User Review: Danner Mountain Light II
Materials: full gain leather and gortex lined
Use: rough trail and backpacking
Break-in Period: 2 weeks and a day hike
Price Paid: $210
I agree with the other reviewer. The Danner Mountain Lights are like a cadillac for the feet. They form to your feet and are oh so comfortable.. The Vibram Ketterling sole holds up well and the Goretex booty makes them all but impervious to water. I only have two words of advice and they are minor and my just be due to my feet.
Make sure to break them in as they are thick leather and take some time in the heal cup to get used to. After blistering once i switched to liner socks and now have no problems.. Also the Airthotic insole that comes with the boot is a bit plastic for my taste. All i did was switch it with a pair of superfeet inserts and Jumanji!!!-- magic happy feet.
While they may seem a bit heavy the weight pays off at the end of the day when your feet are not all bruised on the soles. Besides that they are so darn pretty.. What a beautiful boot. I sometimes hate getting them dirty, but that's what boot polish is for.
