I've been wearing Keens for the last year. Most comfortable I've ever had, and they make them in 15's with wide sizes.
KEEN made in USA

I wear these

http://www.redwingshoes.com/red-wing...nch-boot-brown

They are basically my only pair of shoes....i wear them all day, every day, work, play, you name it...that's what is on my feet....i usually get about a year out of them before they are worn out and uncomfortable.

I am due for a new pair and have thought about trying something new but not sure what.

Carolinas are great. Id get almost a year out of them, while the other boots off the truck (all expensive) didn't last as long.

I've had a few pair of carolinas. The last time I bought some I got the last pair they had in the store (made in usa) and ordered up a second pair (chinese SHIT). I had already paid for them in order to get them ordered.
The ones that were made here broke in nicely, were comfortable and lasted quite a while. The imported P.O.S.'s never felt quite right. The soles were hard not to mention slippery as hell when wet. Those F'ing things tried to kill me numerous times I swear.
Both pairs are now wore out and I need a new pair (or two) and am searching myself. A trip to the shoe store is in my near future

I've been happy enough with my CAT steel toes, but they're wearing really quick. The inside is falling apart after about a year. Wouldn't recommend them.

The longest lasting shoe ive ever worn were the old sears die hard work shoes. That was on an abrasive concrete shop floor that was often oil soaked. I don't even know if they make them like that anymore.

The two USA made boots that I've worn we're a red wing boot and a danner. Both were nicely made and tough, but neither were comfortable, both too tight in the toe. I stopped wearing them before they wore out.

Now I'm back to the old CAT boots that I've always wore, and a chinese danner. The CATs are pretty tough for regular daily use, and comfortable with a replacement insole. The danners are light and comfortable, but wouldn't last for shit in any real working conditions.

I've had mine for over a year and a half, while other boots don't even last close to a year.

I have had these for 6 months. They are the most comfortable out of the box I have ever worn. Holding up great but the soles are cracking side to side where my foot bends when squatting
My boots see alot of walking and are in all the outdoor elements everyday
Soles dont clean out well
My only bitch is the sole

I have these. http://www.redwingshoes.com/red-wing...nch-boot-brown

I wear them 13 hours a day and walk on concrete shop floors for 8-9 hours a day. They are the most comfortable boots I have ever owned.

I just ordered a pair of the Georgia boots. They have a bunch of closeout stuff and free shipping. Plus I found a coupon code for 20% off. $114 boots for $49 delivered. Hopefully I like them.
