    Looking for a new pair of work boots and not sure where to go. Steel/polymer toe would be ideal, but steel is very cold in winter. Looking for boots that are warm and waterproof and can take a beating. Comfort is also important. Any thoughts or ideas would be great! Looking sub $200, but may splurge with good recommendation.

    Thanks in advance

    I personally run a pair of Danners but a lot of my workboot wearing friends and customers swear by White's Boots
    and Redwing Boots.

    I have learned the hard way that for a good pair of work or combat boots, you really do get what you pay for.

    There was a thread about this a while back. I'm partial to Geogia and Red Wing because they are mostly made in America. I had real good luck with them through the years.

    I have a pair of Timberland Pro series boots on right now. They are the most comfortable work boots I've ever owned. I've had em for about a year and they are wearing very well. Normally after a year or so all the leather on my boots would be gone around the toe area. These are still perfect. Very durable.

    They are steel toe but have insulation inside to help keep your feet cool during summer and warm during the winter. I don't even notice the steel toe. They are water proof to an extent. One thing I want to mention is the laces. This is the first pair of boots I've had that I haven't had to replace the laces from getting torn up on the metal grommet things. The soles are non skid/non marking.

    All in all I'm happy with them and think they are great boots for the price. I think they were a little more than $100. I'd definitely buy them again.

    Danner - Since 1932

    ^ These Boots are the best! They are comfortable, Ive have like 4 different boots of them. to low cut, one for hiking, and a pair of hunting boots that I've never worn. I won all of them. I used to work at sportsmans warehouse in the footware department. These are great for the $$$ your looking on investing.

    Redwing. That's all I wear. I have to wear steel toes as well and I do not have a problem with my feet getting cold. And it gets cold here, trust me.

    I've heard great things about redwings, but never bought a pair. Always went the cheap way with whatever I could. That doesn't work...... I need something I can buy locally so I can try on. Never had good luck online with boots, shoes, clothes
