SEATTLE, WA & PORTLAND, OR (October 2, 2017) – Filson and Danner, two outdoor brands rooted in the Pacific Northwest, have teamed up to create the limited-edition Filson x Danner Grouse boot. Inspired by traditional hunt and military wear, the original Grouse boot is a signature hunting boot in the Danner line and developed in the company’s Portland, Ore. factory. Together, the new Filson x Danner Grouse boot features classic materials from both brands, resulting in a timeless, utilitarian design.

Both companies have a longstanding history of outfitting outdoorsmen in the Pacific Northwest. Filson, founded in 1897 in Seattle, Wash., originally outfitted prospectors heading up to the Klondike Gold Rush and later moved into outfitting loggers in the timber industry. Similarly, Danner, after being founded in the Midwest in 1932, moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1936 to develop dependable but affordable logging boots before moving into hiking and military boots.

“Due to our deeply similar history and a continued dedication to producing the best quality gear, the collaboration between Filson and Danner is an obvious fit, with Danner being the true experts in footwear built for the field,” says Andreas Herr, Filson Marketing Director.

The Filson x Danner Grouse boot is completely waterproof and built with Danner’s premium, full-grain leather. The boot also features the Portland-based brand’s classic stitchdown construction for added stability. Filson’s signature and highly durable waxed Tin Cloth is featured on the side panels, highlighting some of the most iconic materials of each brand. Other features include a GORE-TEX® lining and Vibram® Sierra outsole, which is common among Danner military boots. It is also co-branded with Danner and Filson logos on the tongue.

“When I think of iconic Pacific Northwest brands, Filson is at the top of that list,” says Will Pennartz, Sr. Marketing Manager for Danner. “With only 375 pairs available, this limited-edition collaboration celebrates two legendary brands and a shared commitment to building premium goods here in the United States. We’re proud to feature the Danner and Filson names side by side on this boot."

The Filson x Danner Grouse boot is now available at Danner and Filson stores and online at Danner.com and Filson.com for $390.
