Quick Overview

Built for speed on the TFX-8 platform system, our lightest weight and most versatile platform, the Torrent features a full-grain leather and 1000 Denier nylon upper, a GORE-TEX® liner and a custom Vibram® outsole design that allows quick movements and pivoting in all directions.
Details

The perfect balance of comfort, support, and durability.

Pride of service comes in many forms. For us, it’s our dedication to creating a better product: to make it stronger, to make it lighter, to make it last. As we developed the Striker Torrent, we challenged ourselves to find the perfect balance between comfort and support, while ensuring that the new Striker would outlast its predecessor.

Full-Grain Polishable Leather & 1000 Denier Nylon Upper
To reduce the weight of the boot, we combine our smooth, full-grain leather with incredibly strong 1000 Denier nylon. This durable upper is completely polishable.
GORE-TEX® (GTX)
100% waterproof and breathable, GORE-TEX® liners ensure that no water gets in, while allowing sweat and moisture to get out.
EVA Midsole
Known for its lightweight properties, EVA is a special polymer that provides excellent cushioning.
Vibram® Striker® Torrent Outsole
360° pentagonal low lug pattern grips in all directions, a flex notch design adds flexibility in key pivot areas and a more rugged outer lug pattern sheds water and provides maximum surface contact.
Danner TFX-8 Platform
Our lightest weight and most versatile TFX construction featuring a cross-stitch design for added durability and stability in the lateral toe and media heel pivot zones.
How It Fits
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.

To be fair, there's no claim to be a direct replacement of the Striker II. To carry the Striker name is what concerns me. This is a high quality product from a great company, but you can't replace your old Strikers with these. They are too short, too narrow in the toebox, excess padding in the tongue, and no heel loop to ease donning in a hurry. Order a width and length larger. Can't return mine, I waited too long. I'll find a needy pair of feet in my department and turn them into Danner customers for life. If you want the closest replacement for the Striker II, look to the Lookout boots.

When I ordered these, these were the new style of Striker boots. I was shocked to see how uncomfortable they were. The tounge pushed down onto the top of my foot and it felt compeltely messed up. As I thought this was a defect, I contacted customer service who said I was the only one who contacted them about this; I knew was not true because everyone in our group who got them was calling to complain. So much for honesty in dealing with customers.

While I have been a Striker boot guy for many years, I am going to have to move onto someone else's products. I have extremely flat feet, wear orthodics in them, etc. The original Strikers were truly a miracle shoe - and this current version was the complete opposite.

They were returned and I'm done with Danner.

Comfortable but way too narrow!

By LE Sgt. JB

from Bay City, MI

Pros

  • Overall comfortable

Cons

  • not true width

    Comments about Striker Torrent 45 4.5" Black:

    Ordered the 10.5/D, which I have ordered for years. The 10.5 was perfect length and, overall, felt pretty comfortable. However, the D was tighter than any D I've ever had. Couldn't wear and ended up having to return, which went very smoothly. Be careful when considering width, but don't fear the return, if necessary.

    I prefer the Striker II over this new design!

    By A. C.

    from San Diego, CA

    Comments about Striker Torrent 45 4.5" Black:

    I have been using the Striker II for over 10 years and this new model is not an improvement - but rather a let down. This new style boot has about 50% less leather than the previous model and the boot feels cheaper. The boot also is much narrower, I wear a EE width.

    Please bring back the Striker II please!!

    Terrific Boots: Will Definitely Buy More

    Pros

    • Great cushioning
    • Tremendous Support

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Hiking
      • Walking

      Comments about Striker Torrent 45 4.5" Black:

      The new Striker Torrent boots have been working extremely well for me. They provide great support and also cushioning. They are roomy enough for an added foot bed or insole. The Vibram sole is a major, positive attribute of the boots. I'll definitely be buying additional pairs over the years, and hope that Danner always makes them. No changes needed!
