Flexible and provides protection against outdoor elements

The Danner Radical 452 upper is made of a combination of nubuck leather and 1000 denier nylon. The former reinforces the areas that are more prone to wear while giving it a velvety finish. The latter renders a decent amount of flexibility and protection against outdoor elements. Also, an abrasion-resistant toe cap is added; it serves as a shield from rocks and other obstacles.

Breathable and waterproof

For a breathable and waterproof in-shoe feel, the brand’s designers lined it with a Gore-Tex laminate. It prevents water intrusion while allowing heat and moisture inside to escape. It employs metal eyelets and hooks for fit management. A lace keeper helps maintain the upright position of the tongue while the pull tab at the back assists in on and off.
