I've tried a handful of slip-on style boots over the years, and had the best luck with CE Schmidt boots from TSC. They were pretty comfortable, water tight, and cheap at that. Currently wear 6" lace up Keen Logandale. I've had a few different pairs of Keens recently and they are nice boots, but only get about 1 year out of them.

Here’s what I am looking at Photo

I walk 20 to 30k steps a day on concrete/asphalt. I wear Keens. Since I crawl around under aircraft the total toe support is a real shoe saver. The Merrils are nice but the toes drag/come loose pretty quick. The Keens hold up pretty well to fuel and other chemicals. Of course, nothing stands up to skydrol.

I work with guys that wear cowboy style boots. I guess it depends on if you prefer style or function.

I’ve looked at the keens but their not for what I need
We do hardscape and landscape and construction so I need a leather boot with some shin protection

Surprisingly, these are Wolverine.
I'm in water quite a bit, and average 7 miles a day.

They don't have a cowboy heel, but with the walking and climbing around I do, that's a good thing.

I don't have 6 months on these yet, probably 4, but so far for a waterproof I'm happy. Cheap too.

Copied that. Just telling you my latest experience.

Wolverines are sketch. You can get a dud.
I've gotten some I couldn't wear, same size, style, etc.
They just sucked. But then bam, this works!

I get a pair every 6 months through work. Some last over a year, some suck.

That’s true!!
Some pairs suck
I’ve had a pair of these Justin’s in the past but it’s been a while so I think I’ll go for it unless someone convinced me that there are a better boot for the price

Tony Llama put one out for a while that was comfortable, but fell apart. Typical Chinese crap.

I'm guessing Wolverine is Chinese crap too, but these are working now.

If you need a 2-3 year boot. Redwings may be your choice. They take a month to break in though.

I love my Keen sandals but my boots are now my favorite shoe even in the summer. I look funny with shorts and slip on boots but who cares.

I wear Thorogood boots, I'll recommend the wedge sole. Very good for working on concrete all day. I don't like slip ons because they rub my legs raw!

Not since he let his pecker hang out the leg of his shorts, and he left with the girl.

I just go with my daughter now.

Well I decided on the boots I posted above
Thanks for the help, but I needed a full leather boot
I’ll grab a pair of the wolverines some day and check them out

Go Twisted X and don't think about anything else, I drag mine into and out of oil, grease, paraffin, walking 5-6 miles a day on the jobsite and never bat an eye. I got the Distressed Hiker the last pair and they are like wearing sneakers if you are wanting comfort. RedWings are shit, Wolverines will blow the soles out of them. I keep 3 pair of Twisted X in my truck depending on conditions. 2 I swap back and forth for everyday comfort and the other is a water proof version.

Well I'm on my 2nd pair of these Justin Commander XS boots. They are comfortable, steel toe, electrical hazard and waterproof. So many to choose from and before I bought this 2nd pair I literally tried on nearly every brand of boot equal to it and again was my choice. Photo

Throw my hat in the ring for Ariat boots. Just bought a pair and they were super comfortable right off the bat. I did wear a pair of justins while I worked construction for about 5 years and never had to replace them so I can't complain about their quality.

5/28/2019 11:41 AM

Ariat here. Duratred soles only. Any boot with leather on the bottom aint no work boot.

Worth the money if your hard on boots. My last pair was just 300 and 4 years later they are still in great shape and extremely comfortable.

As a working man, I still believe in the, all a man needs is a good pair of boots and a good belt.
