Danner’s new American-made Crater Rim trail boot is all you’d want in an all-round hiker: a tough, high-traction Vibram outsole; full-wrap Vibram rand for protection against scuffing and mud; classic styling with a Nubuc leather upper; Gore-Tex lining; soft fit with little break-in required. Troops in Afghanistan loved it, Outside gave it a Gear of the Year Award, and we agree: It’ll be your recipient’s versatile footwear centerpiece for years.
