    Its that time of year again. I need to replace the summer shoes with winter ones. I just purchased a pair of Dr. Martin boots and am not very impressed. They have no arch support. I wish I could get Merrills that would work for drivers. I loved my Merrills for preload. Excellent arch support and very durable. What shoes do you drivers wear? We live in a rural area and don't have immediate access to the major shopping that you find in major cities, so I do most of my shopping on line:confused:1. Thanks bunches!!!!!!

    My buddy used to wear tactical boots at Brown. 6" with the side zip and said they kept him comfy. Look at Bates, or even Converse perhaps.

    I couldn't google that, I had to go to

    JARHEAD And...That's rite!

    I go with boots year around. Try Rocky or Georgia Boots. They pay for themselves.


    Support the american worker and buy the best work shoe Redwing has to offer. My pair cost about $125 I know it is alot of money but they last.

    I've had good luck with Red Wings. I get their special (expensive) insoles too. I get about 18 months to 2 years out of the shoes and about 3 winters out of the boots.

    Slip resistant is a must.

    I know the Timberland's are available on when checking out if you use the code "brown" you get 22% off and 10% off of sale items.

    I right now have Nike Goadome ACG. Not too bad but need a better insole. I would love to get some Eccos but don't want to pay full price for them and I keepgetting outid on eBay. I have Ecco golf shoes and I will vouch to say that every pair of Eccos that have ever touched my feet felt like heaven.

    I like Wolverine Durashocks. They last a long time but cost over 100 dollars. Many of the postal people I know wear them that have walking routes. The soles can be replaced since they are stiched on.

    I wear redwings. They used to last six months when I was in the big city. My last pair lasted 16 months. It all depends where you work I guess.
