Key Features


Well built, sturdy, and waterproof, the Danner Mountain 600's are designed for versatility and durability. They are, without doubt, a hiking boot made to take on the trail but equally can be used as an everyday boot with jeans. The rubberized EVA Midsole gives a good cushioning to the foot and the outsole adds mega grip on both wet and dry ground.

The eyelets are designed for secure and firm lacing, which continue up the shaft to provide extra support along the ankle.


The suede uppers add a nice look to the boot and the Danner Dry provides a waterproof barrier. The 4.5-inch height can be both a hindrance and an advantage. The low body around the ankle can be a benefit to anyone who has a more protruding ankle bone and can be a better fit for people with larger calves. The height however offers less support to the heel. The Danner Mountain 600 are quite low at the back compared to other boots of a similar caliber.

The Vibram midsole delivers great comfort and flexibility, as well as the EVA midsole offering resilience, durability, and cushioning, all whilst being delightfully lightweight. Mega grip technology means there will be no slips on wet terrain, and you can rely on these boots to keep you on your feet.

What is great about this boot is that you have the option to chose whether you’d prefer it in a suede or leather finish, as there are multiple choices.

Suede can be a material that holds water so the weight of the boot could increase given a lot of water intake. Leather does not. It's a personal choice, one that only the person wearing the boots can make; nevertheless, it's nice to have a choice.


You’re looking at a brand of boots that have a reputation for being a long-standing heritage brand. They are made for hardy terrain to go that extra mile and built to last. Naturally, the price will reflect this.

For the quality material used, the choice in style, and the warranty, I would have to say, these boots are priced fairly. It's common knowledge that any good, quality walking boot will have a price tag with it.


The Danner brand is well known for creating boots that are, as I said above, built to last. The Vibram midsole provides comfort, so lengthier journeys are not to be concerned about. The MegaGrip and Vibram Fuga outsole mean no terrain is untouchable and the specially chosen suede, along with minimal seam and Danner Dry lining, ensures these bad boys will withstand.

Comparison to Other Hiking Shoes and Boots

The Danner Mountain 600’s is a lovely boot; they are fit for purpose and an ideal boot for any long hike. Should you wish to shop around, let me suggest having a look at Mountain Warehouse Excalibur Vibram waterproof boots, similar in price to the Danner Mountain 600’s. They boast a Vibram sole and a waterproof exterior, they also have a mesh lining providing ventilation.

If you are looking for cheap and cheerful boots, then the Brown Oak waterproof lightweight boots may be more up your street. They offer great support and comfort with mesh lining for breathability. They have a slip-resistant outsole and like the Danner Mountain 600's and the Mountain Warehouse Excalibur's, they are also waterproof.


Well if you are looking for a reliable, sturdy, tough, stylish, and durable boot, then the Danner Mountain 600's are a viable option. However, having looked at other boots which have the same features, I honestly think that other options on the market can offer you the same quality for a lot lower price.

Yes, there is no denying that Danner is a fabulous brand and there is nothing wrong with this boot, the cons I have mentioned are purely my preferences but to level with you, this boot is a strong contender on the market.

To sum it up: the price is high, quality is great, the brand is superb.
