Smokejumpers and other wildland firefighters depend on their boots to perform in the most dangerous and demanding conditions. Danner's Wildland Firefighting boots have been a tool of the trade for decades. Each version just gets better and better. This boot looks like our original Flashpoint but has been re-engineered with an all-leather upper and with a foot-conforming heel and toe box.
We wanted to give wildland firefighters and smokejumpers the toughest, safest, most comfortable boot that human hands could build. To make it happen, we used Vibram® Fire Logger outsoles, special Nomex® stitching, and fire-retardant leather. We put these pieces together in a boot that was designed for exceptional comfort, fit, and durability.
The 74 last is designed specifically for traditional logger style boots containing a removable footbed. It offers a standard profile with a more regular fit. Boots on this last tend to fit true to size. This ensures a snug fit for terrain and activities that demand support and stability. If you do have a wider foot, we recommend ordering an "EE" (wide) or “EEEE” (extra wide) in this style.
