Top 10 Best Lightweight Hunting Boots

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Lightweight Hunting Boot

1. Danner Pronghorn 8" GTX Uninsulated-M Lightweight Hunting Boot

Editor's Impressions

"Buy these you wont regret it."

I highly recommend and will absolutely buy these again! He also doesn't experience foot pain like many diabetics. I prefer these over tennis shoes in the winter hands down. Your feet will have plenty of room but order your size. Only complaint is the lugs don't grab the lace really well.

2. Irish Setter 2875 Vaprtrek-M Lightweight Hunting Boot

Editor's Impressions

"Eyelets are spaced out well."

They are darker in color but still a very nice pair of boots. Had them for about 10 months and have hiked a few times. I would have no problem in making a recommendation to a friend. I think they will keep your feet very warm in cold weather. I live in Wyoming where the country is rough.

3. Danner Pronghorn 8" GTX 400G-M Lightweight Hunting Boot

Editor's Impressions

"Kept my feet warm and dry!"

Thanks to the leather, they look brand new again. First time I wore them I walked about two miles through woods. Had a Danner air last 25 years with two resoling! Good for hunting, going to the range, and every day wear. I had a pair before and they lasted for years.

Editor's Impressions

"Water proof and easy to clean."

Most comfortable boot I have worn in a long time. My husband loves them perfect for his work outside. Takes the rigors of upland hunting without breaking a sweat. No problem breaking them in, they are nice and dry and warm. The boots held great, no leaks and extremely warm.

5. Muck Boot Arctic Pro-M Lightweight Hunting Boot

Editor's Impressions

"These boots were plenty warm."

Husband ordered these after last hunting season. First time I wore them I walked about two miles through woods. This is a good looking boot pictures online depict it well. I hunt all 45 days of Alabama's season so they are well tested. These are basically Muck Boot and they are awesome.

6. Danner Pronghorn Realtree Xtra 1200G-M Lightweight Hunting Boot

Editor's Impressions

"They slip on and off SO EASY!"

Perfect for around the property and hunting. First time I wore them I walked about two miles through woods. I can walk for miles in these without discomfort. I'd rather them be a hair large to fit thicker socks anyway. The Danner boots were very snug to my legs.

7. Muck Boot Woody Sport-M Lightweight Hunting Boot

Editor's Impressions

"Perfect for this style of boot."

Depending on what you are doing the weight may be fine. There was very little break in time and they look great. My husband said these are awesome, warm and comfortable. Still wear them and like them, and will continue to buy. I plan to wear these as I walk into the woods to my deer stand.

8. Danner Sharptail Snake Boot 17" Dark Brown-M Lightweight Hunting Boot

Editor's Impressions

"Very durable and comfortable."

They are darker in color but still a very nice pair of boots. I have only tried this on so far since I’ve received it. I read the other reviews and these do run small. The boots I am replacing lasted 4 years of hard wear and tear. 5d version was too small in lengths and width, but the 10.

9. Columbia Lakeview II Lightweight Hunting Boot

Editor's Impressions

"Seems like a pretty good boot."

These are my husbands favorite outside work shoe. Fits true to size from the way it seems to him. My husband said these are awesome, warm and comfortable. Good for hunting, going to the range, and every day wear. This could also just be that they aren't broken in yet.

10. Danner High Ground 8"-M Lightweight Hunting Boot

Editor's Impressions

"Wish there was half sizes."

Comfortable soft lug soles and uppers provide good support. Toe box is rather large, but my foot did not chafe around. Phenomenal boot, phenomenal experience purchasing! I purchased a 12D and they seem to fit as other 12 Ds have. Boots were very comfortable and are built to last.
