Editor's Notes: It feels like a lifetime ago that the 25th James Bond film, No Time to Die, was announced. Following the departure of Danny Boyle and John Hodge from the movie's production due to creative differences, and the snowball effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, the film faced an abundance of delays.
Now, a full two years after the title's official release, Bond is finally headed back to the big screen. As has become customary with the international spy's cinematic adventures, the release is not without a slew of stylistic collaborations close behind.
Most recently we've had eyes on the upcoming James Bond x adidas Running Collection, which, frankly, didn't quite meet expectations. There's plenty to choose from, with further collabs from Omega, Swatch, and Crockett & Jones, to name a few. Given the character's penance for sharp tailoring and high-octane action, it can be hard to hit the mark – but Danner understood the assignment.
Given the brand's history of providing high-performance tactical boots for the armed forces, it made perfect sense to dress Bond for his latest mission. Created using Danner's mainstay Tanicus boot, the 007 Tanicus features durable suede and ballistic nylon paired with a breathable mesh lining in an all-black finish.
Although Q won't hand-deliver these, the special-edition collectors packaging just might provide the experience of gearing up as 007.
