LaCrosse Footwear's Danner subsidiary has won a US$3.2m boot order from the US Department of Defense, the company's biggest single order of the year.

The new contract is for the supply of Danner's Marine Temperate boot, with LaCrosse confirming that the order constituted the company's largest one-time delivery order for 2008.

"The Marines trust Danner to deliver the best quality footwear for all kinds of weather, on time and according to their specifications," said Joseph P Schneider, LaCrosse president and CEO.

"We continue to be very proud to support our men and women in uniform by delivering outstanding products to meet their needs in the field."
