New Balance and boot brand Danner is connecting on an upcoming collaboration being called the ‘American Pioneer Project’.
The collection celebrates two authentic American brands, on opposite coasts, creating two premium, domestically-manufactured models that represent the spirit of American craftmanship, heritage and quality.
The Danner x New Balance 585 was crafted in New Balance’s Skowhegan, ME manufacturing facility with premium materials and traditional shoemaking expertise. The classic outdoor trail silhouette is done in Horween leather and durable ballistic nylon that lends itself to outdoor adventures. The upper also includes veg tan leather lining and parts of the ‘N’ logo. The style is finished with a traditional boot lace, Danner lace lock and co-branded leather insert.
The Danner x New Balance Danner Light Boot borrows the New Balance grey color palette to offer an upper done in grey suede, Horween leather and Cordura. A classic hiking design, the style is manufactured in Danner’s Portland, OR factory and has been dubbed the standard for performance, rugged durability, waterproof protection and craftmanship. Special additions inspired by New Balance silhouettes include a leather piece on the heel mimicking a CR Device and a reflective underlay on the collar. Additional details include a Vibram outsole for comfort and durability, New Balance branded lace lock, co-branded embossing on the tongue and a reflective flecked lace.
Below you can check out the entire Danner x New Balance collection that will debut on October 1st at Danner locations and select New Balance retail stores. Retail price for the Danner x New Balance 585 is $365 while the Danner x New Balance Danner Light Boot will cost you $430.
