Product Description

Danner didn't get their chops building athletic shoes. They make boots.

I work in the public
I work in the public safety field. I work 8-12 hour shifts 6 days a week. I’m posted in a large hospital. That means I walk and stand all shift long. No matter how long I stand or walk, my feet never tiered out. These shoes are the best pair of shoes I have ever bought for work. Definitely recommend these shoes to my fellow Officers. Also, these shoes are truly waterproof. It took me a week to break in these shoes. Great quality.

Light ans squeaky
I bought these boots some time ago and have loved them in my role as a law enforcement officer. I used these as a city police officer and a starte trooper, working on the freeway. I submerged the boots in running water to my ankles to test the Gore-Tex and I'm pleased to say they kept my feet nice and dry. The boots are super light, very comfortable, very easy to run in, and really easy to wear all day. More recently they've been great to stand in for hours while being yeld at by an angry mob. They also take a polish really well. I really can't complain about these boots at all except for one small thing they squeak.

The left boot started squeaking about six months after regular use and the right boot started squeaking a couple months after that. I suspect it has something to do with air getting in between the Rubber Sole and the midsole. I don't hear these boots squeak in the dirt, mainly just on hard surfaces such as concrete.

I would give these boots 5 stars right now if Danner could get that fixed. Im giving these three stars because squeaking can be a real safety issue.

Other than that, they're basically a water proof running shoe. They work real well in the summer where i usually see about 105 Fahrenheit. They do get a little warm in direct sunlight, but what can you expect from black boots. I love the boots, but they squeak, and that can mess with the element of surprise.

I love these boots. On my second pair now. I wore out the soles on my old pair but are still waterproof. The only complaint I have is the sole starts to squeak on the inside of the sole once they’re worn. I wear a wide boot so I get the wide or EE. I hope they continue these boots because I’ll continue to buy them.

I got these boots as a recommendation and at first I really enjoyed how light weight and comfortable they are. I work inside a jail and after my 12 hour shift my feet didn't hurt, nor were they sore. However after 6 months of wearing them the seams started to tear. It has now been 8 months and I have to get a new pair because the seams have ripped open and both have shoes have started to squeak. I have had many different brands before going with Danner and I do not plan to ever by another pair.

Dear Danners: I'm a prior
Dear Danners: I'm a prior Marine and had been using Danners for 10 years of military service. Even though the boot that I was using was the coyote usmc hot EGA, and not this specific law enforcement type but due to my new job as a security guard I thought I would give them a try. But when I got out from my job which is security guard for a hospital and to prevent from bringing them in my house where hospital germs may contaminate the inside. I decided it to leave them outside where I live in Southern California the boot shrink from the inside making it impossible to wear comfortable.

I love these boots. Even though they are men’s boots, they fit and feel great. They are waterproof and way lighter then my Acadia boots. I also have the non waterproof version. These are so light and comfortable I can wear them for my 12 hour shift with no issues and can run in them as well. I will definitely buy again.
