    • Looks like a bunch of PLA boots (made in chicomland). Only the Rocky has sewn sole/all others are glued POS.

    • Six months prior I misplaced my work and after that I was blessed sufficient to falter upon a extraordinary site which truly spared me. I begun working for them online and in a brief time after I’ve begun averaging 15k a month… The finest thing was that cause I am not that computer smart all I required was a few essential writing aptitudes and web get to to begin.
      ) AND Great Luckiness.:

  1. Lowa Zephyr gtx mk2 or Garmont for me, but these seem like great options as well.

  2. 5.11 must use Chinese children’s feet for their boot lasts. Have never found a pair wide enough for my swim fin feet.
    Danner and Rocky, on the other hand, make some very comfortable W I D E boots.

    • I’m just the opposite . . . I have razor heels!

      Other than Lowa, nobody I know of makes off the decent off-the-rack hiking or combat boots in a narrow width. Alas, Russell Moccasin no longer makes custom boots (I have two pairs of bespoke RM dress shoes that have been my standard business / courtroom shoes for two decades!)

    • 1 old guy to another, Red Wing still makes EEE shoes and boots. Been buying them since I was a kid. They ain’t cheap, but I’ve never been disappointed in them. Usually get a couple years out of a pair.

      • my cousin may truly get cash in their additional time on their pc. their dearest companion had been doing this 4 some place around a year and at this point cleared the commitment. in their littler than normal house and acquired an uncommon vehicle.

        that’s our strength here====)>>

      • @oldmaninAL

        Forgot all about RedWing. May have to take a new look at them.
        Thank you for the suggestion.

      5.11 has a tendency to run ‘smaller’ than advertised size on clothing and shoes/boots. To get a more correctly fitting size in 5.11 – for clothing go up one size from your normal size they advertise – for boot/shoes go up at least 1/2 size (some people a whole size depending on the model of shoe/boot) and one width wider from your normal size they advertise.

      5.11 uses ‘exact size’ measurements in their manufacturing for material, not ‘clothing/shoe’ industry sizing in their measurements. They do this to use the minimum amount of material (which is why their stitching has a tendency to come apart under prolonged hard use).

      For example, a say 38 ” wear waist in ‘clothing/shoe’ industry sizing measurement in manufacturing is really 38.5 ” to 39 ” (and a little more most times) in material sizing in manufacturing and its ‘sewn down’ to the ‘approximate’ size (to accommodate variations in a size, e.g. 38.25 inch waist instead of 38 inch waist) because of the way they ‘sew’ things together so there is a little bit more so although its marked 38″ and fits it actually came out 38″ plus a little more – but 5.11 has its own way of doing things and its 38″ exactly and a little under after they sew things together so compared to what you are used to for a 38″ waist fit they run smaller even though marked 38″ waist so you need to go up in size for 5.11 to get a fit, and its about the same for their shoes/boots.

      This is not to say that 5.11 will not fit for normal expected size for everyone. Someone will find that a 5.11 advertised size fits what they were expecting for their ‘normal size’ because it happens. But its subjective, especially with shoes/boots, because what they were used to and been wearing, their body may have changed a little (e.g. weight loss, muscle mass change, etc…) and enough so they are ‘between’ sizes so both the 5.11 clothing and their normal clothing of their expected normal size may both seem to fit suitably enough.

      So are 5.11 shoes/boots/clothing any good? Well, yeah, they are for normal wear with a little hard use thrown in sometimes and they are used widely by many and have somewhat good customer reviews overall. They will last a while for some and not a while for others, they are for average users and ‘heavier people’ but not really something recommended for prolonged hard use wear.

      • correction for “This is not to say that 5.11 will not fit for normal expected size for everyone.”

        should have been …

        This is not to say that 5.11 will not fit for normal expected size for someone.

  3. You’ll see a lot of Muck boots around here.
    I had a pair of Rocky’s, got them for work boots, feet were always clammy.
    Maybe they are better now?

  4. Would be nice if it were mentioned where each of these are made. Some of us prefer to avoid crap made in China whenever possible, so it matters.

    • 5.11 is made in USA but uses imported material from China and other sources. However, they do on occasion use a contract OEM manufacturer in China.

      Muck Boots are made in China. (company is owned by Rocky)

      Rocky boots its a mixed bag. Although they used to make their shoes in the U.S. (and still do for a Berry compliant boot) they do use materials from China and other places, and the majority of their products (the boot in this article for example) are now made in China, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic (they own the factories in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. The China entity is an OEM contract manufacturer that makes shoes/boots for lots of companies who may advertise made in USA).

      Danner makes about 33% of their products in the USA, and like every shoe/boot company in the U.S. (and world) they do use materials imported from China and other sources. The rest of their products are made in in China, Vietnam, and Italy. The Danner Fullbore in this article is not made in the US, some are made in China and some in Vietnam depending on the manufacturing date. ‘Danner Boots’ became a subsidiary of LaCrosse Footwear, Inc (see below) in 1994. Danner Boots makes boots for the Marine Corps under contract to the DOD.

      Lacrosse brand boots, (LaCrosse Footwear, Inc. … a Japanese owned company based in Portland, Oregon.), are made either in the US or in random OEM manufacturers in Asia (usually China or Vietnam). However, the LaCrosse Ursa MS in this article is made outside the US and depending on the date produced could have been either China or Vietnam but there may be another OEM manufacturer too as LaCrosse is kinda random on which OEM manufacturer in Asia it uses.

  5. The Rocky boots look okay. I hate the way they make most tall boots insulated. You have to wear something in the summer.

  6. Just so people know, there is no shoe or boot from a U.S. company that is truly completely in reality ‘made in USA’. Its the same around the world. Either they use materials imported from China or sometimes other countries, or they are partially actually manufactured in China or another country and then assembled in the US, or they are fully made by an OEM manufacturer in China or another country.

    ‘Made in USA’, due to loop holes in the law, does not always mean actually completely made in the USA. Its the difference between ‘legal truth’ and ‘reality truth’. There are ‘conditions’ that exist which take advantage of the loop hole in the law which allow a company to claim “Made in USA” legally publicly or to the public (‘legal truth’) when in ‘reality truth’ by importing certain ways or contract interpretation or implementation it could be made outside the US and a company still able to claim ‘Made in USA’.

  7. Asolo and Zamberlan are some dang good boots.
    Both made in Italy.
    Not sure where they source their materials but the quality is outstanding!

  8. Schnee’s all the way, straight from Montana. I have two pair, use a pair of Beartooth’s in early season whitetail and all of turkey, and just had a new pair of Divide mids delivered, they will be my kick it in the woods boots, or more once I break ’em in.
    Pricey, but the best boots I’ve ever owned.
