Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Danner Men's Striker II EMS Uniform Boot (Apparel)
In all fairness, I have only worn these for one day. Hence this is a first impression only.
I have read other comments regarding "hard to break in". I've had some boots that were truly hard to break in, but these appeared to have broken in a bit throughout the first day. Only major complaint is a hearty rub on the inner left ankle bone. I do hope that it will break in over time though. These sort of look and feel like my old Bates Light's, but a little more flat footed and heavy. Wore these indoors for 9 hours with medium weight Smart Wool socks. These boot do NOT breath. I wish that they did not have the zipper, but I did not seem to find a comparable Danner boot with reinforced toe, no zipper and a more breathable style. In all, they appear to be a good boot. Perhaps just not the best boot for me at the moment…. Make sure to see the reviews on the Danner website as there are MANY complaints regarding zipper failures/quality.
