Handmade in Portland the Crater Rim is the hardiest of boots that are built to last and take on brutal unforgiving Oregon’s terrain. Made to Danner’s well established traditional techniques but also thoughtfully designed to modern aesthetics ts unique styling utilises a waterproof nubuck set atop a thick Vibram Bifida outsole giving superior traction in rugged terrain. A deep Vibram rand runs around the shoe to stop scuffs and keep your feet warm and dry.
