Based in Portland, Oregon, Danner have been making some of the world’s highest quality boots for over eighty years. Their commitment to producing goods to an incredibly high standard has seen their boots reach the feet of hikers, servicemen, and even elephants. Combining timeless, heritage inspired style with superior materials and craftsmanship, a pair of Danner boots will carry you wherever you need to go.
The Danner story started in 1932 when Charles Danner spotted an opportunity to sell tough, reliable work boots to local people in Oregon, USA employed in the logging industry.
But Charles wasn't just intent on making money. He wanted to supply the best handcrafted boots anyone had ever seen. These were boots with purpose and integrity - footwear to equip those who choose the unlikely path, those who cut fresh trails, those who pioneer. Danner boots combined practical features, including substantial soles and sturdy, but comfortable leather uppers that would keep feet snug and dry in any challenging terrain. To this day the brand continues Charles' mission by manufacturing high-quality boots that are perfect for all kinds of adventures.
The fledgling Danner boot company faced many challenges such as the Great Depression and World War Two. But with the daring spirit of the Pioneers who had travelled the merciless Oregon Trail just eighty years earlier, Charles stuck to his principles. You can still still see his ethic of highly skilled craftsmanship in our current collection of high-quality Danner boots.
Charles' sons, William and John, took charge of the company in 1945. Their heritage of stitching only high-quality Danner boots still prevails. Handsome leathers, eye-catching colours and practical, but stylish designs appeal to adventurers who appreciate quality.
Today’s Danner boots include beautifully soft, but incredibly robust full-grain leather that's been oiled for protection against the rain and mud of any rugged wilderness, and ongoing collaborations with Gore-Tex and Vibram allows boots to be made for any purpose.
Danner boots typically incorporate soles with a reliably firm grip. They won't slip and are protected against oil and electrical hazards. Whichever design you choose, your boots will be reliable in all kinds of mountain trails or outdoor work space. You don't put on a pair of Danner boots to sit around the house; they're made for adventure, exploration, and the hard work the men and women who wear them perform day in and day out. We're confident you'll be delighted with your Danner boots, but if not, we'll take them back up to sixty days after purchase.
