Almost a perfect boot
on August 1, 2014
I decided to wear these boots for a full year before reviewing them, and I'm glad I did. I am a land surveyor and I've had these boots on my feet for 45-55 hours per week ever since I got them. I've worn them through many different terrains ranging from asphalt to mountains and everything in between, including snow. What makes them almost perfect is that they have held up extremely well and really don't show a year's worth of wear. They have been very comfortable since day one, which is a huge plus for me, and are relatively light weight. The sole is still in good shape with plenty of tread left. Nothing has broken, cracked or come unstitched. Now for the bad part. When the boots were about 7-8 months old, both boots started to leak dirt (and water) from the toe where the rubber meets the leather. My Dad also bought these boots for work and his did the same thing at around the same time frame. This is a pretty big disappointment because if it weren't for this problem, I could honestly say that I would not buy another boot. If Danner could fix this problem, they would have a home run with this boot. I don't think they would even have any competition until you reached the $250-$300 range.
