These boots were made for walking—and close quarter attacks. Chockfull of the latest technologies, the Melee is Danner's lightest boot ever. Although super lightweight, the boot boasts an outsole with central 360° pentagonal low lug and rugged outer lug patterns to maximize multidirectional surface grip. The outsole sheds water and provides maximum surface contact. On the medial side of the arch, the Vibram V-4 ultra-abrasion rubber compound allows for better control when fast roping. As for its comfort, it has an EVA midsole that provides cushion and shock absorption. The midsole's ESS coating fights abrasion. The toe cap and heel cap are also abrasion resistant. A great footwear choice for any smash and grab mission, the Melee is durable and will not weigh wearers down.
