You might be tracking elk herds, surveying raptor populations, documenting native plants, or backpacking in a remote mountain range, but you'll be prepared for whaevert lies ahead when you're wearing the Danner Men's Mt. Adams Hiking Boots. Made in America, the Mt. Adams features a full-grain leather upper that wears well over time and is accented by an equally durable nylon tongue for comfort and flexibility during those high-mileage days in the mountains. For additional protection, Danner added a protective rubber toe cap to protect the leather from scuffs and scrapes when you're hiking rocky trails or bushwhacking through sections of downed timber. A PU midsole keeps the Mt. Adams stiff and supportive, while a nylon shank bolsters support and durability. Danner put a sturdy Vibram sole at the base of the boot to ensure long-lasting performance when you're wearing your boots day in and day out, or counting on them to carry you through a week-long backpacking trip.
