I've always worn the hunting/combat style boots since starting riding, and have had the (USA) army-issue Matterhorn boot. Made in the USA, in PA. It has a non-steel hard toe, and is waterproof, even when standing in water for a long time. The only real waterproof boot I've ever owned, even though most of mine were labeled as such.
Matterhorn has an insulated version, and also has a "chain saw" boot which is layered with 7 layers of Kevlar and is also waterproof. I like these type boots as you can wear them to ride and then walk/hike comfortably if you want.
Saves on taking an extra pair of shoes along.
