Weather changes, terrain varies, and sometimes you find yourself traveling further afield than planned - the Vital is designed for the unknown and the unexpected. Light, fast, aggressive, yet stealthy. Let your feet help you disappear into your environment.
ABRASION-RESISTANT LEATHER & TEXTILE UPPERA
specialized process is used to impregnate split leather with polyurethane to create an exceptionally durable and abrasion resistant leather. We've paired the leather with 900 denier polyester to create a hard-wearing upper.
100% waterproof barrier allows moisture to escape without letting water in, keeping your feet dry and comfortable all day long.
LOCK & LOAD LACING SYSTEM
Reengineered ghilles across the forefoot for a secure, yet quiet fit, and locking speed hooks for quick lacing.
400G THINSULATE ULTRA INSULATION
High-performance insulation that keeps you warm in the snow and rain without weighing you down.
OPEN CELL POLYURETHANE FOOTBED
Our polyurethane footbed provides superior shock absorption with an additional layer of open cell construction for improved air circulation.
DANNER PLYOLITE MIDSOLE
All-new Danner midsole offering lightweight comfort and durability.
DANNER VITAL OUTSOLE
Multi-directional lugs provide grip on moss, rock and slick surfaces.
MESH LINED TONGUE CONSTRUCTION
Features a mesh liner layered over a waterproof membrane on the tongue to help regulate both moisture and temperature where it has the largest impact, on the top of your foot.
patterning of multi-density foam eliminates hot spots and pinch points for a more comfortable upper.
HOW IT FITS
This boot is built on our DT4 last. This last provides an athletic fit with a tighter heel pocket and a wider toe box. The sleek, streamlined last is excellent for on or off trail hiking.
