Im always hard to buy for when it comes to Christmas presents.
My parents usually get me something around $200 range.

What’s is the best hunting/hiking boot around that price range?
Is Danner still a good brand? Any other suggestions?

Texas hill country mostly. Something I can wear all season, maybe just change socks depending on temperature

I already have Chippewa snake boots.

I would like to stay away from the Academy type brands as I have learned that they will often fall apart after a couple of years. Hoping to get something well made..

I'm a big fan of Muck boots, they keep my feet warm and dry.

Can't really go wrong with Danner. Just make sure you maintain the leather with something good like beeswax. Also a Muck fan but that is more for ice fishing or waterfowling.


Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie, cheat or steal. These things are for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. And never allow thoughts of gain to lead you into the pursuit of evil.

Danner Pronghorns are my go to boot. For Texas I have uninsulated and just wear wool socks on colder days.

Hard to beat Danner.

Kennetrek also makes some good all season hunting boots.


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

I picked up a pair of Irish Setter insulated boots 4-5 years ago that I really like. For use in Texas, I'd go with the non insulated style.4

La Sportiva Nucleo. No break in period, waterproof, the most comfortable hunting boots I have ever worn. Awesome boot. Did great up in Colorado on a Mule Deer hunt.

In wide and regular.

^^^This in the non insulated is what I wear. Wool socks if it is real cold. ^^^ price is around $220-$230

Danner sharp tail is under $200 and worth looking at. Not built as rugged as the Irish setter Whammer7 mentioned.

I think both are made in Vietnam.
