Updates to Danner Camp Sherman

  • The new Camp Sherman from Danner has a low-profile look that is created ready for the trails. Its upper—one with full-grain leather and one with suede—uses a breathable mesh lining to promote comfort and durability.
  • Underfoot, this lighweight hiking shoe features a Danner Plyolite midsole and a Vibram Approach outsole. Cushioning comes from the former while the latter delivers traction.

Size and fit

The Camp Sherman from Danner is a men’s hiking shoe which reasonably runs true to size. It is offered in full and half sizes. Additionally, it has standard and wide width options.

This trail hiker is shaped using the DPDX last. It has a low volume with enough room for toe spreading. This creates a propulsive stride.


Equipped with the Vibram Approach outsole, this low-cut day hiking shoe grips on most types of terrain. It has rhombus-shaped lugs which are topped with triangular studs to optimize its ground adhesion. Its medial side features a combination of shapes to render stability.


The Danner Plyolite midsole grants the Camp Sherman user a cushy ride. It works with a nylon shank which renders underfoot rigidity and provides stability on bumpy grounds. An Ortholite footbed sits atop this structure. Aside from its long-lasting cushioning, its open-cell PU construction manages moisture and promotes air circulation.


The Danner Camp Sherman is offered in two variants. One comes in a full-grain leather version, and the other one in suede. Both options are built with durability and flexibility in mind. Additionally, both styles have a mesh lining which promotes breathability.

Its lacing system uses a flat lace which goes through seven pairs of metal eyelets. Near the toe area is an extra webbing eyelet, and a lace keeper on the mid-tongue helps keep the tongue in place. A cushioned tongue and collar add comfort, and a heel pull tab assists in on and off.
