Need to get steel toe boots or sneakers for work and was wondering what is a good brand that is not too awful expensive. Something that I could get local would be better. Can't try on mail order Thanks

i've gone through a few pairs of skechers steel toe boots... they last a long time, but they aren't the slightest bit comfortable.

now i'm on my first pair of timberlands. the ones i got were $79, and they're exremely comfortable. they seem to be holding up pretty well so far too.

My Doc Martin steel-toes were $130 and it's the best money I've ever spent on footwear.

I find the Skecthers to be comfortable,better than the boots i was wearing.

Red wings.

Not cheap, but definately a good price for what you get.

I have a pair that is going on 12+ years old now. They're covered in paint, the leather is worn from never being conditioned, but the shoes are still really comfortable.

+1 What are your feet worth to you? I am in my Red Wings 12 -14 hours a day. At the end of the day my feet are tired, But they don't hurt.

I have tried other boots but my feet would actually hurt at the end of the day.

+1 on the redwings. Bought a pair to roughneck in and love them. Don't work on a drilling rig anymore but still wear the boots. They are comfortable and durable. worth every penny.

Bates Enforcers at Academy for around $70. They are tennis shoe light even with the steel toe and with the side zips easy to get off and on. Go to www.stompers.com and look around. I got a pair of Chippewa engineer boots for $135 shipped.

I work 12 hours shifts and I wear Redwings. Mine go on a boot dryer every night so they last a long time. The style I buy have a soft sole that still gets excellent wear and good traction on wet surfaces. Let's see, $150 vs $75 = $75. 40 hours per week X 50 weeks = 2000 hours. $75 divided by 200 hours = less that 4 cents per hour. For 4 cents per hour I'll pay for the extra quality and comfort.
