Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


About two years, and I'm overdue. Just need time to shop.

Every year.
Never owned a pair of Danner work boots, have 3 pairs of Danner hunting boots.

Interesting.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I posted 3 or 4 years, but i should specify that im a painter so my boots last much longer than most of these guys.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I'm lucky to get 8-10 months out of set of $100-120 boots. I'm a bit picky on boots too as they need to soft and pliable and not heavy in weight...and never steel toed. Plus I have a wide foot.

Once a year, at the outside. Often faster.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I go thru a pair of boots every couple of years. Only wear boots for certain jobs. Shoes, which are my daily wear, I tear thru sometimes every 5 months or so. Often I will turn my home shoes into my work shoes when they get worn.

I get about a year and a half from a mid-priced Cat or Timberland. (General carpentry use -- indoors and out.)

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I get about two years from my boots, usually don't wear them during the summer. I haven't seen anybody address wearing sandals to work in warm weather, but I spend a lot of time in my closed- toe Keens

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


If I’m lucky I’ll get about 2 years. A product called Shoe Goo helps extend boot life too.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I don't buy boots by how long they last, I buy them strictly by how comfortable they are. Do Michael Jordan's count?


Mike.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I get about 2 years out of my Redwings. Sides of the heals wear funny because of the way I walk, and then they become uncomfortable.

I've had my new Wolverines for maybe a couple years, but they are used as a dress(non-work) boot until my current Redwings wear out. Then they'll get rotated down to daily work boots.

Hopefully I'll win some new boots. My Redwings are almost done. Rotate Wolverines into daily use and I'll be getting something new for dress(non work) boots. And the process starts over again.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


Order 2 pair at a time, usually switch out every day or two. Usually by them every year.

I wear soles out long before the boots/shoes are junk.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I mostly wear sneakers. Boots in the cold weather when we're working outside but that's just when I'm trying to fit in.

I use Danner black tactical boots, or Bates. Soft and comfortable right out of the box, and last a couple years for me.

I never heard of Danner before now. I'm happy to get 2 years out of my work boots. Not set on any particular brand.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I buy a new pair once a year, just before the snow flies and the cold weather sets in. They last through the summer, just not as weather-proof as the new does. Never had a pair of Danners, but have heard of them.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I never get more than one year out of any pair of boots. I will start rotating in a newer pair when the previous one starts showing wear. I usually will keep the old ones around for emergencies, or for cutting the grass.
