Tips for the Perfect Fit

  • Measure both feet. If one foot is slightly larger than the other, select a size that fits the larger of the two.
  • Consider the type of socks you’ll be wearing with your boot. For thicker socks, you may want to select a half size larger than you normally wear.
  • When you do receive your boots, we recommend first wearing them indoors for a few hours to ensure they’re the right fit.

Free Return Shipping
Rest assured that if the boot you receive doesn’t fit correctly, we pay for return shipping back to us. You can order with confidence knowing return shipping is always on us.

      I bought these boots at the beginning of the season and have hunted every weekend in these boots from sun up to sun down. They feel like im wearing a sneaker! I can sneak all the way upto my stand and cross through small creeks because of the gortex waterproof liner they put in. Best boots in my opinion. great for the money they will last me for seasons to come.

      Best boot out there!

            I bought these boots to replace another pair of hunting boots. I was instantly blown away by the support and comfort these boots have over any other boot I've owned. They are unmatched when it comes to climbing rocky hills! I have bad ankles, so I was highly impressed with how the uppers are flexible, but do a great job preventing any roll over. I felt more stable in these boots over rough terrain, than any other shoes/boots I've ever owned. The tread pattern is really smart. You can tell Danner understands movement of the foot while hunting. They don't slip on wet rocks at all, and are really good with side to side motion as well. I wore them out the past several weeks in 28-36 degree temps and they stayed very comfortable when I was moving, but after about an hour sitting still in the tree stand in 28 degree temps my toes got a little cold (even with quality wool socks). It wasn't very bad by any means, it was just slightly uncomfortable until I got moving again. That said, I would rather my feet be slightly on the cold side than hot and sweaty in those type of conditions. I was able to stay out for 4-5 hour spans just fine. I wouldn't wear them in the summer, because they do get warm in more temperate climates, but all in all, I would still buy them all over again for fall and winter hunting. The stability, support, traction, and comfort are absolutely unmatched. I wish they had the same setup in a summer/hot boot, and other color options.

            Man I LOVE these boots!

            By ALTurkeyBum

            Pros

            • Comfortable
            • Light

            Cons

            • Lower Speed Lace Tight

            Best Uses

            • General Woods Work
            • Hiking
            • Hunting

            I picked up a pair of 400 gram insulated High Grounds at a sporting goods store, wore them a few times, and was so impressed I ordered two more pairs from Danner in uninsulated and 1000 gram. They are unbelievably comfortable right out of the box, are relatively light and have great support.

            I hunt deer and turkeys around 60 days a year in some pretty steep terrain in Tennessee and Alabama, and have had dozens of boots over the last 30 years. Danners have always been top notch quality and these are no exception.

            I do have two minor gripes. One is that the lower pair of the "speed lace" eyelets are very tight on the laces. I think this is what Danner calls their "Lock & Load" lacing system - it keeps the laces in the lower eyelets tight while you string up the rest of the speed laces. That's great, but you really have to yank on the laces to get them loose and this can be kind of a pain when trying to get the boots off after a long day (and with a sore back). Plus, if you ever have to replace the laces you'll have to be careful about the diameter or they may not fit in the eyelet. I'm thinking of using a screwdriver to see if I can pry them open a little.

            The second thing is that the "gusset" fabric between the tongue and the boot doesn't go all the way to the top of the tongue. This means the boot is not waterproof all the way to the top, so as far as wading in water you really have a 6 inch boot instead of an 8 inch. Danner probably designed it this way to make the boot more comfortable without all that excess fabric between the tongue and the boot, but something to think about if you have to deal with a lot of water.

            But hey, I can live with those things for boots that fit and feel like these. Do yourself a favor and try a pair.

            I was looking for a good pair of hunting boots for spring turkey & early bow season. I wanted something that was waterproof but still breathed well and would not have my feet overheating. I tried on a bunch & finally came across the Danner High Ground in 400 gram. I am a size ten wide & I have worn many boots thru the years. But these boots are by far the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. They are 100% waterproof crossing creeks, really great fitting and light, not too hot when I was dragging my big eight out this Sept when it was 75 degrees, still comfortable tonight on stand when it was 40 degrees with just a light wool sock on, and more then quiet enough for me to sneak out of the house without waking the ole ball & chain at 5 am. Awesome boots. and I couldn't be happier with them! hopefully they wont discontinue them any time soon. Get a pair, you wont be disappointed.
