Quick Overview

Details

Hunt further. Hunt faster.

As we approached the design and development of an entirely new hunting boot, we kept one word in mind – endurance. We worked to build a boot that allows a hunter to hunt longer with less foot fatigue, hunt faster and quieter as they track their prey, and maintain the longevity and durability that we demand out of every product that bears the mark of Danner.

Athletic fit

Borrowing from some of our latest developments in hiking, we constructed the High Ground off of the DT4 last that provides a tighter heel pocket with a wider toe box, alongside a sleek and streamlined fit. This development allowed us to create a hunting boot with more flexibility and less weight.

The perfect balance

Creating a lightweight and flexible product is easy, but creating one that maintains the support and stability needed on rugged terrain is a whole different story. Utilizing a cement construction we were able to reduce the weight while still integrating an aggressive outsole that provides support and stability over a variety of terrain.

The mark of Danner

Before any product obtains the Danner stamp we ensure that it has been crafted to the highest standard. That is why we crafted the High Ground with an oiled nubuck leather, a 900 Denier nylon, and premium components like a GORE-TEX liner - ensuring that it lives up to the durability demanded from the Danner name.
Oiled Nubuck & 900 Denier Polyester Upper
We take our top-grain, velvet-like nubuck and oil it to improve its water resistance. This leather upper is extremely durable, while offering a shorter and more comfortable break-in period. It's then paired with abrasion-resistant, camo-dyed polyester to reduce the overall weight of the boot.
GORE-TEX® (GTX)
100% waterproof and breathable, GORE-TEX® liners ensure that no water gets in, while allowing sweat and moisture to get out.
Lock & Load Lace System
Ghillies across the forefoot give a secure fit, while locking speed hooks at the top provide quick, easy lacing.
Realtree® Xtra® Green Camo
Realtree Xtra Green pattern is designed to blend with habitats in all variations of green, especially those found in early fall and mid-to-late spring.
Danner Talon Outsole
Extremely lightweight, athletic performance in rugged conditions.
How It Fits
This boot is built on our DT4 last. This last provides an athletic fit with a tighter heel pocket and a wider toe box. The sleek, streamlined last is excellent for on or off trail hiking.

My old TFX Hunters finally gave up the ghost this summer while scouting for archery elk season early Sept. Wanted a new pair of lt.wt. boots and saw these on the website. Was leaning toward the low uninsulated pronghorn or pathfinder EE's which fit me well. The factory store didn't yet have the high ground in house, had to order a pair. Well a D width came in and I tried it on, not real tight so I fig'd the EE's would be perfect. Got the EE and its a nice snug secure fit right out of the box! This boot will not reguire a break in period, the new upper lock lacing is a nice feature. Hope to get out this wknd and put them to the test before start of season. These should be a "run and gun" boot.I think I bought the very first pair anywhere!

I chucker hunt in Nevada, thought I would try a lighter more flexible boot. Half way through the season the soles have lost there traction and now I can feel every rock. These boots are not good for this rocky terrain the soles wear out fast. I have gone back to the Pronghorns they hold up much much better and now they have brought back the all leather boot that's even better yet.

      Comments about Danner High Ground 8" Realtree Xtra Green:

      I'm a elk hunter and really liked the boots- light weight and comfortable. But two pairs failed at the seams in the first season and I received new ones and the 3rd failed at the eyelets and are not usable after 20 days. I was offered a 25 % discount on another pair but I will go to another brand.

      Not waterproof

      By AmmoChief

      from Burkburnett TX

      Comments about Danner High Ground 8" Realtree Xtra Green:

      Its a shame boot manufacturers can claim their products are waterproof when in fact they are not. My pig hunt was cut short because my feet were soaking wet from chasing pigs across a dew soaked wheat field. I have come to realize the only waterproof boot is a rubber boot, but they are cumbersome and hot when running and gunning.
