Yeah… that's a great question!
Since I wear suits more often then jeans, I think it'll be my Alden 401 or the Wolverine Krause. I've been wearing my Alden Boots daily, as my "go to", right-out-the-door wear boots and love them… but I still feel myself "wanting" to baby them, even though I don't.
The Wolverine 1000 Mile Krause Boot is so comfortable, solid, and feels more like a "get sh*t done" kinda boot. My Alden Boots get lots of attention and compliments for being stylish… but whenever I'm walking on the beach, in sand, mud… I'm thinking to myself "I'd rather be wearing my Wolverines" ...
So they are my tie for 1st.
2nd are definitely My Red Wing Boot (9015)… they are GREAT, just a bit stiff during the "break-in" period. Whenever I am wearing jeans, I'm almost always in Red Wing Boots.
My ranking (as of today):
1a. Alden = Dress/Formal Style Compatibility
1b. Wolverine Krause = slightly less of the above + Comfort and Solid
2. Red Wing 9015 = with jeans, 100% Solid, Tough,
3. Red Wing 8130 = same as the above with a bit more comfort due to the sole.
4. Wolverine Rockford
5. Allen Edmonds Long Branch
