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.

High Ground Indeed.

    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 went on a serious hunt for a good pair of boots this year and I found them in the High Grounds. Out of the box they were very comfortable and lightweight (unlike the full-leather Pronghorns I wore around for a while before returning them). I've only hunted four days so far but I stepped in every mud puddle and creek I came across and so far they're waterproof. I walk a lot and these fit my hunting style very well. If you carry a heavy pack, they do not provide much ankle support but that's not an issue for me. Coming in at the lower end of my price range was also an unexpected positive. I cant say enough good about them. They seem to be great quality, but time will tell…

    Very Pleased

    Pros

    • Ltwt Breathable H2o Pr

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Warm Temperate Hunting

      Was not disappointed in this product. Hunted around and in Indian Heaven for the early Wa. archery season. Rain, dew, hot temps, stream crossings and general scrambling. The sole has a grippy micro texture that holds well to rocks and logs. Very comfortable. A one day break in; by day 2 they were old friends. I really like the upper lace lock feature. You can set the tension you desire and it holds.

      Good fit, comfortable, poor durability

      By Dave

      Pros

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Very comfortable and good fit.
            Do not hold up well:
            1. Fabric eyelets have failed, Danner need to replace with something more durable
            2. Upper fabric failed shortly after eyelets at area where front of boot bends.
            This would be a fantastic boot if Danner put in some quality improvements.

            Design flaw

            By Koodog

            Verified Reviewer

            Pros

            • Comforable Light Weight

            Cons

            • Bad Eyelet Design

            Best Uses

            • Hunting hiking

            I really love these boots. Comfortable right out of the box. No break in time needed. Straight up one of the most comfortable pair of boots I've ever owned. My all time fav is still the pronghorn.....I own 3 sets.
            However, I'm very disappointed by a bad design in the fabric eyelets on the bottom 4 sets of the boots. These eyelets have ripped out on my boots within less than 1 year. One would think it a no brainer to use leather or steel instead of fabric for an eyelet, as lacing is a high friction event. Stay away from this design issue and you'll be happy. Had I kept receipt and original packaging I could have sent them in for replacement or repair. Sucks to have a real nice pair of boots that are now useless and have at minimum another few years of life left in them. No joy here.
