I picked up a beautiful pair of Danner Mountain Lights for 8 bucks last week. As far as I'm concerned, this is as good as a mountaineering boot gets. They have a timeless design made by hand in Portland Oregon by the best materials available.
My favorite part of this find is that they are still being sold new for about $322 more than I paid, plus mine are already broken in. Thank you who ever donated these gorgeous boots.
