New Balance x Danner ‘American Pioneer Project’ - The Drop Date

New Balance x Danner ‘American Pioneer Project’ – A First Look



Sneakerheads with an interest in American heritage brands will be delighted with the NEW BALANCE x DANNER ‘AMERICAN PIONEER PROJECT’, featuring the Danner x New Balance 585 MiUSA and the Danner x New Balance Light Boot.

These two new shoes are the result of the partnership between New Balance and Danner, a premium boot manufacturer from the U.S.’s rugged Pacific Northwest region. What they are calling the ‘American Pioneer Project’ is expected to drop on 1st October. Lovers of well-crafted American footwear, the outdoor life, or simply something sturdier but still stylish for the colder months, should give these strong consideration. Let’s take a closer look…

The Danner x New Balance 585 MiUSA’s upper combines a tanned Horween leather, which we see in a lot of NB shoes, with tough ballistic nylon – both atop an off-white midsole. The addition of Danner-style boot laces and lacelocks perfect the marriage between an outdoor-style shoe with a classic NB runner.

Next up is the New Balance Danner Light Boot, which is more your classic hiking boot style silhouette, combining grey suede and an all-weather Cordura mesh and, like the 585, touches of Horween leather. Other NB-style features include a leather piece on the heel that’s much like a CR device, and a NB-branded lace lock. The boot also includes a Vibram outsole and a reflective flecked lace completing that rugged, ready-for-anything-the-weather-and-terrain-can throw-at-me look.

After having a gander at the photos, will you want one or the other or both pairs? The NEW BALANCE x DANNER ‘AMERICAN PIONEER PROJECT’ launches in the US shortly. Keep checking back with us for any news on a wider release.
