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.

I love my Vertigo's. With thick socks they are the most comfortable and light boots I have. These are probably not for serious hiking, but more casual style wear. I normally wear size 11.5 in sport shoes like running or sneakers, 11 in Red Wing boots and have normal width feet, usually wearing D. these are only available in EE, and I got mine on sale and there was only one size left, a 12. I was nervous they wouldn't fit because I've never worn 12EE, but when I got them with thick wool outdoors type sock they fit perfectly and, as I said, are extremely comfortable and feather light. If you like the vintage hiking look but don't want to wear clunky heavy boots for that effect, these are perfect. for serious backpacking and trekking I have both traditional leather and more modern hiking boots. I have the limited edition 1022x version with grey uppers and brick red vibram soles and they look fantastic.

Ordered two sizes. I am a solid 8.5 normally. Ordered 8 and 8.5. 8.5 was a tad too roomy and 8 was classic hugging Danner fit. I was nervous about size to keep but I don't wear crazy thick socks either. Wear smart wool socks and go down 1/2 size. If you wear thicker socks or are at the top of your size, order normal size. A lot of room by ankle and 8.5 had too much extra movement which I can see giving blisters and becoming too sloppy after wear. Trust Danner sizing; they are spot on.

These boots have several issues: 1. The leather is cheaply tanned, meaning that the dye do not go very deep into the leather. Consequently, when the boots are scuffed-- as will eventually happen at the top coating comes off revealing a lighter leather beneath and not very nice to look at. The scuffed leather sometimes has "flaps" with it too, another sign of cheap leather. One would expect $300 boots to have deeply tanned and thick leather. These boots do not. 2. The lowest inner shoe lace rivet digs into both big toes. I had these boots for a couple of years and the gouging is still an issue. I can no longer comfortably wear these boots. 3. The boots do not have a footbed. They come with small plastic "airthotics" but they do not do much. Positive points are: 1. The boots are classically stylish. You can wear them to the office on inclement weather days. 2. The boots have comfortable padded tongues.

This is a Made in America Company. These are incredibly durable boots. To break in the boots, it is a process (must bend the sole back and forth a few times).
