The enemy moves fast. These boots move faster. We built them light and we built them strong — perfect for pursuing combatants in hot, rugged climates.


Made for soldiers to pursue combatants over diverse terrain, the Desert TFX® has a rugged and aggressive outsole and Danner’s patented lightweight TERRA FORCE® X system, which provides stability and support. Designed for agility and breathability in hot, desert-like conditions, the Desert TFX® incorporates a Dri-Lex® liner, which mitigates hot weather with superior air and moisture exchange. Approved for optional wear for the U.S. Army per AR670-1.

  • TERRA FORCE™ X platform provides lightweight, durable traction, heel-to-toe energy transfer, side support to enhance maneuverability, and protection from arch overwork and fatigue

  • Approach TFX lightweight outsole provides improved acceleration, downhill braking, and side hill traction. Beveled lugs prevent debris build-up

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 Desert TFX Rough Out Hot Military Boots:

      Very disappointed that these boots were made in China, especially for the price. I had higher expectations from Danner. I am a member of the military and was in disbelief that these are approved for wear. Not satisfied, will be returning these boots immediately.

        Comments about Danner Desert TFX Rough Out Hot Military Boots:

        These boots saved me and my feet! I was initially issued a pair of boots by a brand I can't mention for ROTC. They were the most uncomfortable boots ever. The fit was too loose in the heel and too tight in the toes. After two weeks, the sock liner ripped. After a 6-mile ruck march, I had two of the worst blisters I've ever had in my life. That was it. Even though I had to use my own money, I went online and purchased a pair of these Danner TFX boots. When they came in the mail, I already had a great feeling. I was impressed with the quality of the packaging, the way the boots are individually wrapped, and the great smell of new leather. Danner pays attention to detail. When I put them on, I felt like I was putting on a running shoe. They support your ankles, your heels, and your feet. And yet, you still have plenty of room to wiggle your toes. The tongue is very thick and wide, which makes it perfect for tucking in your ACU trousers. They also look great with ACUs because most boots make you look peg legged, the Danner TFXs do not. The lacing system is precise and quick, with very high quality laces. The soles have heel cushioning, and when you walk the boots feel very responsive and springy - you could sprint in these things, that's how great they feel. The overall quality is superb. They look like they were handcrafted, like someone was making these boots for their best friend. As far as appearance, you can see for yourself. They mean business, the tread is aggressive and tactical - but the look is still clean and has a subtle way of being aggressive. Trust me when I say this will be the best investment you've ever made for your feet. I'm a first time Danner customer, and I will no longer look to any other company for boots. Great job Danner, I'm telling all of my fellow cadets about how great these boots are!

        Comments about Danner Desert TFX Rough Out Hot Military Boots:

        As a unit First Sergeant, the first day I wore these boots, I began the morning by pacing one of my Soldiers on a Physical Fitness Test (running 2 miles). Surprisingly, I had absolutely no blisters or even hotspots. Throughout the first day and even now, 3+ years later, I have been amazed at the simple wearability of these boots. We, the boots and I, became almost inseperable. As a mototcycle rider, a certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) instructor and a motorcycle accident victim, I can personally vouch for their durability while sliding on asphalt from 55 mph. Without good sturdy boots, I would have lost half of my foot. I use the damaged boots as a training aid in my safety classes. Of course, I immediately went bought another pair. At this time, I am ordering another pair and will return the current pair for resole when I receive them. From walking on asphalt and concrete for the MSF courses to the current environment in Afghanistan, the boots have been tested in every way possible and have excelled in performance. In my opinion, there is no better boot available that crosses the wet/dry, cold/hot spectrum as well as the TFX. Congratulations on a well made product.

        The boots are light and comfortable. I have worn them in negative temps and in the deserts of AZ working. They have a huge flaw, the cheap chinese sole just wears rapidly. Stick to danners US made boots they are more durable.

          Comments about Danner Desert TFX Rough Out Hot Military Boots:

          I have no idea why anyone would deploy without them. In 130 heat it felt like I was wearing tennis shoes and now that it's the rainy season in Iraq, my feet have stayed completely dry even after having to wade through massive puddles of all sorts of substances. There is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't buy a pair of these right now!
