Pronghorn 8" Realtree Xtra 400G

Style No. 45009

We learned from our elders. We listened to our peers. And we crafted the fourth generation Pronghorn - a boot that we are confident will continue the tradition we know and love.


Product Details


With a nod to our past, we rebuilt a legend. Bringing back our popular CamoHide™ leather and building on our proven TERRA FORCE® technology, we updated the design for a more streamlined and lightweight profile. The all-leather toe and heel cap protect against wear. We chose a new last and opened the toe box to create a wider platform and better fit. The waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® liner keeps feet dry throughout the hunt. We added an Ortholite® footbed with triple layer cushioning for improved comfort. A new outsole retains all the performance of previous generations with a combination of rubber compounds that perform in slick mud and rugged underbrush. No matter where your hunt takes you, this is the boot you can count on to perform.

How it Fits

This athletic fitting last offers great heel capture and an anatomical forefoot that gives more room in the toe box. Fits true to size.


  • Durable, waterproof full-grain CamoHide™ leather upper with rugged and lightweight 1000 Denier nylon
  • Realtree® Xtra® camo utilizes a robust light and dark pattern plus a multi-directional layout that creates an incredibly 3D effect. Good for all times of the day and year
  • Full-grain leather toe and heel cap

  • 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® lining

I bought a pair of Pronghorns last year (13 EE, which is the "wide" ones, because the 13D were too narrow) and liked them. Broke them in, wore them bowhunting in a swamp, Elk hunting at 10,000' and November Deer hunting in 20 to 40 degree weather. Good, but not great. However, ALL of the improvements to the newly redesigned Pronghorn make these boots TOP NOTCH. All of my "Pros" listed have improved this boot to be the best fitting boot and most comfortable I have ever tried on. I will caution however about the changes and the effect they have had on the sizing. I naturally asked for what i had in last years' model (13EE), and found them to be TOO WIDE!!! Which has never happened to me. So i then tried on the regular width (13D) and they fit perfect. It's my opinion that the "widened toe box" and "new athletic fit" changed the boot to the point that guys like me who always wore a wide before (in shoes and boots) don't need it in this particular boot.

That being said, for picky people like me, i have a WARNING. Lasts years' model did not have a speed loop "set back" on the ankle area from the other ones above it. Other brands of boots i have owned that have had the "set back ankle speed loop" make for a better fitting boot, especially in the mountains when a boot needs to fit snug in all of the right places. The newly designed Pronghorn is supposed to have that 4th speed loop on the ankles, but if you buy them today (or the next 3-4 weeks) you will get a pair of boots without them. All of the pictures online, in stores, and even on the box, show the ankle speed loops. However, after talking to Danner customer service about the issue, i was informed what is going on. Apparently the initial test boot included the ankle loop, but was placed too far back and was uncomfortable. A last minute decision was made to produce the boot anyways, but without that ankle speed loops. Then an alternately placed (moved it forward a little) ankle speed loop was tested, and found to be great. However, the first run of boots was already in production and completed without ANY ankle speed loops. Hence all of the temporarily visually deceptive pictures. I am told by Danner the second run, which will include the ankle speed loops, should be available for purchase in late September. They are discussing whether or not to differentiate the "style numbers" of the non-ankle loop boot versus the soon to come boot that includes the ankle loops. So be warned, that what you purchase right now, and potentially in the future (if they don't change the style number) will not be quite what you think it is. All that being said, my remedy with last year's boot was to try to lace them up as tight as possible so i had minimal foot slippage (inside the boot) so as to avoid blisters. The new model felt "pretty good" without the ankle loops, but once again i had to tighten them up, and i was wishing i just had the ankle loops to get the proper fit. Danner customer service has been great to work with while i get honest information from them in order to get the product that I want. Unfortunately, it may arrive only 1-2 weeks before my elk hunt......

Pronghorn 400g

  • Long Lasting
  • No Eyelet Problems

  • none

Best Uses

  • Comfortable For Hikes
  • Hunting
  • Outside yard work

I bought these several years ago and I still use them. Great boots! They have been durable. They are warm enough for Southern Illinois winters and at the same time don't make my feet to hot in the more mild weather. Still waterproof after all this time. Much more comfortable than the Rockies I used to have. I buy only Danner boots because of these.

Best piece of hunting equipment I own

Best Uses

  • Camping
  • Hiking
  • Hunting

I have worn these hunting boots for 7 years. Bowhunting elk through the Colorado Rockies, horseback hunts in Idaho and late season whitetail hunts in Northern Washington on the Canadian border.
These boots are incredibly comfortable for all day hiking, solid support for rocky terrain and keep your feet dry. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Other hunting boots are a waste of money. These will outlast them all.

Danner - Bring back the old Pronghorns

By Mountain Hunter

from Petaluma, Ca (I hunt Nevada and Utah too


  • Nice looks


  • Ankle Uncomfortably Tight
  • Toe Area For Hobbits Only

Best Uses

  • No

I used to buy Pronghorns every season from when they came out until 2009. All of the guys I hunt with had, and loved Pronghorns. Ever since Danner changed the design sometime around 2010, they haven't got it right.

Every time I have tried to buy the newest type of Pronghorns, they fit terrible. They have either not made it out of the store because they were so uncomfortable (HUGE toe box with too much room to hunt steep country and grabbing onto the ankle / lower leg too tight) or I have had to send them back.

I have tried at least two new generation Pronghorns. Bottom line, my hunting crew and I have had to go with another brand.

Danner - Please bring back original Pronghorns. I'll beg if I have to. They were the best boots I ever had.

I have many pairs of Danner's but the Pronghorn's are my favorite boot for hunting and casual wear, hence the color selection. I hunt back east, WI every year and the conditions are much different than western WA. The pair I use now are going on 5 hard years of snow ❄, ice, marsh and swamp hunting. These boots have many miles and are so comfortable and tough as the day I bought them. I would not hesitate to buy another pair.

The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because I have another pair that is starting to leak at the sole and body of shoe.

I wish they would have these made by stitching instead of gluing. The reason I say that is because a stitched sole Danner could repair but you cannot repair a sole that is glued.

But I will still buy the Pronghorn's in a heartbeat. Awesome boot.
