    Well, I am in the market for a pair of chainsaw boots. I know Stihl makes a pair for around $250, but was wondering what other manufacturers make a good chainsaw boot with steel toes and possibly kevlar fibers in them? Recomendations and experiences welcome.

    I wear the above boot, stay away from the two inch heel, it will kill your knees.

    I like the Vibram Tacoma sole on my steel toed Carharrts,its their most aggressive style for extra traction.I have an older pair of Carolinas with about 50% of tread left,I drove in some 1/2" hex head self tapping screws for help walking on the ice,steep muddy slopes & the few times I climb now.

    I wear the rubber boot style. Mine are probably close to 15 years old now and pretty well shot. Seams are tearing, soles worn. They are BeeJay brand (lol, seriously). Next pair will likely be lace up if I can find some for the extra support and ease of putting on and taking off. All thats on the shelf locally are the rubber boot style so Im not sure where I'll be able to find some.
