DANNER TACHYON 8" GORE-TEX BOOT
We've taken our typical Danner boot and completely overhauled it to take out any and all extra weight without neglecting comfort and performance. This upper is completely synthetic for superior weight savings with the added benefit of an ultra-fast dry time. Speed lacing and a 3-layer comfort system work together to create a snug, comfortable fit. Most boots in this weight category have a composite rubber outsole but the Tachyon features a true rubber outsole for superior abrasion resistance and traction.
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 toebox allows the foot to naturally react when bearing a heavy load or changing directions laterally in high intensity environments.

Lightweight and durable
I’ve been wearing these boots as a Patrolman for over a year now. I work 12 hour shifts in Southeast Texas. These boots are the most comfortable boot I’ve ever worn. Even in the sweltering heat the Gor-Tex doesn’t get too hot. I’ve stood in ankle deep water for several minutes without getting my feet or socks wet. They weigh about as much as my running shoes. After over a year the tread is still good too. They are also very easy to polish. They only thing I changed with the boots is when I initially bought them I replaced the laces with 550 cord. The original laces seemed very good, I just personally prefer 550 cord. I’ve spent 20 years in the military, and these are the best boots I’ve ever owned. I wear orthotics which fit perfectly in the boot after I remove the insole.
Wow, awesome review Jim. Thanks for sharing your experience with the boots!
