I love my Strikers but they cant be resoled(or id just do that) also saw Rocky has a very similar looking boot in the Portland that can also be resoled..but i think youd have to get a shoe repair place ..unlike danner

I can find the HanWags Special Forces boots(German made) for around $245 but shipping is the killer on those.
I've been toying with the idea of getting a pair of Danner Acadias with my next boot voucher (within the next month) and paying the difference, and wondered if they'd clear the lobby. Up until now, I've mostly been wearing the 5.11 ATAC 6" with good results, though the sole wears out after 9 months to a year.
