Here is there link they ship for free both ways http://www.danner.com/. I have 3 pairs in the last 8 years they last a long time. All the guys I know in LE, Military, Contractors really like them and speak highly of them. Most of there boots are made in the USA and have many styles to choose from you can also have them resoled if you would like..

They "assemble" the shanties in MI,, but they buy the parts from all over the world. All they do is put 'em together and ship 'em out to their retailers. Does that still count??

This may have been posted elsewhere, I just turned on my computer a little while ago. I don't mean to steal your thread but I thought this would fit here.

Nothing more needs to be said... better to start at the bottom of this email and work your way up!!!
Ford, Chrysler and GM's contributions after 9/11

An interesting commentary...You might find this of interest:

'CNN Headline News did a short news listing regarding Ford and GM's contributions to the relief and recovery efforts in New York and Washington.

The findings are as follows.....

1. Ford- $10 million to American Red Cross matching employee contributions of the same number plus 10 Excursions to NY Fire Dept. The company also offered ER response team services and office space to displaced government employees.

2. GM- $10 million to American Red Cross matching employee contributions of the sam e number and a fleet of vans, suv's, and trucks.

3. Daimler Chrysler- $10 million to support of the children and victims of the Sept. 11 attack.

4. Harley Davidson motorcycles- $1 million and 30 new motorcycles to the
New York Police Dept.

5. Volkswagen-Employe es and management created a Sept 11 Foundation,
funded initial with $2 million, for the assistance of the children and victims of the WTC.

6. Hyundai- $300,000 to the American Red Cross.


7. Audi-Nothing.

8. BMW-Nothing.

9. Daewoo- Nothing.

10. Fiat-Nothing.

11. Honda- Nothing despite boasting of second best sales month ever in August 2001

12. Isuzu- Nothing.

13. Mitsubishi-Nothing.

14. Nissan-Nothing.

15. Porsche-Nothing. Press release with condolences via the Porsche website.

16. Subaru- Nothing.


17. Suzuki- Nothing.

18. Toyota-Nothing despite claims of high sales in July and August 2001.
Condolences posted on the website

Whenever the time may be for you to purchase or lease a new vehicle, keep this information in mind. You might want to give more consideration to a car manufactured by an American-owned and / or American based company. Apart from Hyundai and Volkswagen, the foreign car companies contributed nothing at all to the citizens of the United States ...
It's OK for these companies to take money out of this country, but it is apparently not acceptable to return some in a time of crisis. I believe we should not forget things like this. Say thank you in a way that gets their attention..

Who said it was fact! I should have prefaced it by saying "I received an email". Mea Culpa. Besides I don't view snopes as omnipotent.

Well, in this case Snopes, though maybe not 100% wrong, fails to tell how slow the importers were to respond.
We lived through 9/11 and followed the doings closely here on this Michigan Sportsman. At the time G.M. and Ford were right on top of giving to those who were harmed by the attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon. The import companies were VERY slow on the trigger until they saw what the U.S. companies were doing.

Don't get me wrong, I really respect all the money the big3 donated to the releif after 9-11.

BUT...

Aren't these the companies that are begging the gov't for money so they don't go under?

Maybe they should think of better uses for their money than pissing it away on freebies. If they did that (aka Toyota) they might actually be in danger of turning a profit once in while!

Regarding the OP...

Aren't Stanley Tools made in the USA? They say "Made in the USA with global materials" on them?
