    I like the Ecco track 2 with the buff color rubber sole and have been wearing them for years. It has the best wet traction I have ever had in a boot and seem to last forever. I have had the same pair for the last 8 years and only recently felt that I needed to replace them with a new pair. Mostly for cosmetic reasons than anything else.

    What do you all wear when out in the field?
    That's a good point Scott, they are important and not to be underestimated. I use a pair of boots I bought when I was in the Marines in 1960 ( they let you buy your own if you wished ) and they are still going strong, and are still comfortable, which is more than you can say for the owner.

    Timberland for hiking and any kind of work in an industrial area where you may have to worry about sharp objects on the ground.

    For just working in an urban envrionment or not to far from the car, I usually wear New Balance, only because they are simply the most comfortable for long walking.

    I'm another vote for Merrells. They're so comfortable that I was hiking in them the day after I bought them with no problems. Great hikers.
