Overpriced steel toe insulated high top Redwings.
Last pair. Good boots, but WAY overpriced.
Not sure what the next will be. But they won't be Redwings.

I like Danners for actual boots. They are the only ones that fit well. But this last pair I am wearing have some wierd cracking on the toe box. The rest of the boot looks like new, but the toes are all cracked.

I like Keens for lighter shoe/boots. Same deal. Only ones that are wide enough.

Same here, I like keens because they are nice and wide. I got a wide big foot.

Wore Redwings for years. Had some Carolinas, maybe some called Georgia?. Thorogood were the last and were great.
Now, I've got Wolverine, but not because I chose them. They chose me. Once arthritis sets in, you have to take what feels okay, because not much feels good.
I will say they all held up pretty good.
I always say buy American, when possible. For me, it wasn't possible, but at least I can walk.

Hey builditguy. Wolverine is made in Michigan. I've been wearing them for over 25 years. Like wearing high tops, but more support. Very comfortable.

I wear Redwing Irish Setters. They are 100% waterproof and extremely lightweight.

With that said I rarely wear boots.
