Vertigo 917 Boot

Having snazzy shoes doesn't mean you have to skimp on waterproofness or traction. With the Danner Men's Vertigo 917 Boots, your feet can look good and feel good on your next adventure abroad. The Vertigo's classic leather upper is backed up by a waterproof GORE-TEX liner so you can still be stylish and dry on rainy, dreary days out on the town. A comfortable Ortholite midsole prevents foot fatigue for all day wear while you explore a new European city you've never been to before. With sticky Vibram rubber underfoot, these shoes make it so you won't have to worry about slipping on large puddles or slick tile as you make your way from shop to shop, taste-testing fudge and running to catch public transportation.

  • Stylish leather boots for adventuring in the city
  • GORE-TEX blocks out puddles and rain for all-day dryness
  • Vibram soles add reliable traction as you wander wet streets
  • Leather design is classically stylish

Great fit and comfort and looks cool

Great fit, traction, and comfort. Have been busting these out all day every day even in deeper snow for now (not recommended for that in the long term, though) and at work or around town. Great on ice and in winter. Easy to lace up and the laces stay tied. Only beef is that the shoe material (upper?) is not super durable and does get scuffed up a bit, although it's not bad and I wear them at work, so they get banged around. Probably not great for serious hiking. But all in all, it's a great boot to have and nice job by Danner.

Danner Style

I've used it several times
True to size

Bought these for wandering the snowy and wet streets. There is no insulation but a pair of warm socks do the trick. I just wanted something waterproof and stylish and have always liked the way Danners looked. The sole is on the softer side and as a result, these take next to no time to break in and be comfy. Not sure how they would do in the wild, I bought them for city use, however, the construction seems to be very high quality.

I bought these for my husband and this is what he had to say: I was looking for a boot that was a hybrid of the classic Danners and the new school Danners. I used these hiking around in Iceland and they kept my feet dry and comfortable. I wouldn't recommend for long hikes because the soles are not stiff at all.


Can these be resoled by you eventually?

Hi Sierra, Backcountry does not have an in-house team to repair products. Danner does have a team known as recrafters. There are some guidelines in what kind of condition the shoes are, but they do have the option where you can send in your shoe to resole.
