Work boots are boots designed to stand heavy wear, protect the feet, and provide high traction. Work boots are generally made from sturdy leather uppers and non-leather outsoles with protective features such as steel toes or ankle guards. Work boots are commonly used for protection in industrial settings, construction, mining, and other workplaces.

I already owned several pairs of Danner boots and decided to try the black GTX with side zipper. I wear a medium but these Danner's were a bit too snug. I was afraid there wouldn't be enough stretch and didn't want to risk it with boots this expensive. I returned them and had Shoebuy replace them with a wide pair. These fit much better and I'm expecting them to last a long time. The quality of the materials is first rate as is the craftsmanship. It's evident when looking them over or wearing them. I've only been wearing them off and on for a few weeks and will report back if any problems crop up. I also wear Danner TFX Hot boots and a couple different Wolverine styles so I don't usually wear the same boots on consecutive days. I was surprised to need a wide in this boot so you might want to try and find a pair locally and try them on before ordering. Shoebuy was great in handling the return and replacement but even when the process goes smoothly, it's still a hassle.

Don't like them at all, too narrow. I have a pair of Danner 1200 gram hunting boots and LOVE them. Fit perfect, warm, comfortable so I bought these, same size and width and they're too narrow and not comfortable at all. Very regrettable purchase.

I have bought Danners for years now and this is the first pair that I do not like. Instead of the 4.5 inch its now 6", almost a full boot and very uncomfortable.

This is my 3rd pair of these boots. Previous 2 pairs lasted about 6 1/2 years each. I wore these to work 95% of the time. I never had any foot or knee issues. I worked 12hr shifts in a semiconductor factory, routinely walking 6 to 12 miles a day. I recommend these boots to anyone complaining of foot or knee pain.
Wears this shoe: Work 95 of time and 50 of time off work.
