A boot first. A sneaker second.
We didn’t get our chops building athletic shoes. We make boots. So when we decided to create a lightweight trainer, we took our 80-plus years of experience and created a boot that acts like a shoe, not a shoe that acts like a boot. We recommend women select 1.5 to 2 full sizes down for correct fit.
Rough Out Leather & 1000 Denier Nylon Upper
Our rough-out, full-grain leather upper is legendary for its durability. We pair it with 1000 Denier nylon for superior protection.
Open Cell Polyurethane Footbed
Our polyurethane footbed provides superior shock absorption with an additional layer of open cell construction for improved air circulation.
Known for its lightweight properties, EVA is a special polymer that provides excellent cushioning.
Danner Tachyon Outsole
100% rubber for superior abrasion resistance and pentagonal lugs for maximum surface contact.
To accommodate more people, we’ve made this boot in extended sizes. We recommend women select 1.5 to 2 full sizes down for correct fit.
How It Fits
The DLE-01 last was designed to be an extension of the foot with superior forefoot and heel capture, stability and a more anatomical shape for comfort. The additional space in the toe box allows the foot to naturally react when bearing a heavy load or changing directions laterally in high intensity environments.
