    Be careful, only some danner boots are made in the USA. Most are Chinese just like pretty much everything else.

    I've had a couple pairs of both American and Chinese danners, but none of them seemed to fit my foot quite right either.

    Unfortunately true. All of the major U.S. boot and shoe manufacturers have multiple lines now. Redwing Heritage, Wolverine 1000mile etc. Chippewa and Danner have U.S. along with foreign-made lines as well. As with anything, a little research before a purchase and you'll be in good shape! I personally prefer to hit a brick-and-mortar as opposed to online retail just so I can try on a few pair in order to make sure the fit is correct. Just today I ordered a pair of U.S. made Danner Mountain Light II's in all black. Low, waterproof, able to wear year-round and also at work (which is why I went all black). I tried on a pair, had the shop order the same size in the color I wanted and will hopefully have them in a matter of 2-3 days.

    I bought a pair of Earthkeepers prior to getting on my U.S.made kick and I have to say they are a hell of a boot. Mine need to be re-soled but they are so broken in and comfortable that I don't want to give them up to a cobbler for a few days in order to do it. They're my beater boots now when I need to do yard work and don't need steel-toe. They're nice and lightweight.

    As of right now, my Wolverine Hikers, The only steel toed hikers I know of. When I'm off work, either a good mid-top hiker, or my North face Beal boots. Best boots I've ever owned. I too want a pair of Danner traditional hikers, but the close to $400 tag has held me back.

    Sorry for the "not so good" photo. Just moved to a new place. So everything is a mess at this point, even my ability to take good pictures but, I've got my custom whites smoke jumpers (i spend most of the time in them, working and going out, and whatever), New balance, source sandals ( yeah yeah, they are comfy and useful)

    Bostonian and Johnston & Murphy. I don't give air travel fornication where it is manufactured as long as I am satisfied with the product.

    Oboz Sawtooth. I like these as much as any shoes I've had in a long time.

    Yay, I'd love a pair of Whites Smokejumpers. Meanwhile I'll have to satisfy myself with these. They're tough Swedish army boots that cope very well with wet conditions.

    They are great. I was saving money to buy them for a long time, then had a good month, made some extra $$$ so decided to go for it. No regrets at all. When they came, I thought "o.... :censored:, how the :censored: Im going to break them in... " but it happened faster then I expected. Now they are almost broke in, fit my feet 100%, thats what you get when you order custom. I wanted to invest in boots that will last me as long as possible and will serve me for everything. I dont like having lots of stuff, be it clothes or shoes or any other "things".
    Your boots look very cool dude. Very similar to what we are issued in IDF, I too had the "red" boots, infantry, 3 years.
