Uniform Boots are boots that have lacing for closure and often rise above the ankle, or mid-calf. Uniform Boots are typically characterized by heavy rubber soles and have a close fitting upper often made of heavy or sturdy materials for ankle support. Uniform Boots may also be referred to as Combat Boots.
Danner Striker Torrent Side-Zip GTX 8" Another well made boot from Danner

Reviewer: Crooked Mile from Atlanta GA
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.
