Gosh, it all depends on what your needs are.

I need:
1. Comfortable footbed.
2. Good ventilation.
3. Safety toe (not necessarily steel).
4. Non-scuffing.

I really like these Red Wings
Red Wing 6338

But it really depends on if you're outdoors/indoors, hot/cold, etc.

Ariat Workhog steel toe boots most of the time. They don't feel "comfy" when you put them on but after a day of field or shop work my feet don't hurt. I have more "comfy" boots but my feet are sore at the end of the day.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

I would rather wear these than any other shoe or boot.
They are that comfortable.
They are not cheap, in fact way to much and way more than the two pair I have cost me.
I have had both pairs resoled by Redwing at least 3 times.
Your Redwing dealer can send them in for you.
That cost has also increased from a reasonable $65 to almost $90.

FYI, these help a lot. Get the black ones, they work better.

Red Wing slip on safety shoes (all black in color) very comfortable and no laces to tie.

Every year I get these cause they are composite toe (not steel) and sooooo comfortable. I don't know the model number.

Timberland Pro lace ups or Doc Martens wellingtons are what I have found the most comfortable for me. I have both currently but am partial to the Timberlands. Either of these paired with Under Armour crew socks has eliminated any foot fatigue or soreness for me.

I wear 8" work boots and was a Red Wing customer for over 20 years. However, their boots would keep wearing out in the same places quicker than I expected (sole would separate from boot in the toe, and the heel rubber would peel away).

In March I switched to Ariat Workhogs and so far I have been very pleased. To me they are more comfortable than the Red Wings and after 6-months of moderate use the soles show almost no wear. I coated the toes with KG's Boot Guard and that is an amazing product as well.

Both good options, found both very comfortable.

I wear steel toe with metatarsal guard, but it's not by choice. Company policy says we must wear them. If I had a choice, I would definitely choose something lighter because these things are heavy and make for some tired feet/legs after a long shift on concrete floors.
