My Job … My Outdoors: Joan Harold — always kicking around the next great idea for a boot

Meet Joan Harold. Runner, snowboarder and skeet shooter in her off time. She thinks about feet a lot at her day job, since she works for LaCrosse and Danner boots. This summer, Danner introduces the new and improved Pronghorn hunting boot in women’s sizes 5-11 that features a new heel counter combined with flex notches in the uppers that allow for a faster, sleeker fit. Joan and crew spent time figuring out how to improve the boot so that women will buy it. It looks like Joan might be interested in spending more time in hunting boots, too, as she responded positively to the idea of a ladies’ hunt together.

My Outdoors

I love to run outdoors and do it as much as possible. I snowboard on the weekends in the winter and I’m getting into skeet & trap shooting and have fun whenever I can get out there and do it!

Can you find Joan Harold in this group of shotgunners?
