Growing into your quirks or I got weird.

"Actually these days combat boots are getting pretty decent; Vibram has made some gear that, although I was originally issued for work, I now where out and about. Probably not the most fashionable choice, but they are multifunctional. "

"i really like rigger boots too. but a lot of sites specifically ban them which sucks. I mostly just wear mine to drive to work and when it snows. "

"I spend about 14 hours a day in a pair of Georgia Giants, but boots may not be your thing. If you wear shoes for hiking, Merrell makes work shoes with hard toes."

"Yes.   Make certain your toes have enough room.  Wolverine's 8" lace on fits me perfectly.  Steel toe or not, your toes shouldn't be squished into the end.   If you have a wide toe, Justin even has a square toed…"
