Picked up these boots back in November for just over $100, I would compare these to some boots over $200

Everyone's feet are different, personally I have tried carolinas and you get what you pay for. Red wings used too be a good boot as well, not so much anymore. It's hard to find a good pair of boots that last a year.
I had the same issue i went to work specialty type store and could not find expensive boots just everything under $100.
I bought Chippiwa ( spelling) I am happy with them but the selection of quality boots is slim .
I would rather spend $300 and have them for 5 years than $100 and get uncomfortable.
Agreed, depending on what you do for a living you need good footwear. I spend 80% of my time walking through mud, rock dust and shot rock. There are some comfortable brands that will hold up better then others but not by a large margin. Kenetrek,White and Hoffman are decent but pricey.
