On my third pair, however I suggest finding a place to try them on as each fits ever so slightly different, but still enough to make a difference if you are going to be working or walking in them all day, and I'm rough on my footwear!. Mine have saved my feet on multiple occasions both on the road and at work. Pro; no laces, soles last forever and are non slip. Con; it's a slip on boot therefore ankle support is lower to moderate. I usually get 2-3 yrs without resoles.
I love my wolverine steel toes. I have a couple different styles now. With the laces, I just tuck them into the boot and I always wear at least blue jeans. I also have the the brown version of the wellington. The only problem I have with them is that eventually my socks will fall down below the top of the boot and ill have brown lines rubbed into my legs.

If you ever feel too hot and wished you'd worn shorts, go ahead. Jeans offer no more protection..

LMAO!!!!!!

I thought i was the only one who that happened to... HAHAHA!!!!! I usually wear low cut socks and they slide right down. Full size socks (mid calf) do fine but the ankle socks or low cut socks slide down on me too.

I just received a pair of Danner Flashpoint 2 boots yesterday and they look to be a very sturdy boot.
I found a great deal on them through Sierratradingpost.com – a $350 boot for $117 + shipping. Here’s the info –
• Fire-, puncture- and water-resistant 8 oz. leather upper
• Handcrafted stitchdown construction for a wider platform
• Nomex fire-resistant triple stitching for durability
• Gusseted tongue keeps out dirt and debris
• Steel shank for support
• Oil- and abrasion-resistant Vibram® 360 Fire Logger lugged rubber outsole provides substantial edging and superior traction
• Includes removable leather kilties to protect tongue from lace abrasion
• NFPA 1977; 2011 edition certified for wildland fire fighting protective footwear
• Made in United States of America

I wear these too, but mine are the composite toe version, which are nice and light and pass the metal detectors at work. Waterproof too.

Dedicated riding boots for me. Even to the corner. Ankle reconstructive surgery keeps you off the bike for a long time. People call you Chester for the rest of your life.

Didn't know there was a Chester! Only knew of a Festus - and that is a very fuzzy memory -kind of young a the time.
