Lightning Magazine digs deep into the Danner archives for a special collaborative release on the bootmaker‘s iconic 8068 silhouette.

Limited to 200 pieces, this decommissioned model from 1979 sees a taller cut of 8 inches rather than Danner’s more modern 6-inch cut — this is what the staff at Lightning Magazine call the “Golden Ratio” when it comes to boot height and pant leg roll height.

The boot also sees Horween Leather construction mixed with Cordura, full GORE-TEX lining, a fiberglass shank, and a Vibram “Kletterlift” outsole. Those interested in the USA-made (Portland, Oregon) Lightning Magazine x Danner 8068 boot can find the pre-order over at clutch-cafe.com for a price of £582.50 GBP (approximately $757 USD).
