Brad Bennett of Well Spent took a trip down to Oregon to visit the Danner Boots factory. While there, he got to see how new boots are manufactured, and how the factory also recrafts old pairs of boots — a testament to the durability of the product.

The photos are pretty cool, but the most interesting part is that he and the other bloggers on the trip got to actually go hiking in a pair of Danners to break them in. We're not sure what's better to look at: a sick pair of hiking boots or the lush greenery of the Pacific Northwest. We'll call it a tie. [Well Spent]
