Default Danner Snake boots vs Chips?

Only worn round toe Chips. I want to try the Moc toe style. Cant find a 13EE any where in the Chips. I found the Danner ones in my size. Never worn any Danners.
Any recommendations for the Danners. They are actually cheaper than the Chips.

I’ve had a pair of those for 6-7 years. They are well made and very comfortable. Maybe it’s the moc toe but I think they are somewhat wider and have a bigger toe box than the Chips. (I have a high instep and had a hard time getting my foot into the Chips.) If you have big calves the Danners will work well. I have skinny bird legs and have to cinch down the strap at the top

He doesnt have any bird legs. I like chips but I dont think you can go wrong with either. Chips make a variety of styles including one that has a zipper up the back that helps with getting on and off.

That is the size my buddy wore that had the zipper back. Maybe he ordered them? That was several years ago.

I wear these Justin Stampeede Snake boots. They have a zipper on the inside that makes foe easy on and off. They are very comfortable and wear great. I have big calves also and no issue there. I wear a 12ee and they make them in your size.
Got mine at the Justin boot outlet in FT. Worth.

I have two pair of Danners. Jackal and pronghorn, which are now 9/10 years old and still in great shape. Both are 17” lace ups. The jackals are the most comfortable boot I’ve worn and I thought the pronghorns were at first. You won’t be disappointed with those boots.

I have the danners you have posted in the same size and by far the most comfortable snake boot I have worn. I ended up selling my Chips and Cabela snake boots and kept these. I wear them sun up to sun down while at the lease. You will not be disappointed.

Check Amazon for those Danners. I just bought a pair a couple weeks ago for $223. Haven’t had a chance to wear them yet but have a buddy that says they’re the most comfortable snake boot he has tried.

I have the same Danners and they are by far the most comfortable boot I've owned. Wear them every minute at the lease. Summer or winter doesn't matter. Always comfortable.

I have had several pairs of Danner boots. Currently own the lace up Pronghorns. They are very comfortable. Also had a pair of Danner hiking boots that were also very comfortable but after a year or two the soles literally fell off the boots. They were glued on and not repairable. The Pronghorn soles are also glued on. That makes me nervous that I’ll loose those soles as well.

It would be nice to not have to worry about a $250 pair of boots coming apart. No more glued on soles for me. I’ll stick with boots that can be repaired. The US made Danners have the sewed on soles.

Agree. I like the comfort of the pronghorn sole but it's not repairable.

Love my danners. Very comfortable and light to walk in. I have a wider foot and the wide footprint of the boot really helps with fitment.

I have put many miles on my Chips. The soles are now held on with tape and they hare flat out falling apart and give me blisters. I wear Danner boots to work everyday and my nest snake boots will be Danner. Thanks for all of the input as it helped me as well.

Have you had a chance to try these out yet? Getting a replacement pair of boots from Goretex bc my Jackals started leaking. These and the 17 pronghorn are my options. Have the pronghorns already though.

They take the sharp tails out of production on occasion so if you love them as do I buy two pair.

My only complaint is I wish they made a non-waterproof version

Muck boots in general arenít snake proof. However, I do believe they offer snake boots in that brand. So if you got the Muck snake boots youíre good, if itís just the regular Muck boot then itís not.

I have had a couple pair of Danner Pronghorns and love them. Current pair are 10-12 years old and get worn ALOT.

I really need to get them cleaned up and oiled. Anyone have a place in Houston they would suggest?

I've ha had both. I prefer my Danner Sharptails hands down. Comfortable from the get go. Not near the break in time as Chips. Which I never could get broken in.
