Danner mountain lights are so chunky. Hard to make them look good I think. Had to get rid of mine. Also they cut my ankles up to fuck.

I basically just live in these all year round.

I like the viberg hikers at Great Divide but can't really justify when I have Danners.

Yeah the mountain lights are a bit too walking boot for me. Quite like the Danner bull run though. Anyone got any?

Got a nice pair second hand, but incredibly uncomfortable/painful at the top, near the bottom of the laces. Is this just thr breaking in process?

I did have, found them no where near red wing quality, plus the toe box is very weird after wearing wings

I have Alden, Viberg, Red Wing, Trickers, Visvim, Chippewa boots. But if the weather is really bad, I will wear my Danner as they will keep all elements at bay and are really comfortable.

Think they used to make DMs and when DM outsourced to China and went to shit they still made decent versions.

I love my Danner mountain lights too.

Opinions on Danner Mountain Lights vs Paraboot Avoriaz?
I like the look of the Paraboot, slightly slimmer but the Danner has Goretex lining.

Leather on the Paraboots does look nice but they seem to be hiking inspired whereas the Danners are the real deal.

very round compared to wings and found them very uncomfortable on the toes, maybe I just had a dud pair though.

Solovair shape is slightly different from docs, more formal. I went for made in england docs quality is banging
