The women's Mountain Light Cascade is featured in the Fox Searchlight Pictures release, WILD, based on the New York Times best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed. The film, which follows Strayed's journey on the Pacific Crest Trail, will be released in select theaters on December 5, 2014.
Made in the USA at Danner’s Portland, Ore. factory, the Mountain Light Cascade is a tribute to one of Danner’s iconic hiking styles introduced in the early 1970’s – a style that is believed by many to be the greatest backpacking boot of all time. It features a full-grain leather upper and a 100% water resistant Cambrelle lining. The boot is outfitted with retro-inspired flat red laces and a rugged Vibram Kletterlift outsole, perfect for outdoor or casual use.
The boot will be packaged in a vintage-style Danner box – the exact replica Danner used in 1995, the year Cheryl Strayed set off on her Pacific Crest Trail adventure. Included will be a sew-on patch that features an image of Oregon’s Mt. Hood and the Pacific Crest Trail mile marker 2,096 – the gateway to Mt. Hood National Forest.
