A good pair of Rockys should do (not cheap ones) I've had my pair for over 3 years. I do have a big guoge(how do you spell that lol)in them but its better than having a guoge in ur foot (good thing the blade didnt cut that far)

I use either Danner or Rockies. Currently I have 2 sets of Rockies. A set of 4 inch uppers and 8 inch uppers. I have them over 3 years now and they are still going strong. They are both steel toe, water proof and insulated. I work in the electric utility business so they are exposed to all temps and enviorenments. They are dedfinatly worth the money.

On another note, I DO NOT recommend teh Work Ones anymore, they had a problem with odors and such. My Lacrosse boots now are excellent! They are cheaper than the work ones, more comfortable, better built, and DO NOT STINK!!!

REDBACK! I went with the tactical zip up boot, and will never go back!
They are the only steel toe work boot that does not give me trouble with my back & leg injuries!
That's #1 for a guy standing 9hrs + per day!

I have had these for about 5 years. I'm 6"1 330lbs. 4 of those years were spent as daily work boots as a mechanic every day, using them as off road boots (riding atvs), and still wear them to work every day as an auto appraiser and (still seeing shops and junkyards everyday). The steel toe started showing through last week, soles still look newish not worn down, and they are the most comfortable shoe/boot I own.

I've bought 5 pairs of Dr Marten shoes, boots, sandles over the last 15 or so years, still have every pair and there not torn up yet.

That's what I've always heard, though I have used the slightly less expensive Wescos since 1980 (paid $89 for my first pair). Now Whites line boots are listed at $396 and Wescos are $445. Hope I can get at least a couple more years out of my 2 pairs of rebuilt Wescos, then retire...
