The Caprine is unlike any other Danner shoe on the market. It uses modern styling, plenty of knit, and leather accents.
-A hiker styled for the city, the Danner Caprine combines Nubuck leather and textile to create a comfortable and breathable shoe. It's equipped with a Vibram outsole that is specifically designed to provide superior traction in urban trails and beyond.
-This shoe also comes with the Plyolite EVA midsole for long-distance cushioning, an OrthoLite footbed for added comfort, and a nylon shank for lightweight support.
The Danner Capri is a mid-top boot with a foot-hugging knit upper. The collar, tongue, and top portion of the midfoot are made of knitted fabric which creates a sock-like feel. Additionally, it has a traditional lace-up closure featuring robust round laces and metal eyelets for a secure fit.
For this specific shoe, Danner has partnered with Vibram to create a durable outsole that matches trail and urban environments. Featuring a large surface area, this boot promises great traction on concrete paths, hard and rocky terrain, and even slippery roads. It contains the Megagrip compound which is a very sticky rubber that works on both wet and dry surfaces. The lugs in the heel have a parabolic shape that mimics the toe of a goat hoof. This design is intended to provide strength and stability for independent movement from each side of the heel.
For a comfortable and supportive stride, this shoe uses the Plyolite EVA midsole. It delivers long-lasting underfoot protection without the added bulk. Additionally, the Caprine boot comes with an Ortholite footbed which is made of open-cell polyurethane that ensures breathability. This removable insole is also contoured to provide more foot support.
This boot also has a nylon shank that works by reducing the weight incurred by the wearer's weight while enhancing the structure and durability of the shoe.
The Caprine features a leather upper with abrasion-resistant woven textile for comfort fit and breathability. It features a clean, minimalist aesthetic design so it looks good whether you dress it up or down. The shaft height of this boot extends up to the ankle and the knit collar creates a snug fit around it.
This model doesn't have a waterproof membrane so it stays breathable even in hot summer days. Completing its upper is a traditional lace-up closure for a secure fit that can easily be adjusted anytime needed.
-The Danner Caprine also comes in a low-top version.
