I have 5 pairs of Danners now. Acadia, Recon 200g, Acadia 400g, Light II’s and Skyridge. The 650 last that the Acadia, Light and several other styles are built on is imho one of the best boot designs ever made. There is no better duty boot out there for LE. I’ve tried them all over my many years. My recons have made the trip home for a resole and came back better than they were when new. I wear the lights most of the year as an everyday boot and the three Acadia series daily at work. Recons in spring and fall, Acadia in the dead heat of summer, and Acadia 400g in the bitter cold of winter. My feet are always comfortable, dry, and protected in my Danners. If your reading my review, stop hesitating, stop buying throw away boots, and buy a pair of Acadias. They’re more than worth the money, and they’re a legacy boot that will last you many years if not your whole career in LE if you take care of them.
I’ve purchased many pairs of these fine American made boots. They are by far superior to boots I’ve used in the past. There is very little break in, and quality of the products used are top notch. I’m glad to be an American, and proud to have the flag on my boots, thanks Danner for setting the bar!
This is my second pair, they are by far the warmest work boots I've ever owned. Wish they were a sliver wider even the wide size for those of us with wide flat feet.That said I intend to purchase additional pairs for home and the non-insulated pair for the warmer season.
I love these things but was waiting for colder weather before wearing daily. Been wearing daily for 3-4 days now. No major complaints, but, I do find that with thickest Darn Tough wool socks my feet do tend to sweat a bit. Nothing major but enough that I did decide to buy a PEET Boot dryer to aide in drying the boots out overnight. Also, the little Airthotics are ok but I find they tend to slide forward a lot while sliding the boot on. Something I have to kind of kick the heel of the boot on the floor a few times to get the airthotic to settle into place.
But I do love the boots. Wanted a good, well made cold weather boot and that’s exactly what I got. These should last me for years considering I will only wear them in the coldest part of winter.
These boots are a birthday present for my husband. He swears by these boots. He purchased his first and only pair in 1991, and they still look great today. He wears them everyday!! The only reason for this pair: didn't know what else to get him for his birthday that he hadn't already received in the last 10 years of genuine quality. I know this pair will last just as long as the first pair.
I as given a pair of the Acadia boots by a close friend who was a Navy SEAL. When he left the service he had several pair, and one for some reason were too tight when he tried on, and he passed them to me.
They are the most amazing hunting boot I've owned, the ankle support, comfort and water resistance are excellent. They are not a light weight boot like the Danner Pronghorns I also own, but the small amount of extra weight is well worth it.
In a way I wish they were available in brown and not black, but after wearing them so many times, the deer, wild pigs and other prey I hunt don't seem to mind.
Had a pair issued to me in the military, 16 years ago. Still in great shape, and I use them for bird hunting! Had them resoled by Danner once. There are lighter boots out there, but for me they are the most comfortable and durable. They run a but narrow though, I have regular width feet, but run an EE width in this boot.
These are the best boots hands down. Whether its Hot or Cold outside your feet will remain comfortable. Was surprised on the hot humid weather your feet stayed dry. This is because the boot is danier made along with leather. Makes it very breathable. On the cold days the 400g liner keeps them warm enough that your feet aren't completely frozen. I submerged them on huge puddles with sleet and snow.. feet are completely dry. Very confident on stepping on any puddle with these. NOW.. here is what you will expect when you buy them. They run half size bigger so order half size down. I am a wide foot so take advantage to go EE, now if you need them EEE for you giants, you can have them stretched by Danners for $25. They have somewhat but not terribly long break-in time but it is well worth it once its done. I mean you don't burp on the first date either, gotta wait a few. The grip is not that great on snow and definitely not on ice. you have to walk gingerly till you get to less snow/ice pavement. Other than that I still call them the best boots out there and Ive used about every brand out there from 5.11 to redwings. These are the boots to have! you will never go back to any other boot and the best part these boots can resole.
I was looking for a replacement for my original boots that wore out, Sequoia 52800, that I have had for the last 20 years. I love these boots, didn't have to "break them in," my feet never hurt, never got cold and never got wet. I have hunted and field dressed many, many animals over the years, blood, guts, etc., you name it. I have gone through creeks, bogs, on and on. Unfortunately, it's getting time to replace them and naturally I looked to Danner being such a satisfied customer in the past and am disappointed that this model is no longer offered. I ordered Acadia thinking it was the closest to what I have now. The toe is too narrow and the heel is way to sloppy and frankly the leather has a very weird smell. Additionally, I paid over $300.00 for these boots which I was happy to do thinking they would be the same craftsman quality I have experienced in the past, and quite frankly, the craftsmanship is less than acceptable. My current boots are a work of art, I paid $180.00 for them back then. Well worth the money. Disappointed in what is offered now.
I have been a FedEx delivery guy going on 11 years in Northeast Ohio. I'm out in the elements all year round especially snow and harsh cold. Through the years I've tried numerous boots to keep my feet warm and dry along with being comfortable and durable. I'm on my feet all day long in and out of the weather. Prior boots I've owned would either fall apart or fail to be waterproof/warm just after one winter. I'm not talking cheap boots either. Anywhere from $100-$200 a pair. I always noticed danner boots but never had the courage to spend almost double the price on a pair being afraid they would fail me like the previous boots. For my birthday this year in October my dad purchased a pair for me. As soon as I put them on they felt perfect and haven't looked back since. You get what you pay for and Danner is the real deal and worth every hard earned penny my dad spent on them. Not once this winter have my feet been wet or cold and have no sign of falling apart anytime soon. My only complaint is traction on packed snow. The flat lugs hardly dig and you slip a bit but I'm ok with it and it's a small issue. The 400 gram insulation is a little warm for chilly fall days but perfect for winter and if it's bitter cold ( negative degrees ) I wear my thicker wool socks and I'm comfortable. All in all they are the best boots I've ever owned and Danner is the only boot company I will continue to wear until I retire. Last and certainly not least, they were made in the U.S.A
Unlike many others, I don't use it as a duty boot or even outside all the time. My primary reason for getting a pair of Acadias was because of the hard floors I work on all day, and I run five miles, six out of seven days. I'm hard on my feet but spoil them with the best when I run, so I was looking for something stable and supportive when it came to teaching on the hard floors of high school.
Walking around in the Danner's for two weeks now and my feet no longer feel like they have been ignored. I've come to realize standing for long periods of time on hard floors, wearing run-of-the-mill shoes, makes about as much sense as fighting a fire in flip-flops. My feet feel great in such a short time and I couldn't be happier! I originally ordered them in a "D" width and they were too narrow. Customer service was awesome and I had a pair of "EE's" shipped to my door in very little turn around.
Being in New England, the 400g insulation keep the feet warm outside, but not to the point of sweating inside, because they breathe so well. I know I could march twenty miles with eighty pounds on my back in these, but I'll save that to my military academy days. Just get a pair and you will know what I'm talking about, and to top it off, they are Made in the USA so you can't go wrong!
I am a patrolman and am on my feet a lot and have had a lot of different boots before these but my wife bought me these and after getting them broke in I couldn't be happier with any other boot these don't even feel like I have the boots on they are so comfortable. thanks Danner for making a great boot.
Very comfortable boots. Previously I've had alot of high end boots, coming in second would be red wings, but these blow them out of the water for durability and comfort.
These took a while for me to break in, I have a bad burn scar on my right leg and they were killing me, however after using conditioner and polish they broke in very quickly, and form fitted to my feet.
I've worn these at work in 100 degree plus days, and worn them shoveling snow below 0, and I've never complained about my feet being too hot, or my feet freezing!
My feet have never gotten wet with thse, and they are very durable even on rough construction sites. I will be getting these re crafted and hope to have them for a few more years. Well worth the money. My soles are wearing a little faster than I had hoped, but this is typical in almost all boots I've had.
I purchased my first pair of these Danner Boots in 1996. I served 8 years in the Marines (0311). I wore these boots on endless humps and have zero complaints. I am on to my second pair that I bought in 2007. I have had the tread replaced twice. I backpack, hike, hunt, fish and these boots have never failed me. They are not the lightest option but what you lose in weight is made up in durability, strength and comfort. Highly recommended! (Marines should purchase the FDE version of this boot. It will serve them well)
I bought a pair of these things in 1995. They lasted SEVEN YEARS working at a large municipal fire department until the soles wore out. Had we not lost them in a house fire, I would have had them re-soled. I wish I had the money for another pair, I'd buy them again without hesitation!!!!
My first pair was issued 24yrs ago while in Special Warfare (not a seal..but seal support) and I still wear them almost every day. New job requirement of Black. I put the Arcadia's on and walked 11 miles (postal carrier)very comfortable. Temp was 80 and the 400g of Thinsulate did not overheat my feet at all. I look forward to wearing them for many years. I will be sending my desert Danners back for recrafting. I will continue to display and brag about my Danners only now in Black. Bravo Zulu to all the craftpeople @ DANNER!! I love what you do!
I bought my boots August of 2001. They have been resoled twice and I can forsee them taking me to retirement in thirteen years. I haven't had any problems with liner seperation which I have seen in many lesser quality boots. The stitching has heald strong for all theses years. I work in the central Texas area (law enforcement). Our summer seems to go from May to November. I have never had problems with the boots being too warm in the summer or too cold during the rare winter freeze. The boots are a monetary investment but will last you a life time.
I have owned these boots for over 10 years. I have had them re-crafted several times as well. I wear them every day for work and they are comfortable and warm. Being a patrol sergeant for the local Sheriff's Office in Washington State I am out in all kinds of weather from down pouring rain to heavy snow near Mt. Rainier. I have never had a leak issue, except when the puddle is deeper then the boot is high. They have lasted well. I do own a second pair to have on hand when I send a pair down for re-crafting. I did have an issue with re-crafting this last time. I wore my boots for less than one day and the outer sole, at the heel, separated from the base. One e-mail later and the boot were returned to the re-crafting department, fixed and returned without further issue. Based on the numerous times I have had my boot re-crafted I am overall please with the service and quality. The boots always come back looking sharp. The turnaround time is fast. Others have mentioned to me that these boots are heavy. I guess they kind of are but I wear them day in and day out, even when I am on my feet all day I find them to be extremely comfortable. I guess I just got use to the weight, I do not find them to be heavy. If you are looking for a good all purpose boot this is the one to go with. They will keep your feet warm and dry and comfort is the bonus and in my opinion is the key. They have gone up in price since I purchased mine; I think I paid just over $200. The re-crafting is the key in the purchase of these boots. You can get them back good as new for less than half the price as a new pair.
I bought my Danners in 2003. I am still wearing them for duity and the only thing i've ever done to the boots was had them resoled. I do plan on buying a new pair, and retiring my old ones to yard duity. Bottom line... you get what you pay for!
I've had these boots for 8 years now, and I wear them daily. Aside from being resoled a couple of times put a coat of polish on these boots and they look like new. They are by far the best uniform boots on the market.
I have owned these boots for a couple months now. I am still breaking them in, but they seem to improve every day. They have the 400g insulation, yet they fit exactly like my uninsulated Acadias. The 1748 Kletterlift sole is the best traction you can get for cold, freezing, snow, and ice conditions.
I work for the U.S Posatal Service and even though these boots aren't officially approved there far superior than any other boot offered.It can be a heavy volume day and a bad weather day my feet still feel great.And the longer I'm out there the better they feel.Comfort food if you will for my feet.I love this boot and The Danner Boot Co. You are the Best!
