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.

I refinished wood floors so I didnt wear good shoes. Stain, finish, time on knees etc.

Red Wings are awesome!

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.

Im glad you got $200 to spend on boots. God Bless America!
