Charles Danner came west to build the best boots loggers had ever known, an effort that resulted in a long-standing heritage brand with a renegade spirit. A spirit that proudly lives on in each pair of Danner boots we make to this day.
BUILT TO LAST To this day, our commitment to superior craftsmanship remains unchanged. We continue to craft high quality boots, using the best possible materials we can find, to create a product built to last.
Danner's 8-inch River Gripper wading boots are made of breathable nylon mesh and neoprene impregnated suede
Danner's 8-inch River Gripper wading boots are made of breathable nylon mesh and neoprene impregnated suede. They are constructed using a quality stichdown process wherein the upper is glued and stitched with heavy thread to the outsole, creating a strong, stable platform. They feature Danner's nylon felt fishing sole made of tight knit polyester plus a 3.2 mm rubber midsole.
The mesh material on the sides of each boot does a great job of draining water quickly, mitigating the awkward sloshing when hiking after exiting the stream. The felt soles provide good solid traction, including mud, moss, gravel, and rocks.
