Portland-based Danner and Filson, established in Seattle in 1897 to outfit prospectors headed for the Yukon, are lacing up together with a collaboration inspired by traditional Pacific Northwest hunting gear.
The limited-edition Filson x Danner Grouse boot took a signature hunting boot in the Danner line developed in the company’s Portland factory and added a Filson Tin Cloth upper. Tin Cloth is a thick cotton canvas coated in Filson’s proprietary oil-finish wax for protection from brush and rain. With full-grain leather, Gore-Tex lining, Danner’s stitchdown construction and a Vibram Sierra Outsole, the Filson x Danner Grouse boot is designed to be waterproof, rugged and durable.
Both companies have a longstanding history of outfitting outdoorsmen in the Pacific Northwest.
