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

topo designs x danner boots collab bootsandbaglifestyle

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.
