That's too bad, I didn't know that. Been a while since I bought a pair, but good to know. Dang!
Their website might tell you where they are made. Here's what Danner says about mine:
Made in USA with Imported Components
We source the best materials from around the world and utilize some construction work overseas before shipping partially assembled components to be finished in our Portland, Oregon factory. Once in our factory, the boot uppers are formed and the entire bottom of the boot is constructed by hand, giving us greater control over the finished product. This manufacturing process allows us to bring you a less expensive USA made boot without compromising the quality you expect from Danner.
Them's steel toed butt kickin boots son. :lol:Nice, but they ain't cowboy boots.
Close, but no cigar today, sorry. Steel toes are an option I did not go for. When I was working, steel toes were not allowed because of electrocution hazard. Hells fire, if you got that close to power, you're fried anyway, steel toes or not. My old Wesco Highliners were 16" and were up near my knees too. Not waterproof though, and I used a Peet boot dryer. Great item to have, I still use it.Them's steel toed butt kickin boots son. :lol:
I wear steel toed boots of similar style to that but I have to keep the upper laces untied and tie them at the ankle instead to allow my feet to breath. I also have steel toed work boots that go up near my knees but they're not as comfortable and I have to lysol them daily due to all the sweat so they smell ok the next day. They said they were waterproof but when I got stuck in the mud I think it stretched the leather away from the soles and my tippies got soaked. I have flat feet and need memory foam inserts as well.
One word in work boots for comfort: Red Wings.
Speaking of which, here's a very recent WSJ article about Red Wings moving some of their production back to the U.S.: https://www.wsj.com/articles/red-wing-iconic-u-s-shoe-maker-labors-mightily-to-bring-production-home-11562942199?shareToken=stcd2ce386348f495d88893683f93ab205
I think I finally encountered something that Maria and I would disagree on completely. I'm a Spanish style man, inside and outside a home. I like austere decorations too, but I prefer interior design and decoration much more along the lines of Hearst Castle. All that concrete in Maria's house makes it look cold, like an ICBM silo. Guess this is where a his and her houses comes into play. :lol:
