    How long is the break in period on these ? Compare to Iron Rangers for example ?

    I'm not sure because I bought them a while ago, and I've barely worn them. Today, I brushed the dust off of them, and I put them on :)

    Bates 11" side zip boots. Comfy and they hold up to everything.

    Just got my Ugg Hannen Boots. Unbelievably comfortable and waterproof. Highly recommended.

    The same Twisted X cowboy boots I been wearing for a couple years now. Only thing I hate is the leather soles on them. I've worn them through and replaced twice now.

    Has anyone used the BOA system before? Looking a pair of Blauer boots that have them, but haven't heard too much about them other than from fishermen who dislike them due to the possibility of breakage

    Red Wing 12" (Western) Wellingtons. Discontinued, but have 3 more pairs stashed in the closet.

    Time for some saddle soap and re-oiling

    Rockport XCS...leather with gore text like liner. Had these for 3 years now and they are the most comfortable leather boots I have. These are my everyday boots at this time of the year (UK winter).[​IMG]

    I love my Danner Mountain Light II's. I only wear them for hiking and hunting and international travel though. They have been great. A lot of people can't wear them because they do have a narrow toe box and a strange heel cup. These things work perfect for me and are the only thing I can hike long distances in (that I've tried) that don't give me blisters. The construction is awesome and they can easily be resoled. There are hundreds of accounts of people owning theirs for 20+ years.

    Just ordered Red Wing Iron Rangers in copper rough and tough. Can't wait. I wanted a pair of Iron Rangers but got a deal on Wolverine 1000 mile boots and went that route instead. The Rangers will likely be my normal day to day boot from here on out. I'm pumped!

    Just a (delayed) follow-up here. Had to find something to use my uniform allotment on. Need boots. Decided to try the Rocky TMC Sport Chukka boots, for about $20 out of pocket plus cleared out my UA. Have too many jackets already. :D

    Will still prob end up with a nicer pair of Danners or Red Wing down the line. But gotta give these a shot, for the price.

    Possible first snow of the season tonight, dress boots may not make it after all.
