Product Preview: Danner Mountain 600 Enduroweave Boots

posted on August 16, 2018

Good hiking boots are essential for sportsmen who venture afield, and those who range farther put a premium on lightweight and durable construction. Danner’s Mountain 600 hiking boots enjoy a great reputation for comfort and support, whether in town or on the trail, and combine proven components such as OrthoLite footbeds, Vibram’s SPE midsoles, Fuga outsoles and Danner’s breathable, moisture-wicking linings. The new Enduroweave 4.5" boots evolve the design and shave ounces by utilizing a tough, tightly woven, carbon-washed textile upper (Enduroweave) in place of leather, and pair it with an Air Mesh liner to maximize comfort and air flow. The boots are available in black or brown, in men’s sizes 8 through 14, with half sizes available up to 11.5, and each pair weighs approximately 34 ozs. Price: $160.
