I just expected at the $200+ mark people would be expecting resolable/rebuildable types..thus there would have been more available. Normally I get the throw away types and find them to 90% be JUNK bad thin soles, zippers that rip out, stitching that comes undone, non waterproof, soles that come unglued, or just simply uncomfortable these included(Magnums,Converse,Bates,galls branded,Red Wings,) all these I had something within the first year go "wrong"(one of the faults listed) with them..I cant stand getting them anymore so I figured id just gotten a pair on works boot plan of ones I can wear in the summer(new Ballances) but i dont really have another good pair of boots...thi\us im going out and trying to get something decent on my own dime.(as they wont be safety toed and thats what they want at work)
You don't work in facilities, do you? Those are the only ones they enforce that on at my joint, though I suppose technically everybody should have to because of the sliding door we all have to go through coming in.
