Vicious 8" Brown

Style No. 13866
$190.00

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.

 
 
 
 

Product Details

Overview

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. It also comes with a dual density EVA midsole for extra shock absorption and comfort. The oil and slip resistant outsole have 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, an all-leather upper and a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® liner.

How it Fits

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.

Details

  • 100% waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® liner is engineered to keep your feet dry and comfortable - even in extreme conditions
  • Rich, full-grain leather offers comfortable moisture protection and long term endurance for all job site 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

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Lightweight

  • Waterproof
  • Worth the price

Cons

  • Absolutely none

Best Uses

  • Work Or Otherwise

Have been wearing other big name work boot brands for over thirty years now. I will never buy anything other than Danner boots from now on. These 8' Vicious Boots are truly the best I've ever worn. Very warm, comfortable, lighter than they look, and super waterproof. Best purchase in work wear I have ever made.

Great waterproof boot

By Todd

from Madison, WI

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • No Breakin Time
  • Waterproof

Cons

  • Plastic Speed Laces

Best Uses

  • Farming
  • Hiking
  • Mowing lawn

I bought these after getting my Bull Run's completely soaked and I needed some boots to mow grass. My previous hiking boots were leaking so bad I pitched them the year before and still haven't replaced them. After trying on over a dozen pairs of boots at the store I reluctantly settled on these. I say that because my feet are fairly flat and the insole/deseign of these takes some getting used to. Especially after wearing the Bull Run boot for most everything for over a year. I am happy to say that while I still stumble in these once and a while I am throroughly happy with the purchase I made. At least they have literally no break-in period.

I was originally looking for a shorter boot so as to officially replace my hiking boots but the shorter version of this boot had a spot where it cut into my ankle.

One suggestion I would have is to make the front toe guard piece higher and bigger so that the toes last longer. I'm not sure if the toe or the plastic speed laces will fail first. These should be metal like most of the other Danner boots out there.

I'm not sure who thinks this is an expensive pair of boots but if you do I challenge you to think about how long your not expensive boots last. If you decide to buy an expensive pair of boots do some research into how to take care of them. For $20 on cleaning supplies and boot oil/grease you can extend the life of well made leather boots with a little work when needed.

from Plymouth, Mi

Pros

  • Very comfortable fit
  • Well made product

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Excellent Work Boot

    These boots are very comfortable and an excellent fit. Very very well made for the price. There seemed to me to be no break in period either. Great boot for yard work and construction. I could see them to be great for hiking and fall hunting as well.

        Best Uses

          These boots fit like slippers; the most comfortable ever, no break-in time, just put on and go! They would be even more perfect if they made a wildland firefighter boot like this with all leather.

          • Everyday use
          • Hiking
          • Walking
          • Work

          I use this Danner boot all day on concrete Floors. They hold up after 10 hours of walking everyday. The gore-tex liner is cool to the touch inside and the Eva Vibram soles are non marking and comfortable. The eyelets are metal and not cheap nylon loops that will tear out in 3 months. I have worn these for two weeks and have used danner boot dressing on them. They are very soft and light, but seem very durable. These boots use quality materials and components. I will see how they will hold up six months from now and one year from now.
