Quick Overview

This boot was engineered to be our lightest most flexible boot ever for combat training and for daily use. It weighs in at a mere 26 oz.
Details

A boot first. A sneaker second.

We didn't get our chops building athletic shoes. We make boots. So when we decided to create a lightweight trainer, we took our 80-plus years of experience and created a boot that acts like a shoe, not a shoe that acts like a boot. We recommend women select 1.5 to 2 full sizes down for correct fit.

The boot

Unlike any other trainer on the market, the Tachyon is the first to offer the protection and durability demanded from a boot. With features like a full rubber outsole for superior abrasion resistance, traction, and durability, and a waterproof GORE-TEX option, the Tachyon presents boot performance first, and sneaker performance second.

The sneaker

We challenged ourselves to find the line between developing a boot that offers sneaker-like performance alongside a higher standard in durability than any other trainer on the market. By stripping out unnecessary features associated with most boots and utilizing lightweight construction methods and materials, we were able to create our lightest boot yet.
Synthetic Ultralight Upper
For superior weight savings, we source some of the lightest weight synthetic materials with ultra-fast dry times.
Abrasion Resistant Toe Cap
For added durability, we've added a scuff-proof toe cap to the area that shows the most wear.
Open Cell Polyurethane Footbed
Our polyurethane footbed provides superior shock absorption with an additional layer of open cell construction for improved air circulation.
EVA Midsole
Known for its lightweight properties, EVA is a special polymer that provides excellent cushioning.
Danner Tachyon Outsole
100% rubber for superior abrasion resistance and pentagonal lugs for 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.
How It Fits
The DLE-01 last was designed to be an extension of the foot with superior forefoot and heel capture, stability and a more anatomical shape for comfort. The additional space in the toe box allows the foot to naturally react when bearing a heavy load or changing directions laterally in high intensity environments.

I bought these boots straight out of basic training looking for a lightweight summer boot for my technical training Mississippi. Something to get me from point A to B that wasn't too heavy, yet comfortable. The day I put them on I could barely feel them and with the heat and humidity of the southern United States these are great boots to have if you are just handling your average day to day tasks, no a boot for someone who works around heavy equipment, it provides no protection. But overall I am very satisfied.

Disappointed.

These boots didn't fit as expected and the design/look of the material wasn't appealing to my preferences. I will be returning them to make a different purchase ASAP.

Great Pair of Boots

By Jake

from CA

Comments about Tachyon 8" Sage Green:

I use these boots everyday that I work (USAF Security Forces). These boots hold up very well. They are very comfortable and also are easy to clean. In my opinion, they are better than the Nike boots.

Pros

  • breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Extremely lightweight

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Everyday use

    Comments about Tachyon 8" Sage Green:

    This is the best pair of boots I've ever worn. I had never owned a pair of Danner boots, but this was a great purchase. These are extremely comfortable, durable, lightweight, and breathable. I don't even feel like I've got boots on...they're more comfortable to wear and move around in than tennis shoes. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great durable, lightweight boot for everyday use in any weather.

      Comments about Tachyon 8" Sage Green:

      When I got these boots I wanted to test them out before I purchased the TACHYON 8" BLACK GTX
      STYLE NO. 50122 for duty. I have worn these a just over a month now and have really appreciated Danner's work to make these light and agile while still being able to support hard work days. I have taken them on the range, on hikes, and also just wear them on a daily basis to work. These have become my go to boots. Only con I had was worrying about ankle support, but the boots lacing system and design holds my foot and ankle in place so well it hasn't been a problem.

      I recommend these, definitely worth the try. I plan to buy a pair for duty work soon.
