Arg, I really wish I could just go to a store and try these on before I drop $300+. If I find a store that sells Danner, well, they only sell one model. I went to a shoe store, got their fancy measuring tool and measured my feet (9.5 EE) After waiting and waiting for my boots to arrive they finally got here, and they're too big. So after I send them back and order a new pair and wait and wait. Ill finally have some boots for work. Total time ~ 3wks. Hoping of course I need a 9 EE and not a 9 D (4wks). At least when they get sorted they'll be awesome, no doubts about that. Its just hard to believe that living in the country's third largest city I cant just drive to a store, try my boots on, and take them home. Portland is awesome, I know, but its time to get a Danner store in Houston. Your retail partners aren't doing you any favors. Your product range and customer service is getting lost in their dimwitted clumsy fingers. And the internet is just frustrating for something this size dependent and expensive. 3 more wks of bad boots :-(

I purchased 2 pairs of Danner black uniform Rivot boots (11EE), direct from Danner, via their father's day special. The package arrived without any incident; no issues on shipping. I was hoping that the Rivots essentially be black leather versions of my Pronghorn and Desert TFX boots (both 11EE), which I think are both awesome. Unfortunately, I am disappointed with the Rivots and would not recommend them. The Rivots do not have the level of support that I have come to expect from Danner's TFX-based Boot, such as the Desert and Pronghorns. The Rivot fit does not seem right to me, as the front seems to curl up and the boot is too short overall; support to footbed is not up to Pronghorn standards. I am not impressed with the vibram sole as it is very soft and wears down fast. Despite top notch leather, the entire Rivot boot seems somehow delicate, relative to my expectations. The Rivot may be perfect for others, but I cannot recommend it. I wish Danner would either redesign the Rivot (and Torrent boots), or build a serious duty black leather uniform version of the Pronghorn/Desert TFX for folks that want something closer to a 'boot' on the 'boot-sneaker' spectrum. (A good starting point might be the old Danner Striker, except use a standard vibram sole that balances grip with wear). The Rivots now sit beside my unused Danner Torrent boots, in storage. I just can't wear either; they just don't work for me. This is my data point; others mileage may vary.

Best Uses

  • Police

Comments about Rivot TFX 8" Black GTX:

Police K-9 officer, use daily for work. Polish toe looks great. Very little break-in period needed. A bit expensive, but worth it. Best boot I have had in a long time. Use mostly Rocky boots for hunting, but not a fan of their work boots. Tried Bates, Converse, Tactical Research (junk) in the past.

Cons

      Comments about Rivot TFX 8" Black GTX:

      These boots look and feel amazing. They give amazing support while still being light, protective, and a good looking boot.

      I have used 3 other 8" models from Danner during my time in the Military and these are by far my favourite.

      Comments about Rivot TFX 8" Black GTX:

      These are the best fitting and most comfortable boots I have ever had on my feet. I love them. Can not overstate how comfortable they are. Every time I wear them, I'm amazed by them. The fact that they are made in America, and that they are made SO well in America, is just awesome. Way to go, Danner.

      Worth every penny.

      Love this boot

      By LML

      from San Francisco, CA

      Comments about Rivot TFX 8" Black GTX:

      Let me start by saying that I gave this boot only 4 stars because I have been wearing them for only a couple of months. I prefer to give my feet a break and always have two pairs of boots for on-duty, and the Rivot is a great alternate to my Fort Lewis boots. I am a patrol officer and love both of these boots. The Fort Lewis and the Rivot are two completely different boots, and both are very comfortable. The Fort Lewis has a more narrow last, while the Rivot is wider at the toe. The Fort Lewis has a more rigid outsole, while you can feel more bounce with the Rivot. And you can feel the lighter weight of the Rivot. I have worn other brands (SWAT, Oakley, and Rocky), but I've decided that I will only wear Danners for the rest of my career, particularly the ones made in the USA.
