A modern take on a timeless classic.
The Danner Light Boot combines a whole lot of classic style with some modern goodies. The top is made from full-grain leather, with 1000D nylon side panels that offer superior abrasion resistance, as well as plenty of breathability. A Gore-Tex waterproof membrane is added to ensure protection from the elements. An Airthotic molded PU insole helps to cup the heel and provide stability, in addition to the full-length nylon shank that provides excellent support when backpacking with a heavy load, especially over uneven terrain. The 650 EE is a wide last that is perfect for hikers with wide feet, or anyone who likes a bit of extra room in the toebox during their outdoor journeys. A Vibram Kletterlift sole handles traction in all conditions.

- Q & A
I loved my Mojave Brawler color so much I went back for round 2 in the Dryden. Obsessed is an understatement. These boots make me feel way cooler than I am.

I picked up the Mojave Brawler colorway in this boot and could not be happier. The upper is made of top quality leather and extremely strong nylon. The contrast between the two colors is really appealing and pairs well with some rolled denim. The darker brown color with the lighter contrast really gives me something different to wear compared to a solid brown boot etc...
The outsole is sturdy providing that rugged boot feel without being clunky and overweight.
The Danner Light fits slightly different than the Mountain Light if you have any other Danners in your collection. This boot tends to be more form fitted as it moves up the top of your foot towards your ankle (mountain light tends to be boxer and more open). This provides a great fit, by no means is the boot narrow, it is actually built on a wide last and it is recommended you size down a half size. I wear a 12 in most shoe brands and I followed Danners recommendation to size down a 1/2 and the 11.5 is perfect. I love this boot so much I have picked up another pair in a different color.
This boot is made in the USA (their Portland factory) so if that's something you are looking for then this would be a good place to start.
Danner Stumptown Light
I ordered these for my boyfriend and he absolutely adores them. They are perfect for light hikes, but we haven't taken them out on any serious backpacking treks yet. They are also nice enough for him to wear into the office - He works in a pretty casual office, but they look great with a flannel and pair of levis. Definitely worth the money, the quality is top notch and they are worth it!
