Flashpoint II 10" All Leather Black

Style No. 18102
$400.00
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.

 
 
 
 

Product Details

Overview

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.

How it Fits

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Comments about Flashpoint II 10" All Leather Black:

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!

Fits Larger than other Danner Boots

By Torch

from OK

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Great sole
  • Solid Construction
  • Sturdy boot

Cons

  • Heel Slop
  • Runs large

Best Uses

  • ATV Riding
  • Rugged terrain
  • Wildland Fire

Comments about Flashpoint II 10" All Leather Black:

You can tell the boot was well crafted. Even with EE width, the big and little toe mound areas are snug; heel area is loose. I would recommend ordering a half-size smaller than you do with other Danner boots and see if it helps. Don't expect to have an out-of-the-box boot to wear. Break-in time is significant. Would like to see an option for GoreTex lining, but would guess that it can't be NFPA rated?

    Another Great Boot

    By Operator

    from Brunswick,Ga

    Comments about Flashpoint II 10" All Leather Black:

    Another great Danner boot.The fit is perfect and the toe box is just the right size.At my size 11, this boot is a perfect fit at Danner's size 11. There is some roughness in the heel area, but the proper socks will take care of this.These boots are tough and I believe they will last 20 years!
