As long as there is no snow or deep water on the ground , the best boots to have on a MILITERY ISSUED JUNGLE BOOTS. They are made of nylon and leather. I once had to chase a 13 year old on the rail road track road bed for just over three miles before I caught him. The two boots together dont way as much as one regular Cochran Boot and never wear shoes. You may have need for a firmer persuader then a shoe on occasion. Also the jungle boots have an aluminum plate on the bottom and a large amount of rubber to absorb shock. They only draw back is that they dont protect you from sitting water because of the nylon weave that is open and they are not designed to support your ankles very much , but still better then any shoe.

I'm on my feet 12 hours a night working in the jail and my Rockies is more comfortable than my very $$$$ running shoes. I just recently got another pair and didnt get Rockies and well ... Rockies are the way to go.

1021 Street Smart by Rocky is the way to go. I have the Military issue jungle boots and there's no comparison.

Bates Durashocks  $89.00


Keeps your feet dry, comfortable, and water resistant (steping off in a couple water holes is not fun).

I like the Magnum Hi-Tec boots. Currently I wear the RG (Response Gear)  tactical boots.. They are the 8" boots. I get them at BIG 5 Sporting Goods Store..

There are many good duty boots out there.  Another thing to consider is insoles.

All I can stress is SLIP-RESISTANT!  I dunno what types of sites you'll be working, but 9 times out of 10, you'll need those.  Oh, and make sure they are comfy!  Long hours on your feet and all.  :-)

Peace

I wear ridge Air Tac boots, and I highly recommend them. Many people compliment them.

I wear Magnums.  I use to wear Bates but they hurt my feet so no more Bates.  I had a coworker wear 5-11's and he said they were the most comfortable boots.  So there you have it....my two cents!
