I recently purchased a set of Merrell Sawtooth boots for work. I've been wearing them now for a little over two weeks and I'm very happy with them.
Construction is solid. The tread is aggressive yet doesn't make noise on hard surfaces. Wear, so far, on the treat walking on carpet, concrete, asphalt, and dirt/rocks is minimal yet the tread is pretty soft. I haven't seen any chunks missing. The upper is a rough out leather. The inside is lined with soft material. Retail price on these is in the mid $100s. I purchased mine online for about $100 shipped. They weight about 3.0 lbs.
