You go where others won't and you do what others can't. No wonder your boots have to be tough and flexible. The Striker II GTX's lightweight-yet-sturdy construction delivers.


 
 
 

The Striker™ II GTX® boot is built on the TERRA FORCE™ X Lite performance platform for lightweight fit and durability. A GORE-TEX® liner offers breathable, waterproof protection and the full-grain leather and 1000 Denier nylon upper supply exterior toughness. Non-metallic construction won’t set off metal-based security systems.

Boot Details
  • 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® liner is engineered to keep your feet dry and comfortable - even in extreme conditions
  • Full-grain leather can be easily polished and is preferred by those in uniform and on special tactical teams due to its durability and ability to be cleaned quickly
  • 1000 Denier nylon upper material is extremely resistant to abrasions, tears, and scuffs, improves breathability, and dries quickly
  • TERRA FORCE™ X Lite platform provides lightweight, durable traction, heel-to-toe energy transfer, side support to enhance maneuverability, and protection from arch overwork and fatigue
  • Extended sizes available for women or those with smaller feet
  • Danner TFX® Lite outsole is an oil- and slip-resistant outsole that gives you grip, traction and stability without the weight
  • Nylon shank
  • 8" height

850 Last

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.

Comments about Danner Striker II GTX Uniform Boots:

I purchased these boots October 2009 for my job as a wildlife officer. I wear these boots ever day I work. The boots worked great until February 2010. Eyelets 3 & 4 from the top started breaking. Now the laces are starting to cut through. My past Danner boots would last two years easy. I got three years out of one pair and they never leaked. I used them hunting and fishing for another two years after their uniform service. These new boots do not hold up. The quality is horrific. I hate saying this about Danner boots but save your money. Do not purchase these boots.

Comments about Danner Striker II GTX Uniform Boots:

I bought these boots on the reputation of Danner and the experiences I have had with Danner boots issued to me in the military. I was very disappointed with these very cheap, non-USA made disasters that began falling apart within a couple of weeks. The plastic eyelets were the first to go. After about four months, the soles began degrading at an alarming rate and simply continued to fall apart. I am a police officer and have found these boots to be comfortable, but a complete waste of money and an embarrassment to Danner. Whoever is responsible to quality control should take note and make a change were needed. Bring back that Made in the USA quality that Danner is known for.

Comments about Danner Striker II GTX Uniform Boots:

The boots should not bare the Danner name. I have had 4 pair over the years and the quality is lacking (Department Issued). The laces break due to the poor eyelets that break and they are far from water proof once they are broke in.

    Comments about Danner Striker II GTX Uniform Boots:

    After wearing these for less than a month a pair of eyelets broke. I spoke with Danner and they told me to send them in. prior to sending them in I had six more break. I called again and asked them why they went with the plastic eyelets and was informed there were complaints of the metal eyelets setting off metal detectors. I informed the person they should have the option for metal or plastic depending on the job required. I was promptly told that was not cost effective. How's this for cost effective Danner? You will not get more money from me! I believe the plastic eyelets do not stand up to the cold.
