Flag Hatchet-Approved Footwear: Danner Boots Aug 17, 2012

Before it was hip to wear work boots to the local coffee shop or bar, Danner was making boots in Portland for loggers and contractors. Since 1932, their Made in the USA boot line is ever-expanding. The new Stumptown line mixes a bit of style in with their rugged aesthetic. I got to tour the Danner facilities the other day and it was absolutely insane to see footwear go from a hide to the final product.

I’m way behind on processing photos and developing film, so expect an update shortly.

    Back then, Danner was in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Manufactured backstory much?
