New Balance is hooking up with premier boot manufacturer, Danner, to release an upcoming “American Pioneer Project” Collection that will be debuting on October 1st.
The collection is a celebration of two authentic American brands, on opposing coasts, creating two premium, domestically manufactured models that represent the spirit of American craftsmanship, heritage and quality.
The Danner x New Balance 585 was crafted in New Balance’s Skowhegan, ME manufacturing facility with premium materials and traditional shoemaking expertise. The classic outdoor trail silhouette is done in Horween leather and durable ballistic nylon that lends itself to outdoor adventures. The upper also includes veg tan leather lining and parts of the ‘N’ logo. The style is finished with a traditional boot lace, Danner lace lock and co-branded leather insert.
The Danner x New Balance Danner Light Boot borrows the New Balance grey color palette to offer an upper done in grey suede, Horween leather and Cordura. A classic hiking design, the style is manufactured in Danner’s Portland, OR factory and has been dubbed the standard for performance, rugged durability, waterproof protection and craftmanship. Special additions inspired by New Balance silhouettes include a leather piece on the heel mimicking a CR Device and a reflective underlay on the collar. Additional details include a Vibram outsole for comfort and durability, New Balance branded lace lock, co-branded embossing on the tongue and a reflective flecked lace.
Check out the detailed images below and look for the Danner x New Balance Collection to release on October 1st at Danner stores and select New Balance retailers. The Danner New Balance 585 retailing for $365 USD. The New Balance Danner Light Boost retails for $430 USD.
