Danner has made a great walking and daily wear shoe. It’s not really a tennis shoe and is not a hiking boot. It’s the perfect combination of both. This shoe is comfortable no matter when or where I wear them. These look good and I get compliments frequently. I highly recommend these shoes.
I love comfortable shoes and I am always shopping for that perfect shoe. After recently purchasing KURU, UGGS, and my new Caprie Danners. Danner wins again. Not to take away anything from the others they were comfortable, but my overall likes are with Danner for style, comfort, and quality. Why do I bother wearing anything else when Danner has been my go too for over 30 years?
This shoe is exceptional and has so much potential, “BUT” it’s “not” there just yet. Very nice looking, well made, casual, recreational and versatile, lending itself to many different uses. That said, it is not true to size, it’s clumsy and a 10.5 M feels more like an 11 EE. Further, the shoe does not snug up on the foot bc it fits large, and inside the heel there is no concave heel cup, to keep the back of your foot in place and eliminate internal slippage of the heel wanting to rise up, feeling like your foot is going to slip right out. The Caprine will be a really nice option at some point, but it definitely needs further tweaking until such time as “its arrived”!!! Would definitely re-purchase this shoe if the required improvements were implemented, for the time being I’m going without a Caprine in my lineup whatsoever.....
Great look, fit, style, and super comfortable. Until you walk in them. A large gap around the heel makes it rub every step. Lacing extra loose or tight did not help. Not a shoe I want to trek around in. I tried for a couple weeks thinking I would get used to them or they would break in. No luck.
Ordered the “correct size” but it fit a half size larger despite using the Danner’s find your fit quiz. The color wasn’t as bright as the photo showed. The feel for it despite being bigger than intended was pretty solid.
The lower is extremely stiff, and yet no upper support. Not the comfort I'm used to with Danner, but comfortable enough, and I love the look so I'm keeping them. My first non 5 star experience with Danners.
Nice quality overall but at least a half size too big and it ran wide. I bought a caprine mid at the same time and the size was perfect. Not sure why the big difference. I returned this shoe immediately after trying them on as I knew the size was not going to work.
