Quick Overview

The perfect hot weather work boot, our unlined Bull Run will mold to your foot with its well-oiled, full-grain leather upper.
Details

It takes a craftsman to appreciate the details

Constructed of full-grain leather and lightweight, durable Danner wedge outsoles, the unlined Bull Run work boot may look like a simple design at first glance. However, the trained eye will notice the intricate stitching, the hand of the leather, and how all of the parts work together to simply create a product that is built to last.

Strong, yet flexible

Selecting just the right leather is the most important aspect of creating an unlined work boot. It must be strong and it must be soft. Through seven different tests, we graded leather hides in strength, density, and pull. We watched how the leather would conform to the foot with age, and we ensured that it was strong enough to stand up to work environments for years to come.

Modern comfort

On the outside, the Bull Run emulates a classic work boot, one that you’d pull out of your grandpa’s closet in hopes that it fits. With the Bull Run, we took that classic design and updated it with modern comfort. We re-engineered the fit to flow with the anatomy of the foot and to allow room for a soft and sturdy footbed, creating a fit focused on both comfort and long lasting support.

Focus on the ways of our craft

Craftsmanship is found in the details that are unseen, like shaving down panels of leather prior to stitching and working the creases of the upper to create a more secure fit. These are the standards that were set in 1932 when the first Danner boot was made, and these are the same standards that ensure the USA-made Bull Run is a work boot that is built to last.
Full-Grain, Oiled Leather Upper
After incorporating oil into the tanning process, we take the oiled, full-grain leather and put it through a series of rigorous testing to ensure its strength and durability. This form of leather is more resistant to water and other liquid damage and require less maintenance over time.
Unlined Leather Upper
Lighter weight with cool comfort in warmer temperatures, our unlined leather boots will mold perfectly to your foot.
Electrical Hazard (EH) Protection
Meets or exceeds ASTM F2892-11 EH. Electrical hazard (EH) footwear is manufactured with non-conductive electrical shock resistant soles and heels.
Danner Wedge Outsole
The non-marking, oil- and slip- resistant Danner Wedge outsole provides cushioning, lightweight support, and won't track debris. Guarantees cushion and traction on various terrain, but performs best in indoor environments.
Stitchdown Construction
Handcrafted to provide a wider platform, our legendary stitchdown construction offers increased stability underfoot. Many of our stitchdown boots can be recrafted.
How It Fits
Portland made 503 last has a casual fit without compromising Danner's comfortable lace-to-toe construction. Fits true to size.
Recraftable
Extend the life of your boot with our recrafting services. This boot is eligible for a number of services, including part replacement, leather care and restitching. See our Recrafting page.

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.

I purchased the Danner Bull Run boots because I was looking for a premium quality work boot that was made in the United States. I typically purchase cheaper alternatives to Danner boots and quickly wear them down (as expected). However, I have had my Bull Run boots for approximately six months and they have tolerated substantial daily wear in landscaping and farming.

The boots are also far more comfortable than I expected from such a durable shoe. The boots were true to size and the break-in period was roughly one week of use. There is ample support and yet ideal cushioning for long days on your feet. The Vibram Cristy outsoles do not provide substantial traction, but that is to be expected with a wedge-sole boot.

Lastly, the customer service at Danner was fantastic to deal with when I called with a question about my order. These boots are absolutely worth their price.

Bought these boots in July 2014. I've had them just under a year and the rubber soles of the boot are completely worn. There is no tread left making them slippery in wet conditions. Very unimpressed with the quality of the Vibram sole.

Boots were worn 5 days a week for work. Mainly on concrete.

If you want a long lasting, solid boot... Don't buy these.

      Comments about Bull Run 6" Brown Cristy:

      I work a desk job and wear these boots about 3x a week. They took a while to break in- probably 2-3 weeks, but that was ok. The real disappointment is how quickly the sole wore out. It was within 2 months that I contacted customer service about it. My soles had become really slick, and the treads were all but gone, with stitching coming through. They didn't see it as a problem and recommended I buy new boots or re-sole these ones (for $115 or whatever it costs). Really disappointing considering I had been saving and convincing myself that these were a good buy.

      The reality is that the Christy sole isn't meant for heavy use. I'm not sure what these were designed for, but in my mind, Danner spec'd the wrong Vibram sole for the job these are expected to do.

      Comments about Bull Run 6" Brown Cristy:

      I have had shoes and boots made for me because I have narrow feet. In most lasts I am a C width and some high end manufacture's boots I wear a B width. (witch is very narrow.)
      The normal D width in the Danner Bull Run is so tight that there is no way I would consider purchasing it even knowing that the people at the Danner store here in Portland say that they will stretch out. The fact that I had to go with a EE, which is considered to be extra wide says that this boot is made on a very narrow last. I have never been fit into a wide shoes in my life.

          IBEW LU 26 32 years. Great almost give away pricing for a USA made boot. These boots are good for work, play or even nice enough for casual dress. Very light break in 12 hours for me. The only real issue is the top speed lace hooks are to high up on the boot " I just don't use the top one and they're great"
