Apparently Danner's current firefighting boot is Flashpoint II
at $350, a bit steep considering its estimated useful life. Seeing as I'm not jumping out of airplanes, I'll stay with killing a set of cheaper boots at a sixth of the price at about the same frequency.

Wow, that is pricy. Nowadays I have to wear steel-toed boots at work & usually go with Georgia or Iron Age. They last several years, and break-in isn’t too bad. I think it was mopping up that really killed the old Danners. Water plus ashes makes a form of lye, and when it’s also hot, you just can’t put sufficient grease on your boots to keep them from cracking.
