Constructed with a full grain leather, a unique abrasion resistant SuperFabric® and a PU coated toe and heel cap, the upper is waterproof, flexible and nearly indestructible. Combined with the lightweight yet supportive EXO® platform, the Tektite supports this nearly indestructible upper with comfort, stability and oil and slip resistant traction.
We just updated our Danner footwear line, adding all of their newest styles along with their Hiking, Hunting and Work boots.
Here is a breakdown of some of their new styles:
Danner approached the Tektite design as a challenge to find synergy between the fit of a sneaker and the strength of a work boot. Their realization came in two forms; the lightweight EXO platform design and the lightweight, highly breathable and abrasion resistant strength of Superfabric.
Challenging themselves to craft a boot with the lightweight performance of a sneaker, Danner developed the unique EXO platform system and wrapped it in thermoplastic polyurethane for durability and extra comfort. Integrated with our DT4 last, the Tektite provides a highly responsive, low profile athletic fit.
Understanding the need to develop a unity between strength and breathability, Danner engineered a way to craft the boot upper out of a Super Fabric material which provides extreme abrasion resistant strength in a highly breathable form and then lined it with GORE-TEX XCR which was engineered for added comfort and breathability while providing the same waterproof protection.
Danner’s lightest and most flexible tactical boot, the Melee features a unique outsole design. Their unique Melee outsole is constructed with a 360 pentagonal low lug pattern for grip in all directions, a rugged outer lug pattern with molded siping that disperses water and provides maximum surface contact and Danners patent pending VIA technology which provides a V-4 abrasion rubber compound in the medial side arch for fast roping control.
Designed as a vertical assault weapon, the Danner Flight Assault (DFA) features low oil content nubuc leather, a lightweight 1000 Denier nylon upper, a hexagonal low lug outsole with a patent pending Vertical Insertion Arrestor (VIA) technology insert which provides abrasion resistance and superior control in fast roping applications.
