The USA-made Mountain Light™ II hiking boot is legendary for its unmatched quality, durability and support. GORE-TEX® lining provides waterproof protection. The Vibram® Kletterlift outsole offers lightweight comfort as well as superb shock absorption and guarantees great traction and stability on both wet and dry surfaces. Danner’s famous stitchdown construction provides a wider platform for stability and the lace-to-toe system provides a secure fit.

Boot Details

  • 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® liner is engineered to keep your feet dry and comfortable - even in extreme conditions
  • Full-grain, one-piece, all-leather upper offers a classic look with superior waterproof protection and durability
  • 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
  • 5" height

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 Mountain Light II Black Hiking Boots:

        It just doesn't get better. I bought a pair of Mountain Lite II hiking boots and the first time I put them I wore them for around 6 hours and took a 10 mile hike. To my great surprise these boots required no break-in - I had no blisters nor were my feet uncomfortable at any time. I'm so pleased that I'll be ordering another pair of Danner's for hiking and will skip the wondering if I made the right choice. Thank you Danner for keeping American Made quality alive.

        Comments about Danner Mountain Light II Black Hiking Boots:

        Before i purchase a pair of Mountain Light II, I've gone through about half a dozen sites containing reviews and most of them are 50/50 about this particular model. A lot of the said "reviews" can only be taken with a grain of salt (yes, you know what i'm talking about)... only a few seemed authentic.

        Anyhow, I went out to purchased a pair despite of what i've read. The boots are bought in an outdoor outlet so i got to try them out before making any final decision. Initial impression was good; detail craftsmanship, high quality leather and metal wear. Test walking in the shop revealed the first problem that everyone had brought up... the tongue of the shoe did not fold well, the leather on the top bites into the top of your foot. HERE'S THE REMEDY; before tying your shoe lace, fold the leather in PROPERLY, make sure the creases are SINGLE fold and not crumpled together. This way the top of your foot won't hurt so much in the breaking in process. I'm not sure if the fold will hold over time but much better than those folks who expects the leather to fold themselves... TRY IT, it only takes 1 minute of your time.

        The second problem is also a popular one amongst those who REALLY wore the boots. I think... oh say EVERYONE on this planet have achilles tendon so why did DANNER design a 5 inch boot with NO CURVE on the back of the boot? Testing them in the outlet was fine but once i left the place and went shopping in them for the next 3 hours... my achilles were showing signs of pain... and this is just from walking around the mall, can you imagine what it'll do hiking in them for 6 hours? Adding a slight curve behind the boot will ease the pain for sure... i don't expect it to be a cure because this IS a flaw in all 5 inch boot as the back of the boot will indefinitely come in contact with the achilles tendon.

        I think you guys craft very good products but PLEASE listen to your customers! Having pride is one thing, too much will destroy you. Make the changes, DANNER!

          Comments about Danner Mountain Light II Black Hiking Boots:

          It is so hard to find a true welted construction hiking boot these days, let alone one made in America. These are better than anything else I've tried or felt in 25 years, and they are made to last, being fully serviceable. What a bargain at [$] (although mine were [$]). In twenty years when I need another pair, I'll be back. I love them.

          I have Bought Danner boots for many years and have several pairs to include the Recon boot, The Talus and now the Mountain Light II. Not to mention my Army desert boots. Depending on where I'm never in doubt about my footwear when I know I have a pair of Danners on. Whether in my Civilian Occupation (law enforcement) or my Army Occupation (MP)I wear my danner boots.
