    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?

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

    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.

    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.
