If we had to nominate a single company to embody (and define) the modern work boot market, it would certainly be Danner. The famed shoe manufacturer has spent well over half a century administering the finest trade-oriented footwear around, and now, they’re looking to expand into the realm of everyday-wear with the newly introduced Bull Run Lux.
The Bull Run Lux boot is crafted with the utmost attention to detail, retaining many of the notable aspects of Danner’s time-tested work boot lineup. Here, you’ll find the same premium Nubuck leather upper, lightweight outsoles, and durable construction as their heavy-duty workman’s silhouettes, but with a more “stylish” principle. Admittedly, the Lux cater toward a fashion-minded audience, but that’s not a bad thing — they still harbor the brand’s renowned fiberglass shank, Ortholite footbed, and 503 last, providing wearers with a comfortable, rugged style that doesn’t lend itself to a hard-wearing work boot. As with most Danner products, the Bull Run boots are made entirely in the USA, so you can rest assured knowing that you’re getting the best boots in the industry, straight from local shoemakers.
