Climb mountain, then bronze this shoe...

This is a tank of a boot. It takes some time to break in and it is not as light as the foam shoes out there these days, and it requires maintenance, but it is indestructible. . .

I have had two pairs of these and they haven't changed much from 1992 until now.

I would have had only had one pair, if someone didn't steal my first pair.

This is a long haul shoe, or maybe more appropriately a mountaineering/backpacking boot, not something you would want to play soccer in.

This is the thickest leather I have ever seen on a shoe, as thick as a belt.

If you are only going to purchase a single boot for all of our wilderness activities, this should not be it.

If you fall into the club of having three levels of outdoor shoes and if two of them fit the categories such as of a glorified tennis shoe (made with brown, gray and black materials), and a light hiker, this should be your third set. It will outlast five sets of tennis shoes and three quality light hikers. . .

. . .After you climb a medium sized mountain with this shoe, it is worthy of being bronzed. . .

FYI these pics are my second pair, from when the boots were about 6 or 7 years old. . .

Mama called them my magic shoes

Quality shoes! A very unique design that can take some time to get use to. I had a fold on the side of the tongue on my right shoe that created a very uncomfortable knot, but after a few days of rolling it out to where it had to be, the shoe felt great. They also took some time to break in around the top, but I won't complain about ankle support, no one likes rolled ankles. The vibram sole makes me feel very sure footed on slippery wet/snowy/muddy hills, and can be replaced when worn out because it's sewn on (no one likes glue either). The eyelets that go all the way down the toe pull the shoe snug to my foot for a very nice fit (blisters are bad! burgerfoot sucks!). & the combination of the tongue design & the gore-tex lining keep my feet dry, except from the sweat (change socks often). Aside from their practicality, these shoes also look pretty good when they're all cleaned up.

Danner Magic

The best boot I have ever owned. I have a pair of these boots for 20 years that have been re soled twice. I have hiked and camped and the boots are very comfortable. I have used these for work ever day for three years till I had to go to steel toe. Ten years later my family decided to try camping so I dusted off the boots and they honestly felt great after sitting for ten years. Great job Danner.

Obviously the best, but...

I had to exchange these due to the severity of the ankle bite issue. They're sending me Danner Light II's in the same size/width. I'll review those when I get them. The Mountain Light II's are awesome boots that fit perfectly in every other way. I really wanted them to work out, but can't commit to such a difficult break-in. Buy these only after trying them on first! The Light II sits higher on the ankle, so fingers crossed...

Great boots

Great shoes, I can wear them out to the bar or to work or just around town. They are waterproof so I don't have to worry about that. My feet do not sweat in them as well, so I'm good there. These are great boots and since they are Danner's I can get them rebuilt when they wear out. I'm super happy with this purchase.

Danner Men's Mountain Light II

I hike fire roads and trails daily. I got these to replace another brand that wore out too quickly. The size ran true and the fit was fine. They were broken in on one short hike. Yeah, they were a lot of money, but I believe they were still a good value.

Great Boots

Great boots and have lots of ankle support that I need. I also have a narrow foot and good narrow boots are hard to find. They can be resoled! and they're made in the USA!!! They are rather expenseive however but I feel you get your money's worth with these.

I would buy this product again!

Boots were very comforable out of the box. Size fit as expected. I was concerned about the insert, but it is comfortable and has worked very well. I wear the boots daily for work and afterwork and I really like the comfort of the boots.

Excellent boots

Great boots. My first pair lasted six years of nearly daily wear.

The boots run a little narrow to provide better ankle support, so you may need to order a wider than normal size.

good boot

The plastic wedge arch spport is nice, but you'll need an insole to keep the edge from causing a callous. There's not much vertical space for an insole, so find a thin set!

Negative Reviews:

Too stiff to wear

These boots were outrageously stiff and uncomfortable when I got them. I walked in them for literally 300 yards down the road from my house when I first got them (wearing hiking socks) and was in pain with blisters on my right ankle and left heel for the last 100 yards of the return. I have never experienced anything like this with any shoes or boots I have ever had before in my life, and I am 52. I believe they are the correct size but just crazy stiff! I have not given up on them and have kneaded them with my hands to soften them, have looked up some "tight shoe" techniques on the net to loosen them, and have bought some REALLY thick socks to wear with them when my feet heal (the raw spot on the ankle has been pesky!).

I like the way the boots look and think their rigidity will be good when/if I can break them in and wear them. At this point breaking the dang things in is a matter of pride!

Achilles Eating Monster

Tried these boots in the house for a week. Tore up my achilles tendons at the top of the boot. Had to return them. Were not a medium "D" width, very little freedom across the ball of the foot; no room for the foot bones to spread naturally.

Hopefully Danner can Fix this boot

My first pair lasted me about five years and was the best boot I ever bought. The replacement pair wasn't so good. The leather pealed apart and the sole seperated within weeks of wearing them. I was told my a manufacture's rep that Danner is having problems with this boot. Hopefully they can fix the issue. I still hope to buy another pair
