Danner Vertigo 917 Review: The Comfiest Leather Boot Yet?

DATE : February 19, 2019

One of Danner’s mountain-to-town leather boots, the Danner Vertigo 917 uses a mix of modern midsole materials, elastic cuffs, and classic leather stylings. We wore the Danner 917 leather boots for a month for this review.
“Ooh, I like the Huckberry Danners!” The exclamation took me by surprise at the recent Outdoor Retailer trade show this past month. A gentleman pointed to my shoes. Evidently, I was wearing more sought-after boots than I had thought.
The boot in question — the product of a brand collaboration between Danner and Huckberry — is the Vertigo 917, officially dubbed the “Gold Rush.” The improvements aren’t too functional; they’re mostly style related.

Field Test: 2019 Mathews Vertix Compound Bow Review

Like the Triax, the Vertix boasts Mathews’ noise- and vibration-killing 3D Damping Technology. The rig also has Crosscentric Cam Technology, which promises a smooth draw, pinpoint accuracy, and speeds up to 343 fps.
