UPDATE: It's one thing to see this trail blazing colab in studio shots, but seeing them in the wild adds a whole new dimension. Both the NB585 and Danner Light Pioneer are taken for a trot across American terrain to parade them before their October 1 release. If you're looking to pick up, you can do so from New Balance Experience stores and Danner online.
If you really want to rep your American made goods with pride, then look no further than the Danner x New Balance ‘American Pioneer’ collection. It’s like some kind of footwear Freaky Friday, with two iconic outdoor models swapping bodies – or at least trading outfits for the day. New Balance’s 585 has been decked out in tan leather, rugged nylon and round bootlaces, while the Danner Light Pioneer is been built up in classic NB style, grey with a speckled sole. Both have been crafted in the US with top quality materials and years of expertise from two certified footwear legends. Whether you’re hiking up the Matterhorn or your pounding the trails, they’ve got what you need.
The Danner x New Balance ‘American Pioneer’ Collection will be available from October 1 at select stockists.
