    Work Boots

    I have been thinking about getting a new pair of work boots, preferably non-steel toe though I could buy steel toes if need be. I was thinking about a pull on boot with good traction, maybe something in the line of a Wellington type boot. I don't want to spend a lot, but would like a comfortable, durable boot for a good price. I tried on a couple from TSC, both C.E. Schmidt brands. One C.E. Schmidt® Men's 10 in. Soft Toe Wellington Work Boot - Tractor Supply Online Store was about $80, but how the top is stitched to the lower section it created a seam that was almost impossible to get my foot through it to get it on. The other one, C.E. Schmidt® Men's Waterproof Wellington Steel Toe Work Boot, 10 in. H - Tractor Supply Online Store, didn't have such a large inside seam there and I was able to pull it on pretty easy, but the boot felt clumsy and uncomfortable, though that could have been me not being used to this type of boot and needing broken in.

    Any one have any recommendations, suggestions, comments, etc, etc? I really want a pull on boot this time.

    There is actually a Red Wing plant near me in Potosi. I like Red Wings but have always been scared off by their prices.

    I was going to recommend Red Wings but when you said under 80 bucks, I figured they would not work.......

    Another vote for Red Wings. Without a doubt, $80 won't be enough for a pair though. Can you adjust your budget for the difference in quality? I think you'll be challenged to find a decent pair of good work boots for $80.

    The ones I'd recommend are well over $100 a pair. Justin original workboots with double comfort technology. Made in Fort Worth, Texas. The best price I found was at Online Boot Store. Style 4754 Magony Worn Saddle.http://www.onlinebootstore.com/great...ems/J4754.html Free shipping and price guarantee. I still wear round toe boots unlike others who wear square toe. About the only time I'll wear square toes is when riding horses.

    It's hard not to drop at least $100 - $150 for a good pair of work boots. Personally, when it comes to my feet, money is no object. Bad shoes and sore feet translate into sore backs as well. My vote is for Red Wing hands down. They will out last any other boot. Upfront they may cost you a few more bucks, but longer term they save you money because they will out last the other lesser priced boots. If you need to save a few bucks Rocky and Wolverine are decent.

    I have had very good luck with Justin boots as well, mostly the Roper style in both lace-up and pull-on with leather soles. I also have a pair of Ariat Ropers with rubber soles I wear on the motorcycle that have held up very well.

    I have been wearing these Ariat boots for years to work (On my third pair), super comfortable, but not water proof. TSC sells them for $99: Ariat Terrain Boots Distressed Brown 10002182

    I used to wear Red Wings, but no more 14EEEE. Went to Mason, but the quality went to pot! Now, I wear Carolina Boot In a 6" lace-up or *" "logger". Pull-on's just don't work for me anymore! ~~ Lowell
