I just got those same boots, still breaking them in but they handled an 8 mile hard hike with minimal issues (rubbed my right ankle raw, but they were brand new) overall fairly comfy.

My lacross steel toes have done great work for me over the past few years, super comfortable, but also about 200 dollars. Look at the boots guys working construction wear, thats one of their most important pieces of equipment and only the dumb guys buy ****ty boots trying to get by with something cheap.

I picked them up from an Army surplus store in Seattle. I refuse to buy shoes online since every manufacturer is different. Check surplus stores in your area, I bet they will have them.

Can't go wrong with Red Wing boots. I put about 650 miles on mine working at Home Depot. They have been extremely comfortable and wouldn't think of wearing anything else. They are extremely durable as well.

They can also professionally fit you for boots in the store. They special ordered mine in the exact size and width I needed and I'm happy every time I lace them up.

either way, it becomes more and more clear that you spent too much time in southern california due to your knowledge of the specifics of the majority of its cities. that and your haircut.

carry on though, i understand that you don't miss it.

Im a pretty big fan of Merrell's. Kind of like a hiking shoe, but you can hike or run in them. Vibram sole and made out of optional goretex.

I missed you.

OP, I've had a pair of those, and though they looked cool, and the zipper made for quick entry and exit, I really didn't like how they lasted. IIRC, it was less than a year of daily wear.
I've had great success with Red Wings Worx if you're looking for safety toed slip on boots.

If you really want a good pair that will last, try These guys
Custom made in the USA and will meet any safety specs out there. When they finally do get worn down, they can be rebuilt for half the cost.
