Boots In The “Wild”



Now in theatre is “Wild”, starring Reese Witherspoon, based on the bestselling memoir by Cheryl Strayed. The book tells the story of the author who hiked 1,100-miles along the Pacific Crest Trail, as a way to overcome her mother’s death, crumbling marriage and a life out of control.

For those who read the book, the cover will be memorable for the image of the single worn-in red laced hiking boot. These boots play a large role in Strayed’s journey and were recreated for the movie by Danner, a Made-In-America heritage brand based in Portland, Oregon. Danner is releasing the Mountain Light Cascade which Witherspoon wears throughout the film at REI and other select stores in October, and also makes a great line of other classically styled retro hiking boots.
