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.

These boots are good all except for the sole. when the sole was brand new, it still slips and slides if pavement is wet. The sole wore flat within two months. Really dissatisfied with the quality of the sole.

Comments about Danner Instigator GTX Steel Toe Work Boots:

These boots are like putting on a slipper, comfortable from the moment you put them on. Excellent water repellant, I used these boots all day in 2 feet of snow and did not have cold or wet feet. Even the steel toe didn't make my toes cold.

They are however very slippery, I work on smooth concrete floors and walking through water I need to be very careful, also when transitioning to a vinyl or ceramic floors. You really have to be careful on slippery surfaces. Otherwise I love the boots.
