Made in Danner's Portland, Oregon, factory, the Mountain Pass was created to be a lighter weight and more versatile hiking boot that still reflects the classic Danner styling. Built with light hikes and city streets in mind, the overall design is inspired by the original Mountain Light with an updated construction method that integrates the shank, midsole and lasting board into a single piece. This new, unified platform, combined with a low profile Vibram outsole, allowed Danner to significantly reduce weight and create an out-of-the-box comfort that doesn't come standard with most classic hiking boots.
FULL-GRAIN LEATHER UPPER: To ensure its quality, we put our leather through six different tests before making our selection. Our full-grain leathers are the strongest and most durable form of leather.
GORE-TEX (GTX): 100% waterproof and breathable, GORE-TEX liners ensure that no water gets in, while allowing sweat and moisture to get out.
REMOVABLE ORTHOLITE FOOTBED: Three layers of varying density are combined for maximum cushioning and support. The entire footbed is made of open-cell polyurethane for better heat dissipation and air circulation.
BI FIT BOARD: By combining the shank, lasting board, and midsole into a single unified piece that is molded to match the shape and contours of our boots, we were able to reduce a significant amount of weight from the boot without sacrificing support.
VIBRAM® KLETTERLIFT THIN OUTSOLE: Specifically designed for comfort and durability for everyday use, while reducing height and weight from the traditional Kletterlift outsole.
STITCHDOWN CONSTRUCTION: Handcrafted to provide a wider platform, our legendary stitchdown construction offers increased stability underfoot. Many of our stitchdown boots can be recrafted.
HOW IT FITS: Portland made 503 last has a casual fit without compromising Danner's comfortable lace-to-toe construction. Fits true to size.
RECRAFTABLE: Extend the life of your boot with Dann'ers recrafting services. Please note they are unable to replace the liner on this style due to the more technical construction of the lightweight Bi-Fit board. This boot is eligible for a boot stretch, basic and resole packages.
