Quick Overview

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.
Details

Completely overbuilt with triple stitching and double thick leather

Made in the USA, the Super Rain Forest GTX boot is a great all-purpose work boot that gets the job done. Double-thick leather offers exceptional durability, and the GORE-TEX lining provides breathable waterproof protection. Stitchdown construction guarantees a wider platform for greater stability and support underfoot.

Full-Grain Leather Upper
To ensure its quality, we put our leather through six different tests before making our selection. Our full-grain leathers are the strongest and most durable form of leather.
GORE-TEX® (GTX)
100% waterproof and breathable, GORE-TEX® liners ensure that no water gets in, while allowing sweat and moisture to get out.
Super Rain Forest Leather
The toughest leather we can find, it resists alkali, lime, and anything else you'd rather not get on your feet. We use double layers across the toe box and top of the foot for industrial strength.
Triple Stitched
Hyper-strong thread is used to triple stitch our toughest boots.
Electrical Hazard (EH) Protection
Meets or exceeds ASTM F2892-11 EH. Electrical hazard (EH) footwear is manufactured with non-conductive electrical shock resistant soles and heels.
Vibram® 132 Montagna Outsole
Using a premium, work specific compound, this outsole is more stable underfoot. The durable, deep-lugged rubber provides unparalleled traction in any work environment.
Stitchdown Construction
Handcrafted to provide a wider platform, our legendary stitchdown construction offers increased stability underfoot. Many of our stitchdown boots can be recrafted.
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.
Recraftable
Extend the life of your boot with our recrafting services. This boot is eligible for a number of services, including part replacement, leather care and restitching. See our Recrafting page.

These are not boots to be taken lightly. If you need a durable boot to go working hard all day in the muck, sludge, snow, and scree, these will do nicely. If you want a boot to go raking leaves or other light yardwork, you may want to go find a lighter model. These are heavy boots, require time and patience to break in, but are worth the effort.

These model Vibram soles do not have tons of shock absorption, I would not recommend them for standing on concrete all day long or extended walking times, but aftermarket insoles will help that. I would not call these weakpoints, just something to take into consideration. That said, I love these boots. I have been wearing boots with a wing in the name for 10 years, and after buying Danner, I will not be going back. I am a mason and beat the snot out of boots in varying condition worksites. I have not had any of the problems some of the other reviewers have had, no leaks, no soles coming apart, no loose threads, and would recommend them to anyone with heavy labor in their future. Plus, they are quite a handsome boot, and I have gotten compliments on them. Made in USA Danners are the way to go.

      Comments about Super Rain Forest 8" Black:

      I have owned about 8 pairs of danner boots and these are the worst boots that I have owned. I am a concrete foreman, I am on my feet 12 hours a day in all kinds of conditions. These boots run small. are hard to break in, did not come with any kind of insole other than a hard piece of plastic that danner calls an insole. Would not recommend these boots to any one that is on your feet for long periods of time.

        Comments about Super Rain Forest 8" Black:

        I have had my current pair of Danner Super Rainforest 8" boots for three years now and they are just as good as when I took them out of the box. I absolutely love them. I have only had to replace the laces once, not because they broke, I did it before it came to that. I also use Danner boot dressing on them probably once every two weeks. All in all good job guys, and I look forward to buying another pair in a year or so!!

        Comments about Super Rain Forest 8" Black:

        I owned a pair of Quarrys and have been less than satisfied with them,low quality,wear out quickly,uncomfortable,and more. But then I bought my Super Rain Forest with a steel toe(the boot shop I got them from special orders Super Rain Forest with steel toe). I love them! Very comfortable,good traction,Gore-Tex,good arch support,and Made in USA! I really believe that the problem with my Quarrys is that they are Chinese made. I will NEVER again buy Quarrys,but I am sold on the super Rain Forest!
