While there are several noteworthy pairs of Danner boots, the heritage brand’s versatile Mountain Light stompers have been heralded as one of its most popular. Having been adopted by a more fashionable scene through several high-level joint efforts, the silhouette is no stranger to its time in the spotlight, and there’s a new collaboration between the Portland-bred label and Todd Snyder to prove it.
As always, the New York designer’s love affair for American-made classics plays an integral role in this release. That said, a single glance displays the boots’ combination of Snyder’s metropolitan know-how with the traditional silhouette’s rugged appeal. The stylish boots’ uppers are composed of a single piece of water-resistant suede, then finished with the brand’s signature handcrafted stitch-down construction.
In addition to being fully water-resistant, they boast a GORE-TEX lining for consistently reliable weather protection, a vital element to look for in any pair of fall or winter boots. The revamped Mountain Light sits on a shock-absorbing Vibram Kletterlift outsole for maximum traction, paving the way for the perfect amount of grip no matter what terrain you come across. The shoe is available in two handsome colorways, Tan and Moss.
The perfect pair of fall-time boots may have just hit the scene, as the Todd Snyder x Danner Mountain Light Boot is available on the former’s webshop for $400.
