QFT, I love my Thorlos. After switching between 2 pairs almost every day for about a year they're finally starting to wear out. No actual holes yet but the toes and heals are starting to wear through.

Anyone know of a good place to buy 'em? I looked online and everywhere was about $10, same as in most stores.

No idea. They sure aren't cheap...$12-14 a pair around here. Let us know if you find a super deal anywhere.

Look awesome in my opinion but I bet they aren't as good as a nice pair of laced corcorans or matterhorns.

Get corcoran 3s, thats seriously one of the most comfortable combat boot you can possibly get.. the same style, except imagine only the toe and heal cap being leather, the rest is jungle style with nylon. However...if you're looking for alot of ankle support, any kind of jungle or marauder boot isn't what you're looking for.

In terms of getting a good ankle support boot (if that's what you're looking for), I'd go for the first ones you showed (take awhile to break in, but are great), or the Belleville/Bates new issue combat boot. IMO, Danner is alright, but you probably have no reason to buy an insulated boot, and if you're getting the new issue combat boot, a Danner one will be the same as a Belleville or Bates one, but like twice as much.

Really though... Corcoran 3s are amazing. I've tried 1s 2s and 3s on, and they're just totally kickass.

What exactly is a steel "shank"? Is that a different name for a steel toe or what?

steel shank is basicly a big hunk of metal they put in the base of the boot to lessen the effect of spike traps (punji traps) of the feet. IIRC

I wore a pair of those all the way through high school. The steel toe boots issued to the SeaBees. Had a new sole put on one year, but they lasted forever. Still in greatshape.
