Danner Boots + Tent Canvas = All Terrain Sexy

Danner Boots has been keeping feet comfortable, protected, and stylish since 1932, but that doesn't mean they're not open to trying new things, like collaborating with Beckel, a canvas company famous for its tents. Made entirely in Portland, the Danner x Beckel boots ace the canvas/leather look as well as anything we've seen.

The canvas used is the same ten ounce duck that's used in tents and bags, tightly woven for increased water resistance.

Danner has lowered the classic Eurohiker-esque silhouette, which brings out the beefy Vibram Gumlite outsole.

Wear 'em 'til you wear 'em out. They're completely re-craftable when something goes wrong.
