    SHOT show 2018: Danner Boots

    Not only does Danner have a great reputation for their boots, they also have a stellar reputation for customer service. I can attest to it as I have experienced it myself. They are just as friendly in person, probably one of the friendliest booths that I visited.

    While they make boots for hiking, hunting, and lifestyle, I mainly looked at the tactical/military line. Some of the military boots such as the Rat have been revamped and re-named (to The Reckoning) and now come with a USMC logo, which I think is pretty awesome.





    Black version of the boot without the logo as it does not align with their uniform (although imho black goes with everything lol)




    The logo also appears on the USMC M.E.B.





    Just to be sure, I did ask if the USMC only appears on military bound boots and Danner confirmed that civilians can buy them too.


    I also looked at the Tachyon..not new but I have heard a lot about Danner’s lightest tactical boot…it does have an interesting feel to it



    Speaking of light, it was too bad that they did not have the James Bond Spectre boot, the Mountain Light II but they did have a super lightweight hiker, their first shoe featuring a Vibram midsole and outsole.

    I have a big hike planned in 2019 -- Nootka Trail. Four/five days, plenty of wet and challenging terrain. Been thinking about the Tachyon as the less weight I have to swing around at the bottom of my leg, the happier I'll be.

    Not sure I'd want to wear the eagle/anchor/globe. Reckon I haven't earned that.

    Unless your hair is high and tight, and you walk around knife handing everything nobody will assume you're a marine. You'd be hard pressed to find people that actually know what that symbol represents for the most part.

    hmmmm... this reminds me I have a pair of Fort Lewis that I need to send back for refurbishment.

    wearing Lowa's now and have 2 pairs of Magnum spiders I took on my last deployment.

    I didn't really like the look of the new danners and the USMC logo might be an issue for me wearing them at 'work'

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

    I have a pair of Mountain Light 2s, awesome boots but super heel shredders for the first few weeks and like many online reviews state, your achilles will reform to them, not the other way around.

    Also probably best not to wear boots with the EGA if you aren't a Marine, just bad form.

    Not worried about being confused with a Marine, bud. Just not qualified to wear the insignia. Tikkachu has it right.

    Woodchopper, do you have a source here in Edmonton for Danner? Looks like Milarm stocked them, but, well...

    No worries guy. Was just saying that if the USMC has given permission to sell Danners with the USMC crest they likely don't see the issue, and most people don't know what it is... pal.

    I have a pair of Danner Ft. Lewis boots that have the vibram sole worn down to nubbins. I didn't know you could send them back for refurbishment. What would that cost and where do you send them??

    i agree...and Danner wouldnt do something to jeopardize their good relationship with law enforcement and military so if the logo is there and it is allowed to be sold then there should be no issue. Not being in the USMC, i see it as a sign of showing your support for them..that is why i would wear it
