Danner Mountain Light II - An on-going review

My sister has a pair of Mtn Light IIs. She loves them. I have a pair of Canadians and they have served me very well, and I tend to be pretty hard on gear. Not to mention lifetime boot re crafting services. Danner boots are truly an amazing product.
 
Hey just a recommendation . . . try the blue "super feet" insoles. There actually for running and require no trimming. I change them out about every 4-6 months max. since I wear my work boots daily. No pain and no shin splints.

Its been over a month now. I wear mine almost daily. Hope this pic goes through... Its not a close up, but these boots look great. I also got a nice set of Edge Technical gaiters over the holiday break. They have complimented the boots well.

Working in 2-5" of crusty snow doing SAR training this weekend. Feet stayed dry, warm, and quite comfortable during a snowy/wet day. Probably walked/hiked/broke trail for 4-6 miles, and stood around a lot - you may know how training events go. The boots did their job.

I tried several other insole solutions, and each of them seemed to fill up too much of the boot for my feet to be comfortable. I went back to the airthotics and use nice, thick socks and that seems to work well for me. Should've just stuck with it from the start, but I'm hard-headed like that at times. This current set up seems to be the best configuration for my feet and needs, and probably the cheapest solution, as well.

Glad to hear they are breaking in well,

they only get better with time, I took me nearly a year to get them to the point where they would never hurt, at all in any situation or time frame.

From this past weekend

 
Man I want a pair of those, but crap, I'm boot poor already. Two pair of Red Wings, 1 LL Bean Duck boot, 1 Asolo boot, 3 Salomans. 1 pair of road bike shoes and 1 pair mountan bike shoes. Wife would probably shoot me with one of my own too many guns if I got another pair of boots.
