$300.00
|  Style 33020
USA Crafted

Rich pebble-grain leather and 1000 Denier nylon — stitched into Vibram® soles like the roots of a sequoia are stitched in the soil. The Danner Light II is a hiker's best buddy and a bootmaker's masterpiece.


 
 
 

The Danner® Light II™ is USA-made, classically designed, and packed with features. A pebble-grain 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.

Boot Details
  • Made in the USA
  • 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® liner is engineered to keep your feet dry and comfortable - even in extreme conditions
  • Full-grain leather upper offers better protection in cold and wet environments while offering the some of the best abrasion- and scuff-resistance of all of our leather options
  • 1000 Denier nylon upper material is extremely resistant to abrasions, tears, and scuffs, improves breathability, and dries quickly
  • Danner's hand crafted stitchdown construction provides a wider platform for increased stability underfoot. This construction makes the boot recraftable in our Portland factory
  • Danner® Airthotic® a half- length, molded polyurethane instep that cups the heel and supports the arch area of the foot
  • Vibram® Kletterlift outsole is specifically designed for comfort and durability. The heel provides lightweight comfort as well as superb shock absorption. The compound guarantees great traction and stability on both wet and dry surfaces
  • Fiberglass shank
  • 6" height
  • Men’s 61 oz
  • Recraftable
650 Last
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.

Tips for the Perfect Fit

  • Measure both feet. If one foot is slightly larger than the other, select a size that fits the larger of the two.
  • Consider the type of socks you’ll be wearing with your boot. For thicker socks, you may want to select a half size larger than you normally wear.
  • When you do receive your boots, we recommend first wearing them indoors for a few hours to ensure they’re the right fit.

Free Return Shipping
Rest assured that if the boot you receive doesn’t fit correctly, we pay for return shipping back to us. You can order with confidence knowing return shipping is always on us.

    Comments about Danner Light II Dark Brown Hiking Boots:

    I do not write these reviews often but I have got to say that these are impressive boots. I was hoping for a quality product given the Danner rep, but these have exceded my expectations. I do not know who thinks these need break-in time but I found them very nice right out of the box. I have gone through many brands top of the line boots: Merrell, Vasque, Asolo, Patagonia, Solomon, and Ecco to name a few, but these beat them all. Tough as mails, and recraftable. You will not regret the purchase.

    Exactly three years

    By New Yokel

    Comments about Danner Light II Dark Brown Hiking Boots:

    I got three good years out of the boots, every day on concrete, and i will still use them as a second pair. However, the toe has worn through to the inside plastic or whatever and there's major cracking on the left boot. Not possible to recraft them, according to Danner HQ. I'll be honest, i was planning on more than 3 years when i asked for these, really counting on recrafting. At over 200 bucks, it hit my family hard. I'm not going to purchase Danner the next go round and see what a little less expensive boot will do.

      Comments about Danner Light II Dark Brown Hiking Boots:

      I have just completed three weeks of backpacking through eastern Europe with these boots. They performed admirably in all conditions--snow, ice, mud, water... and even in the nice restaurants they still looked great. My feet were always dry, and the soles were great for most surfaces. They are quiet in the big cathedrals and easy to maintain after a day of hiking in slush.

      Comments about Danner Light II Dark Brown Hiking Boots:

      This is my first pair of US made Danners and I am very impressed with the quality of this product. I have never had a pair of boots that are built this well. The leather is top notch and the overall construction of the boot displays quality. The break-in period is a couple of hours and overall these are more comfortable out of the box than my Danner Radicals. My only issue is that there is not an insole but at least it comes with an Airthotic insert.
