Whether you’re a hunter, logger, hiker, fireman, police officer, farmer, or Marine, you know the value of a comfortable, well-made boot to support and protect your foot. Turns out that the makers of Danner boots know it too, which, perhaps, explains why the company has been building some of the best boots around since 1932. After all, customers like quality at a good price.

Danner was founded during the Great Depression when unemployment reached an astounding 25 percent in the United States. As the economy healed a little, entrepreneurs like Charles Danner were able to use relatively low raw material prices to good advantage.
