What do you get when two brands with a penchant for quality design and outdoor ingenuity team up? You get a great pair of boots. That’s particularly true when one brand (that would be Danner) specializes in rugged, durable and functional footwear, and the other (Topo Designs) makes all manner of hard-wearing gear built for the slopes and the city.
The Topo Designs x Danner Ridge Boots feature the best materials money can buy, from Horween leather and durable Cordura nylon on the upper to the kind of waterproof protection that only GORE-TEX can add to the mix. The silhouette is also inspired by the original Danner Light Boot, a classic in its own right that’s proven more than able to stand up to the rigors of the mountain. The even better thing about these boots? Their great looks, from the eye-catching red laces to the type of wearability that’ll look just right with rolled denim and a vest on the weekends. And when you add in their reliable performance and excellent quality, you’ve certainly got a winning pair of footwear in your rotation. They’re a limited edition release, so get ’em while they’re still in stock. – $380.
