Details

Setting the standard with GORE-TEX liners since 1978

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.

Full-Grain Leather & 1000 Denier Nylon Upper
Made from a combination of our premium full-grain leather and 1000 Denier nylon, this upper is extremely durable.
GORE-TEX® (GTX)
100% waterproof and breathable, GORE-TEX® liners ensure that no water gets in, while allowing sweat and moisture to get out.
Danner Airthotic
This molded polyurethane instep cups the heel and supports the arch of the foot. Its half-length shape includes perforations to help air flow within your boots.
Vibram® Kletterlift Outsole
Specifically designed for comfort and durability; the heel provides superb shock absorption and the rubber compound guarantees great traction and stability on both wet and dry surfaces.
Stitchdown Construction
Handcrafted to provide a wider platform, our legendary stitchdown construction offers increased stability underfoot. Many of our stitchdown boots can be recrafted.
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.
Recraftable
Extend the life of your boot with our recrafting services. This boot is eligible for a number of services, including part replacement, leather care and restitching. See our Recrafting page.

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.

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 6" Dark Brown:

    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.

    Comments about Danner Light II 6" Dark Brown:

    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.
