    Considering buying another set of work boots---have a pair of "Redwings" now. Considering "Durashocks"??
    Its between those two brands. I've tried all the others and am not interested in going with anything else. So if your buying ---what is it REDWINGS or DURASHOCKS????

    Neither. Timberland Pro, titanium toe, waterproof, electrical safety hazard to 600 volts, and as light as a pair of tennis shoes.

    RW hightops... steeltoe is your option or not. What ever you buy, please don't buy cheap or you may pay the price somewhere else.

    Wore Redwings for over 20 years but would take them down to a shoe repair shop and have leather caps sewn over the toes being thats what I wear out fast working on furnaces. Cant do that anymore being about 8 yaers ago they started making the redwings differant so you could not sew the caps on. Tried glueing them on that didnt work. Last 5- years I have staerted wearing Vasque hiking boots....more of waffle stomper boot like I wore in high schooln now the ones I had in high school lasted me about 6- years ( all leather ) the ones I have now are not as heavy of leather but have held up well. I loved my Redwings but I just dont think they are built as well as they use to be.
