A Versatile Travel Shoe That You Can Wear Anywhere

  • Fully functional hiking shoe without the bulk!
  • Perfect for warmer climates, or when you don't want to wear boots + shorts
  • Excellent Structure, Stability and Grip via Trailguard TPU shank, EXO Heel System and Vibram 460 Soles
  • Lightweight (680g), easy to travel with 

Like our Mountain Light or Vertigo boots but unsure about the bulk?  We understand.  Sometimes you want the functionality, but find it hard to wear boots all the time.  Maybe you're travelling somewhere tropical or warmer, or maybe you'll be wearing shorts most of the time and don't want to do the boots + shorts look,.

Of the three Danner boots we carry, this is the lightest and most casual version.  If the Mountain Light is the "4WD-everything-boot" and the Vertigo is the refined "urban-style" boot, then the Trail 2650 is the hiking shoe disguised as a sneaker (or sneaker that works as a hiking shoe).

Yes, it's never going to be a fashion or running sneaker, but that's because it's a full-function hiking shoe that provides proper hiking stability for trail hiking.  It's the one you'd take with you on easy to mid active level type of adventures - think Mexico or India, where you're doing cultural trips most of the time but you expect to be out in the wilderness for a day hike or two.  It'll handle the day trails and hikes without any problems, and the lightness will keep you moving fast without slowing you down.

Then afterwards it's back in sneakers mode, and goes with jeans or shorts for a drink back in town without looking out of place.

Note:  These run a bit small so please order 1/2 size up from your normal US size.  I.e. - if you're normally US 9, order these in US 9.5 for the best fit.

 

With 2,650 miles, the Pacific Crest Trail provides a wide variety of terrain over its epic expanse. Whether you’re out for the weekend, a few miles or are looking to get some serious mileage, the PCT has something for you. It’s that need for versatility that inspired our Trail 2650. Built to move quickly and confidently through the terrain of your choosing, the Trail 2650 can easily fill the role of a lightweight hiker or trainer. Using a Trailguard TPU shank and an EXO Heel System, the Trail 2650 is both lightweight and provides stability on challenging grounds.

NO NEED TO COMPROMISE

For the Trail 2650, we wanted to bring you a lightweight option that still adheres to our strict durability benchmarks. This meant looking to lightweight materials that could withstand the demands of the trail. We use an ultra-lightweight EVA foam midsole to provide the cushioning you need while minimizing weight. The midsole is formed around a TPU shank that guards your foot in uncertain terrain and provides torsional strength for stability. This process maximizes weight savings while maintaining protection, stability and durability. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

INNOVATIVE COMFORT

Stability is key. If your foot isn't secure, you increase opportunity for slippage and blisters. Preventing that from happening is the job of a heel counter — traditionally a rigid component inside your boot. While this method is effective at locking your heel in place, we knew we could do better. For the Trail 2650, we took the bold step of shifting the heel counter to the outside of the shoe. By using a softer material and moving it away from your foot, our EXO Heel System provides a secure fit and increased comfort. In addition, we developed a new last with 8mm of heel drop and a wider forefoot for greater stability. Small changes for a big difference.

EXPLORE CONFIDENTLY

When the day’s plan calls for moving far and fast, you want to be prepared for whatever weather you may encounter. Versatile gear is key, and footwear is no exception. That's why the Trail 2650 is available with a lightweight mesh lining or a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX option. With comfortable feet, you can focus on the day's hike without distraction.

TRUST EACH STEP

Working with the leaders in high performance soling we looked to Vibram’s 460 outsole with deep, multi-directional lugs for confidence-inspiring grip in a wide variety of terrain. Couple this with Vibram’s legendary Megagrip rubber compound for enhanced traction in every step, whether wet or dry.

So if you're normally size US 9 / EUR 42, order these in size 9.5.

Official

"Our footwear products are sized according to the Brannock device and are in US sizes. If you are unsure of your size, we suggest getting your foot measured on this device as it will indicate both the length and width of your foot. The Brannock device can be found at most shoe or boot retail stores."

How it Fits

Inspired from trail running, the DT6 last features an 8mm offset from heel to toe with slightly more width in the forefoot for stability and a good-looking, everyday-wearable aesthetic.
