Right out of the box they felt great and definitely less time to break it in! I love the way it fits my feet and the cushioning is definitely more substantial than my last danner boots! Overall I am very happy with the purchased and looking forward when the boots breaks even more!
I'm still trying to break them in. They are much stiffer than the last pair I bought several years ago. My other pair also had more cushion in the soles. I can only wear these for a hour or two every couple of days. They rub on my outer ankles. Time will tell if they break in comfortably. These are either a different style or version of the last pair I bought.
For the LE Community, I can only share my experience and opinion. These Danner boots are durable and comfortable and will support your feet for many hours of standing and walking. My previous pair lasted five years and are still going strong. I ordered the boots a half size larger and in EE width because I knew that Danner's have been running a bit small and narrow over the last few years and everything turned out great. Hope this helps. R/S and Semper Fi!
I really like the boots. I would give them five stars. The problem I have is the right boot will make a clicking sound as I walk midway through my eight hour shift. I think it might be a defect in the boot. Please let me know if I can switch them out. The constant clicking noise is really annoying and I can’t figure out how to fix it. It is like it is in the sole.
I have had numerous pairs of Danner boots in the past, but I have been wearing other brands as of late which led to severe foot pain. I decided to try out a pair of the Danner Striker Bolt in hopes of finding relief. I spent my first full work day wearing these boots. Felt a little tight initially. I took the boot string out of the speed lace eyelet and the boot became way more comfortable. My only complaint is that when I am walking, my left boot makes a squeaky popping sound. I am hoping that it is only due to the boot being new and not broken in.
Seriously, buy them. I’ve had them two weeks and I’ve never had such a good pair of boots. I’m a law enforcement officer in Florida, prior army infantry. I work a 12 hour schedule and I am constantly on my feet. For the last 3 years I wore the Danner Tacheyon (sorry for spelling). Those were good, but I was looking for something lighter, with more of a shoe/athletic feel. I got them in the mail pretty fast (standard shipping) and I ordered the inserts for them. There was no break in period, no hot spots, and completely waterproof. They grip very well, and to great in mud. But they are also light and comfortable. Out of the box the first thing I noticed was the craftsmanship on them. Each stitch seems purposeful and unique. They truely feel and look unique and well put together. I can’t wait to put a year on these bad boys and see how well they have held up. So far so good.
Really great boot. I was surprised at the break in process because it was zero. At no point did it feel like I was breaking them in. Also I love how the boot locks your heel in no slippage what so ever. I’ve been wearing boots for work for the past 28 years working 12 hours shifts & these are the best boots I’ve worn. They’re worth the 200 bucks.
So far the boot is wearing well and is comfortable. The traction is quite aggressive and I have not had any problems with slipping on fluid soaked tile floors. The third eyelet down that is set back further at the level of the ankle is bothersome at times when trying to tighten the laces, but overall has not proven to much of a problem yet.
A great boot. I've had these for about a month now with standard LEO patrol use. I ordered my regular shoe size and they fit just right and stay on without any need for adjustment all day (12 hour shift).
Can’t stop wearing them! Love them! Very comfortable and good looking. When they go on sale again, I will purchase another pair. Good quality. Love the waterproof, vibrom sole and they are light weight! Go Danner!!! Thanks!
I have crazy feet, nothing ever seems to work for me except Danner boots. I have worn Acadias for years however my assignment has changed and I do not need a patrol strength boot any longer. I bought a pair of these and they feel great. I wear a size 11 tennis shoe and the size 11 of this boot fit perfectly. These cannot be resold however they are constructed very well and the soles seem to be of high quality. I recommend this product.
So far I love them. If they last 8 months to a year I will buy another pair. I wear them 5 days a week for my job as a delivery driver for a farm store. I am on concrete and outside on our customers ranches and farms.
