I recommend the Red Wing Model 2233 8” work boot. I purchased a pair twenty years ago. They used to carry them is the stores. Now they are special order, I found that out when I tried to buy another pair. The newer pair gets most of the use now. I still have the first pair that I wear around the house when there is rough dirt work that needs to be done. The steel toe has more than paid for itself over the years.

Another vote to check out Red Wing. The last pair of work boots I had from there were the most comfortable I've ever had and they lasted 5 years. My cowboy boots are from there and are 19 years old. Still comfortable although they need to be resoled.

This!

Thorogoods beat everything you listed, and anything others have suggested, IMHO. Super comfortable, and 100 percent made in the USA, even the laces.
I donít care for the inserts that come in them, but thatís easily replaced.

Yeah I think Iím going to go with a pair of Thorogoods. Seems every brand is going to that off-white sole that I wasnít too fond of but itís growing on me. The maxwear sole seems to get great reviews.

I had a pair of Red Wings with a Vibram sole last for 25 years. I probably walked at least 2000 miles in them.

Certain styles of Danner are also American made. I've had 4 different pair of Danners, 3 American made and one foreign made. The American made ones were extremely comfortable and lasted years. The foreign ones lasted 5 months before they were worn out.

I've also had 2 different pairs of Thorogoods. I don't think you can go wrong with either brand.

If you spend any amount of time in the dirt or mud, those white soles will turn tan.

I tried to buy some Redwing fire boots. Their retail stores are useless. I didn't know which size/width I would need so I asked them to order in the two closest sizes in both widths. The store manager started ringing up $1200 worth of boots and told me that the only way to get them to the store would be to pay for them and return the ones I don't need. Oh, and there is a 25% re-stocking fee for the ones I would return.....

Redwing is nothing but a name at this point.
