I can't believe nobody mentioned in the previous reviews that the fabric on these shoes is so weak that it tears right away. I got many cut threads on the ankle area after wearing them just once on a four-mile hike. I have never had fabric on my hiking shoes tear, ever, even after wearing them for years, much less around my ankle. This is an anomaly: I was sure that a hole would develop after wearing these shoes four, five times. I returned them for the defect as I would have returned to Danner itself if STP wouldn't accept it. This was my first Danner, and I would probably never buy Danner again.

I've been looking for some Danners this month, and almost dropped 300 bucks on some! But couldn't pass up this deal once I saw it on STP! I usually wear a 9 to 9.5. I buy 9.5 in ski boots and boots, and these fit perfectly right out of the box. Still haven't taken them on a hike but they were very comfortable.

These Danner Sobo boots are wonderful - I received my package early and the boots fit perfectly and very comfortable. We don't go on our hiking trip until next month, but I am sure they will work great! Sizing is pretty correct - I usually take a 7 1/2 in shoes and 8 in boots, and I purchased an 8 which was perfect with enough room for thicker socks.
