    I love UA gear, but not their footwear. All my football spikes and various other types of footwear seem to work great but open up at the seems not too long into using them. Just thought I'd throw that out there. Looking at the Pronghorn GTX personally

    Anybody had or have Vasque boots? I got to try some wide Wasatch GTXs on this weekend and they actually fit.

    They look pretty stout, but curious if anybody has any experience with them.

    I have hunted with the Danner pronghorn last couple years and haven't had any issues.

    I've worn Vasque and liked them, a little heavy but a good boot. I have worn Danner Pronghorns for several years and they are a great boot for the money.

    Ok guys. I have the older pronghorns before they "redesigned" them a few years back. I bought an extra pair when I saw they changed them, but now I am needing a new pair.

    Who here remembers the old design, used that boot, and has also worn the new design? Are the new designed boots as well made and still worth the money?
    I hunt because......

    I just bought a lightweight pair of boots by Wolverine. I like them so far, they have an aggressive tread and about 1 1/2 lbs. ea. I had a pair of Rockys, but wore them out in a couple of years.

    I wore out 4 pairs of the older pronghorns. Loved them..... (Still have one pair.) My new "redesigned" style are good but, I preferred the other style. The new style is just a little wider in the last. (good if you have a wider foot) They are also a little longer. I find them a little clumsier and I'm less agile, boulder bounding...... The sole is more aggressive than the previous model and clogs up a little more with mud and such. Again, I still continue to use the new pronghorns but, with my high arches and narrow feet, I preferred the older style. Your milage may vary......

    Have you seen the new Bridger Ridge from Kenetrek? Those looks like they'd be right at home in the early season on just about any mountain.
