Quick Overview

Some backpackers demand comfort. Others demand performance. But our bootmakers? They demand both. It's why the 453 GTX features the best full-grain leather anchored to TFX outsoles.
Details

Stable. Reliable. Waterproof.

Rated a "Best Buy" by Backpacker Magazine, these boots offer athletic performance with traditional Danner stability. The full-grain nubuck leather upper offers comfort and durability and the GORE-TEX lining provides waterproof, breathable protection. Danner’s patented TERRA FORCE support system with TFX outsole keeps the boot light and comfortable while delivering outstanding traction on long expeditions.

Nubuck Leather Upper
Our top-grain leather is sanded on the outside to give it a slight nap with a velvet-like feel. This leather upper is extremely durable, while offering a shorter and more comfortable break-in period.
GORE-TEX® (GTX)
100% waterproof and breathable, GORE-TEX® liners ensure that no water gets in, while allowing sweat and moisture to get out.
Abrasion Resistant Toe Cap
For added durability, we've added a scuff-proof toe cap to the area that shows the most wear.
Danner Approach TFX® Outsole
Designed for improved acceleration, downhill braking and side-hill traction. The beveled lugs help prevent debris build-up.
TERRA FORCE X platform
Provides lightweight, durable traction, heel-to-toe energy transfer, side support to enhance maneuverability, and protection from arch overwork and fatigue.
How It Fits
This boot is built on our most popular last, the 850. This last fits true to size with an athletic and supportive fit while providing ample room in the toe. This comfortable, supportive fit is ideal for those needing high mileage performance from their gear.

    Comments about 453 5.5" Steel Gray:

    This boot is my go-to for everything from day hikes to multi-week backpack trips. It holds up to abuse and provides a comfortable ride and stability carrying a heavy pack without too much boot weight. Plus they look good!

    These replaced my older 453s which finally got retired after ~1500 miles over 6 years, and with some minor updates, the only thing that took a bit of getting used to was the updated lacing system.

    453 Grey boots

    By Daniel Murray

    from Grand Junction, CO

    Comments about 453 5.5" Steel Gray:

    Bought to replace my aging 452 Radicals. I had to upsize to a 15 and the 452 wasn't available in that size. The 453 boot is high quality, a great fit, with a frustrating lacing design. The laces don't move well thru the bottom eyelets and don't "bed" themselves into the top speed lugs. Either the laces are too thick for the lugs or the lugs aren't opened far enough. Did not return right away because I was going to pry open later. Tried to pry open with a screwdriver but no luck. Will try again with something else. Hope lugs aren't plastic. Can't leave them this way because the laces won't last long. Otherwise--great boot. Would not recommend to a friend unless the lacing is fixed. Would then give 5-star rating.

          Comments about 453 5.5" Steel Gray:

          I have not used them in the snow yet, and I am curious to see how it insulates my feet. However, I've worn them quite often recently and they still look brand new. Since its a neutral color, it basically goes with anything you're wearing.
