    I tried a bunch of Red Wings and settled on Carolina Grizzly boots. The US-made ones are much better quality (and more comfortable) than the Chinese-made line.

    Congratulations on reviving a 5 year thread and acting as a self-serving shill on your first post.

    Now back on topic, I ordinarily promote USA made but had to purchase boots on spur of the moment. So, to Wal-Mart i went. Bought a pair of Brahma's for less then thirty bucks. (sounds bad already)

    Not only were they comfortable right out of the box but had plenty room in the steel toe area, that was a first for me. Probably one of the lightest pair I've ever worn. This is a high top ankle design, size 14 wide by the way.

    When I worked in a plant i always bought off the shoe truck. Good brands, redwing, iron age, to name a few, $100-$200 a pair. Never found a pair I actually liked, despised most of them. Heavy torture devices to be frank.

    I'm going on a year with them now, light use. Sole seems to wear fairly quick, but I would buy three more pair in a heartbeat. Just my opinion on them and your mileage may vary.

    I used to be a die hard Redwing fan. I now won’t buy anything but Thorogood. These are my favorite.

    i broke my leg and when doctor was looking at xray pointed out i have bone spurs. thats extra bone sticking out in spots on bottom of feet. if you got bone spurs only thing helps is the insole cushion things. other wise the problems you blame on shoes are really your feet itself and the bone spurs

    One word of caution. Red Wing has been forced offshore to meet the cost demands, so all of their boots are not made in the U.S.A. anymore. They do mark them good, so you should check if that is important to you. I know it is for me and I would only buy boots made in the U.S.A. It's really getting hard to buy work clothes made in America, but Red Wing is one of the last to do so.
    My last set of Red Wings, made offshore, fell apart between the sole and the upper. I had to go back to the previous pair which was in better shape. After 35 years of wearing them I find that they are no longer worth the money.
