    Looking to pickup a comfortable pair of rugged footwear. Currently have a pair of Ecco GTX hiking shoes but are about 5 years old now and almost time for a new pair. What is everyone wearing these days?

    Lets see...I have two pairs of Red Wings...a 6" Hiker and a 9" Work Boot

    ...and my two pair of Western Chief Smoke Jumpers...that I wear more than any other boot or shoe.

    Great for foul weather, hunting, fishing, working...bought my first pair in Washington State back in the 90's...now I buy two pairs at a time, one in reserve. They kick butt !

    I am thinking of picking up a pair of Vasque Breeze Gore-tex Hiking boots. I have heard great things about them. Does anyone have any experience wearing them on here?

    You have to have 5 posts before you are able to pm members. If you would like you can email any of the staff members.

    I know it's a little old thread, but thought I'd respond:

    For work, I have some Danners, some Bellevilles, and some Red Wing 'cowboy' boots. The Bellevilles are the least comfortable of the three, but they're pretty good. I'm surprised how comfortable the Red Wing cowboy boots are.

    My general shoes (we called them tennis shoes where I grew up, though they're not for tennis) are American-made New Balance.

    I hear alot of great things about the Red Wings, havent owned a pair myself. I will have to keep them in mind when i need a new boot agian.
    The Vasque Breeze above i ended up picking up and am pretty impressed so far. I got them mainly for hiking but are extremely comfortable and light enough to wear all the time. I am pretty tough on shoes so we shall see how long they last but i will keep everyone updated.

    I've got a problem with my right foot that requires a very stiff footbed or I go lame. After trying all kinds of boots and shoes, I've settled on Danner.

    Yes, Personally I am big fan of John Deere wellington & steel toe boots. They provide ultimate comfort.
  11. Lacrosse wear like iron!
  12. I have CAT boots with a shotgun flap as you might be able to see in my avatar.
    They are synthetic sued and as such will get mucky but I love that muddy look!
