The enemy moves fast. These boots move faster. We built them light and we built them strong — perfect for pursuing combatants in hot, rugged climates. Women's sizes.


Made for soldiers to pursue combatants over diverse terrain, the Desert TFX™ has a rugged and aggressive outsole and Danner’s patented lightweight TERRA FORCE® X system, which provides stability and support. Designed for agility and breathability in hot, desert-like conditions, the Desert TFX® incorporates a Dri-Lex® liner, which mitigates hot weather with superior air and moisture exchange. Approved for optional wear for the U.S. Army per AR670-1.

Boot Details
  • Dri-Lex® lining provides excellent vapor transport, is extremely quick drying, is completely breathable, resists odor and mildew in hot weather

  • 1000 Denier nylon upper material is extremely resistant to abrasions, tears, and scuffs, improves breathability, and dries quickly
  • TERRA FORCE® X platform provides lightweight, durable traction, heel-to-toe energy transfer, side support to enhance maneuverability, and protection from arch overwork and fatigue
  • Sleek, low volume profile with ample toe room provides serious support and comfort
  • Speed lace system for a quick, secure fit
  • Approach TFX® lightweight outsole provides improved acceleration, downhill braking, and side hill traction. Beveled lugs prevent debris build-up

This boot is built on our most popular last, the 850. This last fits true to size with an athletic and supportive fit while providing ample room in the toe. This comfortable, supportive fit is ideal for those needing high mileage performance from their gear.

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 Desert TFX Womens Rough-Out Hot Military Boots:

These boots were awesome the first day I wore them. They definetly aren't water proof, but still great boots. On really steep terrain (I mean really steep) there was a little slippage on the heels. I have worn them all through mobilization and deployment and you couldn't pay me to switch brands or styles of boots.

    Comments about Danner Desert TFX Womens Rough-Out Hot Military Boots:

    I ordered these boot for a deployment and fell in love with them. I had a little problem with break in, across the top where the liner is sewn in, it was a little tight and would leave blisters for about 2 weeks, after wearing them for 2 weeks they were very comfortable. I wore them all through the deployment and still were them every day. They do seem to go through laces rather quickly. I will order again and again and again for as long as I can get them.I will never wear another boot.

    I do alot of hiking with these boots, and when I received them there was absolutely no break in! It was great, I put them on for the first time and was ready to go. I would and already have recommended these boots to my friends. They almost feel as comfy as running shoes.

    Comments about Danner Desert TFX Womens Rough-Out Hot Military Boots:

    Pretty comfortable boot, albeit very wide - cannot tighten enough to not have to wear with two pairs of socks. The laces do not slide easily when tying, and need to be switched out for a normal lace in order to put the boot on quickly. Holds up well in the rocky terrain in Iraq (so not mountainous, but rather lots of smaller rocks), and comfortable for 12-16 hours of continuous daily wear. Some break-in required.

    a severe disappointment

    By Soldier

    Comments about Danner Desert TFX Womens Rough-Out Hot Military Boots:

    These boots were perfect when I first tried them on. They were comfortable, flexible, and fit my feet wonderfully. I have a desk job in the military, so my boots get minimal use (running shoes are the main priority). I figured it would be okay to spend a little more to get a good-looking, comfy pair, as they should last a good long while. Sadly, I was dead wrong when it came to these. Within three months, the insides were noticeably worn out; within a year, I might as well have been walking on pancakes. Any and all internal cushioning and support was COMPLETELY shot, and honestly I was so disgusted that I decided to just buy myself a new pair of a different brand, rather than waste time testing inserts in attempt to return these to a usable status. They are terrific initially, but if your budget doesn't allow for replacements every 2-3 months, do yourself a huge favor and stay FAR away from these. Like I said, they couldn't even stand up to the regular wear and tear that goes with a DESK JOB.
