If you’ve found yourself sitting on the Bull Run fence for too long or have yet to have them appear on your footwear radar, here is a full rundown of why they are so good.
What is the Danner Bull Run Made From?
Made from a full-grain leather, The Bull Run aims to strike the perfect balance between robust protection and all-day comfort. Unlined to allow for a more lightweight feel and greater breathability when things get warm, Danner deploy a series of 7 tests ranging from strength and density to pull to ensure the leather used is hardwearing enough to withstand external forces, but also malleable enough to mould to the foot over time. Constructed using techniques that date back to 1932 and made in the USA their stitchdown technique makes for a wider more stable platform and easier repairs should they be needed.
Are Danner Bull Runs Waterproof?
Due to their unlined nature Danner Bull Runs are not waterproof, however that’s not to say they don’t offer any protection. Tanned with the inclusion of oil, the specialist treatment enhances the fabrics natural water resistant properties whilst also ensuring less maintenance overtime.
Are Bull Runs Comfortable?
The Bull Run sits atop a Danner wedge sole. Not only does this sole grant contemporary visuals, but it comes engineered to follow the flow and anatomy of the foot offering support where its needed most. Both oil and slip resistant as well as non-conducive, the design allows room for a cushioned footbed for even more comfort. Recommended for smooth surfaces such as concrete or wood, a non-tracking grip ensures an easy ride.
How Do Danner Bull Runs Fit?
Combining a Portland 503 last and the aforementioned stitch down construction, The Bull Runs come with a casual feel and slightly wider than usual fit to offer extra room across the forefoot and toebox. Despite this many people do usually take their true size however some may find they run a little roomy.
