Wore the Acadia 8" 200g Insulate everyday during my last 15 years of 35. These are the best boots ever and extremely comfortable. I can't see getting rid of them so they're going in for "re-crafting" to be my lifetime boots. Thanks Danner for supporting first responders.
One has a lump like a twisted sock near the ball of the foot. Purchased these due to a heel spur and so far has helped. Main reason I purchased them is because they are made in the USA, no more China junk !
Very comfortable boots if you get the right size. I’m normally a size 14, but these run big and I went with a size 13 which fits perfect. I initially tried a 14 and they were way too big. They also run a bit narrow. My foot is slightly narrow and the medium width fit perfect. I tried a pair in narrow width and they were way too tight.
This is my 5th pair of Danners and all still wearing during different seasons and weather conditions. My all leather 200 denier Olympus was purchased 1998 and you read it right. 1998. They were my winter boots until I moved to Arizona. My Non insulated Arcadia was purchased in 2005 and still used in the summer for motorcycle riding. The new Arcadia and my 2 other brown pairs are used when wearing brown color coordinated outfits. 1 non insulated and 1 200 denier insulated. I am totally satisfied and would not purchase any that are throw always after they wear. Danners are the best foot wear you can buy and recrafted. This is a testament of American made products.
I bought a pair back in 93 before they were issued. My 1stSgt hated that I wore them but they were better than the combat boots. I still have the same pair which I need to get new soles put on them. As long as water don't go over the top, your feet stay dry and warm. Best investment
I currently wear the Danner Tachyon boots for the warmer weather and they are good for patrol.So I bought the Acadias for the winter since they have a great reputation in law enforcement . I wear custom orthotics in the Acadia so I have good arch support which allows me to stand for long periods of time (They came with plastic inserts). The Acadia 200G are insulated so it keeps my feet warm. BUT you might be in for a rough start with the Acadia boots. I thought the Danner Tachyon’s tight toe box was brutal, the Acadia’s are just as bad, because the boot isn’t flexible they will be a nightmare to break in. I condition the Acadia boots every day with hopes of softening the boot for relief in the toe box. For the amount I paid I’ll give it a chance, I can’t wait until it breaks in. I hope lives up to it’s impressive reputation in the law enforcement community.
Runs about 1/2-1 full size larger than most other boots, but that’s pretty typical of Danner. Good, quality staple boot that’ll last. I got the 200g, just to try them out. Unless you’re outside all of the time, I would get uninsulated. 200g is Warmer than most others...might be a breathability factor coupled in with this.
Bought these boots after my Bates failed miserably in under 6 months. I'll never buy a different pair for the rest of my career. Top notch boot for patrol; it's warm, comfortable, and keeps your feet dry. Worth every penny.
The quality is supreme, of the highest order, and will last a long time. I'm not a big fan of the kletterlift outsole since it's not good for freezing weather and ice, but you can always resole them so not that big a deal. Other than that, very comfortable, built like a tank, and should last you 20 years if you take care of it
Been wearing these boots for about a week now. They are incredibly uncomfortable. After reading so many reviews about how comfortable they are, I am disappointed to say the least. Not to mention I spent over $300 for these boots. They dig into my feet in both the heels as well as tongue of the boot. Hopefully they will break in more as time goes on. If I decide to keep wearing them, I will post a second review. But so far...Danner is not a boot I will be buying again.
15 years of wearing Acadia 200gr in Michigan weather. I can not say enough great things about the boots. Only resoled once. 50 to 60 hour work weeks (8 to 16 hour days)in law enforcement with these boots. Boots are beyond repair now so have to replace them. Im sure my next Arcadia should last ten years till retirement. I liked the boots so much I purchased the same style in brown a few years ago. Still holding strong.
These are my 3rd pair of Danner Acadia's. First two pairs are 7 years old and are in excellent condition. Danners are expensive, however they are a very good investment for your feet. Top quality materials with excellent craftsmanship.
I’ve spent 16 years law enforcement, I’ve worn every brand of boots there are. I could never find anything that lasted or were comfortable. Working 12 hour days my feet would kill me by the end of my shift. I decided it was time to treat myself and try these. I couldn’t be happier, they are a little heavy at first but I got used to them. I wished I would of bought these along time.
I have worked as a patrol deputy for over 20 years in South Carolina. Our department issues 1 pair of work shoes/boots per year with a cap on price. We are allowed to pay the difference if we chose foot ware that is over the allowable amount. I had always went with the department price point until I grew tired of wearing inferior boots that kept my feet hot, cold or wet depending on the weather. Plus living in South Carolina we get the four seasons of the year with plenty of rain throughout the year. Some of my fellow platoon partners were wearing and raving about their Danner boots, which got me to research the Danner boot company. Another point that made me go to Danner was how they could go hours on end standing on your feet with minimal fatigue to your feet and legs. Although the price made me have second thoughts I could not find any faults in the boot. Plus being able to have all my questions answered by my fellow workers with hardly any negative feedback was enough for me to bite the bullet and pay the difference for the Arcadia boots. My Arcadia's are going on year 18 with one resole during that time. I have retired now but my Arcadia's are still what I wear when I'm doing my outside work and just knocking around. I just don't keep'em spit shined any more. This Danner boot was one of the best investments I ever made and I tell everyone to buy Danner because they are worth every penny.
Throughout my 21 years in the military I have wore my fair share of boots. My Danner Acadias have by far been my favorite pair of boots. I purchased the 200 insulated Acadias and have worn them without issues in Portland, OR and New Orleans. They were a little stiff at first, but the break-in period was fast and simple. I make sure to use the black. Pot dressing about once a month instead of traditional polish and they still look great! I would definitely recommend these boots!
As a deputy sheriff, I've worn Danner Acadias for years as my duty boots. In my opinion, they're the best boot period. I finally tested just how waterproof they are last week. While trying to assist a calf moose stuck in a fence, I had to run through twenty feet of standing water, six inches deep, twice! I waited for the cold wetness to seep in but my feet remained completely dry and warm. Well worth the money!
I have been wearing all three weights of the Arcadia line from Danner for my 13yrs in Law Enforcement. I have tried many others and have always come back to the best boot, Danner, which always keep my feet warm, dry and safe from the many work hazards I encounter daily.
As a paramedic working with the BC Ambulance Service in Metro Vancouver I needed a good quality boot that would last and stand up to my work environment. The past three years I have worn these boots working non stop 12 hour shifts (up to 16 at times) and have absolutely nothing but good things to say. Sure the break in period is long, but once you break these boots in they are extremely comfortable and fit like a sock. These boots continue to look great with some basic maintenance with leather conditioner and shoe polish. I have worked in all sorts of weather conditions and they really have proven to stay water proof. Once when I was doing a call in a creek up to my knees and my feet stayed dry. I recommend these boots to anyone working in emergency health services and have recently bought a second pair of Danner boots for work, the recons, another quality boot.
I have had my pair of Danner Acadia's for over 3 years, and just now, they are starting to show their age. I have worn them in any weather condition and they have never let me down. They are the most comfortable boot that I have worn. I would highly recommend these boots for anyone in the Law Enforcement, Fire, or EMS fields.
I have been wearing these boots 11 hours a day 4 days a week for 16 years and im due for a second re craft. I started off my career wearing 6 inch boots and switched to these after 4 years and several pairs trying different companies until I found these. A good three season boot. I added Fort Lewis 600g to the winter rotation. Maybe these in a 400g would be good in colder climates im in NJ.
A little expensive, but well worth it, my first pair lasted 3 yrs of heavy use in the Marine Corps. Just picked up a new pair with 200g thinsulate, nicely broken in by day 2. If you maintain these boots(cleaning & polishing) these boots will last. I treat all my boots with mink oil (helps waterproof the leather) 2 times before I wear them, then weekly after that.
A speed lace system would be nice on the upper 5 lace holes
I purchased these boots in 1998 for the police academy, wore them on the streets for two years, and still use them around the farm. Not everyday anymore, but they are still going strong 14 years later!!! I'll never wear anything else at work. I ask for the Acadia's by name when getting new work boots. Danner, don't change a thing, keep up the great product!
