Danner Mountain Trail Left Bank: A New Take on a Familiar Boot


Two Portland, Oregon-based companies—Danner Boots, an outfit that has been dedicated to quality craftsmanship for more than 80 years, and Tanner Goods, a group of young designers and craftspeople—have collaborated on a new boot as part of Danner Stumptown’s collection.

Called the Mountain Trail Left Bank, the boot is named after the building that houses the Tanner Goods workshop in both brands’ native city.

Like all Danner Stumptown boots, the Mountain Trail Left Bank is 100 percent USA-crafted in Danner’s Portland factory. The boots are lined with leather, mirroring Danner’s original Mountain Light Trail design that dates back to the early 1970s. They feature authentic components and materials—rich Horween Chromexel leather from Chicago, gunmetal hardware, a contrast midsole and a Vibram Gumlite outsole. And each pair of boots comes with both cream and evergreen laces, and will ship with a special Tanner Goods key fob.

To celebrate their collaboration, Tanner and Danner worked with artist Adam Haynes to create a video that documents a trip to Oregon's Three Sisters Wilderness to test the boot.

As part of the launch, each customer that purchases a pair of Left Bank boots by October 19, 2012, will be entered into a drawing to win Haynes’ original artwork featured in the video. Available now, $350;
