Weekend Wish List: We Need This Rugged Sneaker-Boot Hybrid

There is a new, limited-edition sneaker-boot hybrid that is almost sold out, but we have found a solid alternative if you’re looking to snag this look for less.

From Footwear News:
If there’s one brand that’s perfected the art of the cold weather boot, it’s Danner. Founded in 1932, the iconic footwear label carries some of the most comfortable, durable and stylish looks for men on the market, its latest collaboration with outdoor retailer Huckberry being no exception.

Enter: the Vertigo 917 Gold Rush. An update of Danner’s Vertigo 917 model, the Gold Rush is finished in a stunning light brown colorway with suede heel accents and the Huckberry logo on the tongue. It also adds an elastic insert at the ankle for extra flexibility, while keeping many beloved features of the original — including lightweight yet plush cushioning, breathable Gore-Tex liners, a waterproof leather upper and sneaker-like Vibram gum outsole for added traction on wet trails and slick city streets alike.

It has got a modern look with the same solid grip and durable, rugged materials that will keep your feel comfortable and stable, whether you are in the city or on your next hike.
