    Boot comfort

    I'm sure a lot of you wear boots, whether it be work boots, combat boots, hiking boots, or even cowboy boots. What kind of insoles do you use in your boots for maximum comfort?

    Get a pair of Kenetrek boots. They are amazing straight out of the box without even breaking in and last forever. Not cheap but when you figure out how long they last, they end up being a bargain. Don't have to use any aftermarket insole. My hunting boots are eight years old and look five days old.

    Not looking to start trouble. I never heard of Kenetrek before. Looked them up and they look to be a rip off of the LL bean boot.
    My Bean boots are 21 years old and still look pretty new.

    I like I keens. No wear in, for me, water proof, warm enough, fiberglass safety toe, lightweight, and a variety of flavors.

    I've got a pair of Red Wing boots with a custom insole. No complaints.
    The build of "Equinso-Ocha", aka White Devil:

    Hunting boots = Danner High Ground (probably the most comfortable boots/shoes I've ever worn)

    Hiking boots/shoes = Garment Zenith Trail

    The above contain very stiff soles which is what I needed.

    Work shoes = various, but mostly Italian

    Everything else = barefoot or Reef flippy-floppys

    I've never used insoles on any of my boots. For hiking, I've had great luck with Merrell and Vasque. For work boots, Red Wings.

    I wear Red Wings myself and love them. But after wearing them every day all day for over a year, it's time for new insoles and maybe even time to have them resoled.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
