I work in an office, but I don't do the suit and tie thing-we're allowed to wear khakis and button down shirts. I'm not big on "shoes"-I prefer boots. On the weekends I live in my workboots (Carolina Loggers), so I wear boots to work too, the problem is they're crap-at least the ones I've been buying. Usually I just pick up a pair of black 6" boots at one of those shoe warehouse places and they fall apart in a year or less. I like black work boots because as long as your pants come down low enough they don't look that much different than a black dress shoe. Lately I've been looking for better quality boots that fit the bill and found these: http://www.midwestboots.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=WO2582&Category_Code=Waterproof They're a little pricey at $144, but I'm betting with Wolverine you're getting what you pay for. Anybody have any other recommendations?
