I bought these to replace an older set of Vasquez's. I had a 7 day backpacking trip on "The Beaten Path", MT. This trip requires heavy rock and boulder path hiking, and this was the case.

These boots did admirably for from small streams to one slip while fording a river.

What impressed me was the fact I never felt like I needed to put on my campsite shoes after an all day hike across boulders. I just loosened the laces a bit. To save space and travel weight I wore the boots through the airports.

Our backpacking party compared boot wear from all the boulders, rocks (Granite primarily) and the Danner's won out. In fact the backpacking store in Red Lodge asked me about the Danner's (They do not carry Danner's currently) and were impressed with them.

I use these boots for day hikes, geocaching excursions, and general outdoor activities. I have high arches so replacement of the insoles is always necessary. The Danner insole is slightly better than some but still provides very limited foot support. The boot does fit me well (11.5 W).
These boots have soft leather uppers (comfortable walking) but do not provide very good support on side slopes. My foot just rolls around inside the boot rather than the boot digging into the terrain. The lacing system does not hold adjustments very well. The soles provide good protection in rocky conditions. This boot is comfortable but not the best boot I have owned (just the most expensive). It may turn out to be the most durable. The lack of side hill stability and antiquated lacing are the main drawbacks to this boot.

Comments about Crater Rim 6" Brown:

I wore these boots in Afghanistan for a year. They were by far the best boots I have used in the Army in 16yrs. The sole is durable yet comfortable and they stood up to the terrain of Afghanistan. I was exposed to all types of elements and these boots took them all, never once did my feet get wet. I would recommend these boots to anyone without hesitation.

Sierra and Grand Canyon tested

Pros

  • Bullet proof
  • HIKING
  • Rugged
  • Waterproof

Cons

  • NARROW

Best Uses

  • Hiking

Comments about Crater Rim 6" Brown:

I have been hiking in these shoes for one year and I do believe they are indestructible. In the past I have wore out at least two pair of hiking boots in the same amount of time. I am a backcountry guide and SAR at the Grand Canyon and in the Sierra Nevadas and have nothing but good to say about these boots. My only downside is that I have a wide foot and found these too be a little narrow. To compensate for my feet and the boot construction I use silk sock liners and I put shoes trees in after my hikes.....no problem!
I think I can get at least two more years out of these boots and they only get more comfortable.

The Jeep of boots

By Subzero

from Pennsylvania

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • All-weather
  • Comfortable
  • Indestructible

Cons

  • A little stiff

Best Uses

  • Any terrain
  • Cold weather

Comments about Crater Rim 6" Brown:

I also wore these for a year in Afghanistan. I walked a great many miles over any and all types of terrain and up and down mountains. Paired with thick wool socks I never got any blisters and miraculously my feet never got wet or cold.
With these boots on, my feet felt as if they were indestructible.
I also wore them in icy snowy slushy sub zero conditions and felt toasty warm (or at least not freezing... There are limits to any piece of gear).
Possibly the best cold weather boots I've ever worn.
The only thing I would improve would be to make the soles less stiff. Took a while to break in.

Comments about Crater Rim 6" Brown:

These boots are absolutely worth every penny. Built like a tank, yet very light and comfortable. There is not comparison to these boots so don't even bother looking. I would recommend these boots to anyone that works hard and plays hard. I've worn them to the range, while working, and outdoors. There is nothing negative that I can say about these boots.

Made in USA and it shows!

By Toby

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Comfort
  • Construction
  • Foot And Ankle Support
  • Made in USA

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Hiking
    • Post Ankle Surgery
    • Walking

    Comments about Crater Rim 6" Brown:

    I bought these because I had broken my Achilles tendon six months before a planned five week trip to Europe. My other ankle had been broken several years before and I knew I needed really good foot and ankle support. These exceeded my needs and expectations while walking through cities with uneven cobblestone roads or day hiking in the Alps. They looked good enough to wear anywhere.

    I have other US made Danners for work around the farm and construction if I had been wearing them instead of tennis shoes I wouldn't have broken my Achilles. My orthopedic surgeon thought these would be great.

    Great boots, look good, excellent fit and support.
