Danner doesn’t mess around when it comes to boots, plain and simple. So when they release a new model, you can bet it’s going to be something worth the price. Case in point, the all new Gridstone, a delicate balance of hard-wearing construction and made for the outdoors styling. Based off the legendary Quarry boot, it features a replaced steel shank, heavy-duty midsole, and lasting board with a single integrated Bi-Fit shank system.
The new construction of the boot provides support and protection underfoot while offering cushioning and stability throughout the heel and flexibility in the forefoot, and also reduces weight. It also sports durable, waterproof, full-grain leather and triple stitching. The combination provides a superior fit and better protection overall. Using their signature stitchdown construction to give the Gritstone the strength and stability, you’ll be ready for any uneven surfaces and terrain.
Finally, the Gridstone was given a collaborative Vibram outsole. It uses an oil-and-slip resistant rubber paired with a tread design similar to an all-weather car tire. It quickly releases any debris you might pick up and avoids hydroplaning on slick days. And knowing the job doesn’t stop just because the weather turns, its been finished off with waterproof protection via the inner lining.
