We've all tried a lot of different brands of boots (or most of us have). Some were great and some not so great. I look for comfort, function, and durability when I buy a pair. I've settled on Rocky Boots as my personal favorite. What brand suits you?

All my time in Iraq and Afghanistan made me partial to the Oakley Tactical 6 military duty series. They're a little more pricey than, say, the similar Converse or Belleville, but far more comfortable and just as tough.

Lowa gets my vote hands down for comfort while hiking. Most comfortable hiking boot I've ever had on my extra wide flippers.

Danner is my current Tactical boot so we'll see how those work out.

My wolverines have been through the ringer, and still have plenty of life.

I like Danner RAT boots and my Salomon Quest 4D GTX Fast Light Backpacking boots. Tried a pair of Keen hikers but they didn't have the support I needed, they were OK for around the yard.

Danner is the way to go a little pricey but you get what you pay for. In my 6 years in the Marines I only went through 1 and half pair of boots. The second pair is worn but still in very good condition. They are super comfortable too.

I've never owned a pair of Wolverines or Danner but I hear good things about both. I just went to the Danner site and it does appear that they make some quality stuff (although a bit pricy). I've known at least two dudes who said that Wolverines were the best boots they've ever owned. Even though I've owned three pair of Rocky boots (very satisfied with each pair) I'm thinking about trying the Danner brand next time.

I have a fairly wide foot and that's one reason why I settled on a particular model of the Rocky brand boot. It is generally wider than the average boot and I buy the square toed (steel toe) work boot.

I have a pair of gor tex, merrel boots with a vibram sole, and they have been pretty good.

My vote goes to Merrel.

I've been wearing $30.00 used desert boots with the vent holes and vibram soles. They have a big toe box, that allows may feet to expand. Thick comfy soles protecting feet from rocks. And they keep your feet cool. It seems the surplus is drying up, though. Rockys are good, Danner, and Redwing.
The secret is fit, socks and knowing what your foot likes and needs. I like a slightly lose boot, and a thick semi-stiff sole, because I'm 240 lbs. 300 with a full pack.

I wear Red Wings or Bates.
I use to buy cheap work shoes & my feet bothered me at the end of the day. My Bosses wife told that her son had the same problem. Until he bought good work shoes. I bought a pair of Wolverine shoes and my feet felt better, now I buy
red wing work shoes. I learned to spend money on the shoes I wear everyday.
