Some of the Danner Boots are still USA made I hope.
Same with many boot makers having 2 production sources Chippewa and maybe Redwing do the same.

Good luck!
All the outsourcing here to either commie or muzzie run countries is making me puke!

I'm not broke or rich and finding USA made stuff or stuff that'll fit me and my budget is damn difficult.

Plus being a Sasquatch 6ft plus with a big chest and size 15EEEE+ US SIZE feet don't help.

As right now I only have one pair of combat boots made in the USA and they are milsurp Addison's just a copy of the old Danner leather/cordura ones.

Then I got a couple of different pairs from chinko pinko land marketed here by Avenger Boots. One is a heavy duty nonmagnetic, puncture resistant composite safety toe and the other a plain non ST work boot of similar rating otherwise. Both over the ankle. Old style hiking work boots basically.

Not my first choice to buy commie clod hoppers but about my only choice anymore.

I went online and it seems a few of the Danner boots are still made in the USA, those are the ones that are twice the price of the foreign made range, the local ones started at $380 so that is not good value for me given the exchange rate, that puts those to around $500+ aud
I might have to give it a miss!
One thing I have noticed though is, prices for everyday things have increased quite a bit since I was last here 5.5 years ago, couple that with a weaker Aussie dollar has made this trip a bit more expensive than I thought it was going to be!!

On a positive note though, I got in some range time a couple of weeks ago, finally got to shoot an AR-15 and a 1911. Both were very accurate and I had a lot of fun!

That's good to hear but not about the boots.

Glad you got some trigger time in.
