    I bought these for my son, he wears them up at the summer camp he works for and when he came home they looked as good as when he left. Held up well to hiking, boating, as well as the trips to the paintball zone. Would recommend them! The only thing that we had to replace was the shoestrings you might want to by an extra pair and keep it on hand as I had a hard time finding a replacement pair that a store had in stock.

    I have had these boots for about a year now and used them for work (construction) and for outdoors ( rocky desert environment). They are super comfy and lightweight. they are not as cool as I would have liked but no big deal. they fit true to size. I got a wide because of all the reviews that said they ran small and that proved to be a mistake. they fit nice at first but after they were broken in I had to lace them up so tight that the two sides with the lace eyelets almost meet. the problem would be none existent had I ordered my regular size and width. The sole is starting to seperate from the shoe and I washed them for the first time recently and the insole (not the cushion insert) crumbled and pieces fell out so I had to rip out the rest. I payed $88 for them and I gues they are worth it. Lasted a.year in construction. Wouldnt pay much more than that though

    Best pair of tennis shoes I have ever bought! The floppiness and noise of the uppers, on my skinny little shins, I thought would be a negative issue. Then I needed to chase down my dog...SUPRISE! I FOUND I COULD FLAT OUT RUN THESE THINGS.

    Poor Vibram sole. These soles will NOT stop a mesquite thorn from piercing them. I live in southern AZ and frequently have to step on mesquite branches. These soles are too porous. Furthermore, they are not strong enough to wear when using a shovel. I made that painful discovery. The only fix for these poor quality soles is to use thin metal inserts. I bought them here on Amazon and must wear them all the time in these Danner boots. This is just another example of the decline of a once well built product.

    This boot was a little bit too big but I still wear it. It is hard to size myself into shoes or boots online. I am one of those people that need to try them on in the store, but these boots are a great quality and really light weight.

    I've had these boots for almost 2 months and for the price they have been great. I just competed in the Pawnee Run-N-Gun yesterday in them, 10k of hills and mud and they performed great. Hope they hold up over time.

    I bought my Melees direct from Danner's closeout page. They're supposed to be seconds, but they look perfect to me. It did take me two tries to get a decent fit. The 11.5 EE was perfect for length, but too narrow. The 12 EE is perfect for width and a bit long, but overall a good fit. I notice that a lot of buyers say these run short.

    They're extremely light- only 45 ounces (2 lbs 13 ounces) for the pair, which works out to 1 lb 6-1/2 ounces each- and surprisingly comfortable. They don't require any breaking in, either; just lace them up and head out. I bought them for warm weather hiking and hunting when wearing long pants, and I think they'll be excellent for that use. If you get a pair, I would suggest wearing thin wool socks or polypro socks to insure that perspiration moves through the boot instead of staying in your socks.

    Danner also make a Gore-Tex (GTX) version of these boots, and if you plan on encountering rain or marshy conditions I've definitely go with those instead. But for dry, weather in very hot to mild conditions these the most comfortable boots I've yet found.

    They are very light, very comfortable while still being securely fit to the foot. I have wide feet and this boot fits properly for the indicated size, which is rare for me. The breathability makes this boot ideal for the summer. In my opinion this boot is the ideal general purpose footwear.
