Explorer 650

in Brown/Green


The perfect evolution of a timeless classic

Danner has led the charge in outdoor footwear innovation for decades, so it’s no surprise they’re pushing the envelope once more. They’ve taken the iconic Danner Light (the first shoe ever to use Gore-Tex lining for waterproof protection) and upgraded it with the latest in high-quality performance tech, dubbing it the Explorer 650. Combining heritage style with updated features, the result is a lightweight, agile hiker. They’ve strategically replaced sections of leather with durable nylon, resulting in a lighter boot that requires less break-in time. The Vibram SPE midsole provides a durable, cushioning platform and the Vibram Megagrip outsole technology offers best-in-class traction for multiple types of terrain.
