So, I'm pretty desperately in need of a new pair of boots for work. I'm not very savvy on boot purchasing, so I picked a pair up out of necessity from Wal-Mart about nine months ago. While they've been extremely comfortable (among the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned), within the past two weeks they've started to quite literally fall apart, which I've found is a common complaint. Getting footwear for myself is a massive hassle, mainly due to my feet being a size larger than the sizes most shoe stores carry (I'm a men's size 14), the fact that I need something in a wide width, and a general lack of good shoe stores that even carry work boots in my area.
That said, I'm looking for a pair of work boots. And I mean a good pair, a pair that's going to last me a good long while. If I have to order online, I will, but I need boots that fit and the sooner the better.
Here's what my workplace demands place on a boot:
Steel-toed. Non-negotiable. Required by work, and even if they weren't required, I'd have them anyway as I have to manipulate heavy loads with a crane very frequently.
Around four miles of walking a day, up to six days a week, for between 8 and 10 hours a day, and standing when not walking.
Occasional slippery surfaces. Almost always around acids, mainly HCl and Bonderite.
Any recommendations on a good brand or specific boot to look out for that fits my needs? Like I said, I'm up for ordering online, but a boot that I can find in my area (upstate SC) is a plus.
Money isn't much of an issue, but I'd like to keep it at around the $100-125 range if that's even possible.
