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.

Danner width options
Try Narrow boots if your foot width is less than Standard in your US size. If it’s wider than Wide, consider Extra Wide.

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.
