Product Description

The Danner Pronghorn hiking boot is well-known in the Pacific Northwest for its dependability, ruggedness and overall value. By adding a calk sole to this boot, Hoffman's provides you with a lightweight alternative to more traditional, heavy all-leather calk boots. Plus, you get the added benefit of a waterproof liner. The Pronghorn calk also features a cushioned insole, durable midsole and a steel shank for support. A leather and Cordura upper produces a lightweight yet durable design.

  • Waterproof liner
  • Lightweight for easy mobility
  • Leather and Cordura upper
  • Replaceable calks
  • Half-sizes and customer widths available as special order

* Although waterproof failure is rare, neither Hoffman's nor Danner will warranty the waterproofness of this boot.
** This product is not eligible for any current promotions.

Are the calks on a removable sole? In other words, can these be worn exactly as the normal Pronghorn boots as well? 
1 Answer
They are removable, however the threaded inserts will remain in place, so the grip from the rubber tread will likely be compromised.

from Fulton, IL asked:

On your Danner Pronghorn boots are the steel spikes for traction?  And do the cause any problem when climbing a tree stand?
1 Answer
Yes, the steel spikes, called "calks" (pronounced as "corks") are for traction in the woods on fallen timber and generally slick terrain.  We can't necessarily comment about climbing a tree stand.  The spikes will likely slip if there is metal-to-metal contact.  They're really designed for digging into wood.

from Wilderville asked:

If I wear a 8.5 in boot size should I order a 9? I have heard that Danner runs a little small.
1 Answer
We have not heard this from our customers, and in checking with Hoffman, they could not confirm this either. Overall we have heard they run pretty true to size.

from Montfort WI asked:
December 25, 2017
Should I use waterproof spray on these boots?
1 Answer
GORE-TEX does "...not recommend the use of waterproofing waxes or greases as they can seriously affect the footwear's breathability." Hoffman, as the manufacturer, is okay with the use of waterproof sprays but they recommend you find one advertised as being compatible with GORE-TEX.

This is not a product rating, as I have not had time to wear these caulks yet. But I did receive the boots from Westech Rigging quickly and with no problems. A forester friend of mine says he really likes the boots, too, so I'm optimistic they will be a good product.
