    If your socks are long enough, fold them out and over the top of the boots - it will keep them up.
    I tuck my laces into the top of the sock too, stops them coming undone.


    I have almost worn out a pair of Steel Blue Tindall boots (composite safety toe, 8" leather/nylon work boot) and today bought a pair of 511 ATAC Storm waterproof boots, to see how they go as a day to day boot - and leave the Tindalls for when i need a safety toe boot

    How awesome! I've never seen Wesco High Liners in real action! Thanks for sharing the great pic.

    By the way, do you know Wesco boots have hefty price tags in Japan because of greedy parasitic local distributor? Typical High Liner costs around $850.

    Every time I see this thread I am tempted to type...

    "Got Timbos on my toes, and this is how it goes, HOO, 1,2 oh my God!"

    Let's see how many Beastie fans are looking at boots!

    I have probably posted some of these in other threads but I generally rotate between Danner Mountainlights, Red Wing Iron Rangers, Weinbrenner Hellfires and Chippewa Loggers. (Also Thorogood fire boots when I'm at work)

    Garmont T8 in my humble opinion. I've gone and hiked over 100 miles in these and they've yet to fail me. Only thing starting to come undone is the lip where one day I underestimated a branch on the floor and ate it on the face. Made a little spot where the sole is coming apart from the upper on my toe, but after a couple months this spot really hasn't grown.

    Wearing a pair of Caterpillar founder boots recently. That's my first pair of casual boots. I love it.

    I've been wearing Wolverine slip resistant work boots, same pair for the past 10+ years. They only get worn through the fall and winter months since they are insulated and waterproof with a Gore Tex lining. So technically they have about 5 years of wear on them . Still wet from shoveling snow off the roof.

    Lowa Baffin Pro they just came back from Lowa after a resole. Lowa didn't just put a new sole on them they replaced the entire foot bed area and did it for 54 euro which is 15 under the quote.

    A pair of Doc Marten Conrads, nice not having to deal with laces and they're dead quiet too.

    Asolo 520 GTX, just back from some snowshoeing. These took a dang long time to fully break in, but it was worth it - hope to just keep resoling from here.

    Some of you folks with pix of soaking wet boots should have a go with Nikiwax - water just beads up and rolls off without impeding breathability that much.
