Onlineshoes.com is selling these Dr. Martens oxford steel-toed shoes for $80. I’ve been wearing this style for the past ten years or so, and my second pair is on its last legs.
I’m posting this for two reasons: to let you know about a good deal, and to ask if anyone has any better suggestions for a steel-toed shoe. While my Doc Martens have held up ok, I’ve noticed that the sole tends to crack at the arch (both pairs I’ve had have done this), and they aren’t as comfortable as I’d like when standing for long periods. That said, they’re much better than the steel-toed oxfords I’ve bought at Payless!
