Danner Explorer 650 Boot

New companies don’t have a monopoly on innovation. Just take Danner Boots for example. The brand has been around since 1932, yet here they are – still releasing new and innovative hiking boots like the Explorer 650.

Modeled after the Light, the Danner Explorer 650 boasts a lighter, more streamlined design that still manages to remain sturdy enough to take on any adventure. The upper of the boot is made from a combination of abrasion-proof nylon and full grain leather that, in combination with Danner Dry layering, keeps your feet totally dry and protected. Unsurprisingly, the outsole on the boot is just as sturdy as the upper. Featuring an Ortholite footbed for cushioning and Vibram’s special Escape outsole with Megagrip integration, the boot’s outsole keeps hikers comfortable connected to the trail on the all the way up ‘till the last mile. The boot is available in two colorways for men.
