Super Rain Forest 8" Black 200G

Style No. 11700
$395.00
USA Crafted

We didn't have to give them triple stitching. We didn't have to use leather-over-leather construction. We didn't have to completely overbuild them. But we did. That's what makes these boots worthy of the name Danner.

 
 
 
 

Product Details

Overview

Made in the USA, the Super Rain Forest™ GTX® boot is a great all purpose workboot that gets the job done. Double thick leather provides for exceptional durability, and the GORE-TEX® lining provides breathable waterproof protection. Stitchdown construction guarantees a wider platform for greater stability and support underfoot. 200G Thinsulate™ adds lightweight warmth and insulating properties.

How it Fits

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.

I have gone through so many boots over the past few years. Most have been off brands, or brands that have been outsourced and went from good boots to dollar store specials, i finally saved up and purchaced a pair of these when my uncle recomended them, and i have not regretted it! they fit perfectally right out of the box, broke in within a few days, they look awesome, and there are made right in my home state! There is not a job or task these boots cant stand up to! I am extremely hard on shoes/boots, these take all the punishment i throw at them, hunting, logging, hiking, ect. There is only one small problem, the factory laces that came with them didnt last long, the lace hooks chewed them up fast, but that might just be me, i like my boots really tightly laced, i had to find a different set of laces that were more durrable, but other than that these boots are 100%! Nothing says quality like Danner, made in Oregon, made in the USA, made to last!

The fatigue fighter footbeds I mentioned in my last review are from a pair of 400G Quarrys that were like walking on air right out of the box. Those boots, though Danner says won't last as long as the Super RFs, seem plenty tough, aren't US-made, were comfy from the get-go and were about $150 cheaper than the SRFs (although I had to exchange them 2 times to get a matching pair). I have other Danners and US/non-US made boots that don't have the stiff midboard problem and don't hurt the soles of my feet. Going to give a bit more time to see if they break-in and if the problem resolves itself. Based on the other positive comfort reviews I wonder if there is a problem with my pair specifically. I will update this review when conclusive.

    Comments about Super Rain Forest 8" Black 200G:

    I purchased these boots about nine months ago after wearing out a pair of Danner Quarry boots. The Super Rain Forest has been the most comfortable boot that I have ever worn. The craftsmanship of the boots is far superior to any boots on the market. The break in period after purchase was not as lengthy as I expected. As a Union Electrician that works in many different environments, I appreciate the versatility of these boots. Thank goodness there is a great American made work boot. These are the absolute best boots on the market. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother buying boots that don’t have the Danner stamp. While they are a little pricey, they’re worth every penny. Back pain and sore arches are a thing of the past after switching to Danner. The quality of the leather is impeccable. Thank you Danner!!!

        I have worn Danner rain forest and Super rain forest boot's for the last 20yrs as a Park Ranger in Oregon. I purchase a new pair about every 4 years. I do not take good care of my boots and they still don't leak. Because of my Danner boots over 75% of the other Rangers I work with have switched to them. I never consider any other brand.

          Use upland hunting in all weather conditions. I have never gotten wet feet wearing these boots. No complaints with these. They do cost more, but are a fantastic long term investment. I have had mine for over 3 years. Two thumbs up on these ones Danner!
