Much better longevity than danners and same no break in time. I beleive these boots can be picked up for about $120. Maybe cheaper since army has gone to a tan suede. The bellevilles are black and gor-tex lined. When these finally wear out I not rest until I find another pair. With a good pair of wool socks I could hike/hunt all day on snow in 15 degree weather.
Those crappy things were really stiff and chewed my feet up worse than anything.

The old 'baby killer' green jungle boots were the goods.

Vasque hiking boots are great.

Danner is one of the best boots on the market . I have Danner Men's Tachyon . I strongly advice it . It is constructed out of waterproof full-grain leather and a 100% waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex liner that is designed to keep your feet dry and comfortable when the weather or environment is not. For comfort, these boots are equipped with an EVA midsole for cushioning and shock absorption qualities, which mean the boots take the abuse and not the person wearing them, plus they feature a polyurethane footbed that allows for adequate airflow

Newby, it isn't good manners to revive a thread that's been dead for a few months. This one was last active in 08.

Anyway, drop over and leave an introduction, if you haven't yet. And, welcome aboard.

Are you after the quality of boot or keeping your feet dry?

I recently gave up looking for nice quality boots that keep your feet dry and went for durable boots with water proof socks.

Lol... joins up in 2017 to post something from 2008 about Danner boots... okay.....

Anyways... does anyone here prefer low cut boots/shoes for hunting?... I LOVE my trail runners, but I've never been one for ankle support.
I have some muck boots I use in the snow, but otherwise it's Merrill for me.

I had red wings for years, then found out the timberland pro... keep in mind I'm talking about a work boot here, not hunting.

But these things are awesome!... they're alloy toe shoes... light as a tennis shoe.

Most of my coworkers switched to them after I got my pair.
