These boots appear to be well constructetd, heavy-duty boots -- exactly what I've been looking for. Hopefully they perform as well as they look. Sole material is not as grippy in snow as previous pairs of boots I've owned. The only reason I give the product four stars is because I need to see how it performs over time.

I was glad to see a sturdy boot offered in a wide size, since my feet have widened as I have aged. Unfortunately, these are too narrow to wear comfortably and break in. unfortunately, I had already disposed of the packing materials so I could no longer return them. maybe with time they will improve.

The Combat Hikers were purchased to replace my beloved but worn out pair of Danner Explorers, which went through one resoling and countless treks. I tried two other lighter boots, but was unsatisfied with the fit and feel on rough terrain. Might as well wear cross trainers, I thought. So it was a great surprise to find these Combat Hikers on STP, and I immediately saw the great value in them. For the price, it's impossible to find all the same features in a boot.
The boots are on the heavy side, but are still comfortable and have a solid, sure-footed feel to them on rocky terrain. The soles seem to be made out of a harder rubber than other Vibram soles. Time will tell how durable they are. As others have pointed out, the boots do not come with a quick lacing system. The top has regular eyelets, but that hasn't been too much of a hassle so far. I can live with it.
One negative: the boots will be hot for summer hikes.
One important point I would pass along. I ordered a 1/2 size up and don't regret it, even though my previous Danners were actual size (11 Medium). I recommend you do the same.
So, if you've read this far, then you really need to buy these boots. You won't find a better deal.

“Is size D for a narrow foot and EE for a wider foot?”
Asked on 4/15/2012 12:00:00 AM by Anonymous from Sheridan, WY
'D' is usually a medium width while the 'EE' is for a wide foot. A 'B' or 'C' width boot, if you could find it, would be a narrow width. I have narrow feet and it is a challenge to find a narrow width boot. Sometimes a thicker insole will take up enough interior space to help.|The Danner website will have information on what last the boot was built. (Look under 'Size & Fit') Some lasts are better for folks with narrow feet. Good luck with your search!

“Which size would be equivalent to a women's size 7.5?”
Asked on 2/5/2012 12:00:00 AM by Anonymous from Unknown
If you hover over the sizes available a tap will appear and provide you with the correct numeric sizing. I hope this helps. I believe a 6.5 (M Size 6Â½, F 7Â½) would work out great for you.

I would not recommend using the Danner Combat Hiker Gore-TexÂ® Military Boot as a wading boot. That does not mean you cant, but using it as a wading but is not what it was intended for.

“I am a longtime frequent customer.||I just purchased these boots. They look well made as the Danner Brand is known for. ||I do not see anything indicating that they are Gore-tex as advertised. There are no Gore-Tex labels on the box or on the boots.||I need to know if I should waterproof or not.||Are they really Gore-Tex? Doesn't Danner put GTX on their label and the Gore-tex logo on the boots?”

The Danner Combat Hiker Gore-TexÂ® Military Boots does have the Gore-TexÂ® waterproof breathable membrane in it. I am unsure why there is not Gore-Tex advertising on the boot's. The only thing I can think of is that Danner worked something out with Gore-Tex to keep their boots advertisement free.

They are waterproof, but not from goretex. The build of the boot is single piece leather with quality stitching. You will need to treat the leather over the years to keep it supple. This should maintain waterproofness. I wore these boots into the Glastenbury Wilderness of Vermont (an overgrown area of beaverdams, bogs, and swamps) and my feet stayed dry.
