Casual Work Boots For Men - Red Wing Work Boots

Updated on September 19, 2014

Casual Work Boots For All Occasions

Mens casual boots are no longer just for work. Today's casual work boots for men can be worn for just about any occasion.

The day I started wearing work boots was the day I joined the Army. Before that, if my feet had anything on them at all, it was flip-flops or tennis shoes. I did not know the true benefits of wearing a good pair of casual work boots.

"Putting on fierce boots is an instant pick-me-up". Nina Garcia

Did you know that a good pair of comfortable work boots for men will do more than last a long time? The support and protection you get from the right pair will also reduce foot, leg, and back pain.

One of the main reasons I like to wear boots is to avoid looking like the masses. So many people are like sheep and do not like being any different than the rest of the herd. But I found out that the world of fashion is insane. Sometimes you have to dress down, to dress up. Casual work boots for men can help you do just that.

Not only does a pair of men's work boots look good, they can give you the proper finishing touch to a rugged, manly ensemble.

Most Comfortable Boots On Earth

These Clarks Original Desert Boots have got to be the most comfortable boots for men that I have ever worn! Now I must admit, when I first saw them, I wasn't all that impressed...

My wife likes to dress me up a bit. Myself? I like the rugged look and tend to buy things that are practical and long lasting.

When I buy a pair of mens boots, casual is not the first thing I look for. The pair I look for are going to be the toughest ones I can find. She, on the other hand, likes me to look a bit more refined and classy.

They came to me as a Christmas gift from my wife. I'm a pretty good gift guesser, and at first I thought it was going to be a pair of shoes, because the gift box was so light. I tried to hide the perplexed look on my face when I opened the box and found these thin, light, dessert boots inside.

Needless to say, she could tell by the look on my face, I wasn't very sure about these new casual boots. She said, "Before you return them, at least try them on". I felt bad for looking disappointed. I thought I hid my feelings better than that and I didn't want her to feel bad for getting me a gift that I didn't think I would like.

I did as she said and slipped them on. It was like putting my hands in a velvet gloves. These things fit so well, I wore them all day as if they were slippers.

I may be rugged, but I am not an idiot. Comfort is king. I liked them so much, I now have a couple pairs of them. They come in a bunch of different colors and every time I put them on, I thank my wife for trying to dress me up a bit.

It's Good To Be The King

Mel Brooks did as he pleased as the King in the movie, History Of The World Part I. Every time he would defrock one of his frock, or pluck a grape from some fair maidens bosom, he would look straight into the camera and say, "It's good to be the king".

Though old Mel was just having a little fun with hedonism, he was right, it is good to be the king.

Did you know that you are the King of your world? You see the world as you want to see it and live your life the way you choose to live it.

You can choose to live it and see it through the eyes of a popper, scraping by and struggling to make it, or you can live it like the King that you are, and just enjoy every aspect of it as if it is all here for your pleasure. Because it is.

What does this have to do with work boots? Everything! There is nothing in this universe that is not for you. You are the honored guest at the feast of life. If it pleases you to have best work boots for the money, find a pair that is worthy of a King. For that is who you are!

American Made Work Boots

I didn't mean to go all "Dean Hunt" on you. He's a motivational speaker and co-author of the Chicken Soup series.

I was just thinking about how people tend to cubbyhole themselves into these little roles in life without looking at the the big picture of who they really are. People tend to put themselves down, and in so doing, never recognise how truly great they are.

Speaking of great, let's talk about American made work boots...

If I want the best watch, I look to the Swiss. If I am looking into leather, I think of Italy. But when it comes to who makes the best boots in the world, it is right here in the good old U.S. of A.

My favorite American made boot is The Iron Range, made by Red Wing. They are beautiful handcrafted boots from my home state of Minnesota. Not to mention they make some of the best work boots in the world...

A lot of celebrities wear these boots, but they only started wearing them after I did. The reason I like them so much is because they are very comfortable and they are named after the region of the state I come from; the iron range.

My family moved down here to Florida back in the 80's when the iron mines shut down. Now you couldn't drag me back up to that cold tundra with a team of Budweiser Clydesdale Horses. It is just way too cold.
