By incorporating top-of-the-line materials like GORE-TEX and Vibram with a weight-saving platform, Danner made a 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 and a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX liner.

Dual-density EVA cushioning and shock absorbing midsole offers added durability on the outside edges with cushioning on the inside for more comfort and support underfoot
My sixth pair of Danner boots/shoes. Vicious is easy on, easy off. Heavy enough for Harley riding. Light enough for hiking. Fit consistent as with all of my Danner purchases. Leather, Gortex, Vibram is great combo.
I started construction as a electrician, I had never worked in the industry field. I was worried my would hurt as i had to break them in, but no my feet have never been an issue. I did step on a small nail that went at a 45 degree angle into the boot it went right between the two layer of the sole, it was a small nail. it didnt hit my foot just was a freak angle i doubt it will ever happen again. Other than that i have been very happy. 5/5
I’m 52 years old and have worked construction since I was a teenager . I am very tough on boots from doing concrete to roofing. This is the 1st pair of boots that I have ever owned that lasted over a year without falling apart and didn’t need to be slowly broke in , they are so comfortable right out of the box , The salesman at Bass Pro Shops Recommended the size 10 EE since I have a wide foot and the fit was perfect , Danner is the only work boot I’ll ever buy from now on. This is my 2nd pair and I highly Recommend these boots . Thanks Danner for a great boot
I like that they are light weight. This is my 4 th pair. The others last about 6 months, then I replace them. Wish they last longer. But still cheaper than getting a years life of the super rainforests. Stitching usually breaks on the outsides.
These boots were comfortable out of the box. I had a different Danner Boot which lasted me 2 full seasons prior to these. The Vicious is more comfortable and has better support than my last boot from Danner. They have nice cushioned support around the ankle. My feet are a 12 1/2. I ordered a 12 ee at first they were snug. I exchanged for a 13ee and the fit was perfect. There is no heel slip. I have wore the boots about 10 days on a outdoor construction site
Very reliable and diverse work boot. Sturdy yet comfortable enough to hike up and down canyons all day. Had terrible feet problems but these boots have made a noticeable difference. Only complaint is they tear but I work with barbwire so it’s pretty much unavoidable.
I got these boots for work in a commercial construction environment. I have worn the quarry's for a long time as a millwright and they were always a little on the narrow/short side. After wearing these for a week at work i found myself wearing them over my Nike's to work around the house. I have them on my feet for 12+ hours 7 days a week and when they break down i will be buying another pair. Extremely comfortable and easy to break in
This is my 3rd pair of Vicious . They are great. Break in right away. Generally last about 2 years of everyday wear. They are tuff, I am around some not so friendly enviroment, gravel, trash, oil, water, metal , dirt. They get abused and hold up very well. Keep my feet warm and dry in the PNW, maybe a little too warm on the hot summer days, but thats OK I like the protection. Great boot . Highly recommend them.
Second pair. The first pair was dependable and did not break down prematurely or fail catastrophically (i.e. sole detaching or breaking apart, stitching coming apart). Used for a year working in the forest in Washington's Puget Sound as well as some time landscaping in Central New York. I stopped using the pair regularly after that but they had not failed at that time.
I've had a pair of these for going on 5 years now. They're just now starting to hurt my feet a bit when wearing them for more than a few hours. The boot itself is still holding up great. I'm hoping new insoles will restore how comfortable these felt when new. I had never worn something so comfortable before.
I just started treating the leather with Obenauf's Leather Oil this past Fall because I knew I'd be using them in our damp Northwest Climate. I spend a good bit of time outdoors and have worn these hunting, fishing and hiking and never have I had a single issue with them. I'm hoping with new insoles these will last another few years.
Otherwise, I'd be more than happy with a new pair! Thanks Danner!
I bought a pair of Viscious 4.5’s about 18 months ago. I have a busy lawn care business and they still have some life left in them! Even thought well worn they are still comfortable. Danner offered a great price over the holidays so I bought a 2nd pair. I will be using the new pair for casual wear and when the original pair finally wears out they will be put to “work”! I never buys shoes online but took the chance with these since I already had a pair. Also they offer free returns which was reassuring. The new pair size and fit are very consistent with the original boots. These are well made quality boots!
I am very pleased! I wrote a review on this boot 2 months back and only gave 3 stars as my boots didn't last longer than 6 months. Danner reached out to me to send my boots in for warranty. These are not a style that they recondition. They stood behind their work and sent me a brand new pair. Just like the first ones they fit and feel great right out of the box. The Warranty department was kind and helpful. This is why I by Danner!
Bought my first pair of these over 3 years ago. Wore them off and on the first year, but have worn them every work day for the last two years with 50-60hr work weeks. I do mostly indoor commercial field tech work so lots of walking, standing, climbing, driving, etc. These are very sturdy, comfortable, and light weight boots. The soles were finally worn enough that I had to retire them to yard work/around the house duty (although the rest of the boot is in near perfect condition). I bought my 2nd pair of these boots today and have them mink oiled up waiting for duty first thing Monday. 10/10 will keep buying these boots every couple years for as long as they are made.
They were comfortable from the 1st day. I have other Danner boots that I have had for years but these only made it 6 months before they started to come apart at the the seams. Granted I wore them most every day. Love the feel but for the price I need more than 6 months.
