A legend lives

In 1979, we became the first footwear company to use the now-famous GORE-TEX waterproof, breathable liner. And in 1982, we built the Feather Light with our newly patented GORE-TEX bootie construction that gave us a seamless, waterproof barrier to line our boots. It also allowed us to incorporate new materials such as Cordura® in a mid-height hiker, which secured our position as pioneers in building lightweight and waterproof boots. In the spirit of our decades-long commitment to innovation, we’re bringing back the Feather Light, one of the original models to benefit from the waterproof liner construction. Joining our Portland Select collection, the Feather Light Revival is proudly made in the USA at our Portland, Ore. factory. Premium materials and construction assure you get a high-quality, versatile boot with a distinctively retro utilitarian style.

Durability is timeless

Whether in 1982 or today, we seek of the best components to serve you well. With the Feather Light Revival, not only is its construction durable, but so is its design. With retro, utilitarian styling that has stood the test of time, we constructed the upper from 1000D Cordura® nylon and premium full-grain leather with double stitching. The result is a Feather Light Revival ready to endure.

Weather any forecast

We take great pride in the fact that we were the first company to utilize GORE-TEX to make waterproof footwear. It’s a foundational moment in our history. And the Feather Light was there from the beginning, as one of the first Danner boots with a GORE-TEX bootie. The new Feather Light Revival uses the legendary GORE-TEX waterproof membrane paired with Cordura® panels strategically positioned to provide flex and breathability that other classic hikers can only dream of. It’s a boot that nods to the past with an eye on the future.

Decades of traction

The Vibram® Kletterlift outsole is a classic in its own right known for its stability, comfort and durability. And it’s a perfect match for the Feather Light Revival. Its heel provides excellent shock absorption for long days on the trail or in the city, and the rubber compound guarantees the traction you need to take you to wet or dry grounds and everywhere in between.
