    Mostly Matterhorn and Scapa to walk the dog. Snap-on in the shop.

    The company that originally made Dr Martens, NPS Shoes of Northampton still make them in Northampton (England), but they have reverted to the Solovair brand name. I have both shoes and boots. Google the Air Cushion Boot Company.

    Thorogood Heritage 6" soft toes. The ones with the lug sole not the white wedge ones. They are seriously comfortable, made in the USA and according to most of the reviews will last a very long time.

    Chippewa makes a few boots in size 16. They're made in the USA and exceptional quality.

    Altberg Veldthogs. Amazing boots for the wet winters that we get around my way.

    Meindl Burma Pro MFS. Did the 3 peaks challenge in them (climb the 3 highest peaks in the UK in 24 hours), walk pretty much everywhere in them and they have been superb!

    Red Wing 1447's with high arch orthotics. The most comfortable boots I've ever owned, bar none. I'm looking forward to seeing how they last.

    Right now I'm wearing a pair of Sebago Docksides, which have a 7" top, but I'm not sure they count as boots. I do have, however, several pairs of different brands in various stages of wear. The newest is probably a pair of Hathorn boots with a 10" top. I've had them for a few years and they really aren't broken in yet. The most comfortable for hard surfaces is a pair of Red Wings with a wedge sole. That particular sole is what make it so comfortable but it's soft and wears relatively fast. I also have a pair of Danner hiking boots, the Quarry model (which is actually a work boot). They are fairly heavy but required zero break-in time and are easily the most comfortable boots I have for hiking. I have a bunch of other boots, mostly army boots, including a pair of British hob-nailed ammo boots. Comfortable but they make a racket.

    UA Side-Zip boots. Fairly new and still breaking them in. So far, so good.

    Breaking these bad boys in, Red Wing work boots with toecaps.
    Hard to find here in the UK.
    Nice and comfy, warm and gauranteed waterproof.

    Casually, I've been wearing Irish Setter 9" Wingshooters WP (waterproof). They look great, feel great, and they're very comfortable.

    When I feel the need to rekindle my "tactical side," I wear Danner Striker II GTX boots. They're all leather, look kind of cool, are Gore-Tex lined, and have a membrane protected zipper on the side. I own two pair of these with each lasting about five years of quality wear back when I was in uniform.

    To knock around the house or play out in the yard, I often wear an old pair of nubuck leather, waterproof boots I bought from Cabela's many years ago. Although the nubuck looks pretty worn, the boots are still well intact and fully functional. They had a rough break in period, but they've lasted a good while.

    I also like the Merrell Moab waterproof hiking shoes. They're comfortable and indeed waterproof. I have a sort of gray pair called "beluga" and a brown pair I don't recall the name for. They're great, and I alternate them depending on the color of pants I'm wearing, lol.

    I want to throw in a pair of Hush Puppies Lunar II slip-ons. They're awesome. They're very comfortable, and although I've given up on Docker's I like the York and Round Tree slacks I find at Dillard's. This pair of Hush Puppies works well in the business casual setting, and I wear them with a variety of colors of slacks many days of the week.

    Been wearing the same pair since early 2011. I think I have to replace the inner soles as they are a little flat now. But otherwise, these are the best boots I've ever worn.
