    Re: Wishing I had nicer boots today

    +3 for Keen boots. I just got my employer to allow me to wear Keen vs. the Bates brand of our required uniform. Better arch support and more comfortable. I've found the great in wet and cold conditions. At 55 my dogs are tired from all the asphalt and concrete surfaces I've stood on for 35 years.

    I'm a big fan of Keen Shoes and Boots. I wear a pair of Keen Leather, Steel Toed Boots when in the field at work and I love them. They are waterproof as well. I remember when I bought them I was really dreading breaking them in but there was no break-in period at all.
    Good luck with your search.

    Re: Wishing I had nicer boots today

    I wear Georgia Boot Romeos in the shop and working around the yard. I got them because my masonry contractor always wore them, saying they are easy on and off and shed everything that hits them. I put them on going into or through the basement shop and take them off on returning to the finished area of the house. I wouldn't recommend them for a field boot.

    Raymond, try www.wideshoes.com. Your feet are a little wider than my 4e but my feet are very thick so only certain shoes work and Hitchcock shoes has a lot of options. Bunions probably don't help any nor does arthritis. I'm still looking for something warm, waterproof and lightweight.

    There is a lot to digest here, but I thank you all for your opinions. To me it sounds like the respondents to this thread favor Keen. I’ll have to look into those a little more.
