    Blundstone 990's are my favorite boots. Current pair still fine after 2 years of everyday commercial and rooftop work. They are killer comfortable, steel toe, electrically resistant, non-laced for easy on and off (residential homes), soles last forever. Great for winter wear, keeps my feet warm and dry.
    Worked in the Philippines on a project with a bunch of Aussies and they were laughing at my laced up hot and heavy Red Wings. Tried out what they were wearing and that was 8 years ago. On my third pair.

    Style 990 is what I have wear

    Everyone I have ever turned this boot on to loves them.

    This is the only place I know of one could purchase these, if interested

    So far I second Aussie boots, although not blundstones, I have been using slip on redback boots (great barrier steel toe...actually composite) for over a year.

    Other models of the boot are insulated and great for year round use, like the 990 series.

    Anybody wearing Thorogood boots?

    I am thinking hard about buying some on Tuesday, got a smoking deal made available to me on the 8" plain toe...

    My feet are junk, several broken bones over the years and some arthritis going on. I have been wearing Justin work boots for over a decade, but looking for a change because the sole on the new boot is too soft for my taste. I walk five or six miles a day, so comfort and support is paramount, I also weigh about 240# and am 6'6".


    I will NOT buy a boot not made here... (U.S of A).

    If a day goes by and you have learned nothing, I hope you got a lot of sleep.

    Me and my buddy that rides to work are. I wear the American Heritage wedge and he has just the regular American Heritage work model. I suggest having them stretch them for you after you buy them also. I'm horribly hard on them and they have withstood everything I have done to them very well. Really like the wedge when on a ladder for a long time.

    I just ordered two pairs of Thorogood 804-4200. 6" moc steel toe from amazon. Free shipping and free/paid returns. I ordered the d and ee size to see how there widths run. Will return one pair. For the price of $140 they are hard to beat for made in america. These will be replacing a pair of usa matterhorn 1949s that have lasted for many years. I went to academy sports afew weeks ago shopping for boots and saw every boot I tried on was made in china. Walked right out the door! Lol

    Love my Chippewa loggers. Heavy and expensive but my feet stay warm
    And dry and I never slip walking through snow or ice and mud.

    Got a box of shubee slip covers for
    Carpeted customers houses.
