    All I wear are boots and flip flops...Red wing work boots and my cowboy boots are HH. These took forever to break in so now I just have the heels done every couple of years..never have had to replace the soles..had them about 8 years.

    another vote for Double H's, some of the most comfortable boots I've ever had. And no matter what brand boots I get, I always get me a set of the Dr. Scholl's custom orthotics (the ones where you stand on the machine and it gives you suggestions on which ones to use)

    My last set of boots that I bought two years ago was my current pair of Chippewa boots. The soles are soft and the insoldes that come in them are super comfy. I walk about 5 miles a day or more in my work boots, all over the airfield. The tread is getting worn, so they could use a resole, but the leather is in great shape. Best boots I've worn, IMO.

    I use Nike SFB Leather or Garmonts for when I'm in uniform. Both last me a solid year of hard abuse.

    Dr. Sholls

    While I was in the Corps I would throw a set of Dr. Scholls work soles in my bates and call it good. For hiking I like Merrell boots because they are lightweight and have little to no break-in time in my experience.

    I prefer pull on boots. My go to boots are a pair of Carhartt pull on's from back when Red Wing made their boots and a pair of Muck chore boots

    For work I wear Carolina's, composite toe with metatarsal guard. 2 years, 3 pairs of laces and one set of gellin' insoles later and theyre still the most comfortable and durable boot I've ever owned. I'm maintenance in a powder metal plant and they've been soaked in oil, grease, brakeclean, acetone, you name it and they're both still holding up great! Although the pull on Wolverines are a close second for me

    I have used Blundstone boots for years, growing up on a farm laceless boots were key, having to swith into gumboots multiple times a day. I have 3 pairs, work, winter and formal.

    Does anyone have experience with either the Nike sfb or 5.11 recon? I'm looking for an 8 inch boot in black that's lightweight and breathable. I wear rockys jump boot in the winter. Looking for a good summer boot.

    Having worn 5.11s for on duty I can tell you first hand they are just an expensive version of the cheapy Magnum boots. Did not like them at all. Just my humble opinion.
    I've been wearing the Bates ICS in the Delta 8in and I like them.

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.
