    I have a pair of Rocky boots that I wear while on duty and I love them. I work for a beach police department so they're always getting wet, sandy, and salt all over them and they've always held up. Top notch boots in my opinion...

    Danner makes a very high quality boot... Unfortunately it didn't fit my foot very well.

    I currently wear Lowa duty boots (Lowa primarily makes high quality hiking/mountaineering boots, and I was familiar with the company from my experiences in those sports).

    My boots were around $180, are goretex lined, spit shine perfectly (if you do that sort of stuff), and have lasted me for two full years since I bought them (though the sole is starting to approach the end of it's useful life).

    Very light very comfortable, actually have lasted me longer than any other boot so far (over 1.6 years). Water proof very nice.
    I have two pairs of these.

    Bates Ultra Lite Enforcer Side Zips. One pair is about a year old and the others are from 2004. They are still in service.

    Most of the time though, I just wear these:

    I wear Converse 8-inch side zip boots with the safety toe. They are very comfortable - almost like wearing sneakers. They're a little warm in the summer months and I like to keep the zippers open sometimes for extra ventilation.

    I've had mine about a year and a half and have been happy with them, although now some pieces of vinyl trim on the boots are starting to come off.

    FYI, I bought them at bootbay.com - Decent prices and (at least when I ordered them) no tax and no shipping charges. They seem to carry about any type of boot imaginable.
    Never have so many owed so much to so few.

    Bates Ultra Lite Enforcer Side Zips is what I have now and I love them.
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
