It takes speed and strength to serve and protect. That's why we've added a convenient side zipper to our popular Danner Kinetic™. Built with a PU footbed, PU midsole and ballistic rip stop nylon, they're lightweight, fast and ready for anything.

 
 
 
 

Product Details

Overview

Take our toughest full-grain leather and rip stop nylon, add a polyurethane footbed and a deeply cushioned midsole, and you’ve got the Danner Kinetic™. It’s tough on the outside, soft on the inside, and thanks to its lightweight build, it’s incredibly agile and responsive. The convenient side zipper for easy entry and exit is now an added bonus.

How it Fits

The 1368 last is a sleek, streamlined last that is excellent for light trail, multi-sport and casual use. Provides a running shoe-like fit and ultimate comfort.

I have had these boots for about a month and there a great boot for the most part. Great fit, craftsmanship & weight. My only complaint is that the back of the nylon upper is not leather reinforced. Because of this it pushes down in the back and digs in just above my heal where the leather heal cup ends and where the nylon starts. I'm in the military I bought these for personal use to tryout the brand before buying duty boots. With the fit & craftsmanship I think I will buy a par for duty but will look for a pair with at least a strip of leather running up the back.

Cheap Zipper

By miles

Comments about Kinetic Side-Zip 8" Black GTX:

These boots were worn 5 to 7 days a week for just short of 9 months. The zipper is cheap and broke.

Best patrol boots

By Patrolman

from Kingston, NY

Comments about Kinetic Side-Zip 8" Black GTX:

I have had a pair of these for over 2 years as a Patrolman, best boots that I have ever had to date. They are high quality made boots, durable, well made and break in very nicely. Amazing in harsh conditions, and the fit is more like a sneaker than a boot. I've ran in these boots quite a few times and I was very impressed. Priced high, but you pay for what your get and you will not be disappointed. The laces, zipper and soles have never given me a problem.

Comments about Kinetic Side-Zip 8" Black GTX:

The back of the boot above the Achilles causes pain and is very uncomfortable. I would suggest more padding in that area. Would not buy these again for that reason. Zipper is also cheap.
