There are certain menswear collaborations that are both too good to pass up and entirely ingenious and innovative at the same time. Take the much-loved, highly coveted and fast-selling Huckberry x Danner partnership, a meeting of the minds between two West Coast brands that perfectly epitomizes the spirit of adventure and rugged style. More importantly, it’s given us the Huckberry x Danner Vertigo 917 Gold Rush Boots, some of the best men’s boots — and newly restocked in Huckberry’s ever-so-well-curated selection of men’s footwear. It’s a natural partnership between the San Francisco retailer, which already makes pieces like your favorite waxed trucker jacket, and it only makes sense that they’d choose to partner once again on another of Huckberry x Danner boots. In fact, this partnership first launched in early 2019, and sold out quickly (to say the least). Now, the Huckberry x Danner Gold Rush Boots are back and better than ever — and selling quickly once again.
Even an initial glance at the Huckberry x Danner Vertigo 917 Gold Rush Boots shows why they’re a hot-selling commodity — and a perfect addition to what’s hopefully a wardrobe stocked with plenty of other Huckberry menswear essentials, right? No doubt. These rugged men’s hiking boots are surprisingly springy and lightweight, making them perfect to wear for all manner of seasonal pursuits (but especially exploring a new city, taking a park stroll or visiting your favorite brewery. Take it from this writer: The Huckberry x Danner Vertigo 917 Gold Rush Boots are some of the most comfortable boots for men I’ve ever worn.
And luckily, the Huckberry x Danner Gold Rush Boots are a terrific value for the style and utility you get out of ’em. They’re built with a dependable, flexible Vibram outsole, which also features the use of a rubber compound for added traction and proprietary functionality. Whether navigating slippery sidewalks or cobblestone streets, the Huckberry x Danner Gold Rush Boots are as reliable and utilitarian as can be. The rich full-grain leather upper, designed to break in handsomely over time, just so happens to be waterproof and made to take on the elements (as I found when I tested out my boots exploring rainy Vancouver back when the partnership first dropped).
The frankly remarkable Huckberry x Danner Gold Rush Boots are also more sleek in form than traditional hiking boots, not unlike your favorite pair of sneaker boots, for instance. GORE-TEX lining also helps keep your feet dry, while the boots themselves sit atop a new last that updates the Danner 971 – hence the new name Vertigo 917 adorning the stylish and useful-as-can-be Huckberry x Danner Gold Rush Boots. These boots are perhaps best worn with expertly faded jeans, a thermal henley and your Huckberry waxed trucker jacket, but they can pull double-duty if needed with a pair of slim Huckberry chinos and a stretch Oxford shirt if need be. If it’s not clear by now, well, the Huckberry x Danner Gold Rush Boots are some of the coolest, most versatile boots you can buy — and they won’t be around for long, so act accordingly and snag a pair today.
