I am stumped and looking for real world intel on a good pair of hunting boots. I have worn out my old faithful boots. My ankles are pretty well destroyed and I need to give up slip on boots for something with laces. I need something that will be comfortable, cool in the heat and warm in cold weather - with good and obvious ankle support. Anybody got a brand or name to research?

Pretty sure you're not going to find that Holy Grail. On many days, I wear insulated boots on morning hunts and snake boots on the afternoon hunts when it warms up. But here come the Danner Pronghorn fan boys in 3, 2, 1...

Pronghorns were on the radar, but I also like the boots with the BOA cable laces.

Take this with a grain of salt, as I'm sure those BOA cable lace type boots have come a long ways but I'm still scared of them. Back in the day when my buddies and I were big in to wakeboarding, there were a couple of companies that came out with the BOA lace style bindings. 2 friends of mine got a set and both of them were done with after a year. One, the cable broke and on the other, the ratcheting knob stripped out. That's been probably close to ~10 years ago, but still left me with a bad taste about them.

Zamberlans, nothing better in my opinion. I have an insulated pair of the Cabelas Meindels which are nice but no way near anything close to the Zamberlans. A lot of folks say Kennetrek but I have never tried a pair on. Some also say Lowa.

Boots I have tried that I don't like or don't fit "me" well are, Vasque, Danner, Asolo, & La Sportiva. These are are quality boot makers, no knock on them their. They just don't fit me well.

Did a little research and tried on what I could find. Purchased the cabelas meindl Denali with IQ. Just hiking in them for the last month preparing for Colorado mule deer and so far very comfortable and seem well made. I have never owned high dollar boots before but I am glad I spent the money on these at this point.

I went to my Red Wing store a while back, ended up with a pair of Irish Setter Vaprtrek boots with orthotic-type insoles. Very comfortable. Between the work boots and the hunting boots I bet I tried on about 15 pair.

Danner USMC RAT boots

These are what I wear. They are fantastic. They are waterproof, comfortable, made in USA, and tough as nails. If they're good enough for the marines, they're good enough for me. I love mine. I got them a lot cheaper on Ebay, new in the box.

I like my danners smile

I don't think they are the end all boots. But they are one of the few makers that have wide cuts. If you have wide feet it makes a huge differences

First no boot fits the same for everyone.

Second what you do in those boots means a lot.

If you put 100 rough miles a year on a boot, I'd look at a stiffer sole from zamberlians, lowa, kennetrek, and hanwag.
