Danner South Rim 600’s Vibram Fuga outsole
For surface traction, Danner’s South Rim 600 sports a Vibram outsole called Fuga. It is based on Vibram’s Megagrip compound, granting it a kind of grip that works on various types of surfaces, may they be slippery wet or bone dry.
Its durable triangular lugs are formed into a geometry that provides multi-directional traction.
Danner equipped South Rim 600 with a durable Vibram SPE midsole
The South Rim 600 gets to stabilize the user’s footing on bumpy trails thanks to its cushy Vibram SPE midsole. It is made of a special kind of rubberized EVA that offers improved comfort and enhanced rebound. A nylon shank is placed within its interiors, reinforcing its medial zone for more arch support.
Working alongside the midsole unit in delivering comfort underfoot is the boot’s Ortholite footbed. This cushioned component is made entirely of open-cell polyurethane—a type of material that has heat-mitigating properties.
Part nylon, part leather upper of Danner’s South Rim 600
Danner engineers gave the South Rim 600 a part nylon, part suede leather upper to grant hikers a blend of comfort and protection on the trail. Its inner liner is made of air mesh fabric which promotes the boot’s overall breathability.
Making up its speed lacing system are synthetic laces as well as D-rings and open hooks made of metal. The gear’s tongue has multiple lace keepers, allowing for a firmer hold on both the laces and the tongue.
