Exclusively Danner boots. These 2 are what I wear exclusively. Picked them up on deep discount "B stock" from the Portland Oregon store over Christmas break. I have a non standard sized foot and thankfully Danner makes boots that actually fit me.

Hikers for me, similar to a boot but light enough to keep you from getting tired

Ive been wearing Doc Marten industrial boots for the past 7 years for work. I think im ready for my first pair of Danners. Ive been doing a lot of research, and I like the Super Quarry, and Super Rain Forest, but neither are made in the US, and the reviews aren't impressive. So back to the original ones I saw, the Acadia steel toe. Think thats my #1 pick. Now I just have to find the best place to order em from

Customized Nike Shocks With steel toe! It would be better if they were water proofed but i dont go jumpin' in puddles too much so they are alright!

i went ahead and got some Lawngrips again. I said i would never buy another pair as they did not last as long as they cost. although that may be true, they are as i remember as being the most comfortable , stable and protective footwear i have ever worn for working in lawns etc. they get super traction, are light, have wide toe area with steel toe, and the leather and craftsmanship are very well done.

it is the sole that wears out as it does not have a deap tread so there is not much to go through. i have conversed with them a bit about this but they dont seem to wnat to change anything so........ i just wish the sole treads were a bit deaper to last longer, at least one season for me.

I do recommend them, and wanted to get the brutus, but backorder and need for boots got me the nest in line, the 8 in pro model i have had b4.
