Best boots I can get for $150????

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have some Columbia's but I can't wear them out because they're ridiculously heavy and gaudy. I live in Wisconsin though so I need some casual boots I can wear daily. I know $150 is a low budget around here, but I also know it can buy me a quality boot. I was looking at Timberland Earthkeepers...any other suggestions?

[obligatory] this doesn't merit its own thread [obligatory]. http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/49464...#ppMoreDetails or something on sale, eg: http://shopstels.com/shop/mens/sale/alfie-boot.html (they're 70% off if you call it in.)

No, but there is a general thread for quick questions that's conveniently been stickied

Thorogood or Chippewa I would think. I like the Thorogood moc toe boots (if you like a wedge sole). Both should be USA made

90% of those are probably over $150

Thanks! I didn't realize I could get made in USA boots for this price point. The Thorogoods look excellent.

So save up your milk money. Then stick around and learn something. Even better, check the buy/sell forum. You'd be surprised at how cheap the drops get.

Either ebay or B&S. If you are patient enough you'll find something for up to 75% off and in like-new condition. Earlier today I purchased these Alfred Sargents for $150 shipped (usually $400) on B&S: http://www.alfredsargent.co.uk/ASSho...0and%20Country. Earlier this week I also bought these Grenson Sharps off eBay for $115 shipped: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...F8&me=&seller= On eBay, you can save a search and get daily emails. Makes it really easy to burn your money on shoes.

If you're in Wi, go to the Red Wing Store; they have an outlet store with factory seconds. Great Deals.

Not only are the Thorogoods made in the US, but right here in Wisconsin - Chippewa too! Another Wisconsin option would be the Russell Moc sales list, but most of those are well over $150, even at clearance prices.

Blundstones are about $150. I have a pair and love them. They are kind of a particular look though.

Thorogood boots or the Katahdin, as suggested in this thread. They're probably your best bet. They are not quite equivalent to Red Wings or Wolverines but they will treat you fine. Honestly, you may want to save up another 100 dollars and spring for the next batch of Epaulet boots (or this one, if they still have your size); they are pretty much the finest bang for your buck of any available option.

LL Bean's Katahdin are made by Chippewa btw.
