With 2,650 miles, the Pacific Crest Trail provides a wide variety of terrain over its epic expanse. Whether you're out for the weekend, a few miles or are looking to get some serious mileage, the PCT has something for you. It's that need for versatility that inspired our Trail 2650. Built to move quickly and confidently through the terrain of your choosing, the Trail 2650 can easily fill the role of a lightweight hiker or trainer. Using a Trailguard TPU shank and an EXO Heel System, the Trail 2650 is both lightweight and provides stability on challenging grounds.
I own many pairs of danner footwear. The 2650 is a well made shoe, but not one of Danner's better feeling hiking boots. The toe box puts pressure on the ball of the big toe. Lite is always great, but they're too sneaker-like feeling. They're more suited for lawn walking, like Utility companies Meter Reading, than trail walking. Have had no problems with construction or waterproofing. Built well as always. Truly a trail footwear literally, not a hiking boot or shoe in any way.
The most comfortable and light boots I have ever worn. They are a size 14 and I don’t even notice that I have them on. They are so comfortable I forget to take them off. I have owned boots from every major brand and they do not hold up. I will never buy another boot. Danner for life.
When I first bought these boots I was skeptical being a first time buyer, but I have been pleasantly surprised buy the quality of these boots. They were comfortable from the first time I put them on. There was almost no break-in period. I have worn them both hiking and walking around town and I must say I love these boots. I would highly recommend these to anyone and will definitely be buying more shoes from Danner. They aren’t cheap, but definitely worth the money.
I am a novice hiker but love to explore. I purchased the Trail 2650 Mid 4" GTX hiking boot because they were waterproof. I put them on right out of the box. They broke in very quickly , loved the weight, had great traction, and most importantly kept my feet dry. Explored all kind of terrain in the Red River Gorge area in sunshine and the rain. They did very well on the wet stones and uneven surfaces. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
I purchased the Trail 2650 Mid 4" GTX hiking shoes. These shoes have the best traction I've ever experienced as I have used them in dry, wet/muddy, and snow covered/ice conditions of the Appalachian Mountains. There has been a compromise in materials to make these shoes light and the cost is durability and longevity of the product - I've worn them 4 times and they're already coming undone with signs of more to come. I've put them to the test and they sure do perform! My wish for these shoes would be for Danner to offer these shoes in a fully leather version with the same Gore-Tex lining, foot bed construction, midsole construction, and absolutely amazing Vibram outsole. I'd spend the extra money and buy them in a second!!
Bought these boots for a family trip to Park City, Utah..from Florida. Have walked about 15 miles in 3 days, snow, slush, ice, etc. Feet have stayed dry, fit (13E) was perfect out of the box. Super comfortable.
