In 1979, Danner released the iconic Danner Light hiking boot—the first boot on the market to use waterproof GORE-TEX liners. In the early 1980s, the original Feather Light hit the market. Continuing this evolution, the new Feather Light 917 combines waterproof technology with an exclusive lightweight Vibram outsole for extra stability and urban performance – part of the next generation of premium Danner boots built for the urban explorer.
