PORTLAND, Ore. - Danner, a leading provider of premium, branded work and outdoor recreational footwear, announced today that it has recently launched a new website (www.danner.com) which provides improved customer service and enhances the consumers experience with the brand. Danner tells its unique point of view through multimedia, rich imagery, improved navigation and increased user generated content.
Visitors are now rewarded with compelling video and more detailed product imagery throughout the site. â€œWe installed new filtering tools to improve product navigation. Consumers can now find the exact product they're looking for based on activity, features, climate, color, height and fit. We even thought about the long footed man â€“ making it much faster to find size 15 Danner boots," says Micah Davis, Ecommerce Manager at Danner Footwear. â€œThe updated look and feel, and site layout is designed to simplify the user experience even though we are featuring more content than ever before.â€
Consumer stories detail real-life experience with the product. The featured homepage story is a must read! â€œNow 29 Years Later I Have Proven My Wife Very Wrongâ€¦â€ Other consumer experiences include â€œMy Danner Boots vs. The Drunk," â€œQuality In A Name," â€œSecond Tour In Iraqâ€ and â€œMake Or Break My Name." To experience Danner is to experience a lifetime foot-to-boot relationship. After years upon years of abuse, longtime wearers can avoid tossing their favorite boots into landfills by utilizing Danner's Recrafting Department located within the Portland, Oregon factory. Many Danner boots can be resoled and reworked to go even further.
Recognizing the importance of trying product on, the new site layout makes it much easier to find a store by city and zip code. Visitors are also given the option to order product direct from Danner with free shipping and free returns within the continental U.S. (does not include AK and HI).
Film and video communicate Danner's unique hands on approach for crafting higher standards â€“ from hand cutting and grading leather to high quality components and materials such as the VibramÂ® outsole and GORE-TEXÂ® lining. The HD video, found on the homepage, brilliantly shares the boot maker's pleasure and pride in craftsmanship. The video can easily be shared by a simple â€˜click of the mouse' via email and social networks on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.
