Danner 6" Steadfast Hunting boots for men

Verified Buyer Reviewed by redeyehawk from New hampshire on Thursday, December 8, 2016
This boot will be useful for my purpose, woods walking. With these and another pair, Irish Setter Havocs (6"), I have had to slice out most of the gusset on either side of the tongue to make them comfortable. The intent of these gussets are to keep out debris and water . . . however when they fold over to fit in the shoe, the extra material bunches and renders the shoe uncomfortable. I do this with almost all my boots, I slice it out and also cut the seams and remove the ends of the gusset along the lace trim. Have not had any regrets doing this, I am very careful and patient as I perform the task.
I find these boots have a very high quality insole, quite thick and of good design, firm, yet soft enough to have a nice cushioning effect. I prefer the six inch to taller boots which tend to bind the upper ankle too much.
The boots overall are quite firm, I am a 11.5, 2E, but usually have to buy 12, 2E to get a good fit), I'll wear these with a medium thick hunting sock for great cushioning, warmth and support on uneven ground. After the adjustment I did, I am very happy with the fit, quality, toughness, and comfort of the Steadfast.
