Default Would you say Amazon is a good place to buy boots?

or shoes in general? I'm looking to buy some decent work boots but Timb's are going for like $80+~. Seems a little bit over priced for internet shopping, right?

any better place to buy?

Redwings Boots.

Thank me later and you will never get anything else.

I am planning to get a pair to just rock.

You're not going to get anything that is good from Timberland to work in. Not for $80 because real working boots cost more than that.

Thanks i'll look for one of these.

I did some more looking on Amazon and some of those prices seem outrageous. I swear i've seen like half some of them prices when i was at the shoe store last time.

yeah i wanted to get Timb's since i know they're quality. I was thinking Caterpillar which look pretty heavy duty too.

If you have a Redwings store near you, leather shoe laces are free for a lifetime of the boots. You get new laces and they oil up your boots and keep them soft for you for free.

People usually buy two pairs, if they need them for work. So they can wear one of them while they oil your boots and change your laces for you. One of the perks of owning this brand of boot and it's made in America.

The English gave us the Brogue shoes. Americans brought the world, the working boot.

Redwing is pretty pricy, everyone I know that has them say they're worth it though. Some companies offer a boot allowance though, which is nice. I only ended up paying $30 for my steeltoes after my work reimbursed $120.

listen to this person. don't fukk around with boots or any type of shoe you know you might be on your feet for hours.

take your ass to the store and find one that makes your soles happy. cuz when your soles is happy, your knees, back spine etc. will be grateful.

Amazon is good to buy almost everything. They usually have free returns and exchange. Just make sure the order is being fulfilled by Amazon and not some other vendor. For any type of footwear you should always go in store though, unless you don't mind the hassle of shipping and returning a pair if you don't like them.

I'm not sure you're going to find good work boots for $80.

Zappos doesn't specialize in work boots, but they have a bunch and they are a great place to buy shoes. Very easy return policy

I would take a look at these. I have some urban-hiking-around-town from Keen's and they are very very good.

Good for what? Working in? Hell no. Timbaland boots serve no function realistically.
