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 six 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.

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.

Good Construction Boot

By Drew

from Kentucky

Pros

  • Great traction on wet surfaces and rough ground
  • Very good ankle support

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about Vicious 8" Brown:

      These boots are very well made and great to work in all day on both concrete and rough terrain. The ankle support is incredible, no concern of rolling an ankle. The only complaints I have is that below about 35 degrees my feet got cold if I was standing for awhile. The other is that black section at the base of the laces lets your feet get cold if the boot is completely submerged in cold water. For some reason the rest of my feet feel warm and so far they stay dry but in that section I can always feel the temperature of the water.

      Comments about Vicious 8" Brown:

      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.

        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.
