First off, I want to say I understand that work boots of this nature are, first and foremost, for safety. I know there is a possibility that some readers roll their eyes at my quest for an aesthetically pleasing boot used for out in the field. My position requires me to make job site visits where construction crews do anything from erecting multi-ton steel to framing walls. Needless to say, I'm encouraged to wear steel-toe boots while on site.
Before this, I had only worked in an office. Therefore, this will be the first work boot purchase I make. The company is offering partial payment, and I'd like to take advantage of this situation by finding a boot that matches my love for style with my career.

I understand that Red Wings are a good choice but wanted to hear from the dappered community. What are your thoughts?
