    I just got a pair of Danner Mountainlight II's and so far I am extremely happy with them. They're only 5" high so they make good hikers, waterproof, Although I can't speak much for breath-ability as it's wintertime for me but even wearing thick wool socks and walking miles in them I never had any issues with them not being breathable.

    Nevermind, I should have read through the whole thread before I made a suggestion. Looks like you lucked out! Can't go wrong with Redwings, you'll have them for years. I love mine!

    The the Danners looks very good for hiking boots, and I might eventually get me some new boots for that purpose also. It has been a while since I saw stitched down hiking boots as well. The Red Wings will be my EDC boots, and even though they can probably stand a hike or two, I don't want to put them through it, and I also don't believe their the best choice. The Danners looks like they'r insulated or at least padded? Is that correct?

    No insulation, just a fabric lining and gortex membrane sewn to the leather upper. The Mountainlights are cut from a single piece of leather and they're also able to be resoled.
