Fueling your car up before you left town would have been a good idea, but your jalopy burned its last fume right as you reached the mountains, so you'd might as well take a quick hike in your Danner Men's Jag Boot before you thumb it back into town. With a killer casual look, waterproof insert, and breathable mesh lining, the Jag pulls double duty as around-town casual boot and light hiker for mellow days in the hills. It's made with a combination of canvas and suede, and it has a retro waffle sole that's a throwback to Danner's Free Spirit hiking boot from way back in the '80s (that's the 1980s, by the way).
- Be ready for an unexpected hike with this trail-ready boot
- Danner Dry insert protects feet from puddles and rain
- Suede and canvas upper has a retro look and feel
- Breathable mesh lining helps keep feet cool and comfortable
- OrthoLite footbed provides day-long comfort and crucial support
- Danner Waffle sole inspired by vintage Danner boots
- Item #DAN001Y

Bought on Mar 22 2018 it's now November 2018. Super comfortable out of the box. However after 3 months of daily wear the rubber toe has pulled away from the leather. The EVA has separated in places. The waterproof material does not work.... and the list goes on. For the price of these boots they should blow away a set of Keens or Merrills. I wear theses about every day and don't do a whole lot of packing or carrying of heavy loads. I work over seas and expect a company like danner to build a better boot. The sole wore out way too fast as well.

Uncomfortable above ankles
Gusseted tongue is extremely uncomfortable. I had to return them.

Trash. Company doesn't stand by product.
After little over a year the waterproofing gave out totally. Company won't stand by the product. Absolutely garbage. Barely used and went to junk very fast. Sad because they were very comfortable...but what good do they do after such little use and no water protection. JUNK!

Round Town Boot
I wanted a comfortable waterproof boot for wearing around town during the winter. This guy fits the bill, looks great, and has held up well.

I love the way these boots look. They have a retro style but are super comfortable. They look so nice and are so stylin i use them for around town, but they are definitely rugged and comfortable enough to use for hiking/backpacking/going on adventures.

have you taken them backpacking at all? how did they hold up?

Light and Comfort
I work in a very dry, VERY hot environment. I buy new shoes every 3-months. These shoes are very light, comfortable and perform. I did not buy them for hiking, trail walking etc. I bought them for every day use. I wear them on concrete, sand, and dirt daily. I wear heavy gear on certain days. Which I expect to break the shoes down faster. But so far so good, 2-months in. Since leather shoes are hot on my feet I chose these danners in the steel gray/blue wing color. I’m very impressed and am looking at purchasing another pair soon. True to size. 208lbs, 6,3” 10.5 shoe size.

Getting a pair in every color
Another great product from Danner, function, fashion, comfort, durability. I've been wearing these this fall/winter and can't say enough about them. They are my go to boots for non technical peaks as well as hangin with friends and even yard work. Fit's true to size and I'll be buying more.

My husband's review...Are they boots, are they sneakers...nobody knows. But they're awesome. They look great and I often wear them casually, but they are sturdy boots that would definitely work as hiking boots too. Great support and great soles. Recommend

So Far, So Good!
Living in the PNW, I needed an everyday boot I could use to bike commute in/get around town, without worrying about the constant downpour of rain soaking my feet (I live in Portland). The Jags have been rock-solid so far, offering a stylish design without sacrificing functionality. The fit is awesome, and were ready go out of the box (no break-in period necessary). Seeing as how I got these primarily for city use, I haven't been able to test them out on any trails yet, though, based on how they've performed so far, I'm confident they'd serve fine for day hikes. Stoked to add these to my Danner collection.

Where have you been all my life?
I've spent my hiking life suffering through stiff and heavy boots. These Danner's though, they offer plenty of support while being lightweight, flexible, and comfortable straight out of the box.

Great out of the box!
These boots fit great right out of the box! Immediately comfortable and true to size. Come with red and blue laces. UPDATE: Just purchased a second pair in another color. These are my "daily drivers" as far as shoes are concerned.

These boots are great. Stylish, retro, and comfortable.

Runs a tad big
Great boot. Love the craftsmanship. High quality. Lots of compliments. Functional AND fashionable. Haven't done big hikes in them but I'm sure they'd be adequate. They do seem to run about a 1/2 size large.
April 3, 2019
any update on those big hikes? How would they hold up with consistent backpacking?

another great Danner boot
Really liking these so far. Lots of day hikes and long days in the city and they are super comfy. Surprisingly good arch and ankle support despite the low weight. I could easily see doing a 2 night summer trip with a 40 pound bag with these bad boys. I love the styling on the Jag...they look great with jeans around town and don't have that typical "dorky hiker" look. My only gripe is that the tongue is connected high up and creates a crease, which kind of rubbed for a while during break in. I was concerned at first but it has since softened. Had to buy these on Zappos since BC was sold out in my size.

Tim, Thanks for the review on those! I agree that Danner has some good looking hiking shoes. We'll be sure to be in stock next time! Have fun out there.
September 21, 2017
High, Tim. Great review. Cool picture. I would like to point out that the tongue gusset being so high is important to keep debris out of the boot. Though, it is unfortunate that it was uncomfortable. It being so high actually raises my interest in this boot, so thanks for mentioning it.
September 24, 2017
Jason - it was only an issue during the break in period. Once it softened up I no longer feel it.

So stylish So functional
I bought this boot for the looks but dang it works awesome as well, the Danner Dry is money. These boots were comfortable right out of the box.
March 20, 2017
I'm a fan of function, Im a bigger fan of looking great when it counts. Perfect light hiker that is stylish and trail ready. The foot bed creates instant satisfaction, you know you are going to at least be comfortable and dry! If you have any questions about this boot or any other hike and camp needs, give me a call!

My new favorite boot!
Awesome boots - super comfortable, lightweight and great protection from the elements. I ordered these in two colors with the intention of returning whichever color I liked less. I liked them so much that I kept both pairs. This was my first order from Backcountry, was very pleased with the customer service.
November 21, 2016
Thanks for the awesome review Dave!
October 18, 2016
These are a great cross between sneakers and hiking boots. They are nice and light, but quite supportive. Also, to look at them you would not think waterproof, but the "Danner Dry" hasn't let anything in yet. I'm in love.
March 3, 2017
Question - how is the arch support? I saw a review on Zappos that said there was "zero" arch support and that's keeping me from biting the bullet on these bad boys.

Those beads tho

DannerDry is legit
May 4, 2018
Give these about 1 year of light use and that "Danner Dry" will leave your feet cold and wet. Trust me. The waterproofing on these degraded faster than any boot I've owned and Danner does not stand by their products.
