Not unlike vegans and CrossFitters, some technical hiking boots just can’t wait to let you know what they do. And that’s all well and good, but sometimes you want something a bit more… understated. You know, something you can wear around town without looking like you just came down off Pike’s Peak.
Enter Danner’s retro-styled Jag Boot, which almost looks like something you’d be more likely to encounter at the local skate park than the backwoods. And yet it still packs a technical punch, thanks to Danner Dry inserts that stand up to rain, a breathable mesh lining, comfy Ortholite footbed and grippy waffle sole. The combo of appearance and performance makes for a very versatile shoe — and one that’s hard to pass up when it’s $70 off at Backcountry. The only catch? The deal only applies to the Bark/Dusty Olive colorway shown above.
