I just bought some Schmidt's from Tractor Supply. On sale for $50, usually $100.

They are pretty comfy and seem to be holding up rather well.

I like my Danners and my U.S. made Red Wings.

Danner or high end Wolverine with an added insole. I really like the soft leather of those higher priced Wolverines, very flexible and no break-in time needed. I have a pair of 04795s, I'm sure they make a non safety toe version. Found a dealer on Ebay that had the best price I could find on the web at the time.

This place has the best price I've seen recently on Wolverines.

Depends on what work you're doing.

This.

I've had Red Wing (Irish Setters) and they did last quite a long time considering the abuse I put them through.
I tried the Wolverine Multishox after that and, although they don't last as long, they are a great boot for the price and the most comfortable boot I've ever had.
They are more comfortable than my regular boots.

This. I had a pair of higher end Wolverines that were the most comfortable boot I've ever owned. After a while they were like wearing slippers. The soles are a little too soft though, I wore through them in about a year.

Most comfortable for me is Timberlands. I wear the timberland pro's with the waterproof membrane, fit my feet like a glove.

Danner

I like my danners, but the waterproofing seems to have taken a QC nosedive on this last pair I got.

I have used Red Wings of various sorts for 50 years. Model 595 is most durable/comfortable I have used.

I love my Danner Acadias

I'm waiting on delivery of a pair of Timberlands to replace my U.S. made RedWings that I have worn for the past 23 years.

Red wings are probably the most comfortable and will last the longest, I have had a set for nearly 5 years now, and still in great shape, my $200 timberlands lasted a grand total of 6 months before the sole broke in half, called Timberland they told me it was wear and tear and I needed to buy another $200 pair of boots, I pretty much told them to fuck off and bought a set of Red WIngs.

I scoffed at the price of White's boots, until I bought my first pair.

Current workbooks are Wolverines, couldn't be more pleased with them.

Next pair will be Wolverine, maybe Danner

About my experience. I typically burn through a pair of boots (literally) in about three to four months. I didn't want to waste money on Danners and never wanted to test their re-soling policy with the conditions I deal with.

For the last three or four years it's been Wolverines.
