Danner Boots cut their teeth by making footwear hard-working loggers way back in 1932. Their boots were tough. They had to be. Loggers put in long hours in dangerous conditions – the last thing they wanted to worry about was whether or not their gear were going to hold up. But as times have changed, so has Danner’s customer base. Along with serving the military, serious backpackers, and law enforcement, Danner Boots have also become popular among those living in the city. And the new Danner Vertigo 917 boot is built just for them.
These boots are designed to be just as capable on the street as they are out in the woods. The upper features a full-grain leather upper with a Gore-Tex lining for total waterproofing for when you’re splashing through a river or trekking to work through the rain. To ensure a solid grip, the boots have been outfitted with an exclusive Vibram outsole and mid. What really sets these boots apart from others Danner has made in the past, however, is the special stitchdown technique combined with the capsule construction. The two of these combined make for a more sneaker-like feel and aesthetic. The Vertigo is available in three different colorways, with a retail price of $220.
