The Danner Light Timber Boot is a traditional hiking boot with a waxed canvas side to improve airflow and avoid the dreaded swamp-foot. All Danner footwear is made by hand in the USA and it’s been that way since 1932 when Charles Danner founded the company.
The Light Timber Boot has a Gore-Tex® liner, a full-grain leather upper, a Vibram® Gumlite outsole, a Danner® Airthotic® molded polyurethane instep and a flexible, glass-fibre shank.
