    Been wearing Rockfall Marble safety boots everyday for the last month and a bit for anything from 10 to 18 hours. Been like carpet slippers, although perhaps a teeny tiny bit bigger than I'm used to - but not big enough to drop a size. I'm very impressed.

    Normally I wear Salomon X Ultra Mid 2 GTX but last week ran into a good deal on some Merrell's and they felt good. So far so good.

    I recently switched from Rocky Wellington's to Merrell Moag Rover Mid Waterproof and I wear them all the time. Taking the dogs out, my job (I am in IT), going out, etc.

    I now only wear the Rocky's when I want to look somewhat nice with my jeans. I loved the look and functionality of Wellington's but the comfort from these Merrell's out way that.

    I tend to live in either a cheap pair of karrimor suede walking boots, my issue altberg peacekeeper p3s, or my goretex army pro boots.

    The karrimors are crap. Poor quality and you can tell they sold out and are now made in the Far East. However, they are very comfy and fine for walking to the pub. Wearing out very quickly though, far faster than they should...

    The altbergs are super comfy, don't need much breaking in and are warm and waterproof. My duty takes me round a northern English coastal town, and water or cold has never been an issue in them. A truly brilliant boot. I also get them free!

    The best boots I've ever had though are the pro boot. Bought them and wore them for 14 hours straight from new (no chance to break them in) and worried my feet would be in bits. No fear, they are like slippers, they fit me perfectly. Had them 9 years now. They need re-soling, but I think that is great service. I've worn them everywhere I can and would buy another pair in a heartbeat if I could find them, they haven't been made for years...

    I don't really care for other shoes, and wear others under duress!

    Treated myself to some of these today

    http://www.aigle.com/en_uk/parcours-2-iso-938.html

    My muckboots lining had worn away at the heel after 5-6 years so no complaints just fancied a change, after a short walk with the dog these are night and day more comfortable than muckboots which where pretty bloody good providing they last a similar time frame I'm converted to aigle now much more supportive than the muckboots and just as warm.

    95% of the time I wear a pair of German Army para boots.
    I have problems with my feet and these boots are so supportive that since Ive started wearing them I rarely have trouble anymore. Theyre also extremely comfortable once broken in.

    Finally - a pair of boots that actually fit my weird wide feet.

    [​IMG]

    They are Danish Duckfeet, and the model is called Fåborg.

    [​IMG]

    The Fåborgs are designed a bit like old fashioned army boots - for an army made up of equal parts ducks and clowns.

    [​IMG]

    The soles are natural rubber, and seem rather similar to those of Clarks desert boots.

    [​IMG]

    Like them or hate them - you have to admit that they have a quite distinctive style.

    Today, I wear them like it's 1975 - with corduroys.

    I like them. They reminds me to the Camel boots I have worn when I was a teen. We just called them Camel boots. The actual name is Havanna as I know ... click. I loved them but the actual models shall not have such a great quailty anymore.
    Maybe I should have a look to Danish Duckfeet :)

    Ah, yes, the construction looks pretty similar. They even come in the same color. However, the defining feature of the Duckfeet is the very wide last. Hence the name. I guess they do not fit everyone, but they work great for me, as my feet are very short, wide and nearly square (the big toe and the next one are of equal length).

    As I just bought them yesterday, and they are my first pair, I do not know how well they will hold up over time. I have read very positive reviews, though. Also, the fact that the company sells replacement soles should mean that they have great faith in the leather quality and workmanship.

    In France, we call them "Pataugas". They were Army issued during the Indochina war for the jungle and were still seen sometimes during the 80s to the early 2000s, especially among the navy commandos for their missions on boats.
    The urban legend about them is that your feet smell bad after use...is it true? Do you have to take your boots outside your house when coming home? :rofl_revamped:

    Irish Setters. Going on the third year. No too bad. Liked my wolverines better.
    Very comfortable but not very durable. Heel started squeaking about 12 months after I owned them.
