I have worn Redwings for almost 30 years. I just switched to Blundstones. They are made in Australia. They are like slip on 6" boots. I wear a pair and have a brand new pair in the truck if I ever get too muddy to use the boot condoms. They work out really well because I can kick them on and off in a second. Most times I can walk thru the customers gargae and right downstairs to the basement, so I don't have to remove my boots. But if I change a water heater and want to remove the aerators and blow the crud out, I just kick off the Blunnies and can walk thru the house and not upset the customer.
I can't believe no one has mentioned Danners, Matterhorns, or Belleville's. These are big military boots but civilain styles are made. If they're good enough for spec war then they're good enough for plumbers. Belleville's are my personal favorite. Danners were the closest I ever had to a waterproof boot. Then they got wet and took a week to dry out. My Belleville's could get wet in the morning, change socks by 0900 and they're dry by lunch.
I spend alot of time working at floor level,how flexible are they.
I would get the desert military boots, they don't scuff floors, and they're like wearing sneakers. Go to a miltary surplus store and you can pick them up for arond 50 bucks. Danners go as high as 375. Matterhorn makes a boot called "bootzilla" that's offers more protection than any other boot I've ever seen. My favorite boot are Bellevilles that retail for 75 bucks. Belleville makes the offical Marine Corp boot now.
