Like many of the outfit’s hiking boots, the Danner Mountain 600 is built to thrive in the climate and terrain of the Pacific Northwest. Unlike them, it comes with an all-new midsole and outsole combo that takes the footwear’s performance to a whole new level.
Billed as a pair of boots that “bridges classic style with modern performance,” it’s the first shoe to use VIbram’s all-new SPE midsole, which is made from a unique blend of natural rubber, synthetic rubber, and EVA. The outfit claims it delivers rebound and support that’s unlike any hiking boot you’ve worn before, ensuring it will keep you comfortable whether on short hikes or long expeditions.
The Danner Mountain 600 pairs that midsole with a Vibram Fuga outsole, which boasts self-adapting lugs and the vaunted MegaGrip compound for excellent traction even in the wettest conditions. Built to withstand the rainy season, it gets a suede upper that’s reinforced with Danner Dry lining to keep water from getting in the shoes, along with a snug-fitting, moisture-wicking collar to help keep your feet cool throughout the hike. It’s cut in the outfit’s DPDX profile, making it ideal for everyday wear, whether in the city or in the mountains.
Features include an OrthoLite footbed for cushioning, a TPU heel frame for stability, and a nylon shank. It has a height of 4.5 inches.
Available in three colorways, the Danner Mountain 600 is priced at $180.
