Depends on the situation. When I have work to do I usually wear my Chippewa loggers (if you want to see what they look like, look at Jarhead Greasemonkey's post on page 5... exact same boots, though mine have a gouge or two in the toecap). For daily wear I love my 6 inch Thorogood plain toe, wedge soled, Tobacco Gladiator American Heritage boots (Thorogood REALLY needs to come up with a catchier name for those boots). Most comfortable boots I've worn. When I want something a little dressier, I have a pair of inexpensive but good quality and nice looking brown nubuck Western boots with a leather sole. When I really have to get in the muck and mud I have a pair of those cheap Servus rubber steeltoes... no use getting a pair of Mucks when I rarely need the muck boots. My previous pair of go-anywhere, do-anything boots was a pair of nine inch Bates Navy issue steel toes. Still functional, but worn out... the Vibram outsole actually cracked at the point where the tread meets the arch area (hope that made sense) after about 3 years of abuse. Upper still has some life left in it and the sole could be usable for another few years if it didn't have that crack in each sole, but where the crack is there's no easy way to repair it and have it functional, so they're retired. They were the best $40 article of clothing I have bought.
