The lug sole, lace up hiking boots trend continues to be a must have boot this winter, according to every It Girl, IG celeb, and Fashion Editor. It’s the best of fashion meets function, since a lot of us are also in the market for durable, comfy snow and hiking boots this season. The hubs purchased a pair of Danner Boots 2 years ago (he mentioned that they were the same pair worn by James Bond in the recent films), and he wears them nonstop every winter. This year, I decided to invest in my own pair of Danner Mountain Pass Boots! Read below for my Danner Mountain Pass Boots review and the lace up boot trend favorites also on my list.



Danner has been making premium quality hiking boots since 1932 in Portland, Oregon. They were the first domestic hiking boot company in the United States and have been recognized by top Outdoor editors as the makers of the most ideal hiking shoe.


The Danner Mountain Pass Boot is a modern, lighter weight version of Danner’s iconic Mountain Light Hiker Boot. It’s offered in 3 leather colors: Black, Cedar (reddish saddle brown), and Rio Latigo (warm tan). The boot lining features Dri-Lex technology, keeping the foot cool and dry.


I’ve been wearing my Danner Mountain Pass Boots daily for the last two weeks and I’m amazed at how comfortable, light, and good looking these boots are. They look like they would be a heavy boot but they’re actually lighter than a lot of my shoes (only 1 lb, 7 oz)! The genuine leather upper is gorgeous, and the red pop laces that are included make them a functional and fashionable statement boot. They’re the most comfortable shoes I own, hands down, and absolutely worth the investment.

I haven’t been to the snow or a hike yet, but friends who also wear this same boot have vouched for its durability, comfort, and water resistance through snow, rain, and casual hikes. I’ll update my review once I give these Danner Mountain Pass Boots a proper hike through the snow this Winter.

  3. I haven’t bought lace-up hiking boots in a very long time. I like the style and function of the Danner boots and the fact they aren’t heavy. This has kept me from buying a pair of hiking/snow boots because the heaviness always feels so uncomfortable.

  11. Last month I was traveling to Europe and have bought a few pairs of boots. I didn’t realize the boots in Europe are so affordable and with very high quality. However, I did not pay attention to the lace up boot. The striking lace is pretty stylish and stands out quite well.
