Danner has been manufacturing boots in the U.S. since the 1930s, and it struck a real chord in 1979 when it first introduced the Mountain Light—an iconic hiking boot among hardcore hikers and, until recently, an artifact of a bygone era. But Danner has re-released the boot—handmade in the same Portland plant that turned out the originals. While the new Mountain Light retains its full-grain leather construction, it gets updated with a Vibram sole and Gore-Tex liner to bring it into the 21st century.
