Danner Light II Boot Reviews:


Stable, Comfortable, Not Perfect

These boots appealed to me as a field worker in a variety of adverse New England environments because they appeared durable and highly stable. Overbuilt sole is an old style that wouldn't be applicable to hiking good trails, but I wear them everyday in terrain that varies from abandoned urban lots to rocky outcroppings on steep slopes. The stability and traction is what I desired and expected. I wore them many miles in the city and they were very comfortable.

After a painful break-in with sole pain, ankle swelling, and a lot of clicking from the heel/ankle area (which went away) the boots became comfortable. I had to exchange for a wide and now the fit is perfect - no toe slamming or sliding. They did well on a Grand Canyon hike, but the boots were heavy.

These boots are not waterproof. The leather is nubuck and it absorbs water. I have not treated them yet but will need to soon because in wet grass or any sort of precipitation the leather becomes saturated and takes some time to dry.

Now, after wearing them for three months, everyday, they are no longer waterproof to wet grass and my toes get wet. In very wet conditions, the boot interior becomes very moist.

They are not what I had hoped for, but I'm not sure any company makes a boot that stands up to the conditions and repetitive abuse my job demands. Next time I just wont spend as much.

Tough and comfortable

I've had the same pair of Danner Light II since 1997. They've seen countless hundreds of miles of day hikes, backpacking trips and hunting trips all over Arizona and New Mexico. After all those years and miles, I finally wore the sole down. I sent them back to Danner for rework and they are good as new, but well broken in. I expect to get another 15-20 years out of this pair.
I've had them so long, I thought it would be good for shoppers to hear my opinion. You can't go wrong with Danner boots.

Very nice boots

Very nice boots. I spent a lot of time trying to find just the right boots for everything but sub-zero wear, as I have a pair of winter pacs. These boots run medium width as claimed so for me that is perfect. Very light boots too. Wasn't sure if I would be able to wear them for a full day of hiking, but I'm sure they'll be perfect. Slightly darker than in the picture so I actually like them better! Love them so far and I anticipate that being the case for the next 15 years.
