These are my third pair of Danners..I had switched to another brand name hunting boot but it was never as comfortable as my Danners. Very little break-in required. One caveat is these boots run narrow. Have been very pleased with my Danners over the years.
Not too satisfied with these Danner boots. This is at least my 3rd pair and I loved the others but these seem to be defective or are just so narrow in the toes. They even appear with the naked eye to have less room. Don't know what I'm going to do?
Best quality boot - but Danner really needs to re-think its hunting boots and integrate a comfortable footbed into the boot. The forbids are simply way too hard. Aftermarket liners distort the foot box and make the fit crampy. A best quality footbed should be integrated into the boot. I've had a pair of now discontinued Danner 600 gram thinsulate Santiams for 15 years - caesura with a great integrated. What a waste of an otherwise amazing boot.
My son in law absolutely loves these boots!!! Your customer service is above and beyond too. They were so helpful when I was worried about getting them on time for Christmas!! They tracked and kept me updated daily as to the status of the shipment. We got them in time for Christmas and he was so thrilled when he opened the box. We love Scheels!!! Thank you !! We will be return customers for sure.
The Sierra boot is my Favorite boot I your line. they are so comfortable I wear them out, now I didn't know that you refurbished them till my news ones arrived. I'm sending back my old ones back soon. My next Danner boot will be the 8 I be Elk hunter il 11 1/2 EE I'm sure cv they will meet al my expectations. Thank you for the greatest boots made Jim Pawloski
They look very sharp. The soles are a little stiff but they are breaking in. I have worn them for about 10 days and think it will be another 10 before they are broken in nicely. They are my go to boot!
I've been wearing Danner Boots for the past forty plus years. I have worn them all over the United States as well as in Africa on several occasions. I choose Danner Boots because of their quality construction and their consistent comfort and reliability. While coming to the rescue of my Labrador Retriever three days ago; who had gotten himself tangled in some drift wood in a near by river...I did have a pair of Danner Sierras leak for the first time I can remember. To be fair to Danner; I should mention that it is December and I was in four feet of water without my waders at the time... Ken Shrewsbury, Roanoke VA.
I love the style, construction and materials used for this boot and have two other models of Danners that I purchased previously of the same size and width. The company suggests that this boot fit is narrow and to purchase a width wider than you would normally wear as I have done previously with the non-insulated version of the grouse boot. I followed the recommendation and found that the front of the boot fits glove tight, but unfortunately it is loose in the heel and have had to install an adhesive heel gripping stop to the back and a modified heel pad insole to get close to the comfort that is necessary for a hunting boot. Bottom line: this is an extremely well constructed boot but the fit is not quite right for my foot and took a lot of trial and error with pads and various insoles to make it work.
Bought this boot for late season pheasant hunting, as I wear the Recon/Acadia for work and they are the same construction. I typically get 5-6 years out of my Recons (with a re-sole). Heel and mid foot fit well, but a bit narrow in the front. Just did 20 miles of walking on a pheasant hunt and kept feet warm and completely dry, even when breaking through ice (2-4" water). Don't buy if want a light athletic feel boot, but if looking for a real boot that is bomb proof and entirely made in the USA, this is the boot for you.
I love the boots but the soles are truly frightening. They are too hard and slip on rocks, are horrible on hard surfaces and absolutely frightening on snow or icy conditions. I’ve hit the deck several times and this weekend my crash knocked me and my rifle scope out of zero and shut down my hunt until the next day when I could re-zero, this experience finalized my need to re-sole these boots even though they show very little wear. I think an insulated boot should have a soles that works well in cold weather. Yikes!!
Excellent boot! Have used the Acadia as my work boots for years and wanted the same quality for hunting. The Acadia has lasted for 12 years and are still going strong. Upon arrival of the new boots, was relieved to find the same construction and quality of the Acadia. Had read some comments of the the tread being slippery in ice and snow, however, I have not found this to be an issue. If looking for similar boot to the Acadia, this is it. I do with the lace eyelets were the exact same instead of the lace hooks, but they work well. Pricey, but worth money.
Excellent boot. Very comfortable right out of the box. NOTE: The folks at Danner stated that the boots run slightly longer and narrower so I took their advice and ordered 1/2 size smaller and EE...perfect!
I have wanted to try these boots for a long time. Glad I finally did. Boots don’t have much flex in the sole and are a bit on the heavy side but very well made and am sure will last many hunting seasons. I didn’t not like the feel of the insoles at all and will be wearing the boots without them.
these boots are very comfortable right out of the box. I received the boots 2 days before a week long hunting trip. No break in period, but the boots felt great. Problem is, my feet got wet just walking through the dew covered grass, and the sole is coming off. I will be sending them back hopefully getting a refund!!
Third pair off Sierra boots. They are a good product. As with the Fort Hood and Acadia style the insole lacks any real arch support and is the only reason for not rounding out this rating to a perfect five.
I have had my pair of Sierras in B width for a year now. I did go up 1/2 size due to being tight in the toes.Bootsstill going strong sole about 1/2 worn. Soles have good traction except they do seem to be a little slick when it gets down to freezing outside on hard surfaces. I alternate between these and Ft lewis boots that are 12 yrs old on 3rd resole. I wear them in year round, 200g insulation gets a little hot when temps get in the 90's. I use the Danner polish and water proofer.
Very light weight was so surprised at that, compared to my other Danner boots, only thing I wished they came with was some insoles, and a pull on tab on the rear to help get them on. But other than that what can I say they are Danner boots built in the good ole USA 🇺🇸... and quality boots .. and they will go great with the other 10 or so pair of Danner boots I have ..
These are boots are beautifully made, incredibly comfortable and warm. My only negative is that the sole appears to be slightly too hard making them quite slippy on icy roads. With a different sole these would be the greatest boots ever made.
I have had these boots for about 15 years and they have performed past my expectations. I am sending in for recrafting to basically replace everything but the liner. If you want a quality boot that last a long time for the money you spend you will not find a better boot. There are three things that sold me on my first pair before even wearing the in the field. First they are made in the U.S.A., second they have a sewn on sole and third they can be sent in for recrafting or repaired. Just think I bought my first pair for 280 dollars 15 years ago and after recrafting for $170 dollars I will have basically a new pair of boots for half of what a new pair cost today $340 dollars. You do the math.
They seriously missed the mark on the rubber sole compound. Extremely slippery on hard packed snow and cold surfaces such as your deck. I find that I'm very nervous in these walking across the frozen Wisconsin ground for fear of slipping. Awesome fit, comfort, construction, and style. The 200 gram insulation seems just right whether working in chilly buildings or outside.
I was working on a range in Nevada and the Navy EOD guys took me to town to buy a new pair of boots. I have worn these year-round for range work, construction, and winter snow for twenty years now. By far the most comfortable and durable boots I ever owned. I bought some lighter Danner boots for summer work, but these are the ones I take on the road. I have been using and abusing them so they aren't so pretty anymore, but I take care of them and have only ever had to replace the laces. These boots are superior and I recommend them to everyone who asks.
This is the second pair of these boots I have owned. The first lasted over 20 years. In terms of cost per year, this is the least expensive boot I have owned.
I use them for hard upland hunting, many miles per day in swamps and fields, although not as many as 20 years ago on the first pair. The new boots were comfortable right out of the box - no break-in required. I found myself wearing them all night back at the camp. I forgot they were on. They are waterproof until you go over the top.
They tend to be narrow. If like me, your feet have gotten wider with age, buy the next wider size. Length seems to be spot-on with other shoes and boots I have found to fit.
You have to determine if boots should be disposable or long lasting. Sierra's are nearly forever boots. If I traded my Sierra's in for disposable boots I would get a less expensive comfortable lighter weight boot every few years. Cool, no more ankle weights and something new more often. Danner is clearly working on the weight issue with other models. The other thing I don't care for is I hate lacing the Sierra's up and frequently reach for my Crater Rims or Mountain Trails or even my Zags instead.
All that said I am happy to have and wear my Sierra's. They are particularly good in a foot or two of snow or some deep wetlands. I have wore them in extreme MN cold too and my feet never get cold. Perhaps the two best things I ware them for is their great looks and to get some extra exercise. You won't need any ankle weights with these!
