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.

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.

Also, check out Blundstone.

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.
