Urban Styling for Urban Adventures

  • Looks like streetwear, feels like hiking boots 
  • Extremely comfortable for long walks
  • Rain proof - Goretex liners
  • Highly Technical Vibram SPE Midsole for added support & comfort

  • Tokyo, Bangkok, Rome or Montreal - these are the boots you need for exploring exciting mega-cities around the world.  With subways, museums and malls, urban hiking through the concrete jungle can be just as strenuous as the wilderness these days - how often have you gone exploring in a new city, and before you know it you've walked 15-20kms for the whole day?  

    We tend to underestimate city adventures, and we pay for it with blisters, sore feet and discomfort.  That's why Danner have come up with the solution - a pair of urban boots based on their 70+ years of hiking design principles, but tailored stylistically for urban exploration. 


      Drawing on decades of experience designing premium hiking boots, Danner originally created the Vertigo boot in 2009. The Vertigo 917 combines classic styling and innovation in a new, modernized boot. The technical Vibram® midsole and outsole, full-grain leather upper and waterproof GORE-TEX® liner make the Vertigo 917 the ideal boot for the urban explorer.


      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.


      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.


      This rubberized EVA midsole maintains the same cushioning properties as traditional EVA, but is more durable and won’t break down as easily. This technology enhances rebound, comfort and support.


      Exclusive outsole for Danner featuring XS Trek rubber compound for an optimal balance of durability and traction in wet conditions on the trail or city streets.


      Combines our traditional stitchdown technique with cup sole construction that allows the boot to keep a wider platform while eliminating the need for a buffed sidewall. This gives our sneaker boots a modern aesthetic and lightweight, flexible finish.

      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.


      This boot is built on a new great-fitting, ergonomic last based on our existing 971. It's true to size with more of a gentleman's boot fit updated with added footbed allowance for stability and greater underfoot support. It's easy to wear and comfortable for use in a variety of casual environments.

      "You don't put on a pair of Danner boots to sit around the house.  They're made for adventure, exploration and the hard work the men and women who wear them perform day in and day out."

      From Portland, Oregon.  Since 1932.

      For nearly a century, Danner has crafted boots with purpose and integrity - footwear to equip those who choose the unlikely path, those who cut fresh trails, those who pioneer.

      Charles Danner came west to build the best boots loggers had ever known, an effort that resulted in a long-standing heritage brand with a renegade spirit. A spirit that proudly lives on in each pair of Danner boots we make to this day.

      Charles Danner felt the pull to the wild of the Pacific Northwest, drawn by the promise of opportunity in the rugged unknown. He came with a commitment to quality craftsmanship and a deep respect for the uncompromising landscape. From the gleaming alpine lakes and the plummeting river gorges, to the thick forests and the sweeping coastlines, Danner boots are of this place.
