Gavre 6" Olive

Product Details

Overview

More flexible than the typical alpine boot, this style was designed to provide the stability and support needed for rocky upper mountain warfare but still be versatile enough to smoothly transition from upper to lower elevations. Special attention was given to unique touches for mountain and transitional terrains such as a flexible lacing system that conforms to and moves with your foot, a unique construction that maintains its flexibility in the cold, and heavier perimeter outsole lugs for side-hilling movements, combined with pentagonal lugs in the middle for added traction on varying surfaces.

How it Fits

The DLE-01 last was designed to be an extension of the foot with superior forefoot and heel capture, stability and a more anatomical shape for comfort. The additional space in the toebox allows the foot to naturally react when bearing a heavy load or changing directions laterally in high intensity environments.

Great boots

Pros

  • GORETEX

Cons

  • Some Finish

Best Uses

  • Long Walks Heavy Loads

As an Army Sniper I have worn a few different boots, before these I had the Garmont T6's which I thought were the best. I've had these for about a year now and have been very impressed. I've carried 80lbs rucks for miles with them here in Alaska and Georgia and the soles are good and supportive. In the summer they do get a bit warm but for the trade off of having Goretex and keeping my feet dry I'm fine with that. I think the boots are very comfortable even with the stiffer sole for rough terrain. The wear is not very noticeable, some of the coloring is wearing off on the cushion part of the sole and there is a small cut in the front porting of the rubber sole. They sizing is the same as any other Danner, Altama, Bellville, Garmont.

I would not buy this product again

Pros

      Best Uses

        Not worth the money. About as comfortable as a boot half the price. Very hot on the feet even though it is uninsulated. Heavier than the competition. Not what I expected, lesson learned.

        Best Uses

          I bought these boots for tactical training and hiking/camping as well. I have owned several pairs of Danner boots over the years in the military and now in law enforcement. All of them have performed flawlessly and I always loved the way they break-in. I purchased these online and they look great and the Goretex works as expected but they are just too uncomfortable. First off, they are heavy boots, which might not be a problem unless you're walking long distances. The soles on these things are super stiff and don't bend or flex at all. On the pair that I got, the right boot was quite a bit tighter than the left, no matter how I laced it. After 8 months of wearing the boots, it's still the same problem. The length is true to size for me though (I wear a size 9D). I don't know if I'm going to be able to break-in these boots or they are gonna break my feet in! Time will tell! I wouldn't recommend these particular Danner boots.

          Great Boot

          By Jon

          from Norwood, NY

          Pros

          • Execellent Ankle Support
          • light
          • Wear very well

          Cons

          • no cons

          Best Uses

          • Everyday wear
          • Trecking In The Adirondac

          I wear these boots everyday all day. I had significant ankle pain and was told about these boots. I bought my first pair before a trip to Scotland. We did a lot of walking and hiking. The boots performed beyond expectations. My only fear is that Danner will stop making this model. I am on my second paid and bought a backup for this reason. Danner should keep this boot in the product line forever.
