About a month ago I picked up another pair of boots. I work in an office that doesn't require boots but I'm hard on shoes. My last pair was Cat and they lasted over two years. I prefer non lace up boots. I put these Dr. Martens on and they've been great. They broke in quick, aren't too heavy for steel toe, and its like walking on air even without insoles. Oil, fat, acid, petrol, and alkali resistant. If you're in the market for new boots check em out. Little pricy at 130 but well worth it. They run about a 1.5 bigger. I wear a 10-10.5 and these are 12s.
