Dr's basically said that when your shoes start to get nice and comfy, it's probably because they are wearing out, time for new ones

Sounds like your doctors are sadists.

Keith it looks like you got 7 months of wear and tear on them. With my bad feet, my doctor and podiatrist have told me to get new shoes for every 6 months of wear. If you wore these daily and worked in them 6-7 days a week (brewer's hours, right) I don't think you can expect more out of a pair of boots. When I worked on my feet 60-70 hours a week in restaurant kitchens, I bought new red wing boots at least every 6-8 months. Just my .02, it's never fun to have soakers though.

That was my first thought too.  In my past lives I've never gotten 7 months out a pair boots I wore 5 or 6 days a week.  People typically wear a pair of shoes way longer than they should.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

They're in cahoots with the shoe companies I guess

Anyone looking for some good rubber steel toe boots for brewing check out shoes for crews guardian IV, changed glycol lines today from an old set up to a trunk set up and the boots didn't slide at all very comfortable only thing that time will tell is how long they hold up,   But solid boot for the dollar price
