You had one job!
+1 on Ariats. I had a pair for 5 years working construction every day and they were great.
I don't know much about cowboy booties but I've been trucking in a pair of Rockies for nearly 3 years and I cut meat in them for a year before that. There was a period last year for a month or two one of them squeeked when I walked and then the rubber part of the heel started coming off. I superglued it back on and they been stompin mud holes in asses ever since without a problem.I personally like Rocky and Redwing.
Redwing doesn't make a combat boot so I chose Rocky for my combat boots. Holds up aswell as my rocky work books. Both brands have lasted 3 yrs+working on a farm every summer.
My husband had a pair of slip on justins, and they also wore out extremely quickly. Also, the ones with the "foam" or whatever it is on the bottom, that **** wears out in certain areas really quickly, you gotta get the actual rubber soles.. He bought a pair of wolverine workboots and they are now officially due to be replaced, almost 2 years old and being worn 90% of the time. Not too bad.Remember my thread I posted over winter about new slip ons? Well I went with the Justins and they were wore out two months later. I'll never buy another pair of justins after how fast they wore out. I'll be going back to another pair of Redwings as soon as I can afford them. Probably come tax time I'll be getting a new pair of redwings.
Wow, that's surprising to hear, only heard good things about White's. I guess everyone's feet are different though, so it makes sense that some brands fit better than others for people.Yeah, when I was working in the oil field, I wore about everything. Nothing was as comfortable, or as durable as Red Wings for me.

Nope they were not steel toe. I think they were the Stampedes or something. They weren't $250 boots or anything. They were like $120. But still, spending over 100 bucks on a pair of boots I want them to last at least a year. Im not overly hard on boots either by any means. I have a buddy who is a foreman for an excavating company, he burns through a NICE pair of boots in about 6 months. There Justin's I had would have last him two weeks MAYBE.
The redwings I had lasted me 5 years with pretty heavy use. A lot heavier than the Justins received anyway.
Have you ever tried a pair of Redwings Zip? They are definitely worth it. They are awesome and extremely comfortable. Thats another thing I didnt like about the Justins, they were not anywhere near as comfortable as my Wings were.
On a side note, I would try a nice pair of Ariat's.

I still wear my Bellevilles, they are the best boots I ever had.
Those look pretty sweet! The lining looks amazing in them. I wonder how much it would be to get a pair shipped to America since I'm due for a pair with winter coming up.
Are you refering to the ones with all the fancy stripes in the corner?So upon googling around trying to find retailers for some of the boots suggested in here, I stumbled across a local store 30 seconds from me that sells the Canada West boot I know and love, that fits me like a glove. Go figure this guy has been in town for 17 years, but has no online presence, until recently when he was put into the online phone book directory or some **** like that. So I scored a pretty pair of Canada West steel toe/shank boots. Lined. SO COMFY!
However, I have given massive reps to all, and have found a LOT of cool boots I never knew about. I will one day own some Whites and some Rockys boots as well. Because boots.
Anyway. Went with these.
i dont know about western style boots but i have some concorns that i use for work and they are awesome. they have composite toes so much better in the winter
