Danner is one of America’s greatest boots makers and they have decades of history in this specialty. Founded in 1932, the name ‘Danner’ has become synonymous with the finest craftsmanship in leather boots.
Their latest release is an exclusive launch with Huckberry and it’s absolutely gorgeous. The Danner x Huckberry Vertigo 917 ‘Gold Rush’ is perfect for someone like myself who hits the trails but not every day. This is a stylish boot that’s versatile and built for both city life and hiking/camping.
Versatility, style, support, craftsmanship, and comfort are the five things I typically look for in a new boot and the Vertigo 917 Gold Rush checks off all of those boxes. This can be worn on a 5-day camping trip through Yellowstone or on the streets of Manhattan with jeans. They’re 100% waterproof so they can and should be worn all year long in rough weather.
The name ‘Gold Rush’ is a nod to this Gold Ore colorway but it also pays homage to the frontiersman who settled San Francisco (where Huckberry is headquartered) in hopes of striking it rich by finding gold. There is a 100% waterproof GORE-TEX liner that’s breathable so you’re feet will stay dry even if they sweat but the rain and mud won’t get in.
The full-grain leather upper provides a classic leather boot look while adding waterproof protection and support. This shoe’s made with the modernized version of Danner’s world-renowned stitchdown construction.
Because this is a collaboration with Huckberry, you’ll find unique elements throughout the boot including a suede heel, Vibram gum sole, brown colorway, and Huckberry logo on the tongue. The Vibram 917 outsole featuring XS Trek rubber compound is built to maximize traction and durability in the wettest of conditions, on the streets or trails. The lightweight Vibram® SPE midsole provides support and comfort that’s unmatched.
