Wolverine durashocks.

Currently wearing Carolina's, but I won't buy another pair.

Have also worn Red Wings in the past with good results, they always discontinue the models that I like and are a few bucks more than the durashocks.

Doc Martins give the best comfort and support of any shoe I've tried in the last several years.

Since I have very narrow feet, my only choices are New Balance 991s or Allen Edmonds dress shoes. Which ones I wear depends on the client.

Redwing work boots - I have a pair that is 17 or 18 years old, stitching is finally going, but not surprising after all that time in mud snow salt snow salt and more salt, let alone drywall dust, oil, grease, and the dogs using them for a chew toy. They are still very very comfortable, and there have been times I've been in them for 50-55 hours straight (snowplowing). For 'pretty work', the best I've ever had are Florsheim - still comfortable even when on your feet for 12-16 hours at a stretch like at a convention.

Thanks for the advice as you know that the shoe you wear is very important.i have noticed a lot of construction electricians now wearing the ironworkers boot and say there great,just looks like to many laces for me.
