Where are you guys getting these at? My merrell sawtooth are getting old (I'm on my third pair)?

any leads on a non retail price on these? 

I love love love my 4Ds but they arent Sawtooths.  More comfortable but not as durable.

STANDEASY - BLUF - looking for a comfortable warm weather (East Coast) work boot.

I recently wore my regular XA 3Ds the first day of a rifle course.  My feet were killing me after the first day.  On the second day I switched to my old Rocky S2Vs which were a little better.  I pulled out my Promotive Qwest 4Ds (goretex) for the third day and did not have any problems.  I usually wear these during winter and was worried about breathability but did not notice any issues despite the warm weather last week.

Is the cushioning on the Forces XAs comparable for the Forces Qwest version or should I go with the  Qwest?

There's not much in it due to the 2018 improvements but if I had to go with one over the other for long-term comfort and cushioning  I'd go with the Quest.  The XA forte is lightness and agility. Just my opinion.

Black6, I have both.  I run the Quests in the winter and the XA's in the warmer months and second Standeasy's comment about comfort.  While I feel the XA's are plenty comfortable enough for every day patrol work, I prefer the Quests for things where support/odd terrain may be an issue.  The one trade off is weight.  My Quests are noticeably heavier than my XA's.  Its a "relative" heavier though.  They're much lighter than any of the Danner, Belleville, etc. I've worn over the years.

Thanks DEVILDAWG77.  I have a set of goretex mid XAs I use during winter that I’ll pull out this week to try.  I have a sneaking suspicion I’ll be doing the AR15.com thing and buying both.

I was exited to try a pair of the SpeedCross 4 Wide... They're not wide. All my other footwear from Bates, Belleville, Danner, Blackhawk, etc are wide when they say wide. Otherwise, they seemed really nice.

Experticity, I think Merrell is 40-50% off
