Who should buy the Danner Mountain Pass
A city-to-trail boot, the Mountain Pass redefines spontaneous explorations with its engineering ingenuity. This stunner from Danner is for you if:
- You're into comfy leather boots, particularly the seamless kind.
- You're after boots that you can wear besides hiking (think bar night outs and backyard picnics) and not stick out like a sore thumb.
- You need a hiker that lasts for years and ages like fine wine.
Who should not buy it
If cushioning underfoot is a big deal to you, look in the direction of the Mountain 600 instead. You might also want to consider the budget-friendlier Danner 453 if you find the Mountain Pass too pricey.
Jaw-dropping both inside and out
Reviewers in droves, including professional critics, adore the Mountain Pass' regal looks and extraordinary plushness.
Loosens up quickly
Hikers say that this remarkable Danner boot requires no break-in time at all.
The Danner Mountain Pass' un-clunky shell
Despite its labeled weight of around 600 g per kick, this hiker from Danner has received great ratings from shoe critics for being incredibly light.
It knows no moisture
Testers are quite amazed at the dependable waterproofing of this Danner hiker. Even in a heavy downpour, their feet stayed dry.
The Mountain Pass' ho-hum insole
An experienced vlogger finds the boot’s footbed too plain and uninspiring. He recommends replacing it quickly with a cushier, more supportive pair of orthotics.
Tough as a pack mule
An expert is quite impressed with the Mountain Pass for its remarkable durability. Its almost bombproof outsole is a testament to this.
An exemplar of roominess
Adventurers feel right at home with the boot's default wide fit. Indeed, restrictiveness is a non-factor in this hiker, particularly around the instep and forefoot.
The Mountain Pass' interesting variants
This super-dapper town-to-trail hiker from Danner comes in two other distinct models. There's the Gunmetal variant, which trades the shine of nubuck leather for something more velvety. Completing the pair is the Arctic Night 200G colorway, which, as its name suggests, is the ideal variant for winter escapades.
