LaCrosse Footwear Inc, a leading provider of premium, branded footwear for work and outdoor users, announced that it has received a new $5.0 million order from the U.S. Army for the Danner Combat Hiker boot. The Company anticipates delivering this order by the end of 2010 for soldiers in Afghanistan.

"We believe this order demonstrates that the United States Army trusts Danner to deliver the best quality footwear for extended wear and high performance in harsh mountain terrain and challenging weather conditions," said Joseph P. Schneider, president and CEO of LaCrosse Footwear, Inc. “Danner continues to remain focused on combining our deep understanding of what soldiers need in the field with our expertise in innovative product engineering, unique manufacturing capabilities and a passion for our craft.”

“We are particularly excited to fill this order from our new Danner factory in Portland, Oregon, where we have increased capacity to build expert footwear at the highest levels of quality and workmanship. We continue to demonstrate our ability to deliver our products on time, and to the exacting standards of quality our customers demand. We are proud to serve the men and women who serve our country.”

Danner provides premium footwear crafted to meet the demands and specific requirements for multiple branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. The Danner Combat Hiker is a full-grain leather hiker designed with a rugged Vibram outsole for traveling over uneven terrain while carrying heavy loads, a breathable Gore-Tex lining and a rubber rand surrounding the entire lower boot to protect against abrasion and damage from rock and scree. The Combat Hiker is also shorter than standard issue military boots in order to provide greater mobility during steep ascents and descents.
