Danner’s Feather Light Revival Boot Traces Their Steps Back to the Beginning


Danner’s history is rich and includes more than its fair share of first steps in the footwear world, such as the brand building a set of boots for an elephant. With the introduction of the Feather Light Revival, the brand pays homage to and celebrates their foray into fully waterproof footwear. Originally launched in the early 1980s, the Feather Light was among the brand’s first boots to utilize Gore-Tex liners. With this technology now a commonplace across many markets, Danner remembers their revolutionary steps towards keeping our feet dry with their Feather Light Revival Boot.

Constructed from contrasting panels of premium full-grain leather and 1000 Denier nylon, it’s a durable boot ready for any adventure. Whether you’re bracing the trail or stomping around the city, the Vibram Kletterlift outsole fitted to these boots will provide both traction and stability with each step.

Based in the Pacific Northwest, Danner is well versed in building footwear for wet and rainy conditions and the brand’s utilization of Gore-Tex was a pioneering step in satisfying the need for waterproof outdoor footwear. The Feather Light Revival is lined with a fully waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex membrane that will shield your feet from the elements.

Danner has been making boots in the USA for over eighty years and the Feather Light Revival steps in line with that. Each pair is proudly built in the brand’s Portland factory using premium materials and stitch down construction that allows the Feather Light Revival to be recrafted whenever necessary.

Finished with hook eyelets, a padded collar, and embossed Danner branding at the heel and tongue, the Feather Light Revival is available for $390 from Danner.
