Lace up. I had severe trauma to my left foot & ankle so I wear them for protection and support. I have a pair of steel-toe western pull-on boots that I use if I have to go outside quick, but on rough terrain the lace-ups are better...your feet won't move around as much inside and your legs won't tire out as quick.

I have a pair from WM and those are the ones I use when doing yard work or whatever like that. And the honestly feel better on my feet than my Nike tennis shoes. And the don't hurt my knee (which has had 2 surgeries and looking at a total replacement).

Speaking of working environment. I have put applications in all over the place. Power company. Railroad. Honda plant. But I recently got accepted to take the test to go to work for US Steel as a electrical maintenance tech. This means that I am in the hiring process now.

What about comfort of brands? Do you think one is more comfortable than others?

I have found that just about any boot can be made specifically more comfortable when the two following additons are added.

1) Good socks. Can't be over stated that good socks that don't make your feet soak in your own sweat is a must.

2) Superfeet Inserts. Best damn inserts out there. Find the right style for your kind of foot (arch, walking style-pronate/supponate, etc) slip them into the boots and feel the Ahhhhh!

I wear CAT steel toed boots for my work on heavy equipment. Do not get slip on boots as after a few hours in the wet or when your feet start to sweat you will have a boot that slides on your foot.
As Dillinger said you will be issued boots at a union shop. I spend anywhere between $100 to $150 per pair.
