I considered all this and more before buying. I've had boots all the way from standard issue proppers with vibram hard soles to magnums, under armour, bates, Oakley, all with varying sizes between 6 and 8 inches with a few Solomon below the ankle shoe boots as place holders and civilian use.
But that's besides the point. Danner has always made great boots. That isn't a new opinion. I've always loved their products but I never liked the price. But after ripping through so many boots so quick I felt like I needed a change.
First off. These boots are tough, not like a steel toe work boot but in the way a good operations boot should be. They've lasted through marches, hikes (in treacherous Rocky Mountain terrain) climbing trees, rappelling, live fire, and running many miles as well as standing for hours on end. All of it and the boots have, for the most part kept their shape, excellent comfort, and most importantly, the waterproof gortex has never failed.
These boots are warm in 100+ degree heat. I won't lie. But not too the point of your feet literally cooking. They breathe exceptionally well for gortex. Which I've never experienced before. But as you probably know, heavy waterproof boots aren't a necessity in the desert. But with constantly changing terrain that can go from 100 to 30 in a couples of hours on a vertical climb having dry feet is a lifesaver. I've even used them for civilian work here in Colorado and they are my go to boots during all months of the year. I especially love them in the winter with a pair of wool socks. They work wonders in below freezing weather up to negative 20. Even when covered in snow.
When it comes to traction these boots excel. They have a remarkably tough yet soft outer sole, which grips better than anything I've used, even when wet or slippery.
I have never used Danner before these but it certainly won't be my last. If you're on the edge about boots then these will be them. They fulfilled every expectation I've had and then some. I got em for a hundred here on Amazon and that price can't be beat. get a pair while you can.
The answer to all of these is "Yes." Besides the fact that when I first opened up the box, these boots looked absolutely great, they are comfortable. The initial break in period took a few days but afterwards, the leather became supple and compliant. The toe box is roomy, which is needed when going up and down steep inclines. My toes don't bang against the front of the toe box nor do my feet feel like they're swimming. Also, these boots do fit true to size, which I was very pleased to find out. Some boots, like the Bellevilles, run a size too large and you had to factor that into the whole shoe buying experience, not with the Danner TFXs.
After the experience of Hurricane Irene (which was quite laughable in the region that I lived in), the Goretex lining held up and kept my feet nice and dry even though I walked through deep puddles and water rushing down the streets. Of course, because of the Goretex lining, these boots can be a bit toasty.
One thing I've noticed is that these boots don't really have the "speed lace system." Perhaps it was me abusing a brand new, not even broken in pair of boots, but the laces got a little frayed from rubbing against the eyeholes. I expected these laces to hold up better than that. In utilizing the ladder lacing system, I prevented these laces from rubbing against the eyeholes too much while keeping a nice, tight fit.
All in all though, I love these boots. They've held up pretty well in a strictly urban environment. They fit well, are comfortable, and greatly reduces feet fatigue, which, in the end, keeps me from getting fatigued after running around for 10+ hours.
By the way, they don't squeak on tiled surfaces the way some Vibram soles do. To me, this is a nice feature. No one likes the sound of boots squeaking. :)
On all other issues, these are the most favorite boots I have ever owned, and are a followup to other sets of lighter colored Desert TFX's I have lived in. These boots make it all possible and take me there. I took these Mojave's almost straight up 4000 feet of the nastiest snake-ridden, rock and boulder terrain on earth under the worst conditions, and they looked as good as when I opened the box when we were done.
They support and balance on such dry and slick rock terrain perfectly, but I have no feedback on softer terrain.
One gripe for me is Danner's failure to coat or finish some of the large upper-to-sole stitching, which is left vulnerable to damage or unraveling. Unless i am missing something, this could result in complete failure, and an opening between the sole and upper, but maybe there are super glues beneath this that I cannot see. This large stitching, and all stitching for that matter, could have some polymer coating over it for durability. At this price, we shouldn't be hunting for non-reflective Shoe Goo!
On the other hand, these aren't plastic toys like some of the other stuff out there. You won't kick yourself for spending the money on these boots. They are indeed worth the extra money in this case.
