This New Boot Is Made-in-the-USA at Its Best

The first collaboration between two of America’s oldest outdoor brands is a boot that’s built to last decades.


Two of the United States’ outdoor old guard — Danner, with its history of boot making that goes back to 1937, and Orvis, a purveyor of fly fishing and hunting equipment since 1857 — have come together in their first collaboration: an update of the Danner Light II boot. Both companies share an affinity for hunting, fishing and all other things outdoors, and the new boot reflects that heritage with tried and tested materials that will provide decades of wear to its owner — materials like premium full-grain leather, Cordura nylon and a Vibram Megagrip sole. And, if it does break down with time, it’s guaranteed by Danner’s policy of recrafting boots with new parts, stitches and soles.
