Is this a work boot or a hiking shoe? We're proud to say it's both. We build the 453 Steel Toe GTX for athletic performance and jobsite toughness. Certified steel safety toe.


 
 
 

Patterned after Danner’s popular 453 hiking boot, the 453 GTX® steel toe boots combine athletic performance with work boot toughness.

  • Speed lace system for a secure, tight fit
  • Approach TFX® lightweight outsole provides improved acceleration, downhill braking, and side hill traction. Beveled lugs prevent debris build-up

850 Last
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.

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 Steel Toe GTX Work Boots:

    As a welding inspector, I'am on my feet many hours a day...5 to 6 days a week. These are the best steel-toe work boots I have worn in nearly 20 years working in the shop and field. I have been wearing them for a year now and wonder why I didn't get a pair sooner. They are comfortable and provide the protection that I need.

    Comments about Danner 453 Steel Toe GTX Work Boots:

    Perhaps the most comfortable boot I've owned right out of the box and even wrote on this very website how happy I was. Boots were only worn for summer months as a building maintenance tech. Problem is the soles and toe cap have worn out after a summer and a half. No problem because Danner can rebuild/recraft them, right? WRONG! THE 453 MODEL CANNOT BE RESOLED BY DANNER.Am very disappointed at this fact that after paying full price for these boots, the soles have lasted roughly eight months and my only option is to buy another pair. Danner customer service told me to send the boots back AND INCLUDE THE RECEIPT FROM A PURCHASE TWO YEARS AGO to their returns department and they would 'see what they can do about it.' I will do my best to comply, but I expected boots at this price point to wear like iron. And if they didn't, they could be repaired by Danner. I was wrong and as a first time Danner customer, will anxiously await Danner's handling of this issue.

    Comments about Danner 453 Steel Toe GTX Work Boots:

    i bought these as a hiking boot but also had to be steel toe so i could get my company money towards them. i gutted to soles and purchased higher end soles. i also replaced the laces as they are round and kept coming untied. I hiked 80 miles of the Appalacian trail and they never felt heavy. They also stayed drier than my fellow hikers boots when we were caught in a downpour and had to hike 2 miles in it. Good boot, but not very warm. I am going to purchase a new pair soon.

      Comments about Danner 453 Steel Toe GTX Work Boots:

      A great feeling boot from day one. I am in and out of mud and wet grass all year and this boot keeps my feet dry and warm in the winter without being too hot for sumer wear. I wear this boot to work everyday and on weekend projects. In Fact I keep an old worn out pair around for the really dirty jobs and they are still comfortable and keep my feet dry. The only draw back is the tread wears out too quickly and the stiching comes loose at 10 months use. For a recreational user this boots would last years. I will buy again and again unless I can find another Danner boot with the same qualities.
