I have tried various types of work boots over my 26 years of manufacturing work. Started with Carolinas then tried Red Wings, Wolverines & Dura Shock Wolverines, Herman Survivors and now just purchased another pair of Carolinas. All have been steel toe through the years. I truly believe a good quality boot is important for the whole body.

I've been wearing Red Wings for a long time, but I was browsing the Bargain Cave at Cabela's and found a nice pair of Cabela's branded boots that were normally $200 for $50 so that's what I'm wearing now and I really like them. When it's time to replace them I'll probably get another pair of Red Wings.

Iíve tried many over the years but my favorites are Justin J-Max comfort system or USA made Red Wings. My next pair will be Red Wing due to availability.

Red Wing 8 or 9 inchers. Just wore out my third pair - I get about 2 years per pair, got over 2 1/2 out of the last pair partly because they're the first pair I oiled periodically.

Georgia has been my go to for the last twenty years. I am trying a pair of Dura Shock Wolverines right now and they are alright. I will probably go back to Georgia though.

Redwing slip ons are my favorite.

Every year I get a new pair.
