When two makers of heritage-quality goods team up, you stop and take notice. That’s certainly the case with the fifth *(and newest) iteration of the partnership between West Coast lifestyle stalwart Tanner Goods and the folks behind some of the best hiking boots money can buy at Danner.
The two brands teamed up this season on the Mountain Pass Randolph, a special-edition shoe that merges the two brands’ remarkable attention to detail and quality craftsmanship. The boot makes use of a Horween Natural Essex Leather upper for durable style that should hold up well over time; plus, a water-resistant, breathable Dri-Lex lining makes this one shoe that merges functional details and rugged good looks. The boots are available online and in-store exclusively at Tanner Goods starting at noon Pacific Standard Time.
True to the little things that both brands stress, the boot is made in America using the best materials possible — particularly the Vibram Christy outsole. The red laces and iconic Danner boot silhouette make this one pair of shoes that’ll make it through both the rough-and-tumble of a trail hike and the rough-and-tumble of a day spent trekking around the city.
Known for its high-quality leather goods — particularly its belts and wallets — Tanner Goods is among a number of companies (Danner included) pushing a strong commitment to quality and a distinct ethos of craftsmanship. This collaboration is but one further step in that, according to both brands.
The companies note that “the Mountain Pass Randolph is a testament to both brands’ commitment to their ongoing relationship forged in the heart of Oregon,” according to a statement on the partnership.
Past iterations of the partnership between the two brands have played off silhouettes like Danner’s Light McKenzie boot, and it seems each offering expands on what similar brands can do when working in tandem. That the boot drops just in time for the slush and snow fall & winter to really hit is all the more fitting.
Get your hands on the boots at Tanner Goods’ Web site and in-stores starting at 12 p.m. Pacific Standard Time today.
