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


 
 
 

Rated a “Best Buy” by Backpacker Magazine, these boots offer athletic performance with traditional Danner stability. The full-grain nubuc 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.

Tips for the Perfect Fit

  • Measure both feet. If one foot is slightly larger than the other, select a size that fits the larger of the two.
  • Consider the type of socks you’ll be wearing with your boot. For thicker socks, you may want to select a half size larger than you normally wear.
  • When you do receive your boots, we recommend first wearing them indoors for a few hours to ensure they’re the right fit.

Free Return Shipping
Rest assured that if the boot you receive doesn’t fit correctly, we pay for return shipping back to us. You can order with confidence knowing return shipping is always on us.

    Comments about Danner 453 GTX Tan/Grey Hiking Boots:

    Obviously the cost could always be less however, you definitely get what you pay for with these boots. I have had these boots in everything from extremely wet conditions for many hours on end fishing in the rain, to the steep rocky black hills of South Dakota stocking and hunting deer, to the hard concrtet floor of a warehouse for 8 hours a day. Through all these conditions I have yet to be able to complain of a moisture or comfort issue in the slightest. Between the traction and the comfort offered in a danner boot, I beleive a new benchmark in the industry has been set. I am an avid hunter, fisherman, and outdoorsman. For me, the only boots that have stacked up and surpassed my high demands and expectations, have had Danner branded on the sides of all 5 pairs, so will the 6th! I would highly reccomend to anyone asking...

    Comments about Danner 453 GTX Tan/Grey Hiking Boots:

    i bought these boots last summer and didnt get to wear them very much over the winter but i have been wearing them ALL summer. I'm a field geologist so i hike 3 to 5 days a week, 10/12 a day hours just for work. the reason for my poor scoring on these boots is they take a long time to break in and now that i have them broke in the tread on the soles are almost completely gone (about 2.5 months of field work). these boots are comfortable but they really dont stand up well when it comes to extended amounts of hiking.

    Comments about Danner 453 GTX Tan/Grey Hiking Boots:

    I walk for a living 9-12 miles a day. Down streets, through yards, across fields, wet or dry. I bought these boots summer of 09. the fit was great right out of the box. The first pair split the rear seams after 3 months. Danner replaced them, but they were unavailable for 3 months. Now after 9 months of use, this pair is no longer waterproof. just walking across dew covered lawns my feet get wet. Seems to be leaking from where the tongue attaches to the boot.
    I guess I'm still searching for a boot that will last and be waterproof for longer than 9 months

    Comments about Danner 453 GTX Tan/Grey Hiking Boots:

    Danner 453 GTX boots are good for hiking on a dry trail. But in wet grass your feet will get damp in 10 minutes, and on a wet trail your feet will get soaked. And the next morning you're going to be putting on wet boots that have gained several ounces. These boots are not even close to waterproof.
