Review: Danner Mt. Light Elkins from The Breakroom

My Breakroom purchase of Danner's Mt. Light Elkins arrived at my doorstep a few days ago and haven't left my feet since. Here's why.

My initial thought was how great these boots look but the real high marks lie in its comfort.

The boots came with a pair of Danner's airthoic (a heel insert) that only added to superior level of comfort. On the sunniest of days, you will be looking for a reason to wear these boots.

They come with black laces but I switched them with red Danner laces that I purchased earlier this year.

Danner says that only the boots marked as second quality are actually second quality on The Breakroom. These were not marked as second quality If you are in a rush, you can buy a pair here. But if you have patience, wait until your favorite pair of Danners appear in The Breakroom (click for invite) for half the retail price and quickly pull the trigger. 


  1. Just switched out to red laces myself. Seems like a natural transition after adding color laces to my dress shoes earlier this year.

  2. those red laces give the contrasting look to the designer shoe. love the combination. the shape and design and the flat sole .. definitely one of my choice

  3. Those boots are sick Skip. That "dimpled" leather adds real character. I was looking at a smooth finish myself. Haven't decided yet which pair I want. Those red laces definitely add some vibrancy. I think this time of year in Maine I'd choose orange, haha. Take care brother.


  4. Long time reader, first time commenter. Danner's are great boots, probably one of the most comfortable I've worn. Their RAT boots are popular with those of us here in Quantico and keep the feet feeling good after even a week in the field. Unfortunately I couldn't get away with red laces.

  5. Howdy! This is my 1st comment On Danner Black Boot Dressing so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading your posts. Thanks a lot!
