Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I have been going through three pairs of merrells a year...they are comfortable but donít last long for work. Itís time to find something that I can wear for at least a year.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


Depends on the boot brand.

Iím not loyal to anyone brand. Iíve had Red Wings last almost 2 yrs and RW that didnít last a year. Iím on a pair of Wolverines now that I really like.

To answer the question, I would say every 18 months on average.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


Every two years ... after the soles are mostly gone and the seam just behind the toes is blown out. i'd post a picture of my current boots blowing out at this seam but i think everyone knows what i'm talking about.

the pair of boots being given away appears to have the seam in front of where the toe bends which is good.

danner's hiking boots are my favorite. it is called the Sundowner. it doesn't have that seam and the soles are stuck on well so they last forever. put an orthopedic sole and they are comfortable as heck to wear anywhere as many people do.

if i make a pair of boots for myself i'm going to use kangaroo hide and put the more stretchy leather in the area where the boot bends. i'll use thick leather like 1-2mm bought in el paso. this leather lasts forever. it is the only leather i use in falconry. other types of leather (can't remember the name) either shrink, crack and become hard or the birds bite through it.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I use to get 2 years or of cat. Then it seemed like their quality went down. Now Im having issues with heel pain so Im trying different brands. Im probably going about a year on average.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


I am hard on boots, and it doesn't seem to matter the brand or style, I still have to replace them at least once or twice a year. Would love to try the Danner boots out.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


About once a year I replace my boots. Usually blow out the sides cus I'm flat footed and have a very wide foot. Usually a 4E boot is a little snug when new and are they ever hard to find!!

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


My Red Wings usually last 3-4 years. I picked up a pair of Wolverines last year and they started falling apart within a few months, and they don't even get worn daily

I will be contacting you shortly.

You need to go here and scroll down to the bottom to choose which boot you want. Click on it, then choose width and size, but do not order. I will need you to send that information to me. I will also need your shipping information.

Re: GIVEAWAY: Danner Stronghold Boots


Thanks again CT/cricket for sponsoring these giveaways as I always enter for the rare shot that I could actually win...Frankly, can't believe I did.

It a great looking boot, I went with the NMT version and am so looking forward to strapping these babies on!

Thank you very much!

Thanks Cricket and CT. I've never been one of the lucky ones, but I feel pretty fortunate lately.

Those look pretty sweet, can't wait.
