Details

Some boots climb mountains. Others climb worksites.

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. 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 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, an all-leather upper, a non-metallic safety toe and a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX liner.

Ergonomic fit

To truly create something new, one must start from the ground up. In footwear, that begins with the development of a footwear last, a solid form that literally shapes the fit and performance of the boot. When we designed the last for the Vicious, we took in part the ergonomic structure of the foot, focusing our attention on allowing the toes to naturally splay, and narrowing the heel to lock the foot in place. We then designed the composite safety toe specifically around the last, maintaing the integrity of its fit.

Unconventional support

The Trailguard platform is a unique construction that saves weight and provides torsional strength by integrating an extremely durable TPU shank into the midsole, while the EVA midsole provides cushioning properties. By molding the midsole directly to the outsole and removing a seam, we eliminated weight and added strength. An extremely comfortable and supportive work boot, the Vicious challenges the traditional ideals of how a work boot should perform.

Our standards

While the Vicious may not be a traditional work boot, the standards we adhere to are a long standing tradition to the Danner name. We extensively test each hide and only accept the highest grade of leather. We line the boot upper with waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX, and use the strongest, most rugged Vibram outsoles. We have been upholding these standards since the very beginning and will for years to come. The Vicious is no exception.
Full-Grain Leather Upper
To ensure its quality, we put our leather through nine different tests before making our selection. Our full-grain leathers are the strongest and most durable form of leather.
GORE-TEX® (GTX)
100% waterproof and breathable, GORE-TEX® liners ensure that no water gets in, while allowing sweat and moisture to get out.
Speed Lace System
Our special hardware allows you to tighten from toe to top with one swift tug for a secure, tight fit.
Electrical Hazard (EH) Protection
Meets or exceeds ASTM F2892-11 EH. Electrical hazard (EH) footwear is manufactured with non-conductive electrical shock resistant soles and heels.
Non-Metallic Toe (NMT)
Our non-metallic toe does not transmit heat or cold. Nor will it set off metal detectors. As expected, it meets or exceeds ASTM F2413-11 M I/75 C/75 EH standards.
90º heel
Added safety for boots used on steep terrain, climbing in and out of equipment, and use with certain tools.
Vibram® Vicious Outsole
Oil- and slip-resistant with a low-profile 90° heel.
Danner Trailguard
Lightweight, seamless support with a roomier fit in the toe box and snug fit in the heel.
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 toe box allows the foot to naturally react when bearing a heavy load or changing directions laterally in high intensity environments.

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.

Comfortable but NOT WATERPROOF

These are super cushony and comfortable, but the area between the tongue and the laces is not waterproof at all. Step in one puddle and your feet will be totally soaked. For me,...Read complete review

These are super cushony and comfortable, but the area between the tongue and the laces is not waterproof at all. Step in one puddle and your feet will be totally soaked. For me, this was a huge prolem.

Also: I bought these for a 5 month trail work season. While they did last the full season, they were pretty destroyed in the end--not the most durable boots.

        This is my husband's second pair. As a mechanic, he works with gas, grease, acid, on a cement floor all day, sometimes in the heat. He said more than once a heavy object has fallen on his foot. The boot saved his foot, he said. They are, as advertised...a work boot.

        I've have owned many of the top brands of work boots over the years. Danner boots just fit my foot the best so far. I love that theses boots are so lightweight. Makes long 10+ hour days bearable. I do. Wish they offered this boot in a 6". This is the second pair of Danner boots I have owned And definitely not the last.
