These are great boots. I wear them to work every day on a golf course. Over the years I have tried many different brands of boots including the much more expensive ones. Typically I was getting 6 months out of a pair; these have lasted over two years now and are every bit as comfortable as any boot I've worn in this class. Thanks Danner!

I usually wear a size 8 but I purchased a size 7.5 in these boots. They fit great! There's enough room for when I want to wear a thicker sock with them, but also fit very nicely with "normal" socks. Right now the leather is very stiff, but I can tell they're made exceptionally well. I can't wait to break them in and go on some hikes with my new Danners! Thank you, Zappos, for making my first Zappos buying experience a good one.

Love them. At first I thought I would like the size 8 as I am a size 8.5 solid and Danner sizing says size down 1/2 size. Well tried both and 8 fit like a glove but realized after walking a lot the toe area may be scrunched/cramped. These are hard toe hiking boots and they will not be stretching out in the toe area ever. I ended up keeping size 8.5 my normal size after walking around in them in the house and talking to representatives including a Danner customer service girl who takes her normal size in these as well. Order regular size these are hiking boots not ballet flats and you should be able to wiggle your toes are put a thicker sock on without pain.

Have no fear - these boots are amazing. I read every review I could find before purchasing them, fully aware that the heel of the boot may cause me problems. I ordered true to my current shoe size (8.5) despite the fact that I sometimes wear 9 in running shoes. I did this because the leather will stretch and now that I have broken them in, they fit like a glove. Also, please keep in mind that these boots are a tad narrow, but even with wide feet like mine, they fit okay (just more snug than I am used to, but not painful). As for the potential heel rubbing, you can avoid blisters by purchasing either leather conditioner or saddle soap to work into the leather on the boot heel. Also, wear two pairs of socks for about a week to break the heel in. This may seem like a bit of work, but it is totally worth it. The conditioner will also keep the boots clean and soft. Just be sure to follow the directions and be mindful the dye of the leather may be rubbed out if you do not do it properly. My best advice is to purchase these boots (despite any reservations) and wear them INSIDE ONLY with two pairs of socks until you have guaranteed that they fit and are broken in. Wearing them outside will prevent you from returning them for a difference size if they don t work. You can search online for proper boot fit guidance, such as this website (http://www.sheplers.com/custserv/custserv.jsp?pageName=BootFitGuide). I have worn these boots all around town and on two day hikes so far. I plan on wearing them during my backpacking trip to Iceland and am confident they will perform well for a long time.

I'm on my feet for majority of my work day carrying mail. I wanted something supportive, simple, and waterproof. We recently had about two inches of rain in my city, and my feet remained dry all day. I stepped through deep puddles and everything - dry feet. I've tried other boots that were 'waterproof', and ended up with wet feet, but these have held true- so far. They are pretty comfy and light. I thought I would need to break them in, but they were ready to go day one.

I always only wore Redwings until I tried these for budget reasons, I have definitely switched favorite to Danner for all possible reasons!

I got these boots because they looked awesome and I love the red laces, I got them and they are a little hard around the ankle but they will break in. The leather is amazing. I live in S. California and even though the weather is not cold and rough the boots are great and different. I already wore them in the rain and they did a great job.

Just like every other girl, I had to have these after seeing Wild. They remind me of the "Colorado" brand hiking boots I had back in the day. Danner really does need to reconsider how they cut the back ankle area of these boots, for that I knocked off a star. The back of the ankle is angled inward, making it cut into your achilles area. For some people, I can see how this will blister. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this area breaks in but I have a feeling it will always be a problem to some extent. Ordering a size larger is not the answer as the foot bed is plenty big for me. One solution might be that the put a padded area around the ankle covered in black like Timberlands? The laces could be designed to hold the tongue together around the front a little better as well. Aside from that, these are very sturdy boots that obviously will last me a long time. Great traction. Nice color. Very warm, it's nice that they are waterproof. They come off and on very easy, no struggling with getting them pulled off. I have been wearing them around the house and I can see how the heat of my feet is making them mold to my foot shape. I wear a size 7 and 'sometimes' get a 7.5, so I got these in a 7 and they fit perfectly. Nice space in the toes even with thick socks. I will be getting some moleskin like others have recommended for around the back of the ankle, but it's a bit ridiculous that I have to do that with a pair of hiking boots at this price. I'm not the only one complaining about this so come on Danner. If I didn't want these so bad due to wanting some different than every pair of dude looking Timberlands out there, I would send them back for the ankle issue.

Best boots. Ever! Bought these in my normal size 8.5 and they fit perfectly. Wore them for the first time (out of box to foot) on a 2 hour hike and had absolutely no pain. No break in time needed. I also have higher arches and have had numb toes in every other pair of hiking boots I've ever owned. Not with these! Great grip on slick rocks. Totally waterproof. Amazing! Buy these boots!

I really like these for light to moderate hiking. I usually wear a 9.5 M, so that's what I ordered. But they were too tight, so I returned them and got a 10 M. These fit well. Painless return process!. One more reason to do business with Zappos!

The boot is nicely constructed as Danners usually are, but I wear a 10.5 D in everything and this boot runs small about a half size. Order 1/2 size large for sure.

I have only had them for a couple of weeks, but they seem well constructed. They are comfortable, sturdy and breath well.

I am totally obsessed with these boots! They're gorgeous and comfy... Take a little while to wear in, but absolutely worth it. I'm usually a 7 or a 7.5 and I ended up taking a 6.5 in these - I found they ran really big. And I can wear the 6.5 with my Smartwools. Thanks, Zappos, for your fantastic return policy.

They boots are the best! I recently purchased them in size 9, my normal size, and they fit perfectly! I saw on the Danner website and on some reviews that it said to size down, but I would not do that! The 9 fit me perfectly. I will admit the first time I put them on I had some rubbing on my achilles, but I'm attributing that to the fact that I was wearing really thin socks. The next day when I put them on with thick/proper socks, I had no pain. They are beautifully made, a very pretty color, and made in the USA! They are a bit pricey but I expect to have these for many many years! Buy them!

Lighter and not as stiff as I was expecting. I walk on concrete and these are doing a good job absorbing the shock. Composite toe is approved to work in our MRI rooms. Good quality boot. Have recommended to coworkers.

I bought these for my son, for Christmas. They were perfect, but ran smaller and narrower than marked. I called and ask to return for a size larger (which comes a little wider also). The rep was so helpful and personal, even funny...but a real pro! I had the new ones in two days. Before I could even get time to drive the two miles to drop them off for return at UPS. This is the kind of service you desire, but rarely find now days. Almost makes me happy my son goes through shoes so quickly, just so I could deal with these guys again!

Ok, I'll be honest. I went to see the movie Wild and fell in love with these boots. I thought they were pricey and thought I'll order them, try them on and get my fix and send them back. I LOVE them!!! No way I'm sending them back. Felt great from the moment I put them on and they look great on. They don't look bulky. They look like a woman's boot. I'm so glad I bought them.

Very happy with this boot. Just got these today. Had them on for about 5 hours. After the first 15 minutes I could feel my left achilles starting to rub. Fortunately I had moleskin, put it on, and wore the boots around the rest of the day. In addition to wearing them in the house, I also walked outside about a mile. I would definitely say they run true to size, if not a little roomy length wise, which is how they are supposed to fit. Too many women are used to spending their days with their toes squished, and then when they can finally wiggle them a bit they think their shoes are too big. Ladies if you didn't have wiggle room and you hike up and especially down hills, you will lose your toenails! You are better off wearing a thicker pair of socks, as long as your heel isn't slipping. Beautifully made boot, I expect to have these for years.

These are great boots. They are exceptionally well made, comfortable, and reduce fatigue/pain in my feet and ankles because they support the lower leg area so well. I bought a pair of Danner's Vicious boots as a Christmas gift for my son and he's very satisfied, too. He no longer has knee and ankle discomfort after wearing his boots and he's on his feet 8-12 hours a day at work. He no longer has to wear a knee support sleeve.

Really great quality. Best fitting most comfortable boot I've worn. Took about two weeks to break in. Used to wear Red Wings, but they just never fit me quite right. These are perfect. I have a wide foot, ordered the 12 EE they fit me exactly perfect.
