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 USMC RAT Hot Steel Toe Military Boots:

    I was an 8404/0000 HM with the USMC Infantry for 6 years (Semper Fi Weapons 1/2!!!!). I exclusively wore Danners. I'm now a Remote Site Medic in Liberia, Africa at an open pit iron ore mine. I wanted to carry on the tradition of wearing Danners.

    I have a few friends that are still in and they all, to a man, recommended these boots to me. Let me tell you, the price tag is WORTH it!

    First, the boots fit perfectly out of the box. ZERO break in period. I spend 8 - 10 hours a day in these boots alternating between sitting at a desk and hiking the mine on 5 - 30 degree inclines. Nary a blister to be found, regardless of the socks I happen to be wearing.

    My feet are never EVER uncomfortably hot or sweaty. Ever. Granted, I'm in Africa, not Afghanistan, but temps get up to 100 here and it is HUMID as hell. But my feet stay comfy.

    I have read some complaints about the soles. While I'm not humping 40k a day in these, I am traversing some pretty steep inclines in all types of soil. From deep mud to loose sand. These soles have amazing traction and I have found that they do NOT collect mud in the grooves.

    I do have one smallish complaint. The leather itself is water resistant (IDK abt waterproof...) but the vent holes in the instep eliminate this. Not too big a deal, but I do get a lot of rain here. The boots don't get soaking wet inside, and they dry relatively quickly.

    All in all, I love these boots and will continue to stand by Danner. I'm buying a pair of the RAT Temperate Boots for back home in Colorado. Semper Fi, and thanks to all who continue to Stand The Watch.

    Comments about Danner USMC RAT Hot Steel Toe Military Boots:

    I order these boots to replace the standard Hot weather USMC boots that I have worn for over 5 years. You can't beat the quality of a Danner boot except when Danner themselves makes better one. These boots have almost no break in time and are ready to go out of the box.
    I also have a pair of the RAT temperate boots and they are the same only better in cold weather and very wet terrain. These boots are becoming the standard issued boots for the United States Marine Corps and I can tell you first hand, they are the best boots I've worn in combat. You can not go wrong with a pair of Danners. One of the best piece of gear you need is on your feet and the RATs are the best boot for the job.

    Comments about Danner USMC RAT Hot Steel Toe Military Boots:

    The day these boots came in the mail I went for a four mile hike...no blisters. Beautiful. there was no break in time and they were very comfortable right out of the box. The insoles from Danner did seem to give up the ghost a little on the quick side but the boots were still good to go. I wear these to work as a general contractor in the northeast. So far they have seen every season and performed well. I'm glad I got the hot weather version,I just wear wool socks in the winter. They do tend to run a little big. I usually wear a 10.5 and i'm wearing a 9.5 and could maybe go to a 9. I did have one issue with the heel cup breaking and the leather tearing just above the sole at the heel. But when I called Danner they replaced the boots no questions asked.That is huge. An American company that stands behind their products!! They just earned another loyal customer! Thank you Danner!

    Pros

    • Breathablity

    Best Uses

    • Hot weather

    Comments about Danner USMC RAT Hot Steel Toe Military Boots:

    Mine came with laces. When used with Smart Wool socks my feet stay dryer than in tennis shoes with cotton socks. I haven't had athletes foot since I got these boot, but part of that could be the smart wool socks. I used to work in a norther state, but now I work in the middle of a desert. I needed a steel toe and hot weather boot, these work great.

    My left heal almost blistered when I was breaking them in. Now my heel has a callous were the heel cup rubs on my left foot. The right heel in OK. I have been wearing boots for 30 years and have only have two pair that took longer to break in. Not nearly as comfortable as the timberline pro for standing and working 12 hours a day on concert, but my feet stay much dryer.
