    I have a pair of black boots from danner. Waterproof and insulated by gore TeX and thinsulate. I can't wear them everyday, so I usually go with a waterproof sneaker. Right now its a north face sneaker.

    Personally if I had to go with ONE boot, it would be the old standard black combat boot. Wearing boots made for jungles or deserts through a foot of snow sucks, as would wearing my Danner Matterhorn Gortex lined boots when it is 100 degrees F outside would also suck. Unless you are riding a horse, cowboy boots would not be the best option in any weather/terrain.

    Footwear would be important, but like many things, you would have to think about the terrain and climate in which you will be wearing them and under what type of situations.

    I think where your located makes a big difference on what kind of boots are needed. Personally i wear Justin, high top lace up's. ("roppers" is what i call them) They are great for me, and are very comfortable. Prepper Boots?  Best Overall Prepper Boot?-pppp.jpg

    Depends on the area. For me 90% of the time I wear Redwing pull on work boots. I think the style is called wellington. If it's cold I wear thick wool socks. If it's really cold and snowy I have insulated lace up hunting boots from Irish setter.

    Depends on what I'm doing. If I'm walking over rough terrain I like a sturdy vibram soled logger. If I'm walking on milder terrain I like a lightweight insulated hiking boot. If it is snow covered slushy terrain I like a wearing a good pair of pac's. I have them all and where I'm going pretty much dictates the boot I'll be wearing.

    I've got a pair that I really have a liking for.
    They are black lace ups from Herman Survivor. (closeout at Wally World, marked $30, down from $90)
    They have reflective banding, are waterproof all the way up the laces, have a strong composite over the toe for crush resistance, shockproof(electric shock, that is, no metal), have pointed ridges that run over the composite toe and across the back of the heel(I'd use them for "acutely applied pressure", if you know what I mean), aggressive tread, puncture resistant sole(nails and such), and are Thinsulated.

    They are designed to be a safety boot. That's why they still have toe protection, but no metal, to avoid electrical pathways.
    I'd use them for rock, snow, mud, sand, just about anything really.
    They look a little large, like the feet on Frankenstein's monster, but not too bad.

    There is no way I would ever pick just one. Even if this is what I wear everywhere but work:

    KEEN Mens Newport H2 Sandals

    Whether shopping, in the woods poking around, doing yard work, or heading to the beach, Keen sandals. Winter? Yuppers. Summer? Of course. Looking for snakes? Are you out of your mind? That's what the snake boots are for!

    I have browning made kangaroo leather light weight hunting boots for normal wear. Insulated waterproof Iron ridge hunting boots from cabbalas for Ice and Snow weather. Everyday wear is 5.11 tactical ankle boots with side zip and waterproof. All are extremely comfortable and broken in. Without comfort you may as well be bare foot.

    All depends on where you live and what you do. I don't think there is a one fits all. I wear Merrill in south Texas (mostly topsiders though). I've hikers Yellowstone and other paces with them and they work for me. The caveat being it was summer. Winter.. All together different boot.
