Tackle any terrain.
The Danner Men's Mountain 600 Hiking Boot carries Danner's legendary quality with premium protection from the elements and aggressive traction on the trail. This low-profile hiking boot is versatile enough for both around-town wear and grueling treks across challenging terrain. The secret to its street-to-trail versatility lies in a smooth-wearing suede upper paired with a Danner Dry waterproof membrane, making for a seamless blend of style and weather protection.
It's built on a relatively low-profile DPDX last, which retains sure-footed stability without adding much bulk. The TPU heel last bolsters stability across the rear of the boot, preventing it from folding in on itself during steep descents. It also boasts the responsive cushioning of a Vibram SPE midsole and unrelenting grip of a Vibram Fuga sole, so you can confidently conquer miles on rocky trails, muddy forests, and snow-covered streets.

Danner Mountain 600
Danner Quality, New Technology
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
The Mountain 600 has combined the classic Danner silhouette and color patterns with modern design trends and technology. Customers have come to expect quality from Danner. The 600 is no exception, drawing its design from the original Mountain Light boot. From the moment you receive your boots you are reminded of the detail and thought that has gone into this product.
Right out of the box the boots are comfortable. The fit runs true to size, I wear a 12 in most hiking and athletic shoe brands and picked up a 12 here as well. The boot is snug enough to allow me to wear thin socks and not have my foot sliding around inside, but also spacious enough to accommodate a thicker hiking sock. The suede upper is extremely soft and conforms to the top of your foot very well. The lacing system allows you to make adjustments in multiple zones of the foot to ensure a great fit. Unlike some boots I own the lace hooks are very easy to catch with the laces but do not stick out far enough to snag pants.
The boot can easily be worn as a casual piece, dressed up or down. But is more than capable of handling itself on the trail with an aggressive tread pattern and a Vibram sole. Danner uses their own waterproofing known as Danner Dry. No issues here as my feet felt comfortable temperature wise all day. The boot breathed well, and I haven’t noticed any clammy feeling. I have yet to wear them in any wet environment (it is Utah after all).
I think the feature I love best is the weight. The boot feels light as soon as you pick it up, but even after a full days use you still hardly notice it is there. Overall I have nothing but positive things to say about this product. In today’s world everyone is constantly on the go, and rightfully so, there’s a lot to see. If you’re like me and arrive at a lot of your destinations by foot, you might as well do your feet a favor and make them comfortable along the way.
