I'm an EMT so I'm fairly active during my 12 hour shifts. I've had these boots for over a year now and they are still amazingly comfortable. Very little in the wear and tear department: nothing a little show polish doesn't fix.

When I first got them I was concerned that they were a little too snug to be worn with thicker socks (cold winters and all), but after they were fully broken in, that was no longer an issue. If I ever need to buy a new pair of boots again, these will be the first thing I look at.

I was given these boots as Christmas gift. Loved them at first, since I was exposed to Danners as young Marine in the 90's. However, not the same. I wear my boots casually to & from work as to where I change over into dress shoes. I noticed that the boot is starting to separate from the sole, perhaps compromising the ability to be waterproof. I don't think I will ever buy a pair of Danners again based on the expensive price & poor quality that is being sold.

comfortable yet not a homerun

Comments about Striker Torrent Side-Zip 8" Black:

"This definitely is a very comfortable boot. However the only downfall would be the the speed lace loops. I love the spped loops concept but the first loop pushes down on my ankle and hurts quite a bit. After breaking them in a bit, the pain has subsided some. I will see how they feel in the next two weeks or so."

Poor Quality

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Poor quality

Best Uses

  • Station boots

Comments about Striker Torrent Side-Zip 8" Black:

I wear these boots as staion boots and for driving. I wore them for less than 6 shifts. At first I was very pleased with these boots. But after just a few uses the stitching that holds on the side-zip zipper came undone and the zipper seperated from the side of the boot. This is the third time I have had an issue with a Danner zipper product. The first two times were with the lace in zipper kits for my Acadias, third time was the charm...so far.

      Comments about Striker Torrent Side-Zip 8" Black:

      The finest quality and lightweight boots I have ever purchased. The overall quality and comfort exceed that of any duty boots I have ever purchased...and I have bought them all in the search of quality and comfort.

      I will purchase only Danner's for the remainder of my Law Enforcement Career!
