Boot to the head: find me good work boots
December 10, 2012 11:06 AM Subscribe
I am female and I work mainly outside as a gardener. I want to get two pairs of work boots, one for warm weather and one for cold weather. Can you give me recommendations for one or both of those pairs of boots?

These will be for daily wear and I'll be beating the crap out of them so they'll need to be sturdy. Each pair should be water resistant - I will be using irrigation and working in the rain during the summer and outside in the snow/sleet/rain during the winter. I have fairly average length and width feet (8.5 USA Women's size and medium width) so I am not terrifically worried about wide toe boxes. I do not pronate significantly.
I'm not adverse to steel toes at all, and they're probably a good safety feature, but you can persuade me in either direction.
I'd like them to be fairly light, but am hoping that they'll last longer than the pair of Timberland Pro's that ended up with cracks in the soles in less than a year.
I do not want to spend much more than $200 unless there's a really compelling reason to do so.
Thanks for the advice.
