Work Shoes/Boots

Im looking for the best Work Shoe or Boot that i can use for work. I occasionally work in an inch deep of water from time to time so it has to be waterproof. Im constantly walking around, bending down ect. so it has to be somewhat comfortable and flexible. Im hoping to spend about $100. Any suggestions on what to buy and where?

And I'd go for the boots around $150-$170. There's a world of difference, and if you're going to be wearing them for 8+ hours a day, you're better off skipping a couple dinners out and get some boots that are actually comfortable and supportive.
Studies show 100% of people die.. Might as well have some fun.

Blundstones are my favorite boots, ever. Lightweight, steeltoes with kevlar shank. I stomp all over in mud and water all the time 1" and more. Also, slipons! I think they go for $180

But, if you really want to go full waterproof. For more hardcore days I wear my heavy duty gumboot steeltoes by Dakota. I think I paid over $200 when they were on sale.

You can't cheap out on good workwear. You really do get what you pay for and you will be using them every day.

Sometimes I work around cheap people who buy crap steeltoe workboots and they just put plastic bags inside their boots to keep dry. You don't want to be that guy.
