What does a warrior want in a boot? Everything. So we build the Desert TFX® GTX® to be breathable, cool, lightweight, waterproof, supportive, rugged, and a long list of other gutsy adjectives.


 
 
 

The Desert TFX® GTX® boot is lightweight and built for temperate sandy or dusty conditions. The GORETEX® lining provides breathable, waterproof protection; the TERRA FORCE®; X platform provides durable traction, heel-to-toe energy transfer and side support for maneuverability. A rough-out leather and 1000 Denier nylon upper enhance durability and the lightweight TFX® outsole delivers improved acceleration and traction.

Boot Details

  • 1000 Denier nylon upper material is extremely resistant to abrasions, tears, and scuffs, improves breathability, and dries quickly
  • TERRA FORCE® X platform provides lightweight, durable traction, heel-to-toe energy transfer, side support to enhance maneuverability, and protection from arch overwork and fatigue
  • Sleek, low volume profile with ample toe room provides serious support and comfort
  • Speed lace system for a quick, secure fit
  • Approach TFX® lightweight outsole provides improved acceleration, downhill braking, and side hill traction. Beveled lugs prevent debris build-up

850 Last
This boot is built on our most popular last, the 850. This last fits true to size with an athletic and supportive fit while providing ample room in the toe. This comfortable, supportive fit is ideal for those needing high mileage performance from their gear.

Tips for the Perfect Fit

  • Measure both feet. If one foot is slightly larger than the other, select a size that fits the larger of the two.
  • Consider the type of socks you’ll be wearing with your boot. For thicker socks, you may want to select a half size larger than you normally wear.
  • When you do receive your boots, we recommend first wearing them indoors for a few hours to ensure they’re the right fit.

Free Return Shipping
Rest assured that if the boot you receive doesn’t fit correctly, we pay for return shipping back to us. You can order with confidence knowing return shipping is always on us.

Comments about Danner Desert TFX GTX Mojave Military Boots:

I as a Recon Marine I used these throughout a 9 month training cycle/workup then 7 month deployment to Fallujah, Iraq. Upon return they were STILL able to go with me through Jump School, SERE school and another work up. I love these boots and they are the greatest I have ever bought. I have recommended them numerous times to fellow peers looking for a good pair of boots. They are very comfortable, lightweight, they look cool, and are VERY waterproof. I loved listening to other guys complain about their boots getting wet while walking through dew covered grass on patrol through the hills of Camp Pendelton, California. They actually helped keep up my morale on those long missions haha. When I had to walk through ankle deep puddles they stayed perfectly dry. They have been retired, however, I am considering them for recrafting and using them for Marine Corps Reserve Recon work. Thank you Danner for a reliable and affordable product fully worthy of your name!

    Comments about Danner Desert TFX GTX Mojave Military Boots:

    I primarly use these boots for hunting and other outdoor adventures. This year these boots proved to me how incredibly tough they are.

    I was out hunting Pheasant with friends this season. It was late in the day, maybe 1/2 an hour before sunset, and we were walking the last field in a line. Suddenly I heard a gun go off but had not seen a bird fly up. I looked to my left in the direction of the sound and see one of my friends, about 10 yards or so away from me, double over in horror as his gun had accidentally discharged in my direction. At that same time I start to feel my right leg get warm and see my pant leg and TFX/GTX boot turning from tan to red. I lift my pant leg and see blood gushing out of my right calf below the knee to the top cuff of my boot. Other members of my hunting party, who were former military medics, were on me immediately administering care. I took a ride to the ER where they told me I am now the proud owner of 22 pellets in my right leg. Yeah! The next day I was recovering and looking over my wounds. I noticed that I didn't have a single shot gun pellet wound on my right leg below where my 8" TFX/GTX Danner boot cuff was located. I found my bloody right boot and after inspecting it found at least 10 indentations and holes on the boot where the extra tough "Denier" outer construction had stopped the pellet or trapped it. I visited my Doctor the next day and showed him the boot. He told me that this boot saved me from major ankle and Achilles damage which could have crippled me for life.

    So there you have it, these boots are bullet proof. I will never wear any boots other than Danners for the rest of my life as they are the reason that I can still walk.

    Comments about Danner Desert TFX GTX Mojave Military Boots:

    Very comfortable boot, but the waterproofing is no good on these boots. I dont' think Gore-Tex is the problem, i just think the seams aren't the greatest and let in water. However it is a desert boot, and I use them in the desert, just don't expect them to keep your feet dry.

    Army Reservist and taking two pair which are brand new to the field for 21 days. Wish I had these boots while in Iraq. Worth every penny. I have recommended these boots to my troops especially if anyone has any foot problems. Nice that the break in period is almost non-existant.

      Comments about Danner Desert TFX GTX Mojave Military Boots:

      I have worn these boots during 8 weeks of training and the first 6 months of a twelve month deployment, and I have to say, they are OUTSTANDING! The Gore-Tex keeps your feet dry and clean from the disgusting filth of Afghanistan, but breathes enough to keep your feet healthy. I have worn these through snow and sewage and Afghanistan, and have been VERY pleased overall. I have also worn them during the heat of summer in Louisiana and recommend them without hesitation. The only recommendation I have is to add a pair of gel inserts to absorb some of the shock on your heels and knees when you are wearing body armor, and purchase an extra set of laces. Otherwise, they are good to go!
