Mountain Light Overton

$330.00
|  Style 30868X
USA Crafted

In the 1960s and 70s, backpacking captivated a generation. True trail junkies logged thousands of miles forging trails, summiting peaks and dancing through wildflowers. To honor the beauty of this generation, we introduce this street-ready version of our iconic Mt. Light™ II, featuring a more modern Vibram® Cristy outsole which won’t track mud or dirt, in case your urban hike takes you further than the corner street pub.


 
 
 

The Mt. Light Overton is a street-ready inspiration of the original Mt. Light, one of the most iconic backpacking boots of our time. Maintaining our high standards, we crafted this iteration with an olive toned single vamp leather, our classic Mt. Light silhouette and the strength and durability of our elite Danner stitchdown construction. Offering up a modern twist on this classic boot, we stitched in a Vibram® Cristy outsole which won’t track mud or dirt, helping you keep that shag carpet presentable.

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.

Cons

  • Heavy

Best Uses

  • Anytime

Comments about Danner Mountain Light Overton:

My first pair of Danner. It requires no break at all.
It resembles the traditional Danner quality of Mountain Light II and combined with the trendy rough out leather with the Vibram white sole.
It has been on my feet the day I received it and nothing else.

Outstanding Prodcut

By Tom J

from Tumon, Guam

Comments about Danner Mountain Light Overton:

I purchased a pair of light overton's before a deployment overseas this summer. After logging 6-7 miles a day in them for six months my boots are holding up very well. As importantly, even with all that beating, they're still sharp enough to wear out in town.

Awesome boot

By Westbound

from Denver, CO

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Great looking
  • Soft

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Standing all day

    Comments about Danner Mountain Light Overton:

    I could not pass this boot up. It is so comfortable with a soft supple suede upper and a soft sole. I work with learther and the quality of this suede is top notch. I love this boot. As for the fit it does seem to run a half size bigger in length then the other Danner boots as the fit chart says it does. The width in EE is good for the average mid width foot. If you have a narrow foot you should call and have one made in a narrow size. This boot right out of the box feels like a nice tennis shoe. I normally have to slowely break in new boots but not this pair. I would highly recommend this boot to anyone who likes the look of it, and I have recommended it to a friend. I own 6 pair of Danner boots and will not stop with this pair. I have to say thanks to Danners cutomer service. I had an issue with an order I placed and they took good care of me. Thanks Danner.
