These are great boots, true to size. Waterproof is excellent. I bought them for elk/deer hunting the black hills. I didn’t run into rain, but wet grass in the morning. Of course the goretex makes my feet hot and sweaty, but that is how it goes for me and waterproof boots. I did wear them a little a few nights before the trip, but they didn’t need a break in period really. Scheels had them on sale a few weeks after I bought them and the manager gave the difference back(I did buy them at Scheels.com). Great boot for early seasons.
I have purchased a good amount of Danner hiking boots previously and have had nothing but great reviews. First pair of Pronghorn hunting boots I have bought but so far I am really impressed. The general break in period is fairly short, I have hiked quite a few different Oregon and Washington trails and these have truly impressed me. The bottom grip of the boots is very quiet and well balanced as well stable and comfortable. These boots have amazing support! With a previous sporting injury my ankle requires a very stable support which these boots have. The full grain leather and upper part of these boots is completely breathable and wearable for hours of walking. Again I've had nothing but good experiences with Danner and look forward to using these boots for the many hunts ahead.
Needed a new pair of “cold weather” boots and bought the Pronghorn 400gram in 11-1-2D. I tried them on with heavy wool socks and sock liners and felt they were a little too snug. I called Danner and they provided a free return shipping label via email while I was on the phone with them. I reordered in 12D and feel the fit is nearly perfect. I normally wear a size 10-1/2D in dress shoes with thin socks, so allow for sock thickness when selecting size. My previous experience with Danner quality has been very good and I have no doubt these boots will do as well.
I actually use these boots for work, and I'm going on year 3 with them and they're the best. I swear by them. Long days working outdoors, in the summer & winter, these boots hold their own. Comfortable and strong.
I have worn pronghorns for work ( union carpenter) and for all my hunting. They were the best boot until the 5 th gen came out. These are narrower and stiffer then the previous model. The toe is smaller and definitely don't feel as good. Go back to the 4 th gen boot or this will be my last pair.
The boots are very comfortable and I have utilize them up at elevations between 6000 and 8000 feet during the day. Very good foot and ankle support. A great light boot for early season hunting and scouting. They are definitely everything I expect them to be; a very light, comfortable, supportive, early season dry boot.
I love these. More than once I've had to go through some serious thorns and bramble on a whitetail hunt in Texas and these were more than equal to the task. They are tough, comfortable and always keep you dry and sturdy. I'd love a side zipper, but they're still a 5-star boot for me and I'd buy them again without thinking twice.
I love the look and style. The outer leather is great quality and good finish. Size was a good fit, but this boot was not as soft or comfortable to my foot. Other Danner boots have felt more comfortable than this style.
I bought these for tree climbing. Little tight to begin with width wise on the toe. Did s couple days river fishing to break em in. Very flexible for limb walking and gecko crawling. Sits good in spikes. I hope stitches holds up to abuse. They are usually first failure.
I loved the Pronghorn off the past. However, this boot tended to very narrow & tight. I am presently returning it. On a different note, I purchased the East Ridge & I am very happy with it. Thank you for the great sale on this boot as well.
there great I ware out a pair of pronghorns every summer there light wait and flexibility works great in my excavation work. im alays jumping out of the heavy equipment and into the ditch. when im not working im hunting or fishing. after a long day my feet are still comfortable keep up the good work danner, my wife has a pair to and she named our golden retriever danner
These boots are great. Break in was very short and they are extremely comfortable. First day out of the box wore them for 5 miles and had no issues or hot spots. I have only put about 30 miles in with these boots but no issues so far.
Excited when 4th gen came out because they were supposed to be more breathable than the previous generations and now saw they all ready moved to a 5th within just a few years. My older generations pronghorn gave up the ghost. Tried on the 5th gen and so disappointed. Looked at 4th gen and saw it was the same. They redesigned the back where the Achilles is and there is a ridge of material that is quite noticeable to the touch and runs around above the heel and just walking around the store for about 10 minutes with both 5th and 4th gen both hit me just to the side of my Achilles and started to rub me. Which means no new pronghorn for me. Other styles don’t have it. Will be looking for new style or brand.
The really liked the Pronghorns which appear to be excellent quality. I ordered 13EE and 14EE and was disappointed I could wear neither. The 13 was OK in length but too narrow in EE width. The 14 too large. Sorry that I had to return both pair.
Spent quite a few days chasing turkeys with these. After I put some miles on them they are super comfy. They are real stable on steep terrain. Im not sure if its these boots or if Im turning into a ninja, but the are extremely quite in the woods. Well done.
Great boots overall! They definitely need to be broken in like any quality boot but after that they are amazing. Super comfortable, great grip, and great support. I have already put several 20mile days in these boots with no blisters to show for it.
My last pair of Pronghorns (purchased about 2007) were broke in after only once or twice wearing them, really no breakin period, and they lasted over 10 years, until the soles wore out.
The new ones feel much stiffer throughout, and they do not feel broke in yet after 5-6 full days afield. I can't speak to longevity yet, but I've got a feeling these imported boots will not have the life the domestic ones did. I have a couple other pairs of imported Danners purchased in the last couple years and am not impressed with the direction the quality of Danner has gone. If I didn't have a 40% off coupon code due to a Danner warranty issue on a different pair, I would have likely looked much harder at other brands. Time will tell what I do going forward.
I reluctantly sent my G4 Pronghorns in under warranty after some stitching in the back, just above the heal came apart, leaving a 1/2" wide hole that I probably could of had a local shoe repair shop fix. After getting my new G5's in size 10.5 regular 400gr, I immediate noticed a big difference in fit, feel and finish. The regulars, were very narrow and after consulting with Danner customer service I was recommended to try the wides. So I sent in my narrow 400gr and swapped them for a 10.5EE no insulation so I could just get plain brown. I have been wearing these boots about 3 days a week for the last 6 weeks, putting on maybe 4 miles a day in mountainous terrain (Black Hills of SD) and these do not compare to the G4's that at this point I wish I could have back. My feet have been wet inside them, but it's hard to say if it's water over the top or through the boot. My G4's never had a leak, even with the hole. For a EE Wide boot, the toe box is crazy narrow, my G4's toe box was so nice, ample, and they were standard width. The laces are garbage, and one of the first items to get replaced after only a few days. I sent my G4's back with the original laces still in them after 3 full bore hunting seasons. The soles squeak on some surfaces and the sole is supposed to be one of the big upgrades for the G5. Meh, it's too narrow and feels cheap. I'm willing to bet I don't get the same mileage as my G4's. What is up with the width of the lace openings? The tongue of the boot makes up 1/3 of the width. My G4's were all leather, no denier, and all brown and 400gr. The G5's don't have an all leather option, and not even an all brown option at the 400gr. My G4's were sneaker comfortable after about 20 miles, and my goto for any and all outdoor activities, these G5's might end up sitting in the corner, still factory stiff, until the G6's come out, or I find a boot that I think deserves more of my attention. I mean I kinda get it, the G4's probably cost more the manufacture then they could sell them for, the G5's seem like they were made by a low bid Alibaba manufacturer. Danner took a step in the wrong direction on this generation of Pronghorns. Overall cons they feel "cheap", look cheap, 5x downgrade from the G4's, there isn't a full leather or brown 400gr version Overall pros Danner Warranty, leather is nice and supple
Excellent fit! Very high quality boot. I had to send a par back to Danner due to some of the stitching coming apart. I had a very positive experience returning my boots and getting new ones in just a couple of day,
