Radical 452 5.5" Brown ST

$160.00
|  Style 45258

Safety comes first. Comfort takes a close second. So when we build these boots, we build them with steel toes and the most lightweight, supportive materials available. Certified steel safety toe.


 
 
 

The Radical™ 452 GTX® Steel Toe boots are as light as they are tough. While internal and external support structures provide stability and responsiveness, a supportive midsole and sturdy footplate provide comfort. The steel toe meets or exceeds ASTM standard F2413-11 I/75 C/75 EH and increases safety on the job. A GORE-TEX® liner offers waterproof, breathable protection, keeping feet dry all day long.

Boot Details
  • 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® liner is engineered to keep your feet dry and comfortable - even in extreme conditions
  • Full-grain nubuck leather offers better protection in cold and wet environments while offering some of the best abrasion- and scuff-resistance of all of our leather options
  • 1000 Denier nylon upper material is extremely resistant to abrasions, tears, and scuffs, improves breathability, and dries quickly
  • Scuff-proof toe cap provides protection where boots tend to show wear
  • TERRA FORCE™ technology provides exceptional boot support and stability without the traditional weight. The four components in the exclusive TERRA FORCE™ system combine to form an extremely rigid, stable platform that’s also comfortable and supportive
  • Danner Boulder TF outsole employs multi-directional center lugs and traditional outer lugs for a failsafe pattern that gets you comfortably and safely to your destination whether it’s uphill, downhill or on a sidehill
  • Nylon shank
  • 4.5" offer ankle support and stability while still maintaining a comfortable, athletic feel
  • Extremely lightweight at 48 oz
  • Steel safety toe meets or exceeds ASTM standard F2413-11 I/75 C/75 EH. Electrical hazard (EH) footwear is manufactured with non-conductive electrical shock resistant soles and heels.
  • Imported
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 Radical 452 GTX Steel Toe Work Boots:

I wear these boots everyday as a water/wastewater operator. They are truly comfortable right out of the box. They are more comfortable than most of the shoes I own. They are very water resistant...until the sole cracks right across the middle of the sole allowing water to come up into the shoe. FIX THE WEAK SOLES!!!!!! How many bad reviews does Danner need to change this?????

    The best boots you'll ever buy! I work on concrete 11 hours a day. I wore tennis shoes for a few days and developed shin splints. After wearing my danner boots about a week, my shin splints are almost gone!!

    Comments about Danner Radical 452 GTX Steel Toe Work Boots:

    I have owned 3 pairs of these boots and have had the same problem with all of them. These are the most comfortable boots that I have ever put on my feet, but the outsole wears out way too prematurely. The first two pair that I owned lasted a little over a year before the outsole split across the center. The current pair that I own haven't lasted a whole year. I have other Danner boots that have lasted over 10 years and are still perfectly wearable and comfortable. If these boots had a stitchdown sole that was recraftable, these boots would be a sure thing. Thanks for letting me down, Danner.

    Comments about Danner Radical 452 GTX Steel Toe Work Boots:

    I have worn these boots nearly everyday during the last year except on the coldest of days. I am on my second pair. The first pair, the soles wore down to nothing and cracked across the whole thing in just 4 months. Danner took great care of me and sent me a new pair free of charge. I am sending in the second pair as I type this for another replacement (I hope) Still under the one year warranty and two pairs have worn out the exact same way. I hope Danner will take care of me one more time while the original purchase is still under warranty. I do construction so I used these boots under fairly hard conditions but not really bad. The uppers look brand new just the soles are terrible. I compare them to a high performance racing tire that performs great but only lasts one or two races. The boots are awesome except for the premature wear. Unfortunately that is a deal breaker for me. If you were to wear these boots less frequently than I did you might be alright. I love Danner boots and will always buy Danner products. Their morino wool socks are phenomenal! I intend on trying the Vandals next. They are a great design, light weight but they have a vibram sole on them which I believe will wear much better that the Radial.

    Comments about Danner Radical 452 GTX Steel Toe Work Boots:

    VERY comfortable boot.
    Per other reviews, the sole is not durable and wears easily.
    If it had a more durable sole, it would be the best medium duty work boot out there.
