Usually, when a company has been around for close to a century, it’s developed an iconic product or two. For Danner, that might be its easily-recognized Mountain Light, which is a modern retooling of the brand’s very first hiking boot, the 6490. The Mountain Light is made with full-grain leather and a stout Vibram rubber outsole. The design is chunky and outdoorsy in all the right ways, which is why the boot has found its way onto the feet of city dwellers in addition to hikers. But Danner also makes boots explicitly with urban life in mind.
One such pair is the Vertigo 917. Like the Mountain Light, it’s made with full-grain leather and Vibram rubber, but its platform is cushioned with a responsive midsole and its shank is made of nylon. It’s a more forgiving construction that still hits the same aesthetic notes but won’t be as hard on feet during a full day of tromping on sidewalks and asphalt. Right now, they’re 30-percent off at Huckberry for a total savings of $65.
