Good boot, tight fit,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Danner Men's Descender 15404 Uniform Boot (Apparel)
I just purchased my second pair of these boots last week.
The first pair was the first time any type of footwear was tighter than the size would have you believe. Maybe during manufacture the size was cut prior to the insulation being fitted to the boot, or the Gor-Tex membrane so the fit will be tighter.
Easy solution was I ordered the wider size in the same size and problem solved. The boot even comes off and on much easier. I did re-lace it as I did the previous one to ease the fit but no deficiencies in the boots ability suffered by doing so.
No break in required.
Very quiet on most ground surfaces and excellent wet traction.
Sneaker like comfort with excellent shock absorption, as long as you do not have arch issues.
Best looking boot I have ever owned, which doesn't hurt.
If I had to ask for something to improve, it would be to use Kevlar in the heel and ankle region to prevent rips which occur from friction with socks, and more durable laces as the ones which come with the boot threatened to tear after 6 months.
