Dominate Any Terrain with the Danner Trail 2650Release: 13 May 2021
Danner was founded in 1932 and still make indestructible boots in their Portland, Oregon factory for hard-working Americans. Proud traditionalists, Danner has a long history of industrial innovation, including a partnership with GORE-TEX that produced the first fully waterproof hiking boot in 1980. Recent colabs with Nigel Cabourn, New Balance, and NEIGHBORHOOD have raised the profile in sneaker circles, but as they fast approach their 90th anniversary, Danner are still firmly focused on their off-road operations. A 365-day warranty is the ultimate expression of their commitment to the cause.
Don’t be fooled by the orthodox red lace and brown suede combo, Danner’s Trail 2650 is packed with enough tech to tackle the bumpy 2650-mile Pacific Crest Trail. It’s solid as a rock underfoot but at 675 grams, the Trail 2650 is deceptively light, thanks to OrthoLite footbeds and EVA PlyoGo midsoles that jettison mass. An integrated midfoot shank keeps the ride responsive and adds torsional stability, while Danner’s inbuilt EXO Heel System keeps ankles secure on tricky terrain. Small changes make big differences.
The Trail 2650 Campo offers a cooler choice when the mercury rises, subbing out suede for a stretch-sock bootie cocooned in lightweight synth that doesn’t compromise durability or longevity. Breezy mesh and midfoot drainage ports enhance forest feels and should help trailhounds avoid the dreaded mid-hike musk. Danner DNA is shared with the Campo’s beefier brother, such as Vibram 460 outsoles and Megagrip rubber, which helps keep you upright in wet and dry conditions. Book ’em, Danner!
