I frequently see posts about boot manufacturers and their latest creations and/or takes on old classics. Rarely, do I read anything about Danner boots, a company I think is up there with the best of them. I purchased my Danners (pictured below) in 1997. I have been wearing them a lot since our move to the Northwest. I have to say that I could not be more happy with a pair of boots. They stay warm when it is cold and keep the water out. The orthopedic insert in the heel makes them extremely comfortable. I even wore them to trek across Ireland several years back. I think they, along with stamps in my passport from countries throughout the Middle East, contributed to an extended stop and chat with the guards at the Northern Ireland border. I still haven't been down to the Danner Outlet Store in Portland. I am curious if anyone out there has been to it, and if it is worth checking out?
Danner provides a recrafting service that I might have to take advantage of one of these days to get them back to looking like this.
