    Have a look at rufflander, proper old school british leather boots, they take a while to wear in but they last forever and once worn in are comfy. Made in the UK too.

    They are great boots though, the trouble is, i remember when you could get ox blood red high leg DM's for less than £30 :vsad: Ouch, lesson learned - back to steelies!

    Aye but by the time the docs die you would have been through 3 or 4 cheap sets.

    Wife's everyday docs have been going 3 years so far.

    Edited. Filler on my fingers is messing with the touchscreen

    I got a pair of Dickies Quebec when I started in my current job, worn all day every day for 3-4 months at a time and the first pair lasted around 3 years - so about a year and a half to two years worth of every day use.

    The lined ones get a bit warm at times but I've also been quite comfy in them in - 25 ish. Was so impressed with them I bought a pair myself for home.

    Current pair I've been issued from work are Helly Hansens (don't know the type) but they are feeling pretty worn out already after 4 months of use

    It was the thing in the 80s, status measured by the number of lace holes.
