Product Description

Danner didn't get their chops building athletic shoes. They make boots. So when they decided to create a lightweight trainer, they took Danner's 80-plus years of experience and created a boot that acts like a shoe, not a shoe that acts like a boot. Recommend women select 1.5 to 2 full sizes down for correct fit.

I loved the previous model
I loved the previous model but these aren’t quite the same. Toe box is bigger and not as comfortable. Believe me I want to love them, why I got a second pair. Don’t get these for anything you need support for not what they are made for. Very light love the look of them and last pair very comfy. But for whatever reason just not as good. My apologies Danner.

The "liner" in the toe
The "liner" in the toe (top and sides) in the unlined boots seems to have too much material. When I first put my foot in the boots, especially the right boot, that extra material becomes a wrinkle that now sits on top of my right foot at about the area where the toes are connected to the foot. This is uncomfortable at best and I have to wiggle my foot as much as possible and slide it around slightly (there is not much "extra" room in my boots) while the boots are still untied and loose, to try to get that wrinkle smoothed out. It is generally alright after that. I need them for work, but I do not do much walking at work; just lots of standing. As such, I cannot comment on how comfortable they'd be on a long hike, but they are comfortable to stand it and to walk short distances. They are very, very lightweight - a characteristic which I do enjoy greatly.

Absolutely amazing! Lightest boot I’ve ever owned. Thinking about buying another pair just so I have them. I’m on my feet 9+ hours a days, and love these boots

I'm delighted. They're just what I wanted. They're very light and immediately comfortable. They didn't need any break-in period. I guess they can't break in, since the materials are all synthetic. It's quick and easy to tighten the upper laces with a single pull at the top. The insoles slip out easily. (I replaced mine with Superfeet.) The outsoles have good traction. The lower inch or so is waterproof. I can step in puddles an inch deep with no water getting in. On the other hand, sweat doesn't get out, so the bottom of my foot stays damp with sweat. The top of the foot and the ankle are flexible synthetic fabric, with not much ankle support. The fabric lets sweat air out but also lets water in immediately. When they get flooded, the water drains out through two screened eyelets at the instep. As I walk, each step pushes out a squirt of water through the eyelets. If I go walking in deep water, I plan to bring spare socks and swap wet for dry. All of the materials are non-porous, so the boots can be dried out pretty fast.

Mine were somewhat smaller than the stated size. I take a size 13 (euro 48) athletic shoe, but a size 14 (euro 49) medium width Tachyon.
