Yes, boots. Spend any time outdoors in the wild — whether it’s shooting, hunting, hiking…whatever — and you’ll quickly learn the value of a pair of good boots.
I’ve owned a number of pairs of “tactical” or military-style boots. I’ve worn them while hunting, hiking and training. These are — without question — the most comfortable pair I’ve worn.
Danner makes the FullBores in two models, a smooth leather waterproof (Danner Dry) version and these, their suede and mesh style (Coyote Hot). They’re light and breathable which works really well here in Texas and adds greatly to their comfort factor.
Whether you’re out there shooting doves, breaking clays, or hunting hogs, FullBores will keep your feet happy.
Danner calls that Vibram sole their MegaGrip technology. Yes, that’s marketing speak. But the FullBores are incredibly sure-footed over virtually any terrain.
I’ve worn them around town and hiked with them now for a couple of months and it’s hard to take them off. I know…that sounds like an exaggeration. It’s not. Your feet feel cushioned, letting you go all day in them. These aren’t boots that that you’ll be dying to get off your feet at the end of the day (I have pairs of those, too).
They’re literally the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. They’re not inexpensive (they run about $150). But when it comes to shoes you’ll be relying on for day-long trips outdoors, what you put on your feet isn’t a place to cut corners. I’ve done that it it simply isn’t worth it.
I can’t recommend Danner FullBores highly enough. They definitely do not suck.
