    I find boots last about six months when locating. Expensive or cheap six months. The leather holds up better on the expensive ones but on all of them the sole and heel wears down.

    Anyone try.. White's Boots, Hunting Boots, Pac Boots, Work Boots, Outdoor Clothing ?

    I had a co-worker who swears by them. They were just bought out last year by lacrosse (who own Danner) so I don't know how they are now, but good ole Hippy Tom bought a pair in the mid sixties and he's still wearing them.....kinda

    White's are well built and re-buildable. He sends them in every couple of years to be rebuilt. He sent them in back in September to be completely re-done and it only cost him 25 buck and some shipping.

    I am partial to Rocky Tactical boots. Lightweight, durable, and comfortable. They used to make a medical version which also protected agaist blood born pathogens, but i believe they stopped making them. Currently, I picked up some 5.11 tactical, and I have had to reglue the sole where the glue was thin. I guess that is why they were on clearance!

    No I do not. Too expensive I too would hate to get paint on them. I use to wear bates military boots and retread them once. I treat them and such but with all the water in the ditches dries them out. Then I used my cabella's points to pay for a pair of work boots every year. They are about $100 pair of boots and I get a season of more out of them. There 600grn winter boots and a heavy pair of wool socks get me through most of the winter, unless the temp goes below 28 degrees. Then I go to the old military mickey mouse boots.

    Most of my boots were from Walmart, cost $40, were steel toed and were replaced every six months. I also purchased boots by Caterpillar from Sears which were better but again lasted about six months and cost something like $140.
