Danner’s Overlooks are built for the guy who works in the city during the week just so he can drive back to his off-grid cabin on Friday night—without having to change shoes. Actually, the upper’s mix of lush full-grain leather and EnduroKnit makes it a stylish and masculine shoe for any type of guy. EnduroKnit is a tightly woven textile made by Danner for exceptional abrasion and water-resistance.
Basically, if you’re looking for footwear that’s stronger than a sneaker, but more functional than an intense hiking boot, the Overlooks strike an effective balance. The technology-packed midsole is dual-density and firm on the edges for balance and support, but soft in the center for comfort and traction.
Its Vibram Overlook outsole features adaptive lugs and is made of a foam and rubber blend that’s comfortable and bouncy, yet durable and grippy. As hard as these shoes will work, they’re still classy enough for casual Friday.
