Danner Stronghold


Born from logging and exploration, Danner is a Pacific Northwest original. Every boot is handmade to hold up in unforgiving conditions and live up to our unyielding standards. The Stronghold work boot is what happens when more than 85 years of legendary quality, durability, and heritage runs into modern construction, technology, and materials. Available in both men’s and women’s, you get tomorrow’s classic today.

No Break In Before You Break Them Out

Start with a last that’s proven from years on the job. Add a supple leather that starts soft and only gets better as it conforms to your foot over time. Top it off with a sole platform that’s designed to cradle your foot. What you get is a boot that doesn’t need to be broken in. It’s all day comfort from the first time you wear it.

Strength That Starts Right From Where You Stand

The Stronghold has a sole that’s built for comfort and stability. The SPE midsole lays out cushioning that feels super soft and returns energy on every step. It pairs perfectly with the oil-and-slip resistant Vibram outsole designed to grip great across all kinds of terrain. Round it out with a 90 degree heel designed to climb and you have a sole you can count on.

Rock Solid Durability

At every point, the Stronghold is designed to be durable. A seamless single piece of full grain leather makes for a waterproof, hard-to-tear upper and PU coated leather panels in high-wear areas serve to double up your defenses.

In 1932 Charles Danner opened his bootmaking business, risking his future on a stubborn belief that, regardless of the economy, superior craftsmanship mattered. While much has changed since the first Danner boot was made, our dedication to crafting a superior product has not. Hold a Danner boot in your hand and you’ll notice the hand crafted precision. Try it on and you’ll feel the difference. Test it against the elements and you’ll appreciate the value of a product that is built to last.

Having adequate support as we get older...I look for shoes and boots that have a good arch and ease of getting them on. And off.

Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


Summer has passed me by, been juggling 2 or 3 jobs at a time. Being a one man show everything is on my shoulders I'm used to it and thrive on being busy and welcome the challenge. But I'd like to have a small break.

Oh and painters SUCK!

What is your biggest work challenge right now?
Right now... Estimating large jobs has become difficult, I love the quotes I can write up in a couple minutes, these larger jobs are taking days to estimate.
Serves me right for "doing it all" and not specializing.

Without a doubt, it has to be keeping up with all the work. It seems that the faster I go the behinder I get.

Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


For me it is trying to keep up with the work especially being shorthanded with winter time approaching.

Especially working on my feet all day, they get so tired in these old boots “wink wink nod nod”

My packed schedule.

It's gotten so tight, I can't afford any days off for weather from now till the end of the year, so having to figure out which job to work on according to what the weather is doing.

Re: AUTUMN GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


Finding anyone who is interested in working. I pay above average wages and am very accommodating of schedule. Yet finding any truly skilled help that is also responsible and motivated is difficult at best. Even subs are terrible about returning phone calls and bids once they have looked at the job. It's not like I'm asking for the impossible ; just turn in a bid and the job is probably yours! But that's the area wide complaint where I am living.
