On going at the moment.
Redwings are a nice boot, but disposable, I got about a year out of a set of lace up packers. No comparison between Whites and Redwings though. Whites are super heavy duty
Whites are very heavy duty and rebuild able. I have one set going on 4 years; the other is new at maybe 6 months. About every other time you get your Whites resoled they will go in and redo all the arches and replace what needs fixing.
I personally hate Danners just because they do not fit my feet. That and the goofy liner inside some models is not attached to the bottom of the boot and can cause hot spots. I work with a ton of guys that love them but I won’t waste any more money on them.
Before Scarpa chopped their US line that is the only boot I would wear. I had two sets one lasted 10 years and the other lasted about 9 years. I have plans to get a friend of mine in Europe to send me some from over there where they have a much better selection.
