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.
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 wear these boots every single day. I work in a shipping yard where I am climbing in and out of semi trucks and walking miles all day long. I also go hiking two or three times a week. These boots are tough but very comfortable and light weight. It's really hard for me to spend almost two hundred dollars on boots and have them not last. I'm glad I found these boots!

My brother gave me these boots because he had worn them a couple of times outdoors and found out he could no longer return them. He ordered them in a size 12. He usually takes a 12, and found they were too small. It appears that he should have ordered them in EE width as I take a size 11 and they're still tight in the toes. Build quality is excellent. If you have any question about your foot width go wide.

Awesome

Comments about Vicious 4.5" Black:

I'm an irrigation tech in the Rocky Mountains. Constantly getting my boots wet and muddy. Have to work on wet steep terrain on a regular basis. These boots are awesome! When I get home my socks are dry and my feet don't hurt.

Excellent boots

      Comments about Vicious 4.5" Black:

      I have owned my boots for over a year now and they are still comfortable to wear. After some simple math I figured out I have walked about 1,000 miles (5 miles a day avg. at 5 days a week) in my boots mostly on concrete and the tread is still amazingly intact. The insole is still comfortable and the laces have not frayed. All in all the best pair of boots I have ever owned and it seems they still have plenty of life left in them. They are the most comfortable pieces of footwear I own and are lightweight enough to choose over my walking/running shoes. Keep up the good work Danner!
