Our most popular work boot – now built in Portland, Ore. We’ve developed a new Vibram Quarry outsole and upgraded the midsole to a single, solid piece for increased longevity. We’ve also updated the collar liner to be instantly comfortable and re-engineered the placement of the triple-stitching to reduce wear and tear over time. Using our universal 610 last, the US-made Quarry has the same fit and feel as its predecessor.

  • 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® lining
  • Top-grain, oiled nubuck leather provides a natural, rugged look with superior protection
  • Danner's hand crafted stitchdown construction provides a wider platform for increased stability underfoot.
  • Triple stitched for superior endurance
  • Rugged hardware for secure fit and long lasting performance
  • New exclusive Vibram® Quarry outsole features 90º heel, oil and slip resistant rubber compound, and non-linear lug pattern for superior traction and debris release
  • Fiberglass shank
  • 8" Height
  • 70 oz per pair
  • Recraftable
  • Electrical hazard protection ASTM F2892-11 EH
  • Made in USA with imported components

610 Last
The 610 is our most universal last and can be worn by all foot shapes and sizes. It provides a snug fit through the heel while allowing ample toe room for most versatile fit. This allows more support and side-to-side movement.

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.

        A little dissapointed.

        By Conductor Joe

        Pros

        • Well constructed

        Cons

        • Colder climates

        I bought a pair of these at the Sportmans warehouse. I was happy to see they were assembled in the USA, the quality of the craftmanship really showed over the chinese ones. However, I think the quality of the leather used is very poor. I work on a railroad and that is probably one of the toughest enviornments for footwear. I hit the top of my toe on the rail and a "chip" came out of the leather, imagine like a particle board. The leather is very dry, and the break in period is quite painful. I used some mink oil to soften them up but it still didn't do any good. My feet are really tore up, I have blisters, cuts and calouses. I had very hight hopes for these boots, especially considering the price; but I am highly dissapointed. I can't even wear them. These boots are also extremely hot, my feet were soaking wet. I work in the desert so the temps are over 100 now. These boots are not good at all in high temps. May be better suited for indoor use if you can make it through the break in period.

        Pros

        • Great Fit
        • Made in USA
        • Supportive

        Cons

        • Cheap Gore Tex
        • Hard Midsole

        Best Uses

        • Soft Ground Work

        Nice boots if you work on soft ground or not on your feet all the time.

        The second rate Gore Tex is not great. This is the second pair of boots with the product and I have thrown out both. The water proofing works fine but they don't breath.

        Danner also went cheap on the mid sole, the insole is the only cushioning. Danner sells other boots with a much better mid sole.

        I should have not been cheap and went with a better pair.

        • Fit

        Cons

        • none

        Best Uses

          I work underground construction from early spring until freeze up. These boots are perfect. They are very comfortable out of the box. Little break in is needed, anyone that says different does not have the proper size on. The boots are breathable, and keep my feet nice and dry. Even if I am standing in water/mud most of the day. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a great work boot.

          AWESOME BOOTS

          By Engineer Mike

            Cons

              Best Uses

                Very good quality built boots. I am a railroad engineer and couldn't be happier with these boots. I like them so much I have ordered another pair. The only thing I would like to see with these boots is to use the leather off of the Bull Run boots on these. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing. Keep up the good work and thanks for making these in the USA.

                Not super waterproof, tongue gusset should come up higher, w

                By Christobal

                from Nort h Carolina

                Pros

                • Ankle support
                • Comfortable
                • Nice Looking Suede

                Cons

                • Not waterproof

                Best Uses

                • Work

                I wish the tongue gusset were a little higher, and I wish the leather came with a DWR already applied. In the photo you can see the leather gusset only comes up to the first hook. This is an issue with water resistance, especially when walking through tall wet grass. Good boots all the same, though.

                They are not especially waterproof, despite the Gore-Tex bootie. I treated the leather with a silicone waterproofing spray, PER THE MANUFACTURER'S DIRECTIONS, and let them cure before wearing them. Walking through 3 or 4 inch high damp grass, I felt water trickle in around the toe box. After walking on concrete for a few minutes, my feet felt noticeably drier so I guess they breathe pretty well. Wore them in a light rain, felt a tiny bit of water seep in over the instep. Again, the sense of dampness dissipated somewhat after walking for a while in dry conditions again. When I took them off, they were wet in the toe box and damp underneath the insoles - the insoles were dry, but when I took them out the bottom inside of the boot was noticeably damp. (Stock insoles.) I think water gets in too easily around the stitching, but OTOH that same stitching allows a path for evaporation. The Gore-Tex bootie ought to be doing a better job of keeping outside water off my feet though.

                I agree with another reviewer, the midsole seems a bit skimpy. I bought replacement insoles for these boots, but when I took the stock insoles out I was surprised at how substantial they were. Hard plastic arch supports, with springy rubber inserts for the heel and ball and a deep heel cup. I still think my replacement insoles will be better. The vibram OUTsole is good and robust. But I think the midsole could have been beefier and should offer more support - the better than average stock insoles seem to be there to make up for some deficiency in the midsole department. Perhaps the wedge sole quarry would offer better midsole support.

                I still haven't broken them in. They are good boots, but I think there are less expensive brands that might offer similar performance. These are not as comfortable or high quality as some Danners I have owned in the past.
