    Heritage work boots advice

    I am looking for some heritage work boots, hopefully around $150 and durable. I am interested in what features I should look for as well as specific recommendations.

    Hundred and half is a little tough.

    I've got a pair of Chippewa Apaches that are pretty nice. They are maybe a tad more modern than heritage. I paid closer to 100 flat when I got them a few years ago, but if you keep an eye on sales...

    The Bean Engineer Boots are on sale right now, but still more like $187

    Could also look to the Frye Clearance Section. They sometimes have some pretty good deals, and they have a wide variety of styles

    Red Wing Iron Ranger 2nds from Sierra Trading Post. With a coupon, they can be had for close to $150 and you can walk them through hell and back.

    You got me all excited. I've been wanting some Beckmans, but they only have them in a 7.5

    You can get Chippewa service boots on Amazon for around $150. I got my dad a pair a few years ago and he liked them so much he got a second pair in a different color. He needs tough boots for work and both pairs are still going strong. I think specific features will depend on what you need them for.

    Edit: Those LL Bean Engineer boots @bassopotamus recommended are made by Chippewa and essentially the same as the service boot. With their return policy and at 25% off that's a solid recommendation.

    Keep checking back, or sign up for email alerts. They restock periodically and usually have IRs in Amber Harness as well as a selection of Beckmans. I have a pair of IRs that I picked up and they are excellent, but since we're talking seconds, you could end up with a dud. Just something to keep in mind.

    I would wear them to work, I do a mixture of office and workshop work, but I don't meet with customers. I would also like to walk in wet grass and not get my feet soaked (that happened to me recently)

    I also got a pair of Wolverine Kilometers from STP for a hundred bucks.
