   I was happy to see Redwing get early recommendations.  I've got three pairs 
now, and have been wearing Redwings for ...geeze, 36 years.  My favorites for 
work have been resoled about 20 times, had patches applied to the toes so I can 
crawl around in caves, and a patch along one side since my broken feet don't 
flex quite right.  Can't beat a completely rebuildable U.S. made boot.  They're 
an investment, and worth every penny.  

   For more waterproof and warm, even when you get icy water inside, I really 
like Matterhorn's.  They're also U.S. made, Gortex lined (so that cold water 
warms up around your feet like you were wearing a wet suit), but a bit heavy 
and clunky for every day civilian wear.  If you live outdoors in the winter 
they're great.
