Made in their Portland, Oregon factory, the Mountain Pass was created to be a lighter weight and more versatile hiking boot that still reflects the classic Danner styling. Built with light hikes and city streets in mind, the overall design is inspired by the original Mountain Light with an updated construction method that integrates the shank, midsole and lasting board into a single piece. This new, unified platform, combined with a low profile Vibram outsole, allowed a significantly reduced weight and created an out-of-the-box comfort that doesn't come standard with most classic hiking boots.
The Explorer 650 combines Danner heritage with the latest performance features. The result is a lightweight, agile hiker. The Vibram SPE midsole provides a durable, cushioning platform and the Vibram Megagrip outsole technology offers best-in-class traction for multiple types of terrain. 100% waterproof barrier allows moisture to escape without letting water in, keeping your feet dry and comfortable all day long.
The original Danner Jag debuted in the '80s as a lightweight alternative to the classic, heavy-duty hiking boots. After a few years on the trail supporting external frame backpacks and complementing denim cut-offs, the Jag was retired. Now 30 years later, Danner is reintroducing the Jag as a more versatile version of its former self. It’s comfortable both on the trail and around town, and incorporates durable, lightweight materials, a cushioning EVA midsole, and a new waffle outsole that adapts to a wide variety of terrain.
Danner full-grain leathers are the strongest and most durable form of leather. 100% waterproof and breathable, GORE-TEX liners ensure that no water or debris gets in, while allowing sweat and moisture to get out. Specifically designed for comfort and durability; the heel provides superb shock absorption and the rubber compound guarantees great traction and stability on both wet and dry surfaces.
