    Do you get to choose? My academy only gave me two options - a pair of Danners or a pair of Thoroghgoods.

      Like it was said above do you have a choice? If you are hired by a department you probably will have some sort of initial issue but if you are putting yourself through and have the funds Danners are good and will last. If you don't have the money for those grab some Bates they still hold a decent shine and should last the academy. Regardless you better get some that shine and learn how to polish boots or you will be hating life.
      Where'd you learn that, Cheech? Drug school?

        We had to buy choroframs, those really shiny jobs. When they got tore up, we had to buy another pair.

        The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                I went with 5.11 boots. Chose waterproof ones that were nice and light. Not sure the exact model of the 5.11 boots but they were roughly $130.

                Having wet feet is baddddd

                  Oh and make sure to get boot polish!!! Polished boots on the first day is a must! For a brush and polish at walmart will run you $10 total. Will last you about 2 months if you shine your boots twice a week
