The shoe used for the collaboration is the classic “Danner light” model. This model uses special leather, which is saturated with oils and waxes which will give it a distinctive look as it ages. The boot screams badass and quality all over. From the vintage brass eyelets to the Vibram Gumlite soles. The other bloggers have probably failed to explain this, if this too technical for you let me break it down. Vibram Gumlite sole is the ideal sole if you're looking for comfort, durability, and grip. This sole absorbs vibrations from the impact of walking. Gumlite has the same wear characteristics as rubber yet half the weight. It’s also slip resistant on wet surfaces and cold temperatures. But wait this boot has more good, GORE-TEX lining was also added to the guarantee dryness making this boot impermeable to water. This translates this is a great boot to wear during hunting or hiking. Coolness was added to this classic silhouette from Danner with Ball and Buck’s signature camouflage 10 Oz duck cloth flanks added on the sides. Duck canvas is a heavy duty canvas for example; Filson bags are made from the same material to give you a better picture. The boot can be resoled, making this boot a great investment.
