    I’ve been a Belleville Boot wearer since 2001, but when the last order I made was rejected for out of stock, I ended up with a pair of Solomon’s...

    And the are outstanding!

    I also have a beater pair Rocky boots that have held up well.

    I went with Rocky S2V full leather. Ive been looking for about 5 hours today, reviews, manufacturers website seeing what models are made in the USA, price, etc.

    I went with the S2V's for 3 reasons... triple stitched leather, stitched soles & Made in the USA. The Danner Rivet TFX has stitched soles but are over $300. Non of the Bellevilles had stitched soles.

    Good luck with them. They aren’t what they used to be, or maybe I just got a couple of bad pairs in a row from a bad batch. I had a problem with the heals.

    Rocky will only replace the first defective pair of boots for free! Russell Moccasin make great boots too. Most comfortable footwear ever!

    I wear the same, except in black. I’m on my second pair in 10 years. The old pair are still used for dirty work and the new pair for daily use. Great boot, durable and more comfortable than of my other shoes.

    Kind of like these, but a different color?

    There’s a reason I still have them.

    I’ll warn you it’s a wide footbed and ankle; which can lead to some folding and flexing in the shaft if you’ve got chicken legs like me. Since the tongue is sewn to the shaft, that can lead to some discomfort. Thicker boot socks can help alleviate that.

    Caveat: my newest S2Vs were issued in 2013 or 2014, I think. None of the pairs have had QA issues.

    5.11 Atlas mid length. They’re my duty boots. Comfortable all day. Debating on picking up the shorter tennis shoe type for summer
