I am not even sure where to start with my review of the Danner Raptor 650. I own just about every type of winter boot out there, and since I have worn the Raptor 650, those other boots have stayed in the closet. These boots combine  comfort, style, versatility, and functionality of several boots into one boot.

I’m recovering from recent foot surgery, so comfort is my top priority. These boots were comfortable and supportive right out of the box. True to size, quick and easy to lace up and take off. The second I stepped on the snowy/ icy driveway to scoop the Vibram® sole did it’s part to secure my footing better than any boot I have in my closet. Hiking on a snowy path to walking downtown, these boots keep my feet warm and dry thanks to Primaloft® insulation and their Danner Dry barrier.

One final thing I love about these boots is the quilted wool and fur trim. While these two things add warmth, they also add a huge fashionable component that makes them easy to wear with thermal leggings for a hike or skinny jeans and a cozy sweater for dinner in the village.
