Sorry about reviving an old thread. Does anybody have any experience with getting a LE/MIL discount from Danner? I'm currently browsing Danner through AAFES and the prices are kind of a let down right now. Please, can somebody advise?

I wore Converse 8" SZ boots when I worked as a hospital tech and out on an ambulance. The pair I'm wearing I've had for close to 2 years of hard work, and other than scuffed up (since I never bother polishing them) they are in great shape still

Oakley. Best boots I've had yet. Converse is a close second. Danners made my feet hurt so bad that it would take most of a three-day weekend to where they were ready to go back to work.

I would like to hear this, too. I have read that you have to call for the discount, and I have no excuse (other than laziness) for not calling myself, but I figure it's worth asking...

Has anyone tried the new UnderArmour boots yet? I've been wearing their tennis shoes for two years and absolutely love them...by far the most comfortable pair of shoes for everyday wear I've ever owned. I'm hoping the boots are the same! Can anyone advise?

Can't say i'm in pressed they seem a little big for my feet, even though I ordered the same size boots as what I was currently wearing.

If you are inside on concrete all day, I would point you toward an athletic shoe base.

Converse.

Adidas.

Oakley SI.

I'm looking for any suggestions you guy's may have. My Dad wears Altama Jungle boots and really likes, but I'm not sure if I want to immediately buy a pair because they work for him.

I'm looking in the $100-200 price range. I'd like them to be comfortable and able to accept my orthopedic insoles. No other real limitations besides that.
are you not allowed to wear tennis shoes? i got a pair of all black asics and probably will never wear boots again

About a dozen guys at my work have them. They like them a lot. They say their Military and Civi boot size runs true with them.

I am holding off till I can try some pairs on as I run between a 9 1/2 and 10 1/2 based on brand (My feet are between reg and wide, and I have a high instep). I was about to get some size 10 and decided I would wait.

Rocky S2V, Oakely Assault, and the UA boots are next on my list.

Cav, thanks. I've got a pair of Rockys now that are super comfortable so I'll wear these until they are worn out then check out the Under Armour boots. I wore a pair of Oakley SI Assault Boots for a year or so...they held up nicely until I worked in a rainstorm. Feet didn't stay dry so they got pitched to Goodwill the next day. Like I said, I love underarmour and if anyone is looking for a pair of nice training shoes, try their shoes.

You do have to call for the discount. You have to have a .mil, .us, or .gov email address though. My primary one is a .org so I couldn't do it. They have since added a .us and .gov email address and I just haven't called them back yet.

Well that counts me out...we have a .org.

I have two pairs of Rocky Portlands, both of which are on their second set of soles (and yes, they can be resoled), and after five years of wear, they are still good boots. Plus, working in Corrections or Detention, you may have to pass through a metal detector. I don't know about the Danners because I have not worn them in years, but the Rocky Portlands will not set our metal detector off. This can be a huge plus in itself. ****** has good prices, and I hear their customer service is better these days. I would at least check their pricing.

Here's a photo and a sample price:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Mens-ROCKY-Portl...item7dbc9ddd33
Anyone can sell products with 90-95% customer satisfaction (even ******). It is how you deal with the other 5-10% that tells you a lot about a company. I’ve been in sales and customer service most of my life and I have never seen a company as bad as ****** in fulfilling their commitments and dealing with problems they create. Here is a small excerpt from one of half a dozen emails I have sent them over the last 2 months:
1. The first case was purchased and paid for very quickly. There was a significant delay in shipping and something of a delay after it was said to have been shipped.
2. The second case was held because the online salesperson wanted a form filled out and faxed in. This was a repeat purchase of an identical item, but I went ahead and filled out the form.
3. The third case arrived today. It was very odd that it came in a UPS Express box rather than the actual manufacturer’s case as before, once I got inside I realized why. This was a customer return from Mark H. in Clinton, Mississippi. Not only is it a customer return which would make anyone wary, when I opened the box it contained only nine boxes of ammunition instead of ten. Ammo is perhaps the most critical component for a firearm and apparently this came in to ****** and was shipped back out without anyone even opening the box???

The bottom line is, a company doesn’t get a mountain of bad press for no reason. In ******’s case, they work diligently to earn every piece of bad feedback they get.
