My recomendation for 8" boots would be Danner. Danner makes a great boot. Go to Danner's Website to view their boots. Danner builds there USA boots on about three different lasts. If your foot is narrow to moderate in width, any of there boots that utilize there 650 last are superb. The 650 last has a slimmer fit and comes in widths ranging from "B" to "EE". I love their boots built on there 650 last. If your foot is moderate to wide, they offer a 610 last that is wider in the toe box and heal. Many of their work boot styles utilize this last. I don't fit the 610 very well because I have a slim foot. I am currently using one of there 610 last work boots called a plain toe Super Rainforest 8" Non Insulated with GTX. I have to where thick socks to get it to fit ok, however the Super Rainforest work boot uses there thickest 3.00 mm leather. If you are looking for stiff ankle support this boot is the best they make because of the thick leather. The boot is brutal to break in but once they are broke in they will probably out last you. My pair just won't die. If you happen to fit well with the 610 last, this will definitely be the boot for you. The plain toe Super Rainforest comes in either 8" or 10". These boots are not cheep but as I said above, they will outlast you. Don't consider any of their boots with half condura and half leather because these boots provide the least ankle support. You will probably want to stick with their work boot line or their military/duty line.
I prefer ordering direct from Danner. Call them rather than order through their Website so they can advise you on availability. Danner offers free shipping on your initial purchase and for your return. They send a pre paid return label with any boot order.
