5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable boot, January 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Danner Men's Acadia Uniform Boot (Apparel)
I purchased a pair of Bates lace to toe boots a few years ago and have worn them until the leather cracked. The biggest reason why I purchased the Bates (which are similar to these Danners) is because of the ability to have them resoled. However, I cannot send the boots back to Bates to be resoled, I had to find a cobbler in the area who could resole the boots. Because I cheat when shining the boots the leather eventually cracked.

I've wanted a pair of Danner's for quite some time. I have only worn them on shift four times and the boots are comfortable for being brand new and the thickness of the leather. I used neatsfoot oil on the boots before wearing them to help soften the leather just a little bit. Obviously they were stiff when wearing them the first time, but they are breaking in the more I wear them.

I spit shine the boots and the toe of the boots hold the shine really well. Plus it doesn't take much to put a shine on them either. I typically brush shine every where else. The instep of the boots are a little difficult to brush shine, so I have to hold the brush a little differently. Otherwise, they brush shine and spit shine really well and very easily.

The soles of the boots are quiet when walking on lenolium, tile or even the wood laminate floors (they don't squeak) and I have a heavy foot step so the soles of the boots make my footstep very quiet when completing building searches. I haven't run in the boots yet and don't know how they will react to running, but I'm certain they will be ok. The soles are wider than the boots because of the construction and if you're not careful about where you step, you may catch the sole on something. Otherwise they are an excellent pair of boots.

Plus, I can send them back to Danner to be reworked!
