I had a cheap pair of Karrimor trainers that I wore for work, eight hours a day, five days a week for YEARS.  Unbelievable good value and were comfortable from the get-go.  I finally wore the soles paper thin and had to admit they were ready to retire.

They look great.  Glad they fit.  I was happy to order online and receive boots that fit.  Having to return and go through that process was not something I was looking forward to.

Right?
If they hadn't fit, it probably would have taken until July to have fitting shoes in hand. :ahhh (or "on feet", I might say)

I'll have to ease into these.
They absolutely do not allow you to walk with your heel contacting the ground first on each step. 0 padding. I'll have to walk on the balls of my feet.
On the flip side, they fit like gloves and weigh only 250 grams. :D

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

These Dr. Martens brown Chelsea boots have been my go-to boots for the last year.  https://www.drmartens.com/uk/en_gb/p/11853201

Lashings of Urad makes them well nigh 100% waterproof and the famous air-cushion sole makes them very, very comfortable.

Work totally relaxed the dress code so pretty much live in these.

If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

I switched to Dunlop boots entirely when my Muck had seen better days, and the heels ripped out of a less than one year old pair of Servus boots.   I wanted something that was "not made in the Orient". The Puroforts are Dutch-made and the Chesapeake American.

I wear Dunlop Purofort Plus Full Safety boots around the farm working and hiking in the woods. Since I don't go places like I did pre-COVID, I wear them more than anything else. I also wear them to town when I do go. These are MUCH more comfortable than the Muck Boots they replaced, which the foam calves had turned into Swiss Cheese, and the boots were no longer really waterproof. I did not want something cheap (I had a pair of Servus on which the heel ripped out after less than a year); and I didn't want foam calves as they rip in brush thickets and around barbed wire, and I wanted full safety and certified slip-resistant.  I ended up paying $180 for them; which was about double what the Mucks were. Luckily, I'd been planning to replace the Mucks for a year at the time.  I plan to get 5 years out of them like I did the Muck. These are really comfortable, and I can wear them a long time without my feet hurting. I'm a size 9.5W/EE, but these are 10s, to allow for heavy socks.  I've fallen and slipped in these MUCH less than the old Mucks (and the cheap Itasca I still keep around for snow boots, since they have a foam calf) or Servus.

The tread. I didn't clean them before I took these photos back in late Oct.

These are the cheaper Dunlop Chesapeake; about $25. These are also steel toe. These I wear for just general "throw on" and they replaced a pair of Crocs, and the Servus that wore out prematurely. I didn't really need a second pair, but I like having a cheap option.  Plus, if I get something on them, it's not like the expensive boots. Basically, these are garden shoes. They suck in the winter, however. Thus, they are warm-weather only. The tread collects snow which freezes, and then causes me to fall on my rear. The steel toe cap in these is also cold, due to the much thinner rubber they are made out of.

Nice wellies Cody.  :tu:  Yours are clearly doing a lot more than mine but I have a pair of Dunlop "blizzard" boots that have been great for the last couple of winters.  Comfiest wellies I've ever owned.

 :iagree:.  I've used some cheap wellies for work but I always have to add inserts for my feet. 

I picked up some decent boots that had very low mileage on them.  I cannot recall the name off hand.  I also picked up some Clark desert boots ( Chukka ).  These were also pre owned, its not something is typically do but these also were seldom worn.  I picked up both incredibly cheap.  I'll post up pics later.

Nice Dr.Ms, Gareth :tu:

I always liked their boots but the UK made ones. Was very sad when they moved the production of some models to Asia. :(
