One-year of wearing the Danner Melee

Walk a mile in our boots. A look at our the Melee Uniform Boot after one-year of daily wear.

I can safely tell you that I love my Danner Melee Uniform Boots. They’re light, comfortable, versatile, durable and reliable. They’re pretty affordable, too! At just $120, the Melee is a fantastic option for foot gear no matter the climate, terrain or conditions.

Over the past year we’ve worn the Melee as routine daily footwear. From Seattle to DC, to Paris, to Vegas, Panama, Ecuador and Germany the Melee has performed reliably well. Weather in cold or hot conditions, the Melee served as a versatile foot soldier ready for action at all times. Rain, snow, gravel, asphalt, beeches, or rainforests- the Melee is a sure win on both your feet and in your pocket.

Of course, a year of wear comes with a bit of tear. So, we decided to show you how well the Melees have held up despite the countless miles and travel we’ve subjected them to in the the eleven months past. You can see the pitting in the interior heel from kicking off my boots to often without untying them. Still the heel provides compromised support due to the its superb construction.

The external rubber surfaces, sidewall stitches, edges and eyelets are all still in very good condition. The reinforced toes and heels of the boot have also remained in very good shape.

The soles are where most of the wear and tear become obvious. Just like a car tire, miles and miles of travel will require new tread. But, as you can see the Melee has taken us very far and could still go much further. Eleven months of constant wear and these boots are still really strong!
