It's time for me to get a new pair, and I'm curious as to what y'all wear. I currently have a pair of Rocky's version of the Danner Acadia. I like them, but the leather has stretched enough that they're no longer serviceable. They've been resoled a couple times. I don't want a zipper boot, because the boot is useless if you blow the zipper out.
You said no zipper, but I love my 5.11 8 inch atac's. I'm really rough on my stuff, and have been wearing them as my daily shoe/boot for about 8 months now with no issues. and 5.11 has a great warranty.
