The biggest joke is when Timberland boots became a negroid fashion statement. Whoever had the cleanest work boots wins. Its so bad the company has a "pro" version which are ACTUAL work boots and then they have the nigger booties.

Actually, joke's on you, it technically is work wear for them on the corners when they're selling crack in the winter.

i used to buy the cheap wal mart boots twice a year. The sole would wear out before the body of the boot did.

I have a pair of Red Wing boots that I have worn nearly every day for three and a half years and a pair of Ecco casual shoes that I have had for even longer. The sole on the red wings is just starting to wear down enough I will have to start thinking about replacing them and the ecco's are still in great shape.

When it comes to shoes it really pays off to go with a more expensive brand that is going to last for years and years.

If you want to make a shoe repairman hate you, bring him a Wal-Mart work boot to re-sole.

I just dropped $200 on a pair of Ariat Slip On Ropers. Much better quality than the $80 work boots I'd buy from Walmart twice a year.
