Well I finally broke down and bought some new boots. Been having feet problems for a year or so. I never really thought about how much your feet affect your life. Lots of heel pain, sore legs and back problems. Then I went to a local Red Wing store. From the first pair I tried on to the pair I finally decided on it was amazing. The guy at the store was very helpful and actually seemed to care how I felt. That was a nice surprise. I ended up getting a pair of Red Wing 2406 boots. Went all out and got there inserts as well. I can honestly say that it was an instant improvement. I am on my feet on concrete on average 10-12 hours a day. Plus running around the house and yard for another 6. I have spent the last few days running around like I was 18 again ( far from it lol). I want to thank you guys for your input. I spent many nights doing research to find what would work for me. These boots will do the trick for work and play. It is true that you get what you pay for. Thanks again.

Couldn't agree more, though I've had a few pair that were of extra heavy leather and needed to be filled with water, dumped, and worn dry to get the perfect fit.
