    I have had 3 pairs of wolverines and all 3 times the soles have screwed up. I need something waterproof and comfortable any information would help thanks.

    Red Wings are the same as Irish Setters.
    I don't think you'll regret buying them.

    I had redwings and gave them away. They have very little support and killed me to walk around in em

    I like the irish setter but they are what I would consider hot. We own a boot store and sell alot of thorogoods the trades people seem to really like them.

    Steel toe or non? Tread or no tread? Check out Justin and Thorogood.

    My justin’s are beat to shit, nonsteel toe, and i need a new pair if they still make any usa made slip ons.
    Im uncertain about the tread on the non-steeltoe thorogoods, so i bought steel toe. Im still looking for the same tread in non steeltoe. I dont know about the white soles, they look too slick to me. 3C06C1B8-D7C1-4ACE-960B-F0066672FC66.jpeg 37628598-3356-40AF-B7B6-F4442867D591.jpeg

    I don’t like the steel toe because it rubs the tops of my toes.So I think you said the thorogoods don’t make a non steel toe slip on?

    The tread might be fine but seems like it needs to be deeper to me. Not sure about white either.
    If i cant find what i want in thorogood i will get these usa made Justin’s (added the water proof one) the Justin’s have always fit my feet well but while these are made in the usa, most are not. And ive been trying to avoid companies that are in bed with the Chinks.

    I’m not much on them and yes white doesn’t look all that great.

    I have had several Wolverines...comfy as hell. Soles all cracked 2/3 the way up. But man they were comfy

    What model were you using? I have owned 4-5 pairs of Wolverine Raider Wellingtons with durashok soles. I go through a pair about every year and a half. Never had any sole issues besides wearing down eventually.

    Curious of same......I've got a pair of Wolverine Wellingtons and absolutely love them ! Having said that, they are less than 1 year old, so may have similar issues down the road. My first pair of slip ons.

    Check out Keen work boots. Comfortable from day one. I’d bet that over half of the workers where I’m at wear them. These are the steel toed ones too.
