Following a first look earlier in the week, the upcoming collaboration between New Balance and Danner is previewed here in greater detail. The joint venture, dubbed the "American Pioneer Project," celebrates two heritage American brands located on opposite coasts. The two silhouettes that make up the collaboration pay homage to the spirit of American craftmanship, featuring the Danner x New Balance 585 MiUSA ($365) and Danner x New Balance Danner Light boot ($430). The former, crafted in New Balance's manufacturing facility in Skowhegan, Maine, is done up in a blend of Horween leather and durable ballistic nylon. The latter is made in Danner's Portland, Oregon, factory, built with Horween leather and cordura, along with a comfortable Vibram outsole. The classic hiking design is finished with New Balance's signature grey color palette.
Look for the collaboration to launch October 1st at Danner stores, danner.com, New Balance Experience stores and select retailers.
Release Date: 10/1/16 (Saturday)
