They just did it, still had to spend over £900 because I wanted the Colour 8 Shell Cordovan and couldn't find any UK supplier with them. Cry

Expensive… but when you factor in Mrs X wearing them as well it makes financial sense.

^ Supposed to be up tomorrow so pounce if you can.

Question for anyone that has purchased Danner Mountain Lights, did yours come with the white heel cup insole?

No - and even if they did I would get this instead https://global.danner.com/airthotic-foam.html or an insole from an outdoors shop.

Size up from shoe size .5 or 1.0 for wide feet / thick socks as well imo.

I like the look of the Paraboot, slightly slimmer but the Danner has Goretex lining.

I've tried both on and went with the Avoriaz. They're slimmer whereas the MLs were too bulky for what I wanted to wear them with.

The Mountain Light has proper outdoor pedigree compared to the Avoriaz, which is more of a lifestyle shoe. Avoriaz don't have Gore-Tex, but the leather is really thick and but I've worn them in rain and snow and they've been fine. Including in the countryside and walking around ski resorts.

If I wanted some boots for serious hiking, I'd buy something modern and lightweight anyway.
