    I just got these and they are keepers. If interested in the Danner Striker Torrent GTX 8" and Magnum Stealth Force 6.0 Side Zip, read my reviews on those - I returned them. Based on some qualitative differences between this boot and the Danner Striker Torrent, I thought that I'd prefer the Striker Torrent, but not true. This boot is easy to put on, with our without the zipper, the YKK zipper is maligned by some reviewers are prone to breaking, but it travels easily and the gusset is generous. The laces are good quality, but longer than necessary. The selling point for these is all-day comfort. Amazing, feels supportive and yet so soft under heel. The boots move over hard surfaces easily without a rocker feel, like some boots with overly stiff soles. I expect these to feel hot because of the Goretex lining, but that's the trade off for waterproof. I will use these for backwoods use and for shooting sports.

    10/22/2013 Update:
    I've been wearing these daily for several weeks now and want to add a few comments:
    1. Boots are easily removed by only unzipping, but I am untying the laces to put them back on.
    2. Most comfortable boot I've ever worn - the high shaft feels very supportive on my leg and the insoles and soles are so comfortable.
    3. No trouble with the YKK zippers.
    4. Warm, but not uncomfortably hot, for all-day use at room temperature.

    Part of the boot is torn near the top between the zipper and eyelets. Very, very disappointed. Only had them for 2 months. If anyone from Danner sees this, feel free to get in touch with me to make this right.

    I will say first of all, this is a decent pair of boots, but they tend to have some problems somewhat more than i'd like to expect.

    I wear an 11/12 wide and its difficult sometimes to find a good fit- these ones did do the job,but I noticed some discrepancies. One of the main complaints on the AAFES website was that they don't shine well, this is true- they are a genuine work boot, and I have no problems with that.

    One of the things I noticed however - after fading from lack of polishing they appeared to be a green black. as a leather worker this tells me these boots were originally the sage green variant and they just redyed them to meet the black description. If the dye was properly set they wouldn't turn this green after fading.

    The other deficiency I noticed was that after awhile the inner lining worn down. I had to use moleskin to reinforce the areas where my heel had worn down in order to prevent painful chafing and blisters. Additionally, the rubber on the outside sole began cracking. All of this happened approx. right after six months after I purchased the boots.

    Despite the continuous polishing and lack of reinforcement, I'm giving this a decent rating because its still a decent pair of boots for the money. I'm a building manager and am constantly walking 1-4 miles a day in the area I'm employed. I can go through a 150 dollar pair of new balance shoes in less than 4 months- so these held up for at least a bit. I just wish these held up to some of the Gortex combat boots I was issued when I was still in the military.

    I have owned Danner Boots exclusively for 4 years now. I won't trust my feet to any other boot.

    I wear the non zipper version of this boot at work in a tree nursery, and most store bought boots are chewed up and destroyed in under a month. These last almost 2 years at a clip, and remain waterproof pretty much the entire time. For the physical kind of work I do, that is very impressive!

    Typically, I own two at any one time. One that I keep clean and polished etc that I wear out on the town/hiking camping etc. And one pair for work that I beat the crap out of. Typically, this works perfectly, because by the time my work boots wear out, my other pair is broken in enough to be super comfy, but just getting scuffed up enough to need a new pair anyway.

    I don't usually buy the zippered version, they last very well, but I find the non zippered version seems to hold up a little better over time.

    The waterproofing on these boots is incredible, and goes almost all the way to the top of the boot. That is, you can put your foot in about 6 inches deep of water, and while some dampness will seep in through the goretex, your feet will stay nice and dry and if any water does get in, the gore tex will help dry them out nice and fast.

    The soles are really good for most surfaces, and if you go hunting a lot, or just like to stay quiet on a nature walk, these boots soles aren't like hard rubber combat boots, they are softer (yet still very strong) and make little noise.

    The boots are ultra light weight, and feel more like a hightop sneaker, but are as rugged as much heavier old school military style boots. Meaning you can hike more miles before getting fired.

    Major complaint is there is no mechanism to lock the zipper. Normal movement sometimes lifts the zipper, allowing it to unzip. A simple Velcro strap would solve the problem. Minor complaint that the boots took longer than I expected to break in.
