For Women Who Get the Job Done
Name a job that might require climbing up and down ladders, balancing on scaffolding or standing on muddy rocky ground for hours on end, and there’s probably someone doing it right now wearing the Danner Vicious. It’s a tough boot built for the toughest jobs, but until now we hadn’t offered it for women. Using inspiration from our hiking boots and a fit tailored to women’s feet, the Vicious delivers all-day comfort with the durability to match the demands of working outside in rough conditions. A lightweight non-metallic safety toe keeps you safer and helps keep your legs fresh longer. With the women’s Vicious you get a boot built right, built for you and built for the job.

You asked, and we listened. Women shouldn't have to wear smaller sizes of men's work boots, due to the lack of options. We are proud to offer our best-selling work boot in women's sizing. With the full-features as the original, the new women’s Vicious packs all the same performance but provides a proper fit. The Danner Vicious is built for all of the women out there getting the job done, no compromises.

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.

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.
