Danner ICH boots review

The Danner 7 inch ICH Boots are weather tough and built for the long trek.

These boots have been used on the battlefield, key reinforcements make all the difference and the same principle holds in bootmaking.

Here Danner bolsters the ICH heel and ankle so you can stand your ground under any circumstances.

Danner ICH boots review
I replaced my shredded military boots and again these were the best boots I have worn in and out of combat. These Danner boots as well as my models are tops for my feet. With no break in required they were set to go hunting and hiking from the box. The ability to walk on rocks, sand and gravel cannot be beaten by any other boot I have worn.

The ankle is completely supported and traction is like a mountian goat. I can not see any real difference between the tan and olive colors. The uppers will not cause blisters from tight lacings. I did use an insole as my feet are very flat-something that a career in Special Operations did not cause! I have been wearing these daily since their arrival.

Question: What is a good way to protect your toes and feet from getting blisters during hiking?

Put this on your toes and feet and add a good pair of socks and you will be good to go.

We know guys who have used this cream and gone through GORUCK and Spartan Races with no blisters at all.

You can pick up a tube or Trail Toes for about $13 and this is cheap insurance to protect your feet. My buddy got blisters on his toes and I let him borrow a little bit. I bailed him out and he bought me beers later so it was a good deal for both of us.

The Dannner Crater Rim boots are nearly the same boot but are about a half inch shorter. Both run true to size on me. My size 12 did not have to be ordered smaller or larger to use thick socks. I had sore feet due to the rainy weather and I began to wear these boots and my feet felt supported and rested at the end of the day.

If your going to get the Danner boots you will need to get a great pair of socks to go with them. We prefer the Smartwool Men’s Hiking Medium Crew Sock. These socks will last a long time and provide great support to prevent blisters and wick away excess sweat.
