Danner makes some high fucking quality boots. They are definitely a serious step up from Red Wings.my last 2 pair of boots have been a pair of the 10" logger hathorns. they break in well and quick. very sturdy. good stitching. made for wildland fire fighters. but now I have a pair of Danner flash point II's. fucking amazing boots. google it. they are rad. wildland firefighter boots again. with a sort of vibram rubber sole material around the base of the boot. over the leather. both are kinda spendy but well worth it.
Not knockin' at all dude. I hate walking under a full pack in boots unless it's muddy or snowing or something. I wear sneakers too when I'm not barefoot or wearing my rope sandals. But I have a pair of veg shoes, and I'd suggest these Ice Patrols for you ShoestringI know I'll get knocked for this, but my converse all stars are still holding up pretty good. ha

I've heard that goretex loses its waterproof when dirty, Have you had any experience with this?i have a pair of gortex lined, Danner, ft lewis boots. i paid more for them than any other 2 pair of shoes/boots i have ever had. got them in 1988 at fort bragg, while in the 82nd. i know for sure that i have marched over 700 miles while in the army, and have worn them every winter including this one. swear to god, they still have the original laces! no crap! mink oil and kiwi shoe wax has kept the leather lasting 20 years so far. this spring they will be hitting the rails with me
how many of you have footwear that has been on both coasts(and oceans) mexico, canada and alaska? better shut up before they end up in my mouth.:soldier:
