Anybody own them? Are they any good?

    The American made ones are. I had a set of Ft Lewis boots that lasted forever, and my hiking boots are Danners.

    They are excellent. I have a set of non-insulated Pronghorns that have been used for several seasons now and held up beautifully to Western hunts/regular season whitetail hunts.

    Recently, my wife decided to borrow these boots for yard work and didn't feel like tying the shoe laces since they don't really fit her. The laces got shredded accordingly from her stepping on them and were unusable. I called Danner to get replacements, assuming I would have to buy them. Nope: they gave me *two* free sets of laces, a handwritten card with an apology that the original color style was not available (like I cared) and a free Danner bottle opener. Yeah...they will be getting my business again.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Thanks guys. I will feel better pulling the trigger on a pair. I usually buy Wolverine, and am unfamiliar with the Danner product.

    Danners are good boots.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I'm on my third pair. Even the Chinese made ones are good.

    I have two pair with 6 inch tops. I just about wore the first pair out, but they're still good if I don't expect snow or need the waterproof capabilities. There's a tear near the toe that probably ruined the waterproofing.

    The first pair of Dannes I owned are Elk Hunters I ordered from Cabelas. They have 10 inch tops, and are insulated with hob nob soles. I have had the for over 10 years. The only problem I have with them is that they are very hard to put on due to the tall tops. Danner has told me I can stuff newsprint in the boot and that will expand the a bit. I haven't tried that, but probably should.

    My advice is that you can't go wrong with Danner.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    I sucked it up and spent the $ on some insulated Pronghorns, I like them, replaced a pair of Wolverines that I liked also but were discontinued.

    Thanks again all.

    IIRC Danner had some issues with their first gen Chinese boots with the soles not staying glued to the tops. I believe those QC issues are well behind them and usually when you get someone putting down Danner their experience goes back to those first attempts at a more price accessible boot. Their latest imported stuff and their made is the use boots are world class.

    I was thinking that was a Rocky boots problem. Or was the Rocky boot issue that the soles were melting or disintegrating after a couple of years?

    I have a pair of 12W that rub my toe a little wonky....if you'd like to try them out, PM a shipping address.

    I kept looking at that pic and something was wrong.

    Had to look at a pair of boots, your laces are backwards :p

    You are right over left except for the first two on the left boot.

    I had a pair of Strikers and they were the best overall duty boots I have ever had. I made the mistake last year of getting a pair of Rockys when I moved back to patrol. I will go back to Danner.

    I love my Haix, they have held up longer than any boot I've ever owned.
