    On a side note, I have found that insoles can make just as much difference as good boots.

    I have become a huge fan of the KEEN boots. Bought a pair back in 2011 and made it for almost a year. Very comfortable and waterproof too. I do tile and stone and had virtually no wear on the toes from being on the floor. I usually change out my shoes around 9 months. I bought a new pair last October. The new ones were a different style, but just as comfortable. Also, being that I am on my toes setting tile, steel toes usually gives me problems. This second pair is steel toes and are very comfortable. Will be purchasing these again.

    What style/brand/type of work footwear do you prefer and why? I ask because my beloved pair of work boots are fast approaching the happy shoe box in the sky. They are a pair of lace up Justin roper work boots. They have been with me since back in my cow herding days. I decided maybe I should explore all the new and exciting choices of today. Any advice?

    I recommend the KEEN Utility Men’s Tacoma 6″ Steel Toe Work Boot… but it is a very different style than your current boots!

    I’ve had good success with the Dakota 8″ steel toe work boots with the Duratoe. I may give the KEEN a try though when mine bite the dust based on everyone’s comments about them here.

    Thanks for the heads up Jeff. So the Coast Mountain Sports in the hfx shopping centre is now Atmosphere? I used to buy a lot of my shoes at Coast Mountain.

    I will confess…I wear sneakers. I wore boots for the longest time. Timberlands were my favorite. But it is just taking a toll on my feet. It took me awhile just to find decent comfortable sneakers.

    I like keen sneakers, but do not find enough support in their hikers.

    I’ve had really good success with Merrell sneakers and that is what I wear in my shop. I have a pair that is only worn in the shop, they don’t leave the shop. I have other Merrell sneakers and hikers too, they all hold up very well.

    Kent – what sneakers did you decide to go with?

    It is not uncommon for me to just keep my regular athletic shoes on, but my wife sometimes gets frustrated once they get really nasty/dirty

    I went with New Balance, which is a company still making shoes right here in Maine. Go figure.
