Danner Pays Homage To Its First Caulked Logger With The Heritage 917 Boot

Aug 20, 2020

Category: Gear

It’s not often that Danner releases a new boot silhouette, but when they do, it’s a cause for celebration. The American footwear manufacturer has been producing quintessential outdoor and workwear models since 1932, and now, they’ve utilized their expertise in both genres to create the Logger 917 — a heritage-inspired design piece that references the high-quality boots it once made for Pacific Northwest logging companies.

The Logger 917 is essentially a mish-mash of the brand’s precursive models, offering wearers the spirit of Danner’s first caulked logger boot while adding in a bit of modernity for good measure. It takes on a premium full-grain leather upper that’s been revised and informed by the original model; this time, however, it’s been enhanced with snow- and rain-shedding GORE-TEX technology, outfitted with a classic lace kiltie for increased protection, and finished off with a grippy Vibram® 917 outsole for unparalleled traction while on the trail. Of course, all of these modern construction principles translate well to the urban area, too — meaning that you’ll be able to rock these bad boys at the workplace, during a night on the town, or to the coffee shop, without feeling like you’re out of sort. Head to the brand’s website to grab a pair of your own for $230.
