Why We Like The Light Boots
With a long history of making burly, American boots, Danner has become synonymous with quality, and the Light Boots are no exception to this tradition. Their full-grain leather uppers are tough enough to handle rugged trails in the Pacific Northwest, but still look great when you're hoofing it downtown for an evening with friends.
The GORE-TEX lining keeps your feet dry and comfortable when rain falls or the temperatures climb, while the Airthotic footbed offers a surprising amount of comfort for a boot with this rugged of a build. A fiberglass shank provides a rigid and supportive feel in steep terrain, while the Vibram sole delivers exceptional durability.

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.

Love My Danners

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!
