Topo Designs x Danner Mountain Light Boots

Posted in FOOTWEAR, STYLE By

If we say picture the classic hiking boot, probably the Danner Mountain Light just popped in your head. (Unless you skipped breakfast. Then you’re just thinking about a boot-shaped bagel.) For the properly fed, this limited edition boot takes thirty years of hiking function and form and gives it a new interpretation, thanks to Danner’s collaboration with Topo Designs, a Colorado-based, USA-made outdoor gear maker.

The red and black scheme is all Topo, along with the red flecked paracord laces. The manufacturing is all Danner, made top-to-bottom in their Portland, Oregon factory. The result is a pair of those rest-of-your-life boots that will last through resoling, restitching and part replacement.

But can you hike in them? With a Vibram outsole, you’ll get traction. The waterproof yet breathable Gore-Tex liner will eradicate the damp, and the premium Horween leather won’t fall apart when it meets a rock. So if you’re still thinking about breakfast, go eat. Then get yourself some boots. – $390
