Danner has teamed up with Ball and Buck, the Colorado-based brand for sporting gentlemen, to produce the Ball and Buck x Danner Light, a special take on the footwear producer’s most iconic silhouette. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of their first partnership together, the formerly sold-out boots have been reissued for a limited run beginning Oct 12, 2023.

“This is a full circle moment for Ball and Buck and Danner, coining 10 years since our first collaboration and I am thrilled to be doing it with them once again,” says Mark Bollman, founder and CEO of Ball and Buck. “Danner is one of the most recognizable American brands in the outdoor footwear industry; known for their quality and craftsmanship, I am so proud to create something with them that will last a lifetime.”

Ball and Buck’s signature camo in 10-ounce duck cloth combined with Danner’s special oiled and waxed leather upper sets the stage for the perfect patina, which only improves with outdoor wear and tear. Blaze orange stitching and antique brass hardware provide a rugged aesthetic while the Vibram Gumlite sole and Gore-Tex technology make the boots durable and waterproof, with excellent grip no matter the condition. The Ball and Buck x Danner Light is versatile enough for urban wear, but tough enough for more serious mountain trails and hunting adventures. Ball and Buck & Danner will also offer re-craftable services, to repair any damage the boots may incur while on the adventures ahead of them.
