851 Last
The 851 last is an update to our popular 850 last. This last fits true to size with an athletic and supportive fit while providing ample room in the toe. Offering a specific heel shape that locks the heel in place for better fit and comfort on the back end of the boot, this supportive fit is ideal for those needing high mileage performance from their gear.

Tips for the Perfect Fit

  • Measure both feet. If one foot is slightly larger than the other, select a size that fits the larger of the two.
  • Consider the type of socks you’ll be wearing with your boot. For thicker socks, you may want to select a half size larger than you normally wear.
  • When you do receive your boots, we recommend first wearing them indoors for a few hours to ensure they’re the right fit.

Free Return Shipping
Rest assured that if the boot you receive doesn’t fit correctly, we pay for return shipping back to us. You can order with confidence knowing return shipping is always on us.

Tough as nails

By Buck

from Mandeville, LA

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Comfort
  • durability
  • Made in USA
  • Recraftability
  • Water resistance

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Hiking
    • Hunting

    Hard to beat for the price. All of the qualities of American-made Danners at an exceptional price. I've beat mine up on high-country trails, muddy bottoms and rocky outcroppings. Comfortable out of the box, lighter than expected, better water-resistance than expected. These boots will get you there and back, and you can redraft them when you wear out the soles.

    If you've been back and forth about what size you should get , just go with what size you where most of your other boots in. If you have 3 pairs of boots that are 9.5 and one pair that are 10 , go with the size 9.5. Plus the size tool that danner uses is really what size you are going to want to get...
    Now on to the boots themselves.

    The Danner East Ridge boots really are the best bang for your buck if you are looking for a great boot for outside, hunting, shooting, and what have you. But if you need a good boot for the work inviormet they do just fine on concrete. I have had my pair lilttle over 2 months now and I fall more and more in love with them each day I wear them. I would say the break in period takes about a week to 2 weeks tops. I also got to take them out in the woods for some squirrel huntig in below freezing weather and my feet stayed warm.

    Bottom line I would say is they're a great boot for the money, danner makes the best boots I have ever owned.

    Totally worth the money , I have owned/worn more expensive boots in the past that havn't been as comfortable as these boots . They offer great traction in the woods , at the range , and at the mall . This light weight boot is way ahead of others in comfort and durability , and if I ever do wear them out " they are rebuildable " which dollar for dollar makes them even more cost effective . Great job Danner !!

    Very Comfortable Boots

    By Steamrunner

    from Killeen, TX

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Soft footbed
    • Waterproof

    Cons

    • No Safety Toe Version

    Best Uses

      A bit rigid but did not take long to break them in. The cushioning polyurethane footbed is what I like the best about these boots. My feet becomes painful when walking/standing on hard, flat surfaces. The footbed eases the pain considerably. I wear these boots daily except to work.

      Good boots and stellar service

      By Kwixdraw

      from East TN.

      Pros

      • Danner

      Cons

      • none

      Best Uses

      • Do It All Except For Dres
      • Every Day Wear

      The boots are comfortable from the start. I had to order a size larger than I normally wear to get toe clearance and space for winter socks. I had to return the pair I ordered in my normal size. The customer service rep was very pleasant and efficient. The exchange was painless. Ive been wearing Danner Acadias on duty for most of twenty years, these East Ridges feel like they will be every bit as comfortable and maybe more. The tongue of the boot feels a little strange since the excess forms the pleat outside instead of inside when you lace them. Just a minor difference and I say "feels" because it makes you think about the lacing process. You can't actually feel a difference. I bought these and may buy another pair to rotate with.
