851 Last
The 851 last is an update to our popular 850 last. This last fits true to size with an athletic and supportive fit while providing ample room in the toe. Offering a specific heel shape that locks the heel in place for better fit and comfort on the back end of the boot, this supportive fit is ideal for those needing high mileage performance from their gear.

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.

comfortable yet not a homerun

Comments about Danner Striker Torrent GTX Side Zip Uniform Boots:

"This definitely is a very comfortable boot. However the only downfall would be the the speed lace loops. I love the spped loops concept but the first loop pushes down on my ankle and hurts quite a bit. After breaking them in a bit, the pain has subsided some. I will see how they feel in the next two weeks or so."

Comments about Danner Striker Torrent GTX Side Zip Uniform Boots:

I wear these boots as staion boots and for driving. I wore them for less than 6 shifts. At first I was very pleased with these boots. But after just a few uses the stitching that holds on the side-zip zipper came undone and the zipper seperated from the side of the boot. This is the third time I have had an issue with a Danner zipper product. The first two times were with the lace in zipper kits for my Acadias, third time was the far.

        The finest quality and lightweight boots I have ever purchased. The overall quality and comfort exceed that of any duty boots I have ever purchased...and I have bought them all in the search of quality and comfort.

        I will purchase only Danner's for the remainder of my Law Enforcement Career!

        Fantastic Boot

        By Mike

        from Oregon

        Comments about Danner Striker Torrent GTX Side Zip Uniform Boots:

        I'm an EMT so I'm fairly active during my 12 hour shifts. I've had these boots for over a year now and they are still amazingly comfortable. Very little in the wear and tear department: nothing a little show polish doesn't fix.

        When I first got them I was concerned that they were a little too snug to be worn with thicker socks (cold winters and all), but after they were fully broken in, that was no longer an issue. If I ever need to buy a new pair of boots again, these will be the first thing I look at.
