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.
Side Zip
Get in and out of your boots faster with this semi-locking side zipper. It locks itself closed when its zipped up, yet easily releases when you pull the zipper down.
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.
Extended Sizes
To accommodate more people, we've made this boot in extended sizes. We recommend women select 1.5 to 2 full sizes down for correct fit.
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.

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.

I was given these boots as Christmas gift. Loved them at first, since I was exposed to Danners as young Marine in the 90's. However, not the same. I wear my boots casually to & from work as to where I change over into dress shoes. I noticed that the boot is starting to separate from the sole, perhaps compromising the ability to be waterproof. I don't think I will ever buy a pair of Danners again based on the expensive price & poor quality that is being sold.

comfortable yet not a homerun

Comments about Striker Torrent Side-Zip 8" Black:

"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 Striker Torrent Side-Zip 8" Black:

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 charm...so far.
