I like Danner for full, heavy work boots. My Acadias are awesome in that role. Their lightweight imported boots leave me much less impressed. My hikers of the last few years have been Keen Targhee. As with any boot they're improved by a high quality insole but the exteriors and soles have held up amazingly well.

They are us made and leather and look like a conventional hiking boot. They are very sturdy.
If that's the mountain combat boots you are talking about, I had them. They are also made by Belleville, or at least used to be. I had both the cold and hot weather variants in coyote. I loved the looks but the width on both models was ridiculously out of spec for a "wide" marked boot. I could hardly put them on, never mind actually walk in them. It was a shame since it was a great price for a bombproof pair of boots.
