Flashpoint II 10" All Leather Black

$360.00
|  Style 18102
USA Crafted

Smokejumpers and other wildland firefighters depend on their boots to perform in the most dangerous and demanding conditions. Danner's Wildland Firefighting boots have been a tool of the trade for decades. Each version just gets better and better. This boot looks like our original Flashpoint but has been re-engineered with an all-leather upper and with a foot-conforming heel and toe box.


 
 
 

We wanted to give wildland firefighters and smokejumpers the toughest, safest, most comfortable boot that human hands could build. To make it happen, we used Vibram® Fire Logger outsoles, special Nomex® stitching, and fire-retardant leather. We put these pieces together in a boot that was designed for exceptional comfort, fit, and durability.

Boot Details
  • Fire, puncture, and water-resistant 8 oz leather is the most rugged, toughest leather we've ever put on a boot
  • Danner's hand crafted stitchdown construction provides a wider platform for increased stability underfoot
  • Nomex® fire resistant triple stitching for superior endurance
  • Vibram® 360 degree Fire Logger outsole compound designed for fire and abrasion resistance and provide substantial edging and superior traction
  • Steel shank
  • 10" height for ultimate support and stability
  • 100 oz
  • NFPA 1977; 2011 edition certified
  • Made in the USA with US and Imported components
  • Recraftable
74 Last
The 74 last is designed specifically for traditional logger style boots containing a removable footbed. It offers a standard profile with a more regular fit. Boots on this last tend to fit true to size. 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) or “EEEE” (extra wide) in this style.

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.

Don't break em' in on a fire.

By Chris FFT1

from Central Point, Oregon

Pros

  • Aggressive tread
  • Good For Sidehillin
  • Kept My Feet Cool
  • Tough construction

Cons

  • Rough Seams Above Toes
  • Sloppy Heal Movement
  • slow break in
  • Tremendous Boot Bite

Best Uses

    7th year Wildland firefighter, previous Danner boots (Quarry, Flashpoint).
    Used in rugged terrain during extreme conditions and long rigorous hiking.

    Initial fit is good on flat ground although the heal seemed a little sloppy. Once off of flat ground and actually trudging up the mountain, the seams below the first eyelet dug into feet badly. Also a tremendous amount of boot bite between the 5th and 7th eyelets.

    Blisters on heal, toes, top of lower foot, top of upper foot, and ankle.

    If you buy these, prepare to use a lot of moleskin and duct tape.

    Have been wearing them for everyday use to try and break them in for their second season. We will see when the dirt starts flying if it has done any good.

    Great boots!

    By Bill

    from Castaic, California

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Great traction
    • Heavy duty
    • Sharp looking

    Cons

    • loose heel

    Best Uses

    • Hiking
    • Wildland Firefighting
    • Yard Work

    These are great boots, that look sharp. The aggresive tread, makes climbing loose slopes a breeze. They only have one drawback for me. The heel area is a bit too loose for me. I've tried lacing the boots really tight, in order to prevent my heels from shifting up and down. Too keep them from shifting, I needed two pairs of socks, one set being heavy wool socks.

    Due to the boot not having an inner liner, the rough leather will abrade your inner heels, causing bad blisters. To prevent this, try adding moleskin to your inner heels, before using heavy socks.

    Really well built backcountry boot

    By Angoo65

    from Northern California

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Comfortable Break-in
    • Comfortable fit
    • Comfortable out of the bo
    • Great construction

    Cons

    • A Bit Tight In The Tongue

    Best Uses

    • Forestry Work
    • Wildland Fire Fighting

    These boots are made for wildland fire fighting. They are flame resistant and heavy for a reason and everything about them is overbuilt. I think they are easer to wear than Whites, and the fit for a non custom boot is, for me, superb. I will need a couple of seasons to judge the performance and durability, but so far, I'm very pleased!
