Work Boots

Any of y'all have some good steel toe work boot recomendations?

I've been working in a refinery for over 13 years and I still havn't picked out a boot I really like.

I personally think thorogood boots are pretty comfortable. They run narrow so make sure to get a wider size. Both my station boots and fire boots are that brand.

I mean I guess it all depends on what you wanna spend. My favorite pair that I got from my dad finally couldn't take it anymore so I had to find a pair. I ended up getting a pair of carhartt boots on sale from farm and fleet and they're pretty nice but then again I only use them in the winter..

the first link you posted and the ones I posted are the same boot. tac research is made by Belleville. but yes they do squeak occasionally

were you a maintainer because I have those exact winter boots too, they were issued to me

I just got out of my caralina's, they were great and comfy for 2 years. Only con really was that they were pretty heavy, i wieghed the pair on a bathroom scale at 10 pounds. They run a little over a hundred, and last 2 years or so, im wearin walmart boots right now tho till i upgrade to king toe redwings

I tried redwings and they were alright... I'm a fan of Justins though. I've had these boots for going on 3 years and they still serve me good.

Every pair of Red Wings I've had are far more comfortable than any tennis shoe.

I tell the truth. Deal with it.
