The Red and the Black: Topo Designs X Danner Boots Collab Arrives

Image used with permission by copyright holder

The Pacific Northwest’s favorite boot company has teamed up with the unmistakable design brand for the latest boot and pack collaboration: Topo Designs X Danner Boots.

The combination of Topo Designs’ aesthetic and manufacturing know-how with the heritage-status and quality craftsmanship of Danner Boots has resulted in this uber-handsome pairing of Danner’s Mountain Light boots and Topo Designs’ classic Daypack. Both limited-edition pieces — available now — are clad in a black and red color palette with contrasting cream accents.

Topo Designs X Danner Mountain Light Boot – $390

Handcrafted with Horween leather, a 100-percent waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX liner, and a Virbam Sierra Outsole, Danner’s Classic Mountain Light boot is ready to tackle wet weather, whether it be on the Pacific Crest Trail or the pavement in the city. The Vibram outsole offers superb traction in slick conditions, and the GORE-TEX liner affords warmth without working up a sweat. The boot’s supple black leather is offset by the red-fleck paracord laces and the cream-colored sole. These boots will look great with anything from a pair of black jeans and a sweater to a pair of chinos and a parka. And to top it all off? They’re made in the good ole US of A.

Topo Designs X Danner Daypack – $189

Taking Topo’s design sense and combing it with Horween leather accents on a 12 oz cotton canvas (flecked with the same red paracord, as withthe boots’ laces), the classic Daypack is as welcome in the urban jungle as it is in a real one. Made with heavy-duty hardware to stand up to daily punishment and contoured and padded shoulder straps for extra comfort, the Topo Designs X Danner Daypack is truly an excellent piece of everyday-carry equipment. Oh, it also fits a 15-inch laptop in its own sleeve, has an interior organizer pocket, and is hand-made in Colorado.

This limited edition collaboration won’t be available for long, so if either of these strike your sartorial fancy, get them now.

watch saves man who fell overboard islands surrounded by boats

We talk a lot about the importance of wearing a watch. It is an elegant way to show class and sophistication. Since World War II, they have been the go-to men's accessories. While women wear everything from bracelets to rings, necklaces to earrings, men keep it simple, and many of us opt for a watch. But a watch can be more than just an elegant piece of jewelry; it can be a tool, something you can use to get the job done. And in one very interesting instance, something that can save your life.

Cambridge 61-year-old Will Fransen embarked on a fishing trip off the coast near the Alderman Islands, and it turned into a nightmare. After snagging what he expected was a marlin, Fransen fell overboard. As they do, the boat starts to drift away from him, and he soon realizes that he isn't going to be able to catch it. Finding he was thirty nautical miles away from the shore and without his forty-foot boat, Fransen found himself in the middle of a real-life horror movie.
