I'm going to buy a new pair of boots and was wondering what everybody likes. I've done a search on boots and everybody has their opinions on tech 8's and 6's was wondering if it's still a bad opinion(soft soles). any opinion on any other boot is good to. I have a pair of gaerne's now that I've had for 10 years but it's time to retire them. I'll have the retirement ceremony this week I hope..
