Jeff B.wrote a review of Danner Mountain 600 Full-Grain Hiking Boot- Men's on December 9, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
If you love boots the way I love boots then do yourself a favor and take a look at the Danner 600 boot. The quality of construction and materials can’t be surpassed. I have owned several pairs of very expensive Italian and German made leather hiking boots (as well as other Danner leather boots), and none of them were as comfortable out of the box as the Danner 600. I have found my new all-time favorite boots. I’ve ordered them in two colors thus far.
I consider them a cool - cold weather boot as the full grain leather would be too hot for me in the summer where boots like the Salomon X Ultra Mid or low shoe would fit the bill.
In terms of eye appeal these boots are wonderfully designed with both classic as well as modern appointments. Sizing can be a bit tricky. The Danner website says to downsize by 1/2 size for the best fit. I followed their advice but found the boots to be too small and returned them for my normal size which works wonderfully and leaves me room for a pair of wool socks.
My first impression when wearing the boots the first time was that they were like wearing moccasins made of clouds... the cushioning is remarkable.
I can’t yet speak to their trail prowess, but for extreme comfort around town, in snow, and out for an evening, they are the best footwear I have ever owned. I have no doubt that the Danner brand name combined with excellent Vibram souls will make for a superb trail boot as well.
