The Danner store in East Portland combines a large and attractive retail space with an actual boot workshop, glassed-off from the public. In line with my site's philosophy of Recycle/Reuse/Repurpose/Repair, Danner offers repair and remanufacturing of their boots, including stretching of boots that are too tight. I applaud such a company. They are so rare!

Danner is alive and well, located a couple miles east of the Portland airport (PDX) at 12021 NE Airport Way, north side of the road, zip 97220. This large, exciting store combines retail with boot repair/remanufacturing.
