3 Boots Built for Winter’s Worst, No Matter Where You Are

Danner’s boots have the perfect combination of outdoors performance and style to be boots you can wear anywhere.


Whether you find yourself in the altitude of a mountain town or the frosty streets of a city, winter demands a dependable pair of boots. Since 1932 Danner has been building boots that can handle it all. That heritage is alive in the craftsmanship and quality that Danner puts into its footwear. While Danner boots are made to perform in the outdoors, they bridge style with lightweight hiking and cold weather capabilities to be everyday boots no matter where you are.

Winter is going to demand a lot from your footwear. Below are three boots that are ideal for the various places you might find yourself when the cold settles in and the snow starts falling.

Jag Wool Boot

The Jag Wool Boot originally released in the 1980s as a lightweight alternative to Danner’s classic, heavy-duty hiking boots. After a few years on the trail, it was discontinued. But Danner has since overhauled the Jag 30 years later for a more versatile version of its former self — you could say the Jag was a little ahead of its time.

The modern Jag embraces Danner’s streets to the trails philosophy with a cushioning EVA midsole that helps you stay on your feet all day. The entire footbed is open-cell polyurethane for better heat dissipation and air circulation. And the new waffle outsole is adaptable to any terrain. The full-grain leather and wool outer and the 100% waterproof barrier round out the Jag to make it a stylish option that can handle the elements this winter.

Feather Light Revival Boot

The Feather Light boot originally came out in the 1980s as a rugged and capable hiker. A revamped Feather Light Revival is the newest addition to the Portland Select collection that Danner proudly makes in its Portland, OR factory.

A full-grain leather and 1,000 Denier nylon upper makes the Feather Light Revival extremely durable. Gore-Tex® liners offer complete waterproofness and breathability. The Vibram Kletterlift outsole provides superior shock absorption and a rubber compound guarantees traction in any conditions. The Feather Light Revival has a distinct utilitarian, retro style that can thrive in the wild while still able to handle the urban environment.

Raptor 650 Boot

When it comes to a sturdy mountain boot, the Raptor 650 takes the cake. The 8-inch boot is inspired by life in mountain towns to keep feet dry and warm throughout the winter months.

It features 400G PrimaLoft® insulation and Danner Dry waterproof protection for premium warmth and a 100-percent waterproof barrier. The uppers offer a surprisingly sleek profile made from a combination of full-grain leather and wool for added flexibility. A removable OrthoLite footbed provides maximum cushioning and support. And the Vibram Escape outsole has self-adapting lugs and specially formulated Megagrip for complete traction in any weather. The Raptor 650 eats blizzards for breakfast.
