Danner's lightest and most flexible tactical boot, the Melee features a unique outsole design. The unique Melee outsole is constructed with a 360-degree 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. Abrasion resistant toe and heel cap. Cushioning polyurethane footbed. EVA midsole for shock absorption with an ESS external coating for abrasion resistance.
