Vicious 4.5" Black NMT

|  Style 13864

By incorporating top of the line materials like GORE-TEX and Vibram with a weight-saving platform, we made our tough, versatile work boot feel like the kind of boot you want to put on at the end of a long day.


We borrowed the lightweight, agile Trailguard platform from our hiking boots to engineer this work boot to be nimble and tough from the ground up. This new last is designed to cup your heel for a secure fit while offering a little more room in the toe box to accommodate feet that are carrying heavy loads or changing directions quickly. It also comes with a dual density EVA midsole for extra shock absorption and comfort. The oil and slip resistant outsole has a low-profile, 90 degree heel making it versatile enough for indoor and outdoor work. For really tough jobs, it has an abrasion-resistant heel cap, a non-metallic safety toe and a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® liner.

  • 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® liner is engineered to keep your feet dry and comfortable - even in extreme conditions
  • Rich, oiled nubuc leather offers comfortable moisture protection and long term endurance for all jobsite conditions
  • Danner Trailguard platform provides lightweight, seamless support to provide a roomier fit in the toe box while still offering a snug fit in the heel.
  • Abrasion-resistant heel cap for durability
  • Speed lace system for a secure, tight fit
  • Vibram® Vicious outsole is oil and slip resistant and has a low-profile 90 degree heel
  • Nylon shank
  • 4.5" height
  • 50 oz
  • The non-metallic safety toe won’t conduct heat or cold to the foot, and 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

DLE-01 Last
The DLE-01 last was designed to be an extension of the foot with superior forefoot and heel capture, stability and a more anatomical shape for comfort. The additional space in the toebox allows the foot to naturally react when bearing a heavy load or changing directions laterally in high intensity environments.

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.

        I have been buying Danner boots for about 18 years. My first pair I wore everyday to work, and they lasted me two years. They were a vibram sole. They eventually discontinued that style and I have been frustrated over the years trying to find a vibram sole in the 4.5" hiker type shoe. I used the Striker styles for a while and then they went to a danner sole like previous models. I was very pleased to find the vibram sole available again. It just last longer. This pair as with all Danners I have ever owned fit great out of the box and there was no break-in time. My only small complaint is sometimes my big right toe rubs on top next to the bottom of the toe nail on the composite part. I started a new job that needed the composite toe which I have not used since they quit putting it in the Striker style. I then switched jobs and the new company offered me a voucher to local store that only sells Wolverine. Soon after Danner emailed me their T-Day sale and offered me such a great price I ordered another pair. I am even thinking a purchasing another pair, as I am afraid they will quit using the Vibram soles once again. Danner please do not quit using the Vibram soles. And thank you for making such a good product.

          Very comfortable right out of the box, but these boots made my feet sweat so bad that i had to return them after just 1 week.
