American craftsmanship, heritage and quality come together with the Danner X New Balance Light Pioneer collaboration. When two heavy hitters like Danner and New Balance join forces you can expect nothing but premium execution of American manufacturing. The Light Pioneer Boot is based on Danner’s classic hiking boot design and borrows the New Balance grey-on-grey silhouette palette. Crafted in Danner’s Portland factory, the Light Pioneer is finished with grey suede and Horween leather panels that are paired with super durable Cordura. It features a fiberglass shank, speckled Vibram Kletterlift outsole and a 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX liner. Crafted to take on the toughest job, toughest conditions and designed to be recrafted for unlimited use.
