The Danner Shoe Manufacturing Company was founded in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsinin 1932. The company started out making low priced handcrafted work boots and is now one of the most well known and popular manufacturers of shoes and boots in the world. The company became well known throughout the years or making an ideal waterproof hiking boot. In 1994, Danner merged with LaCrosse Footwear, Inc. of La Crosse, Wisconsin, a company that was well known for its rubber and vinyl footwear. Today, Danner still continues to manufacture a complete line of hiking, fishing, hunting, uniform, and work boots out of their base in Portland, Oregon.
Danner's footwear products are designed to be rugged, durable, lightweight and comfortable. The boots are made to keep your feet warm and dry even after prolonged use in wet and cold weather conditions. These boots are ideal for outdoor workers such as farmers, loggers, shipyard workers, construction workers, ranchers, the military and police officers, etc.
Danner boots are made out of four types of material: Gore-Tex, Cordura, Thinsulate and Vibram. Gore-Tex acts like a skin membrane allowing body moisture and sweat to escape and stops outside water from entering the boots. Cordura, which is an air-textured, high tenacity nylon, gives durability and abrasion resistance. Thinsulate has twice the warmth of foam or pelt and retains body heat in microscopic pockets. Vibram soles are made for different applications such as: hunting, hiking, oil and flame resistance, etc.
Danner wholesales to specialty retail stores and mail order companies throughout the U.S., and has one company owned factory retail outlet. The company's international sales include Japan, England, Sweden, and Italy. The footwear is available in a variety of sizes, colors, designs and styles for both men and women.
