Danner bases its sizing scheme on the industry-standard Brannock device.
So, if you have a chance to get your feet measured in a store that has one, you are likely to get an accurate size in Danner.
Alternatively, you can measure your feet at home following our 3-step guide.
Tip: Measure the widest part of your feet as well because Danner offers width options. Scroll down to see the width chart.

How should Danner hiking boots fit
Here are a few signs that you got a well-fitting pair of Danner boots:
- Supportive side-to-side. The boot feels snug and the foot is not sliding around. Yet it is not constricted either.
- A little room up front. Your toes should not be touching the tip of the boot.
- Minimal heel sliding. It can slip up and down slightly but in a comfortable way.
It is recommended to walk around the house in the boots before you take them on an adventure. This will give them a chance to break in and conform. And if there is any serious discomfort or pinching, you will still have a chance to exchange them for a different size.

However, there is still no 100% guarantee that each Danner shoe or boot if going to follow this size.
That’s why we gather all available user feedback on each Danner model to give you a better idea of how it fits. Check the corresponding product pages for Danner Mountain 600, Danner Mountain Light, or Danner Trail 2650 among others.
