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.

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.

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.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots

I cant get a year out of mine. I wear Carolinas mostly. Ive never found a boot last any longer. Im always in red mud, climbing, and digging.

I lay brick, block, and stone. Mortar, concrete, and red mud eats the stitching out of most boots. And if we have a large paver job, usually wear through to the steel toe. Plus working in the shop at nights,

Im hard on boots ......I do have a pair of Rocky western boots Ive had for 4 years. But those are my boots I wear when Im not working.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots

Well this explains why the Danner ads were blocking parts of the pages

To answer the question:
Every year, but actually kind of twice a year.
In the winter I wear a hiking boot, Ariat Terrain H2O.
In the summer I wear sneakers.
They will each wear out after their season of use.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots

The wear I put on workboots varies according to the type of projects I work. I replace mine every year to a year and a half.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots

Average one and a half to two years. Usually buy the new pair well in advance - that way I can break them in gradually.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots

I get maybe a year out of mine . Tend to be a little hard on them especially the toes. Wear them until there in not much left to them. Also when the laces are wore out so are the boots.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots

Use to be doing good to get a year out of my redwings.
Then I started rinsing the mud off every night, and conditioning the leather every couple months, now I can get almost 2 years.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots

I used to buy Wolverines until the soles came loose on an almost new pair. That was when I found out that there is no warranty on Wolverine boots. Switched to Red Wing and I get about 1 year life from them.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots

I wear my combat boots nearly every day as i just love the feel and I use them for State Guard Duty and visiting work sites for my design and drafting business. I actually get about two years as I am not doing so much carpentry or electrical work anymore.
That may change soon though.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots

I scuff my soles long before any other part of my boot fails so I am getting 6 months out of a pair. I am on concrete all day long and don't mind paying extra and replacing often.
