Gavre 6" Olive

$180.00
|  Style 56301

Designed for use in mountain warfare, the Gavre is built with a fully rubberized outsole and integrated polypropylene board providing optimal stability underfoot in higher elevations, while still maintaining flexibility for lower-land operations.


 
 
 

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.

Boot Features
  • 100% breathable and waterproof GORE-TEX® lining
  • Durable nubuc leather and nylon upper
  • Abrasion resistant toe cap
  • Speed lace fastening system
  • Cushioning polyurethane footbed
  • Polyurethane midsole with integrated polypropylene board provides a perfect balance of stability and flexibility in high elevations
  • Danner Gavre outsole with pentagonal center lugs for optimal suface contact and heavier outer lugs for superior support when transitioning laterally and side hilling
  • 6" Height
  • 51 oz per pair

DLE-01 Last
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.

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.

        I would not buy this product again

        Pros

          Cons

            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.

              Great boots

              By By Force and Valor

              Pros

              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.

              Not what I expected

              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.

                I wear shoes from different manufacturers: Asolo, Haix, Meindl, Lowa, Salomon, Wellco M776. Danner Gavre my favorite. It has been on the march around 100km-great boots! Thank Danner!
