Product Details

Overview

Made in the USA and U.S.M.C. certified, the Danner Marine is built to serve. Constructed with rough-out full-grain leather for toughness, and a Vibram® Sierra outsole for comfort. Lined in waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® for comfort and protection from the elements. The boots lace to the toe for better fit and support, and Danner’s famous stitchdown construction gives a more stable platform and superior durability.

How it Fits

The 610 is our most universal last and can be worn by all foot shapes and sizes. It provides a snug fit through the heel while allowing ample toe room for most versatile fit. This allows more support and side-to-side movement.

Use:

I've used these to hike through steep and muddy terrain near the borders of Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda. I stepped in a muddy creek bottom to about 2" below the top of the boot, and my feet stayed dry. Be careful - the gussets in the tongue go down to the 2nd eyelet, so I was cutting it pretty close.

Footing in mud was secure, and even in clay-like soil, I didn't have a suction problem (the slightly curved sole seemed to help a lot with that - if you stand these up on a hard floor and rock them side-to-side you'll see what I mean). Mud came out of the tread almost instantly, but stuck to the upper like glue.

Maintenance:

A week before using them, I applied some beeswax-based sealant (no mink oil, softeners, petroleum products, or solvents) to them to try to keep the nap down and make the mud easier to wash off later. No luck: It took 20+ minutes of scrubbing to get the mud out of the leather (I've been told it's bad to let the mud sit in the leather) - it never really came out of the Cordura, and I doubt it ever will. On the bright side, water beaded up and rolled off the non-muddy parts of the boots.

Fit:

My feet measure exactly 9 EE, so I ordered that size. I was surprised to find my toes a bit crowded - not painful, just snug. Because of steep terrain, I was advised to get a slightly snug fit, which these are, and they will stretch over time, so it's not such a big deal. I think they will form to my feet over time and eventually could be the most comfortable footwear I own.

Workmanship:

Excellent everywhere except where the leather joins the sole between the heel and instep on the outer arch side of the boots. On both L and R boots, the leather in those areas was separated from the top of the sole since the day I got them (still stitched securely in place though, and still seem to be 100% waterproof). The upper seems glued down everywhere else, so it looks like someone got lazy with their gluing or its a design flaw (i.e., the glue can't stand up to beeswax). Either way, I can't easily ship the boots 8000 miles back for repair/replacement (family brought them over on a visit), so I'll just live with it: They work for now, but time will tell if they last....

I had very high hopes for this boot and was quite willing to pay the [$].[...]the moment I put them on it was a bum fit...too narrow, too short, with a lump on the interior sole under my right big toe. They were marked as 10.5 4E width but weren't even close.Had to drive 25 miles to return them to Danner(no charge to me). Boots looked very good on the brochure, but didn't come close to fitting. Too bad for me.

    Comments about Danner Marine 8" Mojave GTX:

    I purchased my current pair of boots 2 years ago and will never buy anything but Danner ever again. Saying that I spend a lot of time on my feet would be a gross understatement. Prior to my experience with Danner, I really didn't like boots at all (I was more of a tennis shoe kinda guy), but now I wear my boots all the time. Be it a 10 mile pack run or a 40 mile Colorado Rockies week, my boots have never let me down.

    That said, all boots have a break in. These were no exception. However, any boot I've ever used with no break in had no staying power either and I went through a pair of boots every couple of months. I most definitely recommend anyone looking for a solid boot at least try out Danners, you won't regret it.

    No complaints about this product.I love wearing boots. However I would order several more of your products if you had my width (4E) on more products. I am sure I am not the only person in America who has wide feet. So please consider producing 4E widhts on more models.

        I have wide feet and have a difficult time finding shoes and boots to fit. It took a few tries, but we finally got the right boots. I never had a problem returning the boots that did not fit. The customer service is Great! They did require some break-in time, but nothing out of the ordinary. I would buy from Danner again!
