I am using this boot for training up for and going through ranger school. To start off, i put warm as a con because i live in the pacific northwest, my feet were super warm in this boot and I am concerned about going down to georgia in the summer. That being said, the pro's of this boot outweigh however hot my feet have gotten, so far.I have tried many boots, and am writing this review so that readers can get a good idea of what the Rivot is all about.I have used/own the following boots: issue Alama's, issue Bates, Danner Desert Acadia's, Danner Roughout TFX, Garmont T-8, Nike SFB, Lowa Desert Elite, Lowa Uplander Desert, OTB 8" Bushmaster, and the Rocky S2V's. I also don't just walk around the street or go to the range and get them muddy. I've done climbs of over 6000 vertical feet in rough terrain, including snow, ice, mud, scree, rock, dirt, etc. Now I'll finally cut to the chase. These boots feel heavy when you pick them up. They do not feel heavy on your feet. I lifted them up compared to S2V's and the SFB and gawked. Feels like a lot in your hand. While rucking, they felt like pure bliss. So far, because ive only owned them a few days, I've only tested them on steep muddy hills with 80lbs. They exceeded my expectations. Danner has managed to make my feet feel as though they are not on as rough terrain as I actually am with a heavy load. S2V's fail in this department as with an extra 80lbs I could feel every quarter sized stone or bigger jabbing my arch and forefoot. Don't even get me started on the Nike SFB's. Nowadays Danner seems to be the only company getting it right. For heavy loads, you dont want excessive flexibility in the sole, especially side to side, I could wring S2V's and SFB's like towels side to side. The Rivot can barely be twisted at all. However, the Rivot does not feel excessively rigid, nor clunky. They feel light on your feet and grip slick rocks and muddy slopes quite well. Better than Garmont T-8s and S2V's. Danner quality does not lack either. Solid construction, good design, only wish they made them reconstructable. I hate the look of the S2V's and the SFB, and have gotten rid of them, the Rivot is alot more about functionality, but to me beauty is function, hence why this boot is sexy. Your feet aren't worth the risk of buying flimsy lightweight boots if you're on the ground. Sure, lightweights have their place, but supporting a guy strapped with a full kit and ruck? no way. Stand on something solid, and don't jeopardize the mission by compromising the safety of your feet. Buy the Rivot. I give it a 4 only because i want more from Danner, if I say perfect I miss the opportunity of more great boots.

Comments about Danner Rivot TFX Hot Military Boots:

I replaced my worn out Danner TFXs with these. The soles on my old boots wore down to a slick in garrison. So I was a little concerned about stepping up to these before heading to Afghanistan. I have been through ice, snow, mud, sand, JP-8, and many other unidentifiable liquids so far without a problem. The grip is amazing, and they feel like slippers. I have never had such great performance before out of a boot. More to follow as I hit mid deployment.

Comfort and support!

By Backwoods Drew

from Fayetteville, NC

Pros

  • Flexible and supporting
  • Great arch support
  • Light Weight
  • Vastly improved sole

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Garrison wear
    • Military performance

    Comments about Danner Rivot TFX Hot Military Boots:

    These boots are greatly improved from the older model. They are lighter, more breathable, dry quickly, have a more rugged/gripping sole, and support the arch much better. Far superior to the nike SFB. And you wont look like a 5th grader...

    • not enough sizes

    Best Uses

    Comments about Danner Rivot TFX Hot Military Boots:

    Overall this is an excellent boot that has every feature you look for, despite its weight being more than other boots, it feels light on the foot and is great for rucking. A little thick which may make your feet sweat but given the right socks that is no problem. I have ankle issues and that is why I sought a high quality boot after having bad experiences with the issue boots. Your foot lies low in the boot and the sole has a wide base for better support and pivoting. My biggest complaint is that when you spend this kind of money you expect a lot and my problem is I am stuck between a 12 and a 13 and unfortunately Danner does not make a 12.5, so I had to go a little large. If you're listening Danner, a 12.5 would be great in the future, as larger people should still get a great fitting boot. Despite that, Great Boot!

    Comments about Danner Rivot TFX Hot Military Boots:

    I have been using these boots for about 4 months now, I don't have a whole lot of experience with boots but here is my first impression with these. Took me about a month to break them in but I'm not an active duty guy and didn't wear them every day. I do go for ruck marches a few times a month, 6-12 miles with 50lbs, and so far they have been very comfortable boots much better than the issued 390 DES's I have. And as far as them being too hot I can't comment because my feet sweat regardless of what I wear, just something to deal with. My only issue is with the Vibram Soles. After 4 months they're loosing more tread on the heel than I would have expected from Vibram. But then again the rubber isn't the same stiff brick of a sole like on the 390's so its more comfortable to me; cost of a great feeling boot I guess. Since the leather and stitching are still in top shape so I'll keep wearing these until they go flat, then get them resoled and keep going till they fall apart. [$] from [@], hopefully its worth it in the long run.
