Salomon Discovery GTX boot review by Bill:
I’ve worn – and worn out – many pairs of Merrell, LL Bean, Vasque, Keene, and other boots over the years. Most of them have been okay, though my bunions have split seams (Vasque) and Arizona rocks have worn treads early (Merrell). Salomon boots aren’t perfect either, but they have consistently been the most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn, both out of the box and two years later when there’s no tread left. This is my third pair, and once again they are a delight.

Salomon Quest 4D GTX Boot review by Patrick
First let me start by saying I am merely a day hiker, nothing extreme or expedition. That being said I have worn merrel for alot of years. So this time around I needed something a little higher for support and wow. These things do fit like a slipper they are extremely comfortable to wear. The laces are tough since I usually pull pretty hard on them and the hook lace system I have always preferred. Some people say these fit like a ski boat and I could see that perhaps as Salomon makes Ski Boots. I just got back from a weekend from leyus caves to mt. adams and goldendale area. I forgot I was even wearing these things. What I mean by that is, “there wasn’t anything I noticed like heel strikes, sore foot, blisters or anything that would even have me look down as if something felt wrong. My new favorite hiking shoe/boot.

The Danner TFX is made for soldiers to pursue combatants over diverse terrain. The TFX has a rugged and aggressive outsole and Danner’s patented lightweight TERRA FORCE X system, which provides stability and support.

Danner TFX Desert Rough Out Review by Justin Smith
Quality 5 out of 5
I just got back from Afghanistan. I wore these boots everyday for a year. Wore them out as a matter of fact. That’s why I’m here buying another pair exactly like my last ones. The Danner 26016 is far and away the best military boot I’ve ever owned. They are fantastic under heavy loads, and I don’t find the lacing to be an issue. I’ll not own another kind, given the choice. Extreme hot, extreme cold. 100% satisfied, and I’m coming back for more.

Danner TFX Desert Rough Out Review By Michael G. Alsop Quality 5 out of 5 stars
These boots came highly recommended from a buddy I was in Afghanistan with, now I highly recommend them to you. They are VERY comfortable, light and perfect for desert Ops. My first pair was cut off when I got wounded but I’m back to order another pair. I have worn several brands of boots in numerous Middle East countries and covered many miles in each, but these are the best. Sure the sole gets a little worn but they surpass any other boot I’ve had. I’ve had boots that didn’t last 6 months of harsh punishment on my feet and these were great for over a year and they still had several klicks left in them. Do yourself a favor and buy a pair. On an extra note, it is a very good idea (with all tactical boots) to try a pair on first for the appropriate fit.
