Danner Light Lovejoy

Style No. 30445
$360.00
USA Crafted

Concluding that our Danner Japan design partners were onto something by combining our classic Danner Light silhouette with an extremely lightweight Vibram® outsole, we decided to take this Tokyo trend, hand craft it in Portland, Oregon and offer it up state side.

 
 
 
 

Product Details

Overview

It’s one thing to see our classic Danner Light all over the streets of Tokyo. It’s another thing to become inspired by our Danner Japan design partners twist on a classic silhouette with a lightweight performance. Which is exactly what inspired the design of our Urban Light. Featuring our classic Danner Light silhouette, a rapids cappuccino leather, a lightweight fiberglass shank for underfoot arch support and an extremely lightweight Vibram® outsole, the Urban Light is hand crafted to the highest standards in our Portland, Oregon workshop.

How it Fits

Danner's 650 EE last offers a roomier fit for relaxed comfort while still offering rugged support and stability. This EE is not as wide as others so it offers the most universal fit for casual, everyday wear. We recommend sizing down a half size for the best fit.

    Comments about Danner Light Lovejoy:

    Very impressed with these boots. They are expensive but you definitely get what you are paying for. They get a lot of attention from trendy young adults. The brown suede and black leather is a real nice touch. I also have a pair of Danner hunting boots and these Urban Lights are just as robust. You can't go wrong with Danner.

    Comments about Danner Light Lovejoy:

    I have been searching high and low for a ultra-lightweight everyday boot. I wanted it to be unique and rugged but still narrow and tactile enough to drive a WRX. This boot nails it.
    I believe my particular boot is NOS? It's more brownish than black. Simply a gorgeous boot. People REALLY like this boot. Dressed up or dressed down it gets compliments. It fits narrow but is extremely comfortable. Very lightweight. The boots are recraftable so any decently trained boot shop can resole as needed!
    Negatives so far are the ankle collars are a touch stiff causing a tiny bit of boot bite. Shifting my moto causes a bit of left toe rub. Off-camber, root ridden, muddy trails can be a bit treacherous. As for the sole wear issue, it's to be expected with the "crepe" style sole. Pick a Gumlight for your next resole?

    All in all the craftsmanship is awesome and they are very comfortable. Thanks Danner for bringing the Japanese hiker style stateside!

    Beautiful Boot, Size carefully

          Comments about Danner Light Lovejoy:

          The craftsmanship and aesthetic of these boots are exceptional. Satisfying to look at and wear. I write this to offer a caveat about the recommendation to size down 1/2 size due to the wide last: This advice did not work for me. 1/2 size down accommodated only the thinnest sock and the boots, likely due to the rugged construction that Danner is known for, do not stretch well. They were not comfortable sized down. If you can't try them on in the store, order your true size.

          • Hiking

          Comments about Danner Light Lovejoy:

          These boots are great except the bottom of the shoe wears poorly. I wore them 10-15 times downtown and they are almost completely bald from walking on the sidewalks. I am going to use them for hiking until I recraft them and get a different sole.

            Comments about Danner Light Lovejoy:

            I ordered these boots along with a pair of Mountain Lights. Both pairs just blew me away with their quality and expert craftsmanship. The color of these boots are more red than the one pictured above. Once slipped on I did not want to remove these. They fit beautifully and have kept my feet dry and warm all day today (my first day wearing them). These will be my urban platforms as I can use them in the office and on the street. Hats off to Danner's made in the USA products. Great craftsmanship like this is a relief to wear after so many years of buying substandard boots. Pricey, but worth every red-cent.
