, who feels that dignity resides solely in the state. But we Americans are not socialists (at least most of us are not) and we prize our unique status in world society.

I've never seen basketball boots before. Just teasing.

I'm wearing Itascas right now. A super comfortable hiking boot.

All of my military boots sucked ass.

I'm on an uncovered (no mat, no Linoleum) concrete floor all day so these work well.  I know I'd need something different if I were outdoors or on a rough surface moving around.
