Sometimes you get to a point where you just can't improve or perfect a proven design anymore, and you have to look in another direction. This "outside the box" thinking help Danner designers bring you the innovative, patent pending EXO platform. To get lighter and more comfortable, Danner threw away the shank without sacrificing support or stability. Instead of the standard shank system, the designers developed the light, EXO skeleton chassis to provide the same superior support and toe-to-heel flexibility of a traditional shank design in a lighter, more comfortable boot platform. The result? A boot durable enough to support the Danner badge, but lightweight enough to perform like an athletic shoe.
