The Beauty of Backcountry

An icon of craftsmanship, Danner Boots stand out for their rugged, utilitarian beauty.

The company’s line of hiking boots, which range from heavy-duty backcountry boots to lifestyle models fit for a stroll on city streets, follow a legacy of handcrafted, U.S.-made quality that extends back to 1932.

When a pair of Danner boots finally breathes its last breath, however, some boot-owners have been known to send them back to Danner’s recrafting shop in Portland, Oregon for repair rather than retirement—the sole might be replaced, but the soul of the much-loved boot remains.

In the 2014 film “WILD,” based on Cheryl Strayed’s best-selling book about her transformative 1,100-mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail, actress Reese Witherspoon is outfitted in Danner’s Mountain Light Cascade boot.
