Start with a last that’s proven from years on the job. Add a supple leather that starts soft and only gets better as it conforms to your foot over time. Top it off with a sole platform that’s designed to cradle your foot. What you get is a boot that doesn’t need to be broken in. It’s all day comfort from the first time you wear it.

The Stronghold has a sole that’s built for comfort and stability. The SPE midsole lays out cushioning that feels super soft and returns energy on every step. It pairs perfectly with the oil-and-slip resistant Vibram outsole designed to grip great across all kinds of terrain. Round it out with a 90 degree heel designed to climb and you have a sole you can count on.

Danner makes the timeless iconic boots you remember and the Stronghold brings style inspired by that legacy. Its heritage-born upper combined with the lace-to-toe design give it the credentials to be a classic—and unmistakably Danner.
