I have a unique challenge in that I have tiny feet. Like tiny man baby feet. Ha! Seriously I wear a size 5. Most of the sweet boots that I want, like RedWing Heritage start at a size 7 or higher. 

 

I did find a pair of Clark's Desert Boots that are pretty cool but not quite what I was after. 

 

Anyone out there know where I can get an awesome pair of Men's boots in size 5???

Have you tried looking at women's sizes? No joke. The designs between men and women for some brands like Docs are virtually identical. Not boots but K-Swiss had a pair of sweet sneaks that I got 4 pairs of all in different colors. They had one color not in my size so I got it in women's because it was the identical shoe.

Wow, sorry I missed this one!

 

Good call. 

 

Yes, actually almost ALL the shoes I wear, including the Clark's are women's. Or kids. Ha! I just really like the looks of RedWing Heritage boots and would love to find a way to get them in my size.

Contact Red Wing and ask them to make you some custom boots.

My problem is my feet run hotter than most so I can't wear "waterproof" or gtx anything without my feet getting overly sweaty.

 

I currently have McRae hot weather boots with side vents now that spring is here and the outsole is damn near indestructible.

 

takes awhile to break in, a couple blisters later and I'm in the clear now.

I definitely recommend 5.11 boots. I've been wearing a pair for 3 years now.

I needed new boots about two months ago, and decided to try out a pair of Lockport boat builders. I am now officially in love with those damned boots. From the second I put them on they were as broke in as an old T shirt. Soft leather, and the sole takes shock like a feather pillow.

Irish Setter Farmington STs for work, Salomon Authentic LTRs for everything else.

Oh and Tim Kramer, Broken Homme makes custom made boots for the same price as any other boot on the website. Might be worth checking out for you. https://www.brokenhomme.com/

I have a pair of Keen Gypsum mid top boots, they've been excellent. I can't do narrow toe boxes, so Keen shoes work perfectly for me, as there's a lot of room in the front. 

 

They're light as well.

I mentioned the Timberland boots in the other thread, but my next ones will definitely be some Danner Mountain Lights. I just love that design and they look great with jeans.

I think I already replied to this post but I couldn't see my pic...anyway. I have these exact boots. I wear them pretty much everyday during this tropical monsoon and I have had them up to 10,000 ft pretty recently. They are really not that heavy and insanely comfortable. My only complaint is the instep broke on my last hike but it has not been an issue. So again, big fan of danner. But you have to dig that retro look of these. Though I think I am going to buy a pair of Filson Uplander boots next

I recently just saw Under Armour release an updated pair of boots, I'm considering picking them up as I'm growing to like UA's quality these days for fitness wear and I don't want a full-on Danner-type military boot:

I picked these up in black about a month ago. They're incredibly comfortable.

I mentioned these Danner 600's http://www.danner.co...5/category/478/

in the shoe forum without noticing there was a separate boot discussion heading.

I have had the opportunity to get good use out of these in various weather conditions the past few weeks and am extremely happy with them.

They fit true to size and are very comfortable right out of the box.  

It has been cold and snowy recently here in New York and while not designed as a cold weather boot they performed well.  The sole was nice and grippy on packed snow.  The other week I wore them in 20 degree weather while  wearing a pair of mid-weight Woolrich socks.  Despite standing virtually still for over an hour watching my kid play hockey at an outdoor rink, I really did not start to feel the cold on my feet until around the last 15 minutes.

I have two pairs of Paladium boots which only get better the more I've worn them.  On Amazon for <$80, and they come in all leather (my personal preference), canvas, waxed canvas, or waterproof synthetic uppers.  Heavy treads, very little break-in time, and easily modifiable to make water-resistant.  I even added some DIY hobnails (carpet tacks) to make them usable in ice, which we get a lot of.  The pair pictured were originally the light tan "Sunrise" color, but I stripped and re-dyed them cordovan.

 

Although now made in Asian markets, Paladium was a French aircraft tire manufacturer that switched to footwear after WW2, when demand for war-ready aircraft tires plummeted.

Check out Blundstones.

I had a pair for years and wore them for everything. The smooth leather takes a shine and they look sharp year after year. I had the chunky sole model and accidentally set the sole on fire once while they were on my feet (long, dumb story) I stomped them out and continued wearing them for another 2-3 years. Love those boots!

I've been wearing leather work boots for 15 years now, gave up on the cheaper shoes.  Used to buy Danners but 4 years ago switched to Carolinas, a bit more comfortable and about the same wear, lasts for about a year.
