LaCrosse Footwear Inc announced its Danner subsidiary received a new $6.7 million delivery order from the U.S. Army for the Danner Combat Hiker boot. Danner anticipates delivering this order of the Combat Hiker boot beginning in April through August of this year.

“The United States Army´s request for additional pairs of our Combat Hiker signifies the boot's proven performance in the field,” said Joseph P. Schneider, president and CEO of LaCrosse Footwear Inc.

“For the past year and a half, Danner has been working closely with the U.S. Army to develop and test footwear that provides extended wear and high performance in harsh mountain terrain and challenging weather conditions. Danner continues to remain focused on combining a 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 proud to serve the men and women who serve our country.”

Danner provides premium performance footwear built to meet the demands and specific requirements for multiple branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. The new 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. These boots will be produced in the Company's ISO 9001-2000 certified manufacturing facility located in Portland, Ore.
