Naked Ape's mission is to bring you the best quality products that are fit for purpose and built to last. Ever since the Danner shoe manufacturing company first started to trade in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin back in 1932 a Danner boot has been a benchmark of outstanding craftmanship and uncompromising quality. Charles Danner always believed that whatever the economy, superior quality materials and craftsmanship would in the long run offer the best value for money and ensure the longevity of the Danner brand. For over 80 years the determination of Danner toward building the best footwear product has never changed. Every pair of Danner boots exhibits an appreciable difference in the quality of materials used and the craftmanship employed.Their boots offer a marked difference in comfort and when you wear Danner boots, whether on the trail, mountain or at work that you will appreciate that Danner boots are truly built to give long service.
After achieving a great deal of mileage many Danner boots can be refurbished by replacing the outsole, and repairing the stitch seams and thereby extend their life further. An experienced craftsmen or women can refurbish your Danner boots from a simple resole and leather care to a major overhaul.
Danner have produced many classic hiking boots including the Danner Jag during the 1980’s. The Jag was a lightweight alternative to their heavy-duty hiking boots. This popular model became a favourite on the trail supporting many backpacks and complementing denim cut-offs worn by the style conscious hiker. Now after 30 years, Danner have reintroduced an updated and more versatile version of the Jag hiking boot. As at home and comfortable on the trail as it is around town, the Danner Jag incorporates durable, lightweight materials, a cushioning EVA midsole, and a new waffle outsole that is suited to a wide variety of terrain.
For a truly classic looking quality hiking boot look no further than like the Danner Mountain Light. With a traditional Norwegian welt construction the Danner Mountain Light has set the standard for hiking boots for over 30 years. In all that time, no hiking boot has ever surpassed this original classic design. Danner have recently reintroduced this classic hiking boot. Every pair is built by hand in Portland, Oregon with the highest quality full-grain leather, Vibram® Kletterlift outsoles, and waterproof GORE-TEX liners. The Danner Mountain Light is classic design that provides unrivalled comfort and support.
With a continuing commitment to quality, classic styling and lightweight innovation the introduction of the Mountain 600 represents a new category in Danner hiking boots which they call Performance Heritage which takes inspiration from decades of crafting legendary hiking boots. To create the Mountain 600, Danner have partnered with Vibram® to continue their innovation of hiking footwear. By combining a Vibram SPE midsole and Fuga outsole, the result gives unparalleled grip on both wet and dry surfaces while providing superior cushioning and a considerable weight saving. Designed to withstand the demanding climate and terrain of the Pacific Northwest, Danner have utilized a rugged, waterproof suede upper and Danner® Dry waterproof protection.
