In our inaugural episode of HYPEBEAST Road Trips Portland, we head up the Pacific Northwest and check into Portland, Oregon. Long known as the home of both footwear and sporting history, Portland’s own hometown product of Danner has been providing the world with rugged and timeless boots extending over fashion, work, and the armed forces. Dating back to 1932 and conceived by Charles Danner, its inception was during a time of uncertainty with the Great Depression. However an acute attention to quality and detail ensured Danner secured a place in history with a lasting impression in multiple contexts. We head down to the Danner factory to gain some understanding in one of the most important and respected pieces of equipment deemed “essential” on the line. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s episode with Shwood’s Crafting Process.
