For nearly a century, Danner has crafted boots with purpose and integrity – footwear to equip those who choose the unlikely path, those who cut fresh trails, those who pioneer.

To this day, our commitment to superior craftsmanship remains unchanged. We continue to craft high quality boots, using the best possible materials we can find, to create a product built to last.


Maybe it’s somewhere you need to go. A different way of life you yearn to live. Or simply the need to fight for what’s right. Go There™ is a celebration of individuals who defy convention to find their own independent path. Where will yours take you?

Go There: Josh Hydeman

Photographer Josh Hydeman has always enjoyed the obscurities in life — the places, sounds and visuals that most people overlook.

He reaches for cult music and films, and he seeks out hidden, unknown spaces in nature. “I love things that go off the radar”, he says. “I think I’ve always been an artist, so I like to point my finger at things that are obscure; things that are special.”

When Josh isn’t capturing images of vast subterranean landscapes for National Geographic and other clients like Outside Magazine, Travel Oregon and more, he’s at home with his girlfriend and their dog, Rex, at their cabin in the Columbia Gorge. “We live in five acres of trees. We can’t see our neighbors. We hear birds, we hear the wind. We’re just down the road from so many hiking trails and waterfalls,” he says. Plus, right in his backyard, Mount Hood is home to another type of cave: glacial.

Mountain 600

Inspired by decades of legendary hiking boots, we partnered with Vibram to forge a new path in hiking footwear for men and women.

The Mountain 600 defines a new category in hiking boots we call Performance Heritage — combining our classic styling with lightweight innovation. Explore beyond the familiar.

Trail 2650

With 2,650 miles, the Pacific Crest Trail provides a wide variety of terrain over its epic expanse.

Whether you’re out for the weekend, a few miles or are looking to get some serious mileage, the PCT has something for you. It’s that need for versatility that inspired our Trail 2650. Built to move quickly and confidently through the terrain of your choosing, the Trail 2650 can easily fill the role of a lightweight hiker or trainer. Using a Trailguard TPU shank and an EXO Heel System, the Trail 2650 is both lightweight and provides stability on challenging grounds.

Mountain Light

Ask a seasoned backpacker what the ideal hiking boot looks like, and you're bound to hear a description of the Mountain Light.

That's because for over 30 years, the Mountain Light set the standard for every new product that hit the market. And in all that time, nothing ever dethroned the original. Today, we're proud to re-introduce this classic boot. Every single pair is built by hand in Portland, Oregon with full-grain leather, Vibram Kletterlift outsoles, and waterproof GORE-TEX liners. The result is a classic design that provides unmatched comfort and support.
