Dressing like James Bond in the winter doesn’t mean putting on a three-piece suit underneath a puffy jacket. Instead, everyone’s favorite secret agent can rough it up in the style department just as well as any outdoorsman. His choice of cold weather hiking shoes? Based on stills from the movie Spectre, it’s the black Danner Mountain Light II, which, from this point forward, will likely be permanently rechristened as The Bond Boot.
Looking perfectly dapper draped on the feet of the long-running movie protagonist, the hiking boots feature a sleek and slender profile that offers a snug fit, enabling better stability and support for rugged outdoor activities. Whether you’re fighting bad guys in the dead of winter like 007 or just hiking a snow-covered mountain trail, this thing should perform up to task, all while looking worthy of a well-dressed superspy.
The Bond Boot is actually a stock Mountain Light II, so you get the same support, quality, and durability that Danner describes as “legendary.” It combines a one-piece full-grain leather upper and a breathable Gore-Tex liner to offer superior waterproof protection, complete with a stitchdown construction that provides a wider platform for better underfoot stability. Features include a half-length molded polyurethane instep that cups the heel to support the arch area of the foot, Vibram Kletterlift outsole for providing excellent traction and shock absorption, a lace-to-toe system to ensure a secure fit, a fiberglass shank, and a 5-inch height.
Available now, the Bond Boot is priced at $350.
