Product Details

Overview

A great all-purpose work boot, the Rain Forest™ GTX® boot is lined in GORE-TEX® for breathable, waterproof protection and features full-grain leather for rugged durability. Stitchdown construction means a wider platform for greater stability, and angled lugs in the outsole provide substantial support whether ascending or descending. Center lugs deliver maximum traction on wet and dry surfaces.

How it Fits

The 650 last offers a sleek, slender profile with a more narrow fit. Boots on this last tend to fit those with a more narrow foot better than those with a wider foot. This ensures a snug fit for terrain and activities that demand support and stability. If you do have a wider foot, we recommend ordering an "EE" (wide) in this style.

First pair of Danners I have ever purchased and it sure won't be the last!. I usually buy a boot with a Wing in it's name. Finally a boot that is durable and comforable enough to wear every day. Plus it has the American flag on the boot shown that this product is made in the good ol' USA. Find a Wing that does that!!!! Buy American and support an American company making their product here.

Women's too narrow in forefoot

It's always been difficult for me to find fire boots that fit. Often it seems like manufacturers just take a men's boot and make it narrower. Women typically have narrower heels than men (the case with me). If they fit me in the heel they're usually too narrow in the toe box. If I try on a men's boot, if they fit me in the toe box they're too wide in the heel (slippage=blisters). Great boot, but my toes were squished and became numb within 10 minutes. On to the next.

      Comments about Danner Rain Forest Mens/Womens Plain Toe Work Boots:

      I've had my boots for five years doing land surveying. They are great in extremely wet and muddy conditions, as well as carrying heavy loads in steep terrain.

      I abused them terribly, leaving them wet and muddy overnight frequently, but they still lasted five years. I've since learned to take care of my boots, but it was too late for this pair. I'll be buying a new pair right away.

      A great boot; I would wear anything else!

        Comments about Danner Rain Forest Mens/Womens Plain Toe Work Boots:

        The Rain Forest Plain Toe work boot is an excellent product! I have used them as my primary duty boot the past several years, with nothing but positive success. In all types of weather or harsh conditions, they have proved to be a great value for the money I spent. Danner is my only choice for duty boots at the fire department and my off duty recreational use.

          I wear this boot everyday and for the last 3 months I've used them on rocky terrain, gravel, in fields and walked through streams, all without any problems. They are a good looking boot and have protected my feet and kept them dry.

          Comments about Danner Rain Forest Mens/Womens Plain Toe Work Boots:

          I own a land and wildlife management company. I use these boots everyday on the job, and wear them around the house. My state forestry service uses Danner boots too. They sold me on them. I like the fact that they are made in the USA. These are the "Super Duty" of boots. They are very well made. I also like that they are recraftable. The only complaint I have is the price.
