    Generally I'd say Danner > Red Wings but comparing those to models... definitely the Red Wings.

    Welt construction, quality outsole, and Made in the USA > chinese made half stitched / half glued construction with "lightweight" outsole.

    I'd love to get some Acadias but I need a zipper for easy on/easy off (paramedic).

    As I said in the other thread, I typically wear Danner patrols and love them. I tried the Strykers and just don't care much for them. I bought them for the same reason, quick on/off for work. But the comfort of my Patrols over the Strykers wins hands down to me.

    That being said, I agree with sprite. Comparing the two I'd say Red Wings. I had a pair of their work boots similar to those when I was 18-19 and had no issues. The Strykers just seem a little cheap IMO.

    But you can get a front zip to lace into the 10" Acadias for another option(which would be my choice).

    I had horribly luck with my last pair of Danners, turns out they are having several of the models made in China. My 6 year old US made Acadia's are still going strong, my 14 month old Chinese Quarry 6"ers are not.
