I wear Blundstone, laughing side boots all the time for work. The
current pair I've had for 4 or five years and they haven't been treated
kind. ;) Wear em shooting, gardening, and of course down the shed.
If memory serves me correct (It Rarely does:)) they cost about $75.00.
RM Williams are my "Sunday Go To Meeting" boots and I've had those for
10 yrs or more, laughing sides with a leather sole. A bit of Dubbin
every now and then and they never want to wear out.
Both brands are old Aussie Co's and are ....

Have a good one
I wear "White's" Smoke Jumpers (The "Lace to Toe" style).
I wear them firefighting, Backpacking, and, in general, constantly!

impressed me. Bought them at Payless shoe store for about 40
Looks a little truncated, but I get the idea. I've got Wolverine
steel toes, and they work great for me working 10 hour shifts on
concrete floors 5-6 days a week. They're comfy, and tough as nails.
The spray-on toe stuff (similar to the lining in truck beds) is useful
if you're in an area where they're likely to get beat up a bit but
it's not exactly pretty- most places that sell them will apply it for
you at the time of purchase for ten bucks or so. I think I paid $150
for them, but there are different styles- highly recommended in any
