I started in the Army, being issued the Belleville DST200 or 220. since they have been discontinued, I ordered the upgraded 300 DES ST for my civilian job that requires safety toe shoes. These are so much more comfortable and better built, I instantly threw out my 200 series and ordered another pair of 300s for fishing, hiking, chopping firewood and mowing the lawn, etc. I can wear these all day and have no problems with my feet hurting. They are not all insulated and don't get too hot to wear for longer periods of time. They are also light weight compared to many other boots I have tried. I even prefer to wear them out in town when I will be doing copious amounts of walking around.
