    What exactly are you planning on doing with the boots? Are they to be used for combat or hiking or work. Either could work in any situation in a pinch but if you're asking which one is best overall it really depends on your needs.
    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Been wearing Bates Ultra Lights for the past 30 years most everyday. I dont think they can be beat. They are cool in the summer..warm in the winter and do not slip. the side zipper can make old folks get them on without having a heart attack from over exertion.

    I wear Lowa Renegades everyday at work, I wear them hiking. They are comfortable and have held up against a decent amount of abuse for about 1 year now and still good shape.

    A lot of boots sold as combat boots are cheap copy junk. Becareful. Infantry you learn good boots worn properly. The military boots issued for middle east are pretty good and getting better. I have 3 new pair still left over and could wear them for anything from a Dinner ride with the wife to SHTF stand your ground.

    I like KEEN hiking boots several models are at least assembled in the USA. They fit me well and give a lot of support to a heavy guy carrying a back pack. Combat boots no longer work for me without an insert/ arch support. Work boots - steel toe are good for a lot of things but I would not go hiking in them, it is what I wear ,with inserts ,every day.

    As said,depends on the activity. I've got work,hiking,combat,dress shoes and boots. They are for different things. And I'm not even close to Imelda Marcos!

    Combat boots are for combat. Are you married?
