Melee GTX

$200.00
|  Style 15920

Engineered specifically for close quarter tactics, the Melee features lightweight, flexible, athletic performance for quick offensive operations.


 
 
 

Danner's lightest and most flexible tactical boot, the Melee features a unique outsole design. Our unique Melee outsole is constructed with a 360? pentagonal low lug pattern for grip in all directions, a rugged outer lug pattern with molded siping that disperses water and provides maximum surface contact and Danner’s patent pending VIA technology which provides a V-4 abrasion rubber compound in the medial side arch for fast roping control.

Boot Features

  • 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® lining
  • Durable, waterproof, full-grain leather and nylon upper
  • Abrasion resistant toe and heel cap
  • Cushioning polyurethane footbed
  • EVA midsole for shock absorption with an ESS external coating for abrasion resistance
  • Patent pending Danner® VIA technology featuring a Vibram® V-4 ultra-abrasion rubber compound in the medial side arch for fast roping control
  • Danner® Melee outsole featuring a 360° pentagonal low lug pattern for grip in all directions with a more rugged outer lug pattern which sheds water and provides maximum surface contact
  • 8" height
  • 46 oz

DLE-01 Last
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.

Tips for the Perfect Fit

  • Measure both feet. If one foot is slightly larger than the other, select a size that fits the larger of the two.
  • Consider the type of socks you’ll be wearing with your boot. For thicker socks, you may want to select a half size larger than you normally wear.
  • When you do receive your boots, we recommend first wearing them indoors for a few hours to ensure they’re the right fit.

Free Return Shipping
Rest assured that if the boot you receive doesn’t fit correctly, we pay for return shipping back to us. You can order with confidence knowing return shipping is always on us.

Comments about Danner Melee 8" GTX Uniform Boots:

I wear these boots four days a week and ten hours a day. They are one of the most comfortable boots that I have owned. They are also the lightest boots that I own. The outsole is quiet even while they are wet on tile floors. I would feel comfortable standing on my feet all day while wearing the Melees. The boots feel like an extension of my feet. If you are looking for a superior boot.......look no further! These boots are OUTSTANDING!!!!

Best Uses

    Comments about Danner Melee 8" GTX Uniform Boots:

    I purchased these boots in Feb. of 2012 and wear them 6 days a week, 8 hours a day as a corrections officer. I found the boots to be very comfortable, although a little wide in the arch/ankle area. The boots are lightweight and fit like a sneaker. Well suited as a spring/summer boot. They fit true to size. The tread is shallow and not suitable for snow or mud, but traction is adequate on wet tile or concrete. After a little over two months, the stitching in the tongue is coming out and the padding is exposed. I've worn Danner boots for years in both the military and corrections and have always found them to be rugged and reliable, but these are going back for a refund. I don't mind paying a little extra for an American made product, but these were made in Vietnam and it shows in the quality/durability of the product. Shame on you Danner for outsourcing.

      Comments about Danner Melee 8" GTX Uniform Boots:

      The stitching on the tongue of the boot comes apart very easy, this is the second pair that I am returning. I was able to return without any problems or questions. This is the 5th pair of Danner boots that I have purchased, but the Melee is the first that has come apart on me with in a few weeks of wearing them.

      Comments about Danner Melee 8" GTX Uniform Boots:

      I work in the tree care industry. I need boots made of high quality for very rugged and tough use. I have had 3 pair of the malee gtx 8in. Returned 2 for tounge tairing and glue coming off the sole, and now I am sending the 3rd pair back for the same reason. Very disappointed. I have been a avid supporter of danner boots. Not anymore. POORLY MADE [*]JUNK.
