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.

      Comments about Danner Ridgemaster GTX 400G Hunting Boots:

      Wear-all-day comfortable right out of the box.
      400 gram Thinsulate just right for cold November stalking/hunting.
      A little tight getting foot into boot, a fair trade-off for full height waterproofing.

      Very Good Boot

      By Hunter Chris

      from Syracuse, NY

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Comfortable

      Cons

      • None so far

      Best Uses

      • All around boot

      Comments about Danner Ridgemaster GTX 400G Hunting Boots:

      I wear these boots everyday for work, hiking and hunting. They are very comfortable but seem a touch wider than my old Original Style Pronghorns. Not as initially comfortable as the Pronghorns but are getting better the longer I wear them. Very pleased that I can finally purchase a MADE IN USA boot. Only had them a few weeks so I'm hoping they hold up as well as my old Pronghorn.

      Comments about Danner Ridgemaster GTX 400G Hunting Boots:

      This is hands down the best boot I've ever used. We have a lot of crazy weather here in Oregon so a waterproof boot is required, traction is great especially in the snow which is suprising considering the tread depth. Overall comfort is perfection my feet don't sweet even in 100 degree weather or long days in the shop. I'm on my feet 14 hrs a day and I can tell you these perform. In fact I threw away my merrell Moab shoes cause I prefer these boots. :)

      Sizing Inconsistent

            Comments about Danner Ridgemaster GTX 400G Hunting Boots:

            Tried a pair of these at a local sporting goods store and the right boot fit great and had me sold. Then I tried the left boot on which was tight and had a raised area in the arch making it very uncomfortable. Unfortunately the store didn't have a another pair the same size. So I ordered online and they came directly from Danner. The anticipation and excitement of new boots was quickly killed by the fact that these boots fit way too big as compared to the same size and model I had tried on before. For being "Made in America" they fit no different than the half as expensive Pronghorns.

            Comments about Danner Ridgemaster GTX 400G Hunting Boots:

            I purchased the boots in late May and have been hiking with them in preperation for a Dall Sheep hunt in August. Both boots were pinching the inside top of my foot. The left has straightened out but the right feels as if the inner material is bulging downward and poking my foot where the leather strip on the inside of the foot is just below the ankle. I especially feel it when I go down hill and it is very annoying.
            I love my older Pronghorns so I am disapointed in these Ridge Masters at this time.I wear them whenever I can but the problem persists even with lighter socks.
