Reintroducing an '80's Danner Original The original Danner Jag debuted in the 1980s as a lightweight alternative to our classic, heavy-duty hiking boots. After a few years on the trail supporting external frame backpacks and complementing denim cut-offs, the Jag was retired. Now 30 years later, we've reintroduced the Jag as a more versatile version of its former self. It's comfortable both on the trail and around town, with lightweight and breathable materials that make it ideal for warm-weather wear. A new waffle outsole adapts to a wide variety of terrain. We're proud to reintroduce this Danner original.
