Worth the wait
For close to two decades, the Pronghorn boot has been a trusted cornerstone in the Danner hunt line. Any update to the Pronghorn comes with a lot of responsibility to our customers who rely on this iconic boot. As such, the fifth generation is the culmination of many years of Pronghorn history and today’s cutting-edge footwear technology. Built on our TERRA FORCE® NEXT™ platform, the Pronghorn delivers the all-day comfort and stability that make the day’s haul easier on your feet. Full-grain leather that’s passed our exacting quality tests forms the upper around our proven 851 last. To cope with unpredictable weather in the field, we built the Pronghorn with a GORE-TEX waterproof liner that keeps moisture out and lets your feet breathe. And for those headed out into cold climates, the Pronghorn is also available with PrimaLoft® insulation.

Five generations of technology
Just because a boot was top of the line doesn’t guarantee it stays there. The drive to improve has to be constant. For the fifth generation of the Pronghorn, we applied the latest technology and premium components to ensure it continues to be the top of the line hunting boot you demand. For this generation, we upgraded to our new TERRA FORCE® NEXT™ platform with a series of proven components that work together to ensure support, comfort and responsiveness. A bi-fit board adds improved stability, while the Vibram® SPE midsole provides a combination of superior cushioning and durability. We then paired the midsole with a combined internal and external shank system that provides arch support and excellent torsion control. All told, 5 new layers of technology were combined for our most comfortable and supportive platform on the Pronghorn yet.

The best protection for the worst weather
The ingredients you put into a boot dictate the quality of the finished product. That’s part of why we’re so rigorous in our components’ standards. With the Pronghorn, we sought out the premier technology available to build a boot ready for any weather you might run into. Industry-leading experts at GORE-TEX provide the waterproof membrane to keep your feet dry from inside and out. Premium, oiled nubuck leather gives the boot a richer look and feel over previous generations. And when the forecast is frigid, we opted to offer PrimaLoft® insulation to bring the best weight-to-warmth ratios to the Pronghorn.

A return to the favorite fit
When it came time to build the fifth generation Pronghorn, we returned to the classic 851 last that the original was built on. This last provides a more athletic fit, designed for superior performance when you need it. Listening to our customers and their real-world needs always helps guide us on the right path. So, we combined the proven fit of the 851 last with our TERRA FORCE® NEXT™ platform for increased support and stability. To finish it off, we worked with Vibram® to create a premium, all-new Pronghorn outsole to provide reliable traction on rugged terrain. Year after year, we hone the Pronghorn to be the best boot you can hunt in. Proven time and again.
