Danner debuts its latest partnership with Vancouver, BC based, wings+horns, a brand that has been combining classic designs with innovative fabrics since 2004. The boot, the Forest Heights II wings+horns, is made in Danner’s Portland, Ore. factory and is available now for purchase.
“We were inspired by the elements that both Portland and Vancouver endure throughout the year,” says Chris Wojnar, Director of Product Line Management for Danner. “We started with the Forest Heights II boot, added a premium outsole and made it waterproof for everyday use.”
The Forest Heights II wings+horns boot features a USA-made suede leather upper engineered with waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® lining to keep your feet dry and comfortable. Built with an Italian Livetech® outsole, the boot features Danner’s signature stitchdown construction which provides a wider platform for increased stability underfoot.
“It’s always great working with Danner because of our shared approach to quality and craftsmanship,” says Tung Vo, Creative Director at wings+horns. “For this collaboration we wanted to design a subtle boot with a refined silhouette, while retaining Danner’s classic functionality.”
The collaboration is limited to 475 pairs of boots, available at Danner’s Union Way store in Portland, wings+horns flagship store in Vancouver, danner.com, wingsandhorns.com and select retailers across North America.
Danner designs and manufactures a complete line of innovative, functional and performance footwear for experts in the work, duty, outdoor and lifestyle markets. Founded in 1932 in Chippewa Falls, Wisc. and relocating to Portland, Ore. in 1936, Danner maintains a commitment to craftsmanship and heritage.
