To you, they're rugged work boots with waterproof GORE-TEX® liners and ground-chewing, ultra-stable soles. To a bootmaker in Portland, Oregon, they're a reason to get out of bed in the morning.


 
 
 

A great all-purpose work boot, the Rain Forest™ GTX® boot is lined in GORE-TEX® for breathable, waterproof protection and features full-grain leather for rugged durability.

Center lugs deliver maximum traction on wet and dry surfaces.

650 Last
The 650 last offers a sleek, slender profile with a more narrow fit. Boots on this last tend to fit those with a more narrow foot better than those with a wider foot. 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) 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.

    Comments about Danner Rain Forest Brown Plain Toe Work Boots:

    I use these boots in rugged terrain in most types of weather. They had a short break-in period and feel great - sometimes I forget I'm wearing boots. As someone who's often on their feet going over rough ground, foot-comfort is HUGE. I have pretty wide feet (EE), and these boots beat the comfort of the firefighting boots I had made from a custom last several years back. I ended up giving those away.

    At this point, my only constructive criticisms are as follows: Firstly, I wish they were available in a slightly thicker rough-out version; the smooth-finish exteriors are VERY vulnerable to scratching/cutting just by moving through heavy brush or over rocky terrain. Secondly, they could have a bit more arch support, but I dig the way included insole grabs my heel.

    That's it - considering ordering a second pair as backup.

      Comments about Danner Rain Forest Brown Plain Toe Work Boots:

      Growing up on a farm in the Midwest, I've owned several pair of workboots. Recently, I've been through 3 pair of Redwings that lasted only months, in addition to causing a pinched nerve in my big toe and a nasty irritation on the top of my feet.

      After addressing my toe issue, my podiatrist advised me to search for "a quality pair of boots". That search ended with my first pair of Danner's.

      These boots broke-in easily. The narrow fit allows me to lace them tightly without causing any irritation on my foot.

      This is, simply, the most comfortable pair of boots that I've ever owned. The fit, features, and style are great.

      What led me to Danner was the fact that they are American made. What will lead me back is the construction of these boots. The folks at Danner truly know what they are doing.

        I'm getting 3+ years per pair, which is unheard of in this country. I'll buy my fourth pair next spring.

        Comfortable, but leather didn't last

        Pros

        • Comfortable

        • Not Durable/ Wears Easily

        Best Uses

        • Harsh Terrain

        Comments about Danner Rain Forest Brown Plain Toe Work Boots:

        I rely on durable boots for seasonal forestry work. I purchased my first pair of Danner boots (Rainforest plain toe) through the website in spring 2011. For the first few months they were comfortable and offered good support (I added insoles from another company). Unfortunately by fall 2012 one of the boots had developed a wear hole in the back, just above the heel, despite me only wearing them seasonally (perhaps 6 months out of the year) and only using Danner boot dressing and water proofing gel. I was disappointed by this, as I was expecting the leather to last several years.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Customer service via online-chat was friendly, although I wish they could have made an exception to their warranty policy, considering the circumstances
