When we visit the digital pages of Huckberry, we know what we’re going to find — nothing less than the best, most versatile, toughest and frequently, most stylish gear for guys on the planet. The same could be said of the rugged, darn-near-perfect boots being made by Portland’s Danner — a tradition they’ve followed for decades. So when we heard that Huckberry and Danner had teamed up yet again on a standout pair of excellent, limited-edition boots, we were intrigued.
The Danner x Huckberry Mountain Pass Gold Rush Boots are a Huckberry-exclusive update of a lauded Danner style — and these rugged leather boots fit right in with 2019’s Huckberry x Danner collab, which updated the Vertigo 917 silhouette.
As premium a pair of USA-made boots as can be, this collab is limited to 250 pairs (so act quickly), and it’s here just in time for spring (so get ready to get out and explore). They’re also part of Danner’s famed Portland Select line, a carefully curated “selection” (yes, pun intended) of the brand’s best and most lauded boots. This pair in particular just might take the cake, though.
Let’s start with the basics: The Gold Ore colorway is as cool as can be, and these boots will break in handsomely over time because of that. What’s more, the quality and craftsmanship is evident from top-to-bottom, starting with the Vibram Kletterlift Thin outsole. This outsole — a staple of tough Danner boots — is designed to provide all-day comfort and durability, so that makes these surprisingly stylish boots fit for both the trail and the tasting room.
The full-grain leather upper is also water-resistant, and you can rest easy knowing the GORE-TEX lining is breathable and waterproof, too. The overall effect is one of standout quality and high-class style — the Danner x Huckberry Mountain Pass Gold Rush Boots are up for anything this spring, whether worn with faded denim and a charcoal Oxford or a rugged henley and canvas work pants. If you weren’t yet clued in to the magic being worked by Danner and Huckberry, now is one heck of a time to get acquainted.
