Comfortable cushioning and stability

This mid-top winter hiking boot uses a Vibram SPE midsole made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). It is designed to give cushioning and stability without easily breaking down. The midsole is paired with a nylon shank which makes the gear more rigid and resistant to contortion.

Excellent arch support

The Mountain 600 Weatherized is equipped with a removable Ortholite footbed. It has three layers (with different densities) to further improve the boot’s cushioning properties. The footbed’s open-cell polyurethane construction enhances air circulation. Also, this component grants adequate support to the foot’s arch.

Waterproof yet breathable

The Danner Mountain 600 Weatherized’s overall look and sturdiness comes mainly from its full-grain leather upper.
