Master of all trades
In 1936, Charles Danner moved to the Pacific Northwest to build the best boots loggers had ever known. As the industry grew, so did the need for more versatile footwear options. Nearly a century later, we’re still developing boots for tradesmen and women with the same dedication to craftsmanship as we did back then. The Steel Yard work boot blends our legendary durability with game-changing comfort and a variety of performance features to meet the demands of every job across the site.

Unlock on-the-job comfort
When you're on the job, the last thing you need is aching feet, so we created the Steel Yard with comfort in mind. Our patented Danner® Comfort System cradles your feet with cushioning and support, while our thick polyurethane midsole rebounds energy with every step.

The right boot for any job.
The Steel Yard offers something for everyone on any job site and in any environment. Choose from Danner® Dry Waterproofing or a breathable mesh liner to keep feet dry and comfortable. Select ASTM-certified metatarsal or toe protection if needed. Electrical hazard protection is part of the package in every Steel Yard boot. And when temperatures plummet, the Steel Yard is also available with Thinsulate insulation for extra warmth.

True to the Danner tradition, the Steel Yard is built to take a beating and still perform admirably. We start with a full-grain leather upper, add a goodyear welt, then stitch it to the outsole for maximum durability. An internal steel shank provides long-lasting support where you need it most.

Sure-footed security for every worksite
The Danner Steel Yard outsole keeps you steady on your feet, no matter what the terrain. Our oil- and slip-resistant rubber compound offers superb grip in every step while the 90-degree heel makes for easy work climbing ladders and stairs. Choose the wedge outsole option for a design that won't track debris and reduces pressure points underfoot for greater comfort.
