Danner Mountain 600 Hiking Boot - Men's

Tackle any terrain.

The Danner Men's Mountain 600 Hiking Boot carries Danner's legendary quality with premium protection from the elements and aggressive traction on the trail. This low-profile hiking boot is versatile enough for both around-town wear and grueling treks across challenging terrain. The secret to its street-to-trail versatility lies in a smooth-wearing suede upper paired with a Danner Dry waterproof membrane, making for a seamless blend of style and weather protection.

It's built on a relatively low-profile DPDX last, which retains sure-footed stability without adding much bulk. The TPU heel last bolsters stability across the rear of the boot, preventing it from folding in on itself during steep descents. It also boasts the responsive cushioning of a Vibram SPE midsole and unrelenting grip of a Vibram Fuga sole, so you can confidently conquer miles on rocky trails, muddy forests, and snow-covered streets.

No-BS boots

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 9.5 regular width

I have a hard time buying hiking boots. Either they're too clunky for the amount of support (feel like sparring armor) or they're just built poorly, all glued together with too much mesh and materials that wont hold up when you rub them against rocks and gravel for a couple thousand miles. These danners, happily, are different. They're simply constructed and tough. I expect them to keep my feet happy for thousands of miles like my previous pair.

Everything I look for in a boot

I've had these for an entire year now and I have to say, they are everything I had hoped for when they initially came out. I've backpacked well over thirty times in them and have hiked endless miles over the past year in them, all four seasons. They retain heat well with wool socks, they are comfortable as any solid pair of sneakers I've ever owned (Vibram soles are a miracle). The waterproof material is amazing and works perfectly with the boot liner (You can walk through decent sized streams without getting your feet wet). I have to say that in the next year or two, I'll either get another pair in a different color, or perhaps the same color. Well done Danner.

Danner 600's do it all.

I received my Danners 1 day before leaving on a 3 day adventure through the Porcupine Mtns in Michigans Upper Peninsula. Worried a little about break-in time I wore them through day one, no troubles, hiked through water almost ankle deep, no leaks, hiked some very rugged terrain along rivers, up steep moss covered rocks, so slippage whatsoever. Day two and day three were the same. Had only one problem by the end, being as waterproof as they are your feet can't breath and the sweat in these boots, so they stayed a touch wet throughout the trip. Had I anticipated this I would have tried drying them over night two. So really hot weather they will make you sweat and will stay a touch wet, but cooler weather, around 70 and under you should be just fine. It wasn't enough for me to drop a star because these boots will grip everything and they are the business straight out of the box, so 5 big ol' stars from me.

Lightweight but capable boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

These are lightweight boots with a soft sole that work best for hikes on relatively level trails and a light pack. I brought them to Italy to hike the Majella Massif, which with trails of about 4000-6000 feet up and down & from 10 to 15 miles, pushed them a bit far. While they worked OK on rough talus slopes, uneven terrain, and steep slopes, I found it hard to tighten them enough when descending without uncomfortably squeezing my feet due to their overall flexibility. The soft sole is well cushioned, but it also allows sharp rocks to prod your feet a bit. There is also a seam that runs right across the base of my pinky toe that rubs...a minor annoyance, but nothing major. Be sure to take off the sticker on the insole with acetone or another solvent. On a very long hike it partially detached, leaving glue exposed that created a hot spot and very nearly a blister. I put sunscreen on it just in time to lessen the friction. On the up side, they were not too hot, even in 80 F weather. All told, I am happy with them, but given the somewhat extreme place where I did most of my hiking, in retrospect I wish I had brought a heavier pair of boots.

Solid Boot & Comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

  • Size Bought: 10.5

You get a lot for the price of this boot. They are well built & there's no break-in period. Comfortable right out of the box. I did have to send back the first pair because the sizing was one full size too large. I would recommend them for Spring/Fall/Winter wear as they are pretty warm.

Unanswered Question

Would this boot be too warm for hiking Inca Trail in August (~70 F)? Reading awesome reviews on this boot, but some mention that it can get warm inside. Limited experience here picking boots, so any recommendations on lighter (but sturdy) options are much appreciated. Thanks!

Most Comfortable Boot I've Ever Owned

These are by far the best boot I've ever had on my feet. Even after a full day of hiking in these bad boys, my feet feel fine. The are so light they feel like a sneaker. I've owned Danner boots before but these might be my favorite. 100% would recommend to a friend.

Great boots, gets hot in there

This boot is awesome. Construction is solid, it is super lightwweight. I feel like I am wearing a sneaker. Grip is amazing and there is absolutely zero break-in period needed. Good to go fresh out of the box. My only issue is that it gets hot in there. Going from working the outdoors and then stopping to sit or eat, I can feel the heat radiating around and I am afraid it may lead to some funk. I use the Danner wildland boots for work and I feel they do a better job of heat management. Could be I have extra sweaty/hot feet too. GREAT BOOT! WOULD GET ANOTHER PAIR IF I HAD TO!

This boot takes all comers. It is light, durable, comfortable, and warm. Since I have purchased them, it's all that I have worn. I have no complaints. It looks great in an urban environment and also functions well on the trail. They fit true to size. Also, Dan Gates, my sales rep, was super helpful.

Danner Quality, New Technology

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

The Mountain 600 has combined the classic Danner silhouette and color patterns with modern design trends and technology. Customers have come to expect quality from Danner. The 600 is no exception, drawing its design from the original Mountain Light boot. From the moment you receive your boots you are reminded of the detail and thought that has gone into this product.

Right out of the box the boots are comfortable. The fit runs true to size, I wear a 12 in most hiking and athletic shoe brands and picked up a 12 here as well. The boot is snug enough to allow me to wear thin socks and not have my foot sliding around inside, but also spacious enough to accommodate a thicker hiking sock. The suede upper is extremely soft and conforms to the top of your foot very well. The lacing system allows you to make adjustments in multiple zones of the foot to ensure a great fit. Unlike some boots I own the lace hooks are very easy to catch with the laces but do not stick out far enough to snag pants.

The boot can easily be worn as a casual piece, dressed up or down. But is more than capable of handling itself on the trail with an aggressive tread pattern and a Vibram sole. Danner uses their own waterproofing known as Danner Dry. No issues here as my feet felt comfortable temperature wise all day. The boot breathed well, and I haven’t noticed any clammy feeling. I have yet to wear them in any wet environment (it is Utah after all).

I think the feature I love best is the weight. The boot feels light as soon as you pick it up, but even after a full days use you still hardly notice it is there. Overall I have nothing but positive things to say about this product. In today’s world everyone is constantly on the go, and rightfully so, there’s a lot to see. If you’re like me and arrive at a lot of your destinations by foot, you might as well do your feet a favor and make them comfortable along the way.
