I agree with nrpate05 on the 'softness' - in my case - I have wide feet and my right foot is slightly larger than my left so have a tough time with boot fit, the Pronghorns broke in REALLY quickly and have been excellent for 3.5 years.They're decent boots. They're fairly soft as a "mountain boot" Even with the 10" height (I think that's what it is) there isn't a ton of support. Wouldn't be bad for say a late season mule deer hunt in more gentle terrain, but I wouldn't use them for a backcountry elk hunt in steep terrain or something like that.
I haven't had huge issues with ankle support and no leaking, but after several hundred miles they are toast. Not unexpected for boots in that price range and the amount of abuse I put them through the last 3 seasons.
I got a pair of Crispi's last winter as a gift and while I definitely see the huge difference in stability and grip, I am having a really tough time breaking them in with the hard 'cup' around the heel. Going through a lot of Moleskin so far and may just have to go back to Pronghorns on a 3 year cycle.
