Boots! Whatcha got on yer feet?

Lets see your shit kickers! :loll

I just ponied up and bit the bullet on these. Couldn't find anything else that was insulated with a composite toe as well as made in the US. I figure its a smoking deal if I get 7 winters out of them.

Lowa has changed them, not what they used to be. No rubber toe cap, just not the same...

9" Chippewa shearling-lined arctic workboots, 13E. Love 'em.

Just have to be careful not to step on anybody's toes, is all.

Cheap pairs also help build up them natural soles, a.k.a. calluses.

If you can find them old school timberlands are good. These are about 7 years old I throw them on very day.

I do a little volunteer work firing steam trains, I've yet to get more than a year (about 40 days work) out of a pair of boots, so I just get cheap ones
