Portland Select Mountain Light Cascade Clovis
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.
Ask a seasoned backpacker what the ideal hiking boot looks like, and you're bound to hear a description of the Mountain Light. That's because for over 30 years, the Mountain Light set the standard for every new product that hit the market. And in all that time, nothing ever dethroned the original. Today, Danner is proud to re-introduce this classic boot. Every single pair is built by hand in Portland, Oregon with full-grain leather, Vibram Kletterlift outsoles, and waterproof GORE-TEX liners. The result is a classic design that provides unmatched comfort and support. As a truly purpose-built hiking boot made with heritage construction methods, the Portland Select Mountain Light trades a few of the traditionally all-leather materials for lighter weight, comfortable, and more breathable options in a few areas to ensure all-day functionality in the woods, on the pathways, and in the streets.
The Mountain Light Cascade Clovis features full-grain leather uppers for longevity, the strongest and most durable form of leather. The one-piece leather upper design eliminates openings to keep debris and water out. 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX liners ensure that no water gets in, while allowing sweat and moisture to get out. Specifically designed for comfort and durability, the Vibram® Kletterlift Outsole provides superb shock absorption and the rubber compound guarantees great traction and stability on both wet and dry surfaces.
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.
