Most Comfortable Work Boots?


A buddy of mine who iss not a construction contractor tried to post this question and got denied. Then he askd me, and I'm a wolverine guy. so i thought i would post the question for him since he showed me this cool website.

nice to know this place exists for future discussions.

what is the most comfortable work boot you have ever worn?

I've had some decent luck with Wolverines. I would also like to know what everyone thinks. It seems like all boots that I get fall apart very quick for the amount of money I spend on them.

I have wolverines, they are a steel toe boot and very comfortable. Cost me 149.99, but after a week of break in, they are still very comfortable. Had them close to a year...so can't talk about durability yet.

Re: Most Comfortable Work Boots?


i use to wear dakota's from marks work wear house all the time, but i started finding they were beginning to make the soles too thick which made em feel like platform shoes or kiss boots.... not good for balance on roofs and such. not to mention the last two pairs i had wore out in 6 months

my latest pair are cofra's, their carbon fibre so no steel in em. super lightweight, and feel like a true sneaker almost for flexibility and walking around in awkward spots. ill be buying another pair soon when their worn out

i like the look of wolverines but they dont fit my feet. i have a flipper foot so their too narrow. atleast the ones available here

as for redwings, a buddy bought a pair and they fell apart after a month, heard the same thing from someone else so i avoid em

Vasque sundowner the most comfortable boot ever. When broken in they are like sneakers.

They are gore-Tex hiking boots hands down the best by far. However they are pricey.

Just bought a pair of Red Wing Worx two days ago. Not even broke in yet and they are light years ahead of anything else I've tried.

Re: Most Comfortable Work Boots?


I've been wearing Wolverines for 20 years. I always get 6" boots with the wedge heal. I used to get the Durashocks with the plain tow, but a number of years back I switched over to the moc-toe.

I was just thinking of getting a new pair. The ones I h ave now I've had for a few years and they've lasted a long time, but it's time for some new ones. I found them online at workingperson dot com for about $20 cheaper than everywhere else, plus free shipping.

Anyone ever try Thorogood Boots? They're made in the USA.

Wolverines. First job many moons ago, went to buy some steel toes,,,tried on every different brand and style, went with the most comfortable -Wolverine. The last boot purchase thought I'd try again to go with looks - but comfort again won out - and have another pair of Wolverines (Buccaneer, Multi-Shox/Electrical Hazard/Steel Toe/Contour Welt/Water Proof)

Here, I made it easier for all.

MOST COMFORTABLE WORK BOOTS top reviews. 5 star and above. I never buy anything online without reading the reviews. Thought the last item I purchased online ended up not working. It was over $60, spent a half day researching it.
