Danners are great, got a pair of Ft.Lewis boots
I’ve worn for 20 years.
Just bought a pair of Bates RAT boots, pretty
comfortable, although I had to replace the upper
eyelets with hooks, Did the same with the Danners too,
just like them more.
The Rat boots are good but rather soft sided.
The Ft.Lewis have served me well and are excellent
in mountainous terrain, stiffer.
Both have Vibram soles.
I wear out a pair of Vibram soles in a maximum of two years. How many times have you resoled these Danners? Mind you, I'm not doubting that they're good boots, I'm just trying to compare the value to the Wesco's I'm wearing now, as I can rarely resole them more than once. I do firefighting and logging among other things. Heat is hell on boots.
