The worst pair of boots Ive ever owned were Redwings. That was a HUGE waste of $220. Will never own any again.
In leather boots I used to love Danners, Bates, Carolina, and Timberland.

Redwings are good if you want a service oxford type shoe.

I normally kept a pair of lineman's boots in the van for the times I'd be on a ladder all day.

I like my industrial Doc Martians. Better than I expected given how much regular Doc Martian quality dropped when they started to make them in China.

Keens are good, especially if you have wider feet. I wore red wings for years but switched to keens for my last pair

Had never heard of them before but looking at their designs they look just like the Timberland Pros I wear.
