For the casual roofer and landscaper...
I'm a fan of these Caterpillars. If only they are a little more durable.
Being a contractor, I have to be a sort of a Jack of all trades. I don't spend eight hours a day on my knees re-shingling old roofs, but I need to be up there to know what's going on. These shoes are perfect for that because the eyelets go down so low that the lacing distributes the tension evenly, so your shoes are as tight as they can be without putting rope burns on your feet. Only thing is that the leather is not quite as tough as the Thorogood roofers, so if your kneeling for an extended amount of time, you risk tearing up the leather eventually. So if you're an actual roofer, and not a tourist like me, you're probably better off with actual roofer boots.
