That's a pretty broad stroke.

Any particular style? Cowboy, work, everyday?

I've got a pair of these, and they're like wearing tennis shoes.

I've had a couple pairs of Carolinas that were super comfortable all day on concrete floors

I will say those timberlands are for casual use, not work boots by any stretch.

Replay.

But then, I tend to like some unusual things.

I have a pair modeled after the Vietnam era combats with dual zips on the side in dark olive canvas and distressed brown oiled leather that I love wearing with jeans.

After 8 years they are now like wearing socks with lug soles. I just had them resoled in Vibram at the cobblers and they are good to go for another 10 easily.

Clark's and Tsubo are two other brands I have had fantastic results/wear with over the years.


http://www.clarksusa.com/us/c/mens

https://www.tsubo.com/collections/men

I easily have at least 10 different pair of Tsubo from sneakers to boots to dress shoes. They are different, but are some of the most comfortable I have worn. I usually buy them on Ebay or at Bob Jones, here in KCMO.


Clark's Boots have also never failed for comfort, casual style and a classic understated look. Anything in their Boot Shop tends to be stellar and tends to veer to the opposite side of the style spectrum than Replay or Tsubo. Desert Boots and Chelsea would be two of my favorites. All manners or finishes, colors, heels, soles etc. They may not look like much on the profile, but try a pair on, especially with the crepe soles. If they fit your foot shape and walking gait, you will love them.

Just my $0.02

I like shoes and boots.

I got my pair at the Bunker in KCMO in a sale for $63.00, but to replace them might be north of $200.00. Online or EBay would be your best bet.

Note: Looks like there are some on EBay now for about $150.00 free shipping. My go to comfort boots, though I did dye the Replay logo on the heel to match the leather. Not a fan of writing on my clothes of any type.

I have a pair of Allsaints that I got almost 10 years ago that I love. They're so comfortable that I literally wore them for about 3 hours of walking around San Francisco without any discomfort.

Just recently got them resoled so they should be good for another 10 years.

They don't make the pair I have anymore, but these look nice: https://www.us.allsaints.com/men/foo...5&category=315

I also have a nice pair of Dr. Martens I got on clearance for like $70 that I use when I do more work related stuff and don't want to get my AS too dirty. Those are nice as well.

I can vouch for Clarks being like clouds on your feet. I won't buy dress shoes anywhere else. I haven't had a pair of their boots, but I can only imagine they're fantastic, too.

Yeah that looks very much like my combat boots I have

ECCO Track 25 Moc High. My current pair was purchased 7 years ago. Still look new. Wear only in the winter.

The dress shoes of theirs I have are lined in lambskin... Let me tell ya, having your feet wrapped in dead baby animal is absolutely divine.

I got a pair of Clarks Chukka boots. I was afraid that they wouldn't be comfortable, but I was wrong. They normally aren't cheap, but I have seen them at Legends as low as about $65ish. Amazon has had them as low as $50, depending on color and size.
