Danner Boots

Much of the content on this blog concentrates on craftsmen, or companies who strive for excellence through local fabrication and material sourcing. It’s not an easy feat, especially with the economic fluctuations but a few brands have maintained a strong Domestic presence. Danner is one of those companies. While a few models are made overseas, Danner’s maintained construction in the USA on many of their models, including military-issued boots, their new Stumptown line and various other hiking boots.

When I made plans to visit Portland, there were a few non-cycling brands I wanted to visit. Mostly to see how a product that we all use is made. Touring the Danner facilities really breaks that process down, from hide to hiking boot. See so for yourself below!

    Been wearing Danner for over 20 years. The sad truth is ever since they got bought out by Lacrosse their quality has taken a dump. Very few of their models have made in America until they started their Stumptown line two years ago which are basically just Danner Mountain Lights. I remember when Danner offered 1 year warranties, now your lucky if they last 6 months. I’ve attempted to buy their overseas models and every pair has failed within 45 days. If only we had the quality of yesteryear
