Portland Select Mountain Trail 90th Anniversary
Danner Boots' Portland Select line is a USA made collection for the modern explorer. For nearly a century, Danner has crafted boots with purpose and integrity - footwear to equip those who choose the unlikely path, those who cut fresh trails, those who pioneer. Their Portland Select offerings are as traditonally well-crafted, functionally purpose-built, and as premium Americana as Danner gets.
Danner Portland Select was specifically created for the worker, the entrepreneur and the modern explorer — those who share the spirit of craftsmanship and adventure that brought Charles Danner westward to Oregon in 1932. Made in USA, as they have been for nearly 90 years, from premium full-grain leather, waterproof GORE-TEX liners and rugged Vibram® outsoles, these boots are built for those who log the hours, in the workshop or on the trails of the Cascades and beyond.
In honor of Danner's 90th anniversary, they have updated the iconic Mountain Trail with premium materials. The Mountain Trail was called one of the best hiking boots ever made by Backpacker magazine when it was first introduced in the '60s. This version is made with Horween Chromexcel® leather, legendary for its quality and finish - the very same leather we use for our custom Brooklyn x Viberg Service Boots! The Vibram® Roccia outsole has the same tread pattern as the original Mountain Trail, but is much lighter in weight thanks to Vibram® Newflex technology. It also features a leather lining for added comfort and a seamless mold to your foot, and Danner's original retro one-piece upper to keep the elements out.
Chromexcel leather is produced by the family-owned Horween tannery in Chicago, using time-honored techniques and formulas that were developed nearly 100 years ago. Chromexcel is comfortable, durable and develops a beautiful worn-in look over time, we consider it one of the best casual leathers available. This natural leather treatment provides a slightly unique aesthetic for each hide, which may result in some variation amongst pairs of boots. On any boot that uses Horween Chromexcel leathers, you may see a slight amount of blooming, which is a natural characteristic of that type of leather.
Handcrafted to provide a wider platform, Danner's legendary stitchdown construction offers increased stability underfoot, as well as being a rebuildable construction method - Danner, as well as many cobblers, are able to resole the boots when needed, extending their lifetimes exponentially and making them lifetime boots with proper care.
This EE width is designed to fit an average width foot, similar to a D width. The 650 EE last offers a more relaxed fit for casual, everyday wear while still offering support and stability. Since this style runs a little long, we recommend sizing down a half size for the best fit.
