Product Details

Overview

The Danner® Light II™ is USA-made, classically designed, and packed with features. A nubuck leather and 1000 Denier nylon upper combined with Danner stitchdown construction offer unparalleled durability and stability. The waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® lining keeps feet dry, and the Vibram® Kletterlift outsole provides lightweight comfort, superb shock absorption, and great traction and stability on both wet and dry surfaces.

How it Fits

The 650 last offers a sleek, slender profile with a more narrow fit. Boots on this last tend to fit those with a more narrow foot better than those with a wider foot. This ensures a snug fit for terrain and activities that demand support and stability. If you do have a wider foot, we recommend ordering an "EE" (wide) in this style.

After having a pair of Acadias as my duty boot for several years now, I needed an off-duty boot that would be ok for casual wear, and be able to handle the rigors of being a hiking and outdoor boot. These fit both roles well. After having these for about 3 weeks, I took them on a 5 day / 30 mile hiking trip. We got rained on for 26 hours and hiked through some nasty/wet/muddy/rocky terrain. These boots took everything thrown at them with no problems, and my feet never got wet. Of the 5 of us, I was the only one not needing to dry my boots by the fire. When I got home, I scrubbed them with a nylon brush and they look like new. Ive worn them to a couple of Christmas parties wearing slacks and collared shirts and received compliments.

FWIW - Im a big guy at 6'4 and 350lbs so Im pretty tough on my boots, good thing is that the Danner's are tougher.

I wore these boots for about five years. Do not get me wrong, they are good boots. The US Army issued them to Soldiers in Afghanistan in 2007-2009 and they served their purpose well. They take a long time to break in, and are very resilient. I have replaced them with the Danner Mountain Light II's which are a much better boot in my mind.

    Comments about Danner Light II Mens/Womens Hiking Boots:

    It took awhile over the last few years with so many choices and options, but anyone will find a Danner Boot that meets their needs. Until this boot, I was sold on the Danner Acadia for year round cop use. For uniform patrol, their is no better boot. But for my current assignment on a task force, the Danner Light II hiker is simply the ideal choice. After one year, this boot has molded to my feet. This boot incorporates everything. With the nubuck and cordura construction there is NO MAINTENANCE of any kind. If we work in an area where the boot may come into contact with contaminants, I simply role up to a car wash bay and hose them off. There is no way you could get wet in this boot unless you submurged your feet over the ankle top (Danner makes a Fort Lewis 10 inch for this reason). These boots are light enough for running up and down multiple flights of stairs, but heavy enough to breach outer or inner doors while providing awesome support to your feet, ankles and knees. For summertime, your feet stay dry and refreshed. In winter use, simply keep your feet warm with the insulated Danner socks.

    Now what do you do Danner? You come out with a military ICH series that might be a step above anything you have ever produced. For now, this is the boot. When I go to get it recrafted, the desert military vibram outsole would blend in to the appearance of this boot. Bottom line America. You get what you pay for. If you get a uniform allowance, your first purchase should be with a Danner Boot. Your feet are the core to your body. Let Danner let you treat your feet well. You will be amazed at the results.

      Comments about Danner Light II Mens/Womens Hiking Boots:

      This is a sad day. I've just worn out my third pair of Danner hiking boots, and that's why I'm snooping around in this catalog.

      I bought my first pair when I was twenty; I turned sixty this year. Three pairs in forty years, and my first pair was stolen. These boots last. Reason to be happy!

      I walk on average an hour and a half a day, on rocks, bolders and rutted fields, thorough mud and cow manure, on steep bluffs with slick descents.

      Have I said I like these boots? I really like these boots!

        Comments about Danner Light II Mens/Womens Hiking Boots:

        First comes the disclaimer: These Danner's are not a boot for all seasons...and they are not (thank God) gimmicky, high-tech uglies either. They are a no nonsense warm-weather boot. I cannot accurately speak to their water resistance because my experience has been with a pair of its predecessor (whatever that model was called).

        That's right...a single pair that I wore for 25 years; hunting and hiking in the West, over the toughest terrain that you can walk over. By the time I lost the things (which is why I'm here, to replace them) the uppers were permanently scuffed but serviceable, and the soles had a good ten years left on them. In 25 years of regular use they did not require re-soling.

        I have never, and that includes 18 months in Vietnam, met a stronger, lighter, meaner pair of boots. For what they are they are the best there is.

          Comments about Danner Light II Mens/Womens Hiking Boots:

          I have worn these boots almost everyday for about five years and just now ordered my second pair. I'm a crop consultant who is corn, soybean, and wheat fields every day in dirt, mud, dust, and everything else you can imagine and have gotten along great with them. Other boots I have owned (even high dollar ones) the most I could get out of them was about two years. I wear a narrow width (B), and have trouble finding good quality fitting outdoor boots, and Danner has never disappointed me.

            I use this product for day to day use at the office, looks good with a pair of khakis etc. I also use this boot for general work around the house, yard work, hauling lumber, hiking etc. An all around great boot, very comfortable, no break in involved, looks stylish, and reasonably light.
