World’s Best Combat Boots

This isn’t a top 10 review like our usual posts as there is absolutely no point, nobody makes a combat boot that is in the same league as the Made in USA line from Danner, period. They are the World’s Best Combat Boots. We have worn more than our share of combat boots from many, many brands to form this opinion that we feel is fact rather than opinion. In this life you get one pair of ankles, one pair of knees and a pair of hips, wear garbage boots and damage any of those and life becomes far less fun.

 

The Danner Made in USA line is recraftable so when you damage them or wear the long wearing Vibram sole out, send them in and get them repaired by the craftsmen that made them. Danner’s are made to last decades, not one tour and into the trash like most of the offshore runner style boots most companies are making. The Danner also has a Fibreglass shank to protect the bottom of your foot, if you have ever jumped down somewhere onto a rocky surface and caught a pointy rock in the ball of your foot while wearing cheap boots you will know what we mean. It will be something you won’t soon forget.

 

There is a time and place for the hiking boo/shoe style of combat footwear and we will cover that in a future article. There are many that are great for specific applications given realistic expectations for what they are but none are on the same tier as the Danners for quality and protection. Well, on to the good stuff. Below we list all of the 8″ or taller Danner Made in USA line of boots specific to the Military or Law Enforcement application.
