Due to launch October 1st of this year is a collaboration between two U.S. footwear giants; namely Danner and New Balance. Reflecting made-in-USA craftsmanship, the collection is set to feature the Danner x New Balance 585 MiUSA (crafted in New Balance’s Skowhegan, ME facility) and Danner x New Balance Danner Light boot (manufactured in Danner’s Portland, OR factory). The former is a classic outdoor trail shoe cut from premium quality materials including Horween leather and durable ballistic nylon with a veg tan leather lining. It’s mashed up with traditional boot laces and Danner lace lock system, finished with a co-branded leather insert.
The light boot, on the other hand, borrows the New Balance grey color palette and is crafted in grey suede, Horween leather and Cordura. This rugged utilitarian shoe utilizes a classic hiking boot design, has waterproof protection, and features Vibram outsole for comfort and durability. Proudly made in America the timeless collaboration looks to bring a truly disruptive collection to the market, and will no doubt pique the interests of urbanites and outdoors types alike.
