I prefer my Redwings over the Doc's. As others have suggested, be sure to get properly fitted.

I have been wearing steel toe boots since 1990. I have worn the Redwings, Wolvarines, Catapillar, Dr. Martins(junk)....... I bought a pair of Ariat slip on and they are comfortable, Durable and water resistant. Now i have the lace up powerfit PRO Timberland and these are by far the best boot i have worn. I have had them for about 8 months now and they have held up great. These boots get worn. They see acid, oil, hot acid, and allot of dirty . I turn the water on and rinse them before i go to the change house and they have help up better than any other boot i have owned. Try them on and you will see. They are light and you dont have to break them in...

I was wearing the dr martin laceups and after my back injury they were just so heavy I was dragging my feet at the end of the day. I bought a pair of Justin Cowboy Slipon Steel toes at Academy (89-99 bucks) and they are so comfy I wear them everywhere. I was about 2 months in and bought a second pair and put them in the closet. I wore the first pair to work for a year after purchase and the the sole wore down. I wear them as my riding boots now and on the second pair.

they are so comfy 100 bucks a year I dont care. I have a high arch so a lot of slip on boots do not work for me but these have been great. I will just resole these when they wear out.

I prefer the Ariat Workhog for both comfort and durability. I have fairly wide feet and their square toe EE width boot is the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn, no joke.

ok listen up. go on ebay any type in "usmc steel toe boot". those are the best bang for the buck. I've worn those for probly a thousand miles almost 12hrs daily over many many years and never had problems. my exact ones are belleville 550. go to any military outlet store to try the fit first if you want because they run a size bigger.( shouldn't matter since they're not racing boots and you'll be wearing for hours daily, you want extra room trust me) they have holes on the side that vent too.
they're almost indestructible. I still use mine when mowing lawn and doing auto work.

FYI: did you know steel toe boots are designed to clean cut off your toes in the event of load dropping on them, and can be surgically reattached, rather that crush them which will be mushy and have to be amputated. haahah I know it sucks.

Can't go wrong with Wolverines, also look for sole inserts by Dr. Scholls. Works wonders.
