BUILT FOR THE CITY, READY FOR THE TRAIL
While we wish we could spend most days on the trail, that’s often not the reality. Urban landscapes form the backdrop of many a day. The Caprine was built to bring our iconic durability and performance to a form fit for life in the city. The custom Vibram outsole and Caprine name are inspired by the highest places in nature and the mountain goats that navigate them. Using premium nubuck leather and our new ultra-strong, abrasion-resistant knit upper, we’ve built light and breathable shoe with the durability we insist on. The clean, minimalist design and city-life performance will leave you ready for any day in town and any impromptu adventure on the trail.
The functionality and performance of a good hiking boot is undeniable, but in the city they can be overkill in many situations. When designing the Caprine, we set out to deliver the traction and durability of a hiker in a sleek urban form. The Caprine has a lightweight and breathable upper that merges nubuck leather with our new 3D knit upper for a clean, minimalist aesthetic. Whether you dress it up or dress it down, you’ll know you’ve got a shoe that can perform and look good doing it.
NEW DIRECTION, SAME DURABILITY.
No matter what we’re making, durability is never up for compromise. For the Caprine that meant creating a new, ultra-strong knit for the upper from extremely high tensile strength yarns that can withstand our rigorous testing standards. Strategically placed waterproof and abrasion-resistant nubuck leather adds protection to high-stress zones. We DWR coated the Caprine to help repel both rain and the occasional coffee spill. To keep each step a comfortable one, we used a midsole made from our Plyolite EVA that will provide long-lasting underfoot cushioning.
NATURE DOES IT BEST
In collaboration with the experts at Vibram, we developed an outsole inspired by the two-toed hooves of goats for maximum grip. The heel of our new outsole mimics the parabolic shape of each toe of a goat hoof to provide strength, as well as the ability for independent movement from each side of the heel. This allows the Caprine to help absorb and grip any irregularities in the ground. The entire outsole was designed for superior urban traction by using increased surface area with the ground beneath and is made from Vibram’s Megagrip compound known for extra-grippy performance on wet or dry surfaces.
CAPRINE LOW SUEDE
Sure Footing for Urban Exploring
When our team set out to create the ultimate city hiker, superior traction was top of mind. Our designers took inspiration from nature and teamed up with Vibram to take on the challenge. The result is the Caprine. With an outsole design based on mountain goat hoofs, we created the grippiest Danner in our line – perfect for both on and off-road adventures. New for 2020, the durable suede upper with rubber toe bumper provides the ideal balance of comfort and protection. With its understated style and advanced technology, the Caprine is built for the most discerning urban explorer.

My only con would be that the material does get dirty fairly easily and I'm not sure it will be so easy to clean. They start to look well worn quite quickly. With that said, they are my go to pair of shoes when I am heading out.
Might be narrow for some people though no issue for me in size 12. Ordered 1/2 size up.
Will buy Danner again
Comfortable and great quality. Worth the money.
