Hi, I work outside in the field. I wear boots because it's what I think of as work wear, but they aren't very comfortable after long hours and when I go hiking I wear sneakers, which got me to…Continue
"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. "

"If you have actual work to do, and need to protect your feet while still maintaining some modicum of comfort, Red Wing is the go-to boot. Lightweight day hikers may be more comfortable most of the time, but when something heavy lands on your foot,…"
