Hiking Boots

My old LL Bean hiking boots had been purchased in 2002, so I guess it was okay that they were toast. I got a good decade out of them and they went many places with me.

Imagine my excitement to discover union made, made in the USA hiking boots! The company is called Danner and the workers are organized with UFCW (United Food and Commercial Workers) Local 555.

Super comfortable, very supportive, and very waterproof. Love ’em. I bought these about a year ago and they have been all over Maine with me already.

  1. Hi, love your blog — always searching for non-imported goods myself. I also visited Danner.com for low-cut hiking boots (mine are falling apart at every seam), and the thing I found is that the leather ones are made in USA while most of the non-leather boots are “imported”. If you find a company making low-cut, non-leather hiking boots in the US or Canada, let me know! I wonder if New Balance has any lightweight hikers… will check them next. Thanks for all your great posts!
