 :think:

I see what you mean. Trick of the light? (I took them outside for better lighting for the shot of the new soles.  It's a more 'golden afternoon' effect.  :dunno:)

They are a dark brown. Mostly.   :rofl:

Very cool. Danner used to be the hiking boot of choice 20 years ago, before everyone switched to what I call "hiking sneakers". I'd love to find a good pair of Danner leather hiking boots.

Nix, let's see the bottom soles of those things!

Thundah, I think Danner still makes the "Mountain Light" model......quick google......

Yeap. I had a pair of these for years. Nice boots. I later switched to some Vasque Sundowners. I don't think Vasque makes those anymore, so the Mountain Lights might end up back in my rotation.
Got to visit the Danner Factory store in Portland, Oregon.

Extremely extremely well made, but of the dozen or more pairs I tried on they were all too narrow in the heel!

While I'm here, has anyone tried Thorogood? I want a wedge style bottom with moc toe.

The only thing close in Redwing is a heritage, and it's double the price of a Thorogood.

 :pok: Sounds like the boots I posted.  IMO Thorogood makes a great boot.  No complaint from me at all.  I like the white bottom so much I ordered the black bottom shortly after.

Well, Serena, if you like to see a man in nice shoes, this posting is not for you...

These are my 20 year old -H.H.- nubuck harness boots. The company is out of Pennsylvania. I thought they still had character, but
Y-yikes! Looking at them to take the picture, I think they have gone past "character" and it may actually be time to replace them!

Hi NiX,

Yeah I've seen them online and Amazon and whatnot, but as NKlamerus has pointed out, fit is important. I try not to buy my boots online for that reason, and I *never* see Danner Mountain Lights in stores. Too many people want brown sneakers but I need the support of leather near my right ankle because it looks like  >  instead of like >

That didn't post well. Let's just say the sideways "V" shaped Lateral Malleolus the we all have on the outside of our ankle looks more like a sideways "W" on my right side.

I suppose I could get a pair, narrow though Klamerous has said they are in the heel, and just stretch the leather slowly while waterproofing it at the same time...

You might give Danner a call.

They have a good return policy, although, I hate to have the hassle of returning boots/shoes. 

Still......a well-made, well-fitting boot can be hard to find (just ask me).   :salute:

Not at all!  Those definitely are still characterful.  8)

Oh man, with every step I would think that there's a little pebble stuck or something.
Really annoying if you're walking on concrete I think.
Or is this just for snow/ice?

If shoveling/snow blowing out on the sidewalk you wouldn’t even know, if no snow and just concrete it’s like that noisy car with a rock in its tire, but you don’t feel anything because theres 14 in each and spread apart, unlike if there were like 4 and you would think you had a pebble stuck in a groove.. now going shopping no, cause if walking on that finished smooth concrete, yeah all clicking when walking in a perfect straight line, but when turning, SCREEEEECH! So there used only when winter and I gotta clean the sidewalks off,

They're having sale. Maybe another model?

The mail man just delivered a pair of black ones (wool lined, buffalo leather) in size 46 (11?)

Suuuper comfortable!

Jouw schoenen zijn ook gevoerd. Ben benieuwd of je hetzelfde probleem als ik gaat ervaren. Daardoor zakken je sokken af! (Ze worden naar beneden 'getrokken' door de voering)
Daar moet ik nog iets op gaan verzinnen.

Picked up these reproduction of US WWII jump boots a couple of days ago.  Proper stitched sole and solid leather uppers.  These are going to take some breaking in.

Last November I bought these from the local Trespass shop:

Kinda cheap, but they work well for my needs. (I don't hike much.  ::) )

Ordered some Merrell Vapor Glove 3 trail runners, so hopefully those will work well for light hikes.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

I've had some luck with less expensive lessor name shoes.  They tend to not last is normally the situation for me.  I hope you get miles and miles/ kilometers and kilometers from those.
