Product Details

This boot will fit light and comfortably but has tough features like an ultra-durable, oiled nubuc leather and 900 Denier nylon upper, 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX lining, 1000G Thinsulate™ Ultra Insulation, and the Danner Talon dirt- and rock-gripping outsole.

How it Fits

Not good for Elk hunting, great for warm weather hiking

By C.O.

from Wyoming

Pros

  • Lightweight,good traction and very supportive

Cons

  • My feet froze

Best Uses

  • Warm weather hiking

Comments about Danner High Ground 8" Realtree Xtra 1000G:

I hunted the Rockies for a week in October. My feet froze. I wore Smart wool socks from 1 pair to three pair. What surprised me was my feet were cold even when hiking. 1000 grams of thinsulate. If anyone has any idea's please share your thoughts. A good warm weather hiking boot.

Thanks

Chuck

Comments about Danner High Ground 8" Realtree Xtra 1000G:

I looked for some time before I bought these boots. I am always skeptical ordering boots on line before trying them on. Danner boots in general have always fit me well so I purchaced a pair of these boots. They have surpassed all expectations I had for them. They are warm in low activity cold weather. And also my feet really didn't sweat when I am active in cold weather either . Wears well, fit like a gym shoe .

High ground

By Blackbird

from Colorado

Comments about Danner High Ground 8" Realtree Xtra 1000G:

I origionally bought the steadfast boots but they rubbed on my outer ankle bone when side hill walking and caused alot of localized pain. I have had problems with this in other shoes as well, peoples feet are different my ankle bone is a bit higher i think. So i ordered the high grounds to see if they caused the same problem and so i got to try them side by side.

Overall comfort...both shoes are quilte flexible much like a high top tennis shoe so id consider both quite comfortable right out of the box, but the highground seemed to fit my foot alot better and more snugly, my foot felt like it was moving in the shoe less ( both were 9.5) than in the steadfast.

My only gripe with the highgrounds is the fabric lace loops( the steadfast uses metal grommets which seem bombproof). On the HG instead of grommets on the lower laces there are small loops of 1/4" lightweight poly/nylon webbing that the laces thread through. They do not appear renforced in any way and everytime you tighten your laces ( evertime you lace them up), the laces rub the webbing...and in general, rope in motion rubbing directly on webbing is always a bad idea. I'd be willing to wager that this will be the first part of the shoe to go.

The HG didnt cause the issue with my ankle bone and are the most comfortable boot ive ever worn...think waterproof insulated high top basketball shoe. They are super comfortable right out of the box. Ive been wearing them as a day to day shoe some to break them in and they are becoming even better as they break in. I did stand in about 6" of standing water for a min or two and my socks were dry as a bone.

I do wish they had been avail in an insulated version in something besides camo...come on, like the elk youre stalking is gonna see you cause your shoes are brown. Theres not alot, if any, options for a lightweight hiking boot (thats also insulated) unless you buy a hunting boot. Danner, your selling yourselves short by only offering these in camo.

Warm and comfortable

By Rosscoe

from Troy, Alabama

Pros

  • Fit great
  • Not too bulky
  • warm

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Hunting

    Comments about Danner High Ground 8" Realtree Xtra 1000G:

    These boots are great! Very warm but not too bulky, I hate the moon boot feel and these wear like an unisulated boot but are incredibly warm. These are my cold season hunting boots hands down. I have a few other pairs of Danners and always order wide so I have plenty of sock room to go with my stubby feet and as always these fit great. I've been a Danner fan for a while now and these are another great pair just a whole lot warmer than my others.

    my new cold weather activity boot-comfortable out of the box

    By KC

    from Upstate, NY

    Pros

    • comfortable - right out of the box

    Cons

    • Runs a little tight

    Best Uses

      Comments about Danner High Ground 8" Realtree Xtra 1000G:

      comfortable right out of the box, run a little on the small size. am sneaker size 7, bought these in 8 and they are comfortable with regular socks at 1 size larger for me. heavy socks would render them a little tight in my case. My favorite daily activity boot when the weather turns cold.
