Hello Group,

I am looking for a good quality non insulated work boot, but don't need to spend big bucks.
I saw two online at Walmart, that I am considering.
After much research online, I am confused as to which one would be the better quality boot.

Here are the two work boots in question:

1 - Herman Survivors Men's Big Timber II w/steel toes for $60.00

or

2 - Dickies Job Rated Maxx waterproof w/steel toes for $70.00

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

CTwoodnutt

What kind of "much research online?" - did you read any reviews/opinions of them?

Bobrainman thank you so much for that link - I can't believe the fantastic prices on the site for ladies designer handbags!

Hi-

I will be using them for general outdoor work, not an everyday use, so I don't want to spend too much on them.

I will be using them for gathering/cutting firewood, but also cutting lawns etc.

I want a non-insulated work boot with a steel toe, and perhaps waterproof (although I can buy a waterproof spray, and treat them myself).


For Winter use, I already have a pair of thinsulate ones.

So that's what I am looking for!

Hi,

Well, I've tried to find some "Work Boot Reviews" online, read people's comments/ratings who have bought them, gone to the manufacturer's websites to read the same...(ok, yes, they'll be biased...) read the various descriptions on what features each boot has, looked at other merchants sites (Cabelas, Tractor Supply, etc) and asked these very same questions on this site, and two other.

Just trying as best that I can, to get a good, educated idea, of which of these boots might be the best.

The bottom line is that good quality and WalMart are not synonymous.

Since you seem set on WalMart, just get the ones that are most comfortable and call it a day.
