The movie WILD is compulsory viewing for hikers. The film, by Fox Searchlight Pictures, follows the true story of hiker Cheryl Strayed, played by Reese Witherspoon, as she solo-hikes along the 1100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. With absolutely no prior experience, her risky journey was her own way of recovering from personal tragedy and a low point in her life.

The red-laced Reese Witherspoon Wild boots are an icon of the 1990’s

The iconic red-laced Danner boots that Reese Witherspoon wears in the movie were typical of boots worn by hikers in 1995. To improve the movie’s authenticity, the film company asked Danner to custom-make a batch of replica boots for Witherspoon. However, Danner didn’t stop there and banking on the popularity of the film went into full production. The story of the WILD boot is told in the following video.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you can get a taste of it from the official trailer below, and now there’s nothing stopping you from wearing your own Danner Mountain Light Cascade boots while reading the book on which the movie was based at home.
