From Luke Sedecca and Ted Nicholson:
Luke and Ted at the shop both own this boot. They cannot express enough how the Bull Run is their favorite boot ever! This a great everyday boot. They are unbelievably comfortable. This boot makes standing on your feet for 10 hours a breeze. We love the fact that they are made in the USA. $180 for a USA made pair of boots is very hard to beat. Once again, the comfort of this boot will blow you away! The best part about the Bull Run is once you wear out the sole out, you just get it replaced. Next time you’re in the shop, do yourself a favor and try a pair of these on.
From Mark H. Walters:
The Danner rep showed me the Mountain 600 boots last summer and I liked the look, but more importantly I loved the weight. I told him, like most items in the shop, I would need to test them for myself before D&H would commit to carrying the boot. I am always looking for footwear that I can wear on the shop for all day comfort and wear out on my urban hikes on the concrete. I find that these conditions will put footwear to the test even more than on the trail. Mother earth is forgiving, concrete is not.
I proceeded to wear the Danner Mountain 600 every day that I was scheduled to be on the shop floor for a full day. They were so comfortable that I didn’t even think about them. The only thing I had to think about in the morning was what socks should I wear. I found that the boot is built about a half size too large. This allowed me to wear the thickest Fox River merino wool boot socks, but I wish I had a half size down for the summer months. I will probably get another pair to wear with socks that aren’t so bulky in the warmer months. No problem, these are so light and comfortable I don’t have a problem with two pairs.
Well, the boots definitely passed the test and we placed an order for the boots at the beginning of April and just received them in the shop. Can’t wait to have customers try these great boots on their next adventure!
