Danner Boots has been crafting hardwearing footwear for outdoorsmen and loggers since 1932, and while rugged boots continue to be the Portland brand’s bread and butter, the company has increasingly been tapping into other spaces in the footwear market, albeit while still serving the same adventure and outdoor-centric audience. And the latest addition to the company’s lineup is the new Forest Moc.
Engineered specifically for travel, the Forest Moc is built on Danner’s 677 last platform, which is an updated version of the unit found in the brand’s Trail 2650 hiker. Weighing just 1.5lbs (or 24oz) per pair, this highly-packable shoe features a 5” length, shearling-liner leather upper with natural wool insulation, an odor-resistant moisture-wicking leather-lined footbed, a low-density polyurethane midsole, and a nylon shank. The entire shoe is constructed atop the Danner Nomad Outsole, an ultra-grippy, speckled compound made from recycled, reground rubber. Backed by a 365-day warranty, the Danner Forest Moc is available now in Chestnut with pricing set at $140.
