Product Description

You bring the heat every mission-but when the mission brings the heat right back, the Scorch is here to serve. It's built first for breathability thanks to a lightweight upper patterned with mesh panels*. The Plylolite midsole and the speed lace system work together to make it light, agile and ready when you are-while the outsole is slip resistant and designed for stability. When the heat is on, the Scorch is extra breathable to keep you cool all the way down.

Lightweight, strategically patterned upper for maximum air circulation (mesh panels are transparent and may reveal sock color or pattern)
Semi-locking YKK® Side-Zip
Polishable toe
Breathable mesh lining
Speed lacing for quick adjustments
Cushioning open-cell OrthoLite® footbed
Danner® Plyolite™ EVA midsole offers lasting support and rebound
Nylon shank
Danner® Scorch outsole is slip resistant and designed with a stability control arch

This is a 2ish (purchased April 2018) year review and not going to be as lengthy has my July 2018 review but most of my comments remain true. Recap: Active Duty military in a non operational status (riding a desk). Bought these boots hoping for additional comfort and decrease in weight. After 2 years figured it's time to start using them as either lawn boots or something to throw on my feet for those middle of the night volunteer fire department calls. All and all boots held up surprisingly well. Left toe is showing three small "scrapes" from my emergency brake pedal in the truck (NOT Danner's fault). Rubber upper sole where it joins the leather shoe body is starting to crack, roll and pull away. The mesh material is starting to develop holes on both boots at the widest part (down by the toes), both inner and outer parts of the foot. Mesh is also showing signs of breakdown at the rear flex point above the heel. Footbed and insoles are holding up nicely. Both zippers work like they did fresh out of the box. Paint around the eyelets is starting to ware. Soles still have some life in them. All and all am extremely pleased with these boots and pleasantly suprised with how long they've lasted, given the price. Have now had Acadias (3 pair), Scorch (1 pair) next up Stalwarts (Just ordered, changing jobs and need a stronger / waterproof boot).... Danner, if you want these boots to look at for potential improvement will be more than happy to return just send me an email. You guys put out a great product, keep it up.

I wear them 8 hours
I wear them 8 hours a day sometimes 16 hours in southern california. They are light and comfortable. I love that they have a side zipper. It’s easy to remove them after working 8 or 16 hours at a prison. I can run in them and respond to emergencies thanks to the light weight material it is made out of! Awesome job!

The shoe was not up
The shoe was not up to dinner standards the soul was not a Vibram so it was very flexible and did not give you a true feel of the ground. All other danner's I've ever had are amazing the best boots ever this one just doesn't fit in the lineup.

Good boots, breathe very well,
Good boots, breathe very well, not meant for use in wet weather obviously, this is 2nd pair. Small tear in both boots, both sides in mesh where my foot flexes while walking. Might be defect, might be design flaw. Either way Danner customer service was FANTASTIC !!!! Sent pre paid UPS label, shipped them back was fully refunded and reordered new pair at no cost to myself. My experience with just the customer service via email and over the phone was exceptional. J Hoffman

These are the third pair of Danners I’ve owned. Their quality and comfort are top notch. Best boots I’ve ever owned.

These are phenomenal quality, very comfortable, lightweight, breathable, and all around fantastic boots! I do think they run a half size or so big whereas it’s written they run true to size but it isn’t uncomfortable nor does it effect my work on the streets. Excellent boots, Danner. Well done!

I bought these for my son who was starting the sheriffs academy. These boots took a beating and lasted all six months and only one little cut in the mesh. The breathability was a big help. He had these and 511’s the danner boots were his preferred boot.
