Danner has been making hard-wearing leather boots in the USA for over 85 years. You learn a thing or two in that amount of time — like how to integrate tech from Gore-Tex to make the first waterproof hiking boot, which Danner did in 1979. This old dog isn’t dumb to new tricks though, as demonstrated in its newest boot, the Mountain 600 Chelsea.
The new slip-on boot builds on the success Danner has found in its city-to-mountain Mountain 600 collection, which offers an approachable alternative to the brand’s stiff and durable hikers, something that can take its wearer to a nearby summit but is comfortable enough to hang around town too. The Chelsea leans harder into that urban appeal, but still comes equipped with a durable full-grain leather upper that’ll wear-in over time and a Vibram Megagrip rubber outsole for traction anywhere.
If you’re thinking of buying Danner’s first slip-on boot, know that the brand recommends that the best fit is found by sizing down half a size.
