Marines can score a limited-time deal on USMC RAT boots


Danner, the original designer of the Marine Corps’ Rugged All Terrain boot, is having a limited-time sale on “second quality” boots.

Both the temperate and hot-weather versions of the boots, normally $340 and $320 respectively, can be had for $79. That is potentially a huge break for Marines who need a replacement pair.

Second quality, however, means the boots aren’t aesthetically perfect.

“Form, fit, and function. These are the standards we will never jeopardize. A second quality boot maintains these standards and is only marked as second quality due to cosmetic defects. It requires the critical eye of our craftsmen to catch these small imperfections,” according to Danner’s web site. “Common defects for second quality boots include things such as scuffs, veins, or scars in the leather, slight color variations, and different colored hardware.”

They are available in limited sizes and only for three days or until supplies run out, but those who jump on it quickly could score a sweet deal.

As of noon today, temperate boots were available in sizes 4, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5, 12, and 12.5. Hot weather boots were available in 4, 5, 8.5, 9, 10, 10.5, 11, 13.5, 14, 14.5, 15, 15.5, and 16.
