Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Comfort
  • durability
  • Great Customer Service
  • Long Lasting Soles

Cons

  • none

Best Uses

    I've been ordering Danner boots since 2006. They have great customers service and a great return policy. I highly recommend the Torrents. I've had no issues whatsoever. I've had my current pair since December of 2012. Being in law enforcement, they've been exposed to the all the elements. Great in the heat (100 degrees) and dry in the winter. I hope the Torrents will be around for a very long time!

    Not only for law enforcement but for motorcycling too!

    By Harley Infidel Mike

    from Seattle, WA

    Pros

    • Comfortable
    • Sole (Good Traction)
    • Speed lacing
    • Sturdy
    • Zipper

    Cons

    • Cannot polish
    • Foreign made

    Best Uses

    • Everyday wear
    • Motorcycling

    I purchased a cheap pair of law enforcement boots for riding my Harley around town. They were actually more comfortable than "motorcycle boots" and I decided to get serious and buy my first pair of Danners. I looked through the online reviews and decided that this was the pair for me. I headed down to my local Danner store in Renton, Washington and found a pair to try on. From the moment I put them on my feet and zipped them up they felt comfortable. These boots were so comfortable I knew that a break in period would not be required. Here is what I like about the boots from the perspective of a motorcyclist/biker: 1) The leather on the left boot is sturdy yet soft enough to handle shifting gears on my bike 2) The 8-inch height provides ankle stability and protection 3) The side zipper makes it easy for on and off (even with the speed lacing feature on the shaft of the boot) 4) The boots are light weight 5) The lining is comfortable enough to keep you warm yet breathe through out the day (think of asphalt, freeways, stop and go traffic, etc.) 6) The leather is sturdy yet light and most of all 7) So doggone comfortable that you want to wear them all day and even to bed!! This is my first pair of Danner boots and "I'll bet my boots" that I will be a repeat Danner customer. You've made a believer in me. Also, for those of you who do ride, lace up boots do have an advantage: If you ever go down and injure your foot, the EMT or whoever helps you can remove a boot like this by cutting the laces off and pulling the boot off with ease compared to having to struggle to pull the boot off as in the case with cowboy or engineer boots.

    I finally know what a quality boot feels like

    By Ivan

    from on the road, via Michifan and Florida

    Pros

    • Easy Onoff Ykk Zips
    • Excellent Rubber Sole
    • great fit
    • Very Very High Quality

    Cons

    • Somewhat pricey

    Best Uses

    • Long Hours On Foot
    • Wet Pavement

    I'm a full time audio engineer, who works outside 40+ weeks per year. Rain, and rough terrain are simply part of the deal. I've tried all the mid-level, off the shelf boot offerings out there. While I've only just received the boots today, (shipped overnight as promised), I can say that the quality of the build and attention to detail, are top notch. They wear like a sneaker, but have a great heal cockpit. I noticed the YKK zips right away. I'll report in after 6 months of use, but based on my first day, I recommend them as your FIRST choice. Don't bother with mid level stuff. I eat four pair of those every year. Buy these. You'll understand quality.
