Kinetic Side-Zip 6" Black GTX

$180.00
|  Style 28017

It takes speed and strength to serve and protect. That's why we've added a convenient side zipper to our popular Danner Kinetic™. Built with a PU footbed, PU midsole and ballistic rip stop nylon, they're lightweight, fast and ready for anything.


 
 
 

Take our toughest full-grain leather and rip stop nylon, add a polyurethane footbed and a deeply cushioned midsole, and you’ve got the Danner Kinetic™. It’s tough on the outside, soft on the inside, and thanks to its lightweight build, it’s incredibly agile and responsive. The convenient side zipper for easy entry and exit is now an added bonus.

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.

        Great boot...but too hot

              Comments about Danner Kinetic GTX Side-Zip 6" Uniform Boots:

              I have a pair of Kinetics that I've had for quite some time. They do not have any Gore Tex or waterproof markings on them and I've poured a little water over the laces and my feet get wet. I'm wanting to replace those exact boots but it seems that Danner is going with all GTX boots and that's a shame. I don't need or want the waterproofing. The boots don't breathe nearly as well and that's a problem in Texas heat/humidity. I purchased these Kinetics with Gore-Tex and they are way too hot for my likings.

              HEY DANNER: Not everyone is interested in Gore-Tex. How about some 6" duty boots without it???

              Comments about Danner Kinetic GTX Side-Zip 6" Uniform Boots:

              This is my first pair of Danner Boots after wearing another brand for the last 16 years. These boots are really comfortable and took little time to break in. I read several comments about this style boot and the issues with the zipper becoming undone/unzipped during wear. I have also experienced this problem during my work day and hope Danner will address this issue. Other than the simple inconvenience of having to reach down and zip up the side it is a great boot.

                Comments about Danner Kinetic GTX Side-Zip 6" Uniform Boots:

                I use these boots for work so I'm on my feet 8-12 hours a day and they are the most comfortable yet that I have found. They are not to bulky either. I didn't even mind paying the price of $180.00. My only complaint is the zipper undoes itself, not sure how that happens. Overall, I love the boot and would buy again but I hope the figure out the issue with the zipper!!!!.....

                I just got the boots, I put them on and they seem pretty good so far. I am surprised the fit is spot on since they're foreign made. They're comfortable! The zippers need to be larger. I'll only give them a 4 star right now since I need to use them more to evaluate them. If they turn out to be the Danner Quality I expect, I'll make them a 5 star.

                      Comments about Danner Kinetic GTX Side-Zip 6" Uniform Boots:

                      I've been in LE for 20 years and have tried many boots. I tend to lean towards athletic styled boots. Previously I've worn the Oakley SI and UA Valsetz. When my UA's (quickly) wore out I tried on about 20 different styles but none felt right. Although the style and sidezip of the Kinetics didn't appeal to me much, I tried them on anyways. I am so glad I did. Immediately I knew they were the boot for me. The comfort and fit were perfect. I've been wearing these for over a year and a half and they are still in great shape and are easily the most comfortable boot I've ever worn. Very little wear on the sole.

                      The only con I can think of is that the rubber has peeled away from the leather near the toes. I highly recommend.
