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. "
"It really depends on what kind of boots you like to wear. Remember that leather boots rarely feel fantastic right out of the box, they usually have to be worked in over the course of a week or two of hard wearing. Then they form around…"
"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,…"

"I have worn boots daily for most of my adult life, most often the work style boot you are discussing here, my preference is Justin Boots but I like Redwing and Ariat boots as well. During the winter I tend to wear lace ups and summer months the…"
"That man definitely does not speak for the greater MKP community, which welcomes young men (and sometimes has discussions about how to recruit more of them). He may have spoken for his own "I-group" (a small group of 8-12 or so…"
"Insurance is a small portion of the problem as a whole - a portion of which was actually formed by market forces.
Insurance, in and of itself, has one purpose; to create access to healthcare. Full stop.
