Looking to get a pair of uninsulated tactical boots. Have looked at the Converse, Belleville, and 5.11. Any pro's, cons on these boots? Any other brands i should consider?

Oakley.Only problem being that they squeak like heck when the sole is wet.

Take a look at Rocky Boots, quiet as a mouse wet or dry and comfortable.

Bellvilles are reasonably priced and hold up well.

What makes those boots(Danner) tactical ,compared to other black boots ? Are they steel toe ? I have some Timberlands,they are uncomfortable,but they are most likely tactical.

Danners are what every other boot wants to be when they grow up.

Looked at the Danner site,and some of those boots look pretty cool.They are somewhat expensive,so I hope they are made in the USA?? I couldn't find any info where they are made on the website.

ETA:Made in Portland OR,right on.

Their expensive stitchdown boots are US made. The cheaper running shoe type hikers aren't.

The only Danners I've bothered trying are the popular Ft. Lewis winter boot. Those are great for cold weather. I wouldn't trade mine for anything.



Danner Acadia boots come in insulated and uninsulated versions.

I'm wearing those right now, mine are a year 1/2 old and still quite comfy.

It's been said already but... DANNER!!!!!

I've said it before...but the current issue Belleville boots are terrific, IMO. One of the most comfortable boots I've ever worn regardless of cost.

Uninsulated Danner Acadias.

Absolutly the best footwear I have ever bought. They didnt need to be broken in at all. Just strapped them on and wore them for 15 hours.

Hiking in a 78 acre chunk of land with my ar, a chest rig full of mags, hunting for armadillos, actually.

Good prices and you can pull the descriptions and pics of many different boots at one time.

Danner is the standard all others strive to compare to. You get what you pay for. I wear Acadias.
