Who should buy Danner Skyridge
Adventurers who prefer to hike in style with a leather boot will find the Danner Skyridge a solid option. Purchase if:
- A hiking boot that can be used in urban settings is preferred
- You need a waterproof boot
- Lightness in a boot is a priority
Danner's outsole for the Skyridge
Danner’s Jadical outsole grants users traction not only on outdoor trails but also over urban surfaces, thanks to its low-profile triangular lugs. Its forefoot and heel zones have ample grooves to assist wearers during ascents and descents.
The boot has a sturdy toe bumper thanks to the rubber outsole’s forefoot extension. A similar extension is also found at the heel and arch zones to further reinforce and protect the sole unit.
Shock-resistant and protective cushioning
Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) is what the Skyridge’s midsole is made of, and that which grants this component its stress, abrasion, and water resistance. These basic qualities make the midsole cushy and protective at the same time.
Contributing to the boot’s comfort level is the Ortholite footbed. It is made of open-cell polyurethane for breathability and heat dispersion.
The Danner Skyridge's durable, waterproof upper
The Danner Skyridge houses the foot in a part suede, part cotton ripstop upper. This combination of materials makes the upper both comfortable and adequately sturdy.
Its interior is engineered with Danner Dry—a technology that gives the boot a level of water protection. The fairly straightforward lace-up closure of the boot features synthetic laces and a combination of regular eyelets and open hooks.
