It's all there: the silhouette of the classic logger heel, the stability of stitchdown construction and the strength of rich, full-grain leather. The only thing missing is the weight you might expect from a boot of this caliber. The Danner Logger was created to bring a new level of lightweight comfort and flexibility to the traditional logger platform.
Durable, waterproof, oiled nubuck leather upper
Danner® Dry waterproof protection
Cushioning open-cell OrthoLite® footbed
Bi-Fit stability board for underfoot comfort, reduced weight and added forefoot flex
Handcrafted, stitchdown construction for strength and stability
Vibram® 360° Logger outsole offers substantial edging and superior traction
Been wearing them for about a week now and they are getting more comfortable by the day. They felt good right at first but needed broke in after I started working in them. As long as they last a decent amount of time these will be my go to boots.
I have waiting my whole life seriously. To purchase a Danner. Broke in as expected with absolutely no issues. It was sad to see my first scuff.
Ps. The sticker in the foot bed took me forever to get off and it ultimately left the glue on the pad. Now my sock sticks to it and it has this dirty sorta look now. Please change the adhesive to the same as they put on baseball caps as they peel of perfectly.
? can’t say I ever loved a boot before but always a first
Got my new pair these afternoon, a bit rough up from the trip , had a lot of scuff marks, but I’m a tree climber, so these will go through the grinder. Tried them on right away, lightweight, comfortable, flexible/stiff and that’s right out of the box, and true to size I’m a 10 in timberlands and 9.5 EE in Chippewas, I ordered a 10 wide, perfect fit. Thank you,Danners you got a new loyal customer as long as I can climb. Sincerely Edgar Rosales
These boots saved my broken down feet, i needed a tough shank and sole, the heel height is a bonus for me. Walking tons and on my feet all day in the mountains where i work, you need a good boot, these loggers are great. Would have loved an unlined boot as my feet run on the hot side, but other than that; they fit great, no long break in, sturdy support, and the heel and sole protect my failing arches!Maybe the leather isn't as good as years ago, but hey does anybody make boots like the good ole days? Customer support from Danner was great too.
I bought a pair of these in 2017 for my job. I work for Alaska Power & Telephone as a field combo tech. My job consists of flying to mountain tops to maintain Microwave radio sites. I climb towers, I maintain our diesel generation, and work on network equipment. Boots are a necessity. I bought these because I thought they would be great for tower climbing and they are. I like the comfort of the deep heel when climbing the ladder knowing my foot was locked in on the rung. Out of the box brand new they were super comfy didn't feel like I need to break them in. These quickly became my daily wear I even wore them on hikes. The only complaint I had when wearing them on a hike especially where I live its steeeeeep mountains, going up is fine but coming down in these boots with the 3 inch lift kit wasnt the most pleasant, but thats probably why they are work boots not hiking boots. I eventually bought a different pair of danners for hiking. These boots were water proof for a few months but eventually started to leak around the seams just above the sole. I'd like to think this was due to the lack of treating them regulary. I had bought all the stuff to clean and treat the leather, and I had done it a few times but at the time they were my only boots and daily wear. Eventualy the toes wore away from crawling around on the floor in the generator room its got the non skid paint with the grit on the floor. There is sitll enough tread on them but its defintely worn but enough to where I'll throw them on for a tower job. After about a year and a half the insoles got pretty wore out and they became uncomfortable after 8+ hours of wear and started hurting my feet. so I'd just wear em when I needed to. This past summer (2019) I forgot to pack them for a tower job out of town one time and so I bought a pair of Quarries from sportsmans wharehouse in Juneau. I wanted to buy a pair of the same loggers but they didnt have them. The quarries are okay not as nice in my opinion compared to the logger boot. They are wider and do not seem to have the same quality as the Logger boot. I've only worn them for a couple jobs tho, however I had considered at the time returning them but didn't. I wish I could Post a picture of the boots to show 3+ years of wear but it won't let me.
lastly I will say this overall I own 3 pairs of danners, (loggers, Vital, Quarry) and I'm not all that impressed to be honest. I feel like they do not make them like they used to. My dad when I was a kid had a pair of pronghorns, he wore them hunting, fishing, working, hiking for 10 years. The only thing wrong with them when he gave them away to a person in need who just started a new job in construction, was the moose blood stain on the toe of one of them. I feel like you can barely get a year out of a pair of boots today.
This is my second pair of the same boots. I love them. My only problem with them is they make my feet sweat so bad. I know they are waterproof and that plays a big factor but other brands do not have the same effect. But overall its tollerable due to the fact of how comfortable the boots are and they look nicer than the boots my job provides.
