They should I wear a 15, they probably will magically only have the most expensive model. I like Georgia and Carolina because they don't cost an arm and a leg. In my experience all boots will break down no matter how much you spend. Try 2bigfeet.com.

Default Boots !!!

HIGHLY recommend Wellco boots... The model I currently wear daily at my work are the T-180 X-4force model. Have worn like iron since I got my first pair back last October... Like them so much I found another pair I'm slowly breaking in (although they need little of that if you get the correct size) when my currents eventually give up the ghost !!

...My only complaint (and this is a small one) is that they do not have an easy in side zipper... and the eyelets on that particular model do not lend themselves to an installed type boot zip...

I skipped a couple of pages, so if these have already been discussed, I apologize. Wolverine MULTISHOX, I don't buy any other make or model of boot, and haven't since the 1st pair I bought 6 or 7 years ago. They are simply the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. they have been comfy from day one and I highly recommend them.

I've looked at Cabela's S.A.W. boots and I may buy a pair of them in the future.

I wear red wings because I work 12+ hrs some times. Second they are one of the few that make a good work boot in a 15. Now red wing has there own insoles too. The red wing sales men will measure your foot so you will be comfortable in your new boots. And they are made in the USA.

Some red wings are USA made, some aren't. I suspects the people that had red wings wear out or come apart have bought the Chinese economy model. Check the tag.

Red Wing Pecos. The non leather ones. I've owned many pair and they last longer than any other on a land rig.

I've had my RedWings for over a year now and still holding up to all the welding!!! The previous two pairs of boots I've owned we're Craftsman and Wolverine. My Craftsman lasted for 3 years and my Wolverines for a 1 1/2.

It was thanks to the Red Wing salesman that I discovered I wore a size 13 boot instead of the size 11's I had been wearing for years.

For a good work boot for me,I look for a lightweight,waterproof,vibram sole,and tough as nails pair of boots.

What I have been buying for my last 3 pairs of work boots in const. has been the Belleville desert boots w/gortex liner and vibram soles,I also put a pair of some brand of gel pads inside for a bit more comfort. For me they're my every day boot and really like them for foot comfort and ruggedness
