Pleasantly surprised at the day long comfort of these shoes! I waited a month or so to post this review. In that time I’ve tried these shoes on day long treks in the Utah desert and throughout the Wasatch mountains. After finishing a 16-mile day hike which included rocks, stream crossings, and some snow trekking with crampons, I’m sold on the shoes. The tread provides moderate grip, and the gore Tex uppers repel water quite effectively. The support and comfort are superb! As I get older, I’m happy to have a little more cushion in my step. It’s early but the shoes are holding up well to all the abuse I’ve dished out. My only two criticisms are the insoles and the look. I did not like the insoles at all, but this is common for me and it may be due to the shape of my foot so I put the same insoles I put in all my backcountry footwear, that solved that problem. The last gripe might be just the eye of the beholder, but they look pretty lame to me. No matter, they carry me around just fine. Size 13, narrow feet, mid-high arches. I thought the sizing was true.

These might be my favorite pair of shoes ever. I wear them in the snow, dirt, mud. I wear them running, walking, hiking and doing housework. They are incredibly comfortable and durable. Plus they are lightweight and weather resistant. I want to buy another pair.

It's been less than a month but I have nothing but great things to say about these shoes so far. In short: they are durable, comfortable, and fantastic for casual use or serious trials. These are the main points but read on if you like nitty-gritty gear details! (1)They are light. The lightest Danners ever actually. "One pound on your feet equals five pounds on your back" to quote Sir Edmund Hillary after his Everest ascent in 1953. At 27 oz a pair (I measured the 9s I wore), I would expect something much more minimalist than this. Some sacrifice comfort or durability in their shoes to minimize weight. Instead, I was blown away by the performance and support in the arch and heel. These are light, breezy, and somehow still bomber hiking shoes. (2) They're high performance. Vibram soles are deservedly associated with the very best hiking shoes and boots. They provide lasting comfort and great performance. The 2650s are no exception as the 460 outsoles paired with Megagrip rubber crush it out on all conditions. I did plenty of scrambling, hiked in wet and dry conditions, and was always impressed by the deep, multidirectional lugs. I experienced no slippage whatsoever. (3) They're Versatile. The styling and fit make these fit in on the trail or in the city. Though available with a mesh lining, I opted for the Goretex version of this shoe because I plan to spend time in the PNW where conditions are always wet. They ended up being great in the snow too! A goretex lining means you will have a waterproof and breathable shoe. I've taken them through mud, snow, and light rain no problem. However, if your feet sweat a lot, or you step in a deep puddle or water somehow splashes into the inside of your shoe, your feet will get wet. This is true of ANY waterproof shoe. What is not true of every waterproof shoe is that these breathe better than most other options. The 2650s ventilate very well though even in the upper 60s - avoiding sweaty, uncomfortable feet when hiking. (4) They're innovative. Aside from the main points above, this is the first heel counter on the outside of a shoe. The EXO heel system is meant to lock your heel in place. If your hiking shoes have even a little bit of slippage, blisters and discomfort tend to follow. I failed to notice a tangible difference in the external shank from other hiking shoes without it, but it can't hurt! As far as personal experience, I broke these shoes in by wearing them to work and for walks with my dog around the neighborhood. Then, I road-tripped through Utah for just shy of 2 weeks. In Moab I went on many desert hikes. From relaxed .25 mile scenic walks in Arches to 1,500 feet of elevation gain over 4 miles on the Gooseberry Trail in Canyonlands I had no difficulties with these shoes. They remained unwaveringly stable and comfortable throughout. Then, I spent time in Bryce Canyon which had much more snow and mud on the trails than I expected! After encountering snow, ice, puddles, and oh so much mud, my feet were never cold or wet. I got up and down muddy/snowy trails just fine and with no wetting out. A few notes: Hard to speak with authority on durability as . If you plan to have much weight on your back I would opt for the mid version of these or a full boot. If you wont encounter wet conditions I might lean towards the non-gtx version for more breathability, however, I have yet to have a problem with clamminess even in the desert. Sizing: I wear 8.5s in Eccos, 9 in Hokas, and 9.5 in Adidas and the 9s were perfect for me. My feet are vaguely narrow so if you run wide these might not be for you. I tend to order a half size up for hiking shoes as a lot of activity after a long day will make your feet swell this requiring more room. Every inch of the shoe illuminates the thoughtful craft and care that Danner put into the design of this trusty trail shoe. 5/5 from me!

I have a couple pairs of more traditional Danner boots and have loved them, especially after the initial tough break in period. I didn't know what to expect from a Danner hiking shoe, but I can say I'm pleasantly surprised with these. They are a true do it all hiker. Sizing was spot on for me and the width was comfortable, and the vibram soles have great grip on pretty much any ground. They are a comfortable leather but feel breathable enough to wear in summer, and they look good enough to wear casually after a hike. The cushion feels solid and comfy and it might be just me but the heel counter on the outside really feels locked in once you tighten the shoes down. I'd definitely consider getting some more non traditional boots from Danner based on how these are.

I have Plantar Fasciitis and I was looking for a shoe that I could wear during the winter, just for commuting and general wear, this fit the bill. I've also worn them for some light hikes, and I have had zero issues with PF since. These shoes are very well made, durable and look good to boot. Totally recommended.

I have been thinking about getting a pair of Danners for a few years now. This is my first experience with any of the awesome Danner Products. I write this review with about a week of experience with them on foot. These trail shoes have impressed the heck out of me so far. The most notable Pros for me have to be first and foremost the outsole. I Wore them a lot hiking around the foothills of the Wasatch front and this time of year the trails are full of varied conditions. I came across snow, ice, mud, puddles and luckily some dry sections. The Vibram outsole grips like none other. Where my previous hiking boots would surely slip on the ice, These puppies gave me a new sense of confidence. I also noticed the traction made a big difference when I was on a muddy decline. On sections of trail where I would regularly slip and end up with a muddy butt, these saved me from that. Another huge pro to note for me would have to be the midsole. The material they used is cushiony yet supportive. When I put a little more pep in my step and ran, I noticed a nice springiness to the shoes. I really dig that the shoes design is more mellow compared to a lot of other performance trail shoes. A lot of other shoes with this much tech and performance tend to show that off with flashy colors and crazy upper designs which I don't feel is my style. I can wear these to work, out and about around town and of course out on the trails and not look like a goober. The styling is conservative but there are a few small details that I really like. For example, the red stripe on the midsole and the little toe cap with the yellow Vibram emblem are nice details. The Suede upper is high quality and durable. I'm a huge fan of Gore-tex because there no one that does waterproofing better. I can't think of any real cons to this shoe. One thing that I would note is that they do feel a little narrow at the start. I do have bricks of meat for feet so take my comment on the narrowness with a grain of salt. My typical street shoes are vans and I wear those in a size 9.5 and length wise I really would wear a 9 in the vans but due to my wide feet I size up to the 9.5 for extra room and comfort. With these I did't have a 9.5 available to try on so I first went to try the size 9 and those felt a little tight in on top of the forefoot. Because of that I went with the size 10. With the size 10 They do feel a little narrow throughout the shoe for me however, I have noticed that as I have them on foot throughout the day they do become more comfortable. They may just have a break-in period which I must be in the middle of. Overall, I really like these shoes and I can't wait to get to use them more. For a first impression with Danner, I am very happy.
