Review: Jag Lows

Year two of the Jag Low boots from Danner.  I got these last year, and wore them a TON.  I still do.  They are great low top boots that work for casual settings.

It’s great that Danner brought these back.  The 80s and 90s were a great time for footwear…and it’s obvious that these are doing well today.  These work not only from a nostalgic standpoint, but function as well.  I much prefer these to the running shoe style hiking shoes today.  I’m all about looking like an old man, but those push the envelope.  The Jag Lows actually offer a good bit of support so they are good for long stints of wear.  Whether it’s chasing kids, a hike, or errands, these work well.  They aren’t waterproof, but that’s not why you buy these.

And let’s be honest, there’s a cool 80’s Patagonia / Wookie vibe with these that just works.  Don’t tell me the original versions of these didn’t support a little noodle dancing on the ‘Ain’t Life Grand’ tour…

They recently released a new colorway called ‘Goblin Blue’ with the tan gum sole and I had to have them.  I love the colorway and can see these getting a lot of wear this Fall and Winter, especially in the WFH setting.

Note to all of you that played along on Instagram: The yellow laces were just a bit too much.  Let me get a few miles in these browns, and we’ll see what happens.

Have you pulled the trigger on some Jag Lows yet?  What do you think?

    The Goblin Blue color way is tough to find in stock right now. I almost pulled the trigger on the “Monks Robe/Chile” color way but then found the Goblin Blue on Domestic Domestic. Looking forward to putting some miles on them when they arrive.. I needed a new pair of casual kicks since everyone and their mother now wears On Clouds.

      Update: I couldn’t resist and had to put in the yellow laces over the brown.
