Long before it reaches the snowy mountain passes of the Northwest, the Pacific Crest Trail begins in the Southern California desert. Inspired by the hot, dusty stretches of the PCT, the Trail 2650 Campo was designed for warm-weather hiking. It's built with a lightweight and breathable upper so it's as comfortable as your favorite pair of running shoes. Vibram Megagrip technology helps to keep your footing secure as you scramble over rocky terrain. It's dust-gaiter compatible so you can move confidently through sand and sagebrush.
Boots were more than what I expected. Many reviews spoke about a rough break-in period, not the case. Mine were true to size (9.5) and fit well (I wear a 9.5 Nike, 9 Ariat, 10 cap-toe dress shoe).
The leather is soft, making these boots pretty comfortable out of the box. I've worn them 7-8 times and really like the look and feel. Only downside is that they're a bit more red than expecting. However, they're starting to wear well and I believe the red will fade. I bought them for work between field and office and they're a great all around dressier boot, worth the money.
Suggestion -- get a good spray on water repellent and these will hold up well!
This boot was a little stiff at the start but soon conformed to my foot. Now they fit like a glove and are comfortable. They look nice when dressing up but also perform well in my high dessert climate.
I ordered a pair of Danner JackIII’s only to find that I had received a cheaper version of boots than what was being advertised on their website. The boots I received didn’t even have the same number of eyelets as the picture on the website. Danner needs to update their website pictures because this is false advertisement.
Ok boot. Runs narrow but very wide in ankle. Comfortable with thin socks and working on stretching them out. Based on experience with other Danner “dress” boots, the leather is going to take some effort to look good. Sort of in a class by itself, not much else in its price class. Decent value if you get them on sale.
Returned. I still own a pair of Danner Go Devil boots from my days in the Army, but am disappointed with this boot. As previous reviews stated, the pattern for the boot must have been made for people with cankles. The mahogany color in the picture is not the mahogany I received. The color had almost a pink shade to it.
These boots look good, but they are not up to Danner's standards. The leather is far from "premium" and it is thin. I suspect it will break down quickly. These boots are lined with an awful feeling fabric lining that just feels cheap. Completely agree with the comments about how the ankles fit, and the tongue. This is the first Danner product that I have purchased that were not Made in USA. They need a better supply chain. ** Please Danner, don't follow Filson's lead!**
This boot was for someone with extra large ankles and swollen feet. The tongue is in attached so low that feet would get wet in a light rain or a puddle splash. The top of the boot was made so large that the eyelets touched each other and with room to spare around my ankle. Bad boots for Dinner. I use to be a land surveyor and Oly wore danner lights but now I don't trust danner's quality as much.
The *only* reason these sweeet stompers aren’t a full five stars is that the first time you put them on it feels like your feet are being bound. (especially if you have wide feet like myself) However! - now that I’ve put a few miles on them and applied oil a few times, they’re working in like my childhood baseball mit; and I can tell this is going to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Thanks, Danner. 👊
