Love the look of these, but BRUTAL break-in. The sole is running shoe like and super comfortable, but the upper leather, especially the back, right above the heel is stiff. So stiff it nearly wore a hole through Darn Tough socks and made me bleed for days. I imagine once the upper softens up, they're going to be very comfortable. But until then, time to break out the band-aids.

This is a promising work boot except for one big flaw—it has a 4 inch shaft rather than a 6 inch one. The boot hit right on my ankle bone and the seam just wasn’t something I wanted to find out if it would break in or not. I tried the laces looser and then tighter. Nope. No ankle support in case of falling or taking a funny step over uneven terrain. I think if this boot had a slightly higher shaft then it would protect better against snow, rain and dirt and ankle twisting. It was a deal breaker to me. Otherwise the composite toe was fantastic—didn’t know if was there, lots or room for toes and my foot was comfortable. The laces were nice and I liked how they hooked at the top. But I sent them back to get some work boots with a 6 inch shaft. Very sad they didn’t work out.

Overall, decent boots. Took about a week to break in and feel comfortable around my ankles but otherwise they felt good right out of the box. Only issue I recently found out is that the soles aren't the best for winter work, if you've been outside and walk into a warm garage/house you're gonna slip & slid until the soles warm up.

Out of the box, these look great, fit great, perfect width (EE), perfect length (11.5). I thought they were the perfect boot. Then I stood up and found there was NO arch support. I have high arches. So I put a pair of superfeet in them. Still no support. If you look at the side of the boot, you will notice the sole along the toe is curved from from to back. This isn't a problem for me. But if you look at the front of the boot, you will see that it is curved side to side and the instep side is actually higher than the outside. So the way I stand in them, my feet roll inward (making me knock-kneed) putting a lot of stress on my knees and ankles. I had to return them.

This is probably my 5th pair of the Danner Vicious. This is an all around great work boot. My last pair has lasted almost 2 years, and still have a little life left in them. This boot runs a little snug in the toes, so what I always do with this particular boot is order it in a wide, and then it fits just fine! Comfort is excellent after a few days of wear break in. I do Pest Control for a living, s9 I do a tremendous amount of walking! The Vibram soles have excellent slip resistance! They do wear a little warm, it that is due to the GorTex Waterproof Lining, which I have to have. And as always, Zappos has Amazing Customer Service, and super fast shipping! I have tried many many other brands of work boots, and for me, this is the best! I also like the 4.5” height.

These boots exceeded my expectations. I got them to try on compared to some other very comfortable boots, and these win hands down. The ankle support is great and doesn't chafe. The comfort for all-day wear is fantastic. Genuinely thrilled with the purchase. First pair of nice boots. First pair of Danners.

Fantastic shoes albeit a bit stiff. You can tell they were originally designed to be a boot. There was some heel slip issues and the overall fit was pretty stiff. I thought the waterproofing was a bit on the warm side but that’s just me. Results may vary. I think the boot version would be fantastic over the shoe version.

Half size large, at least. I'm a solid 9.5 in pretty much everything, and for these a 9 was almost perfect, if not still just a little big. I'm afraid another half size down and it'd be too small. Width is a little wide, but not enough for me to actually mark them as "wider than marked". These are COMFORTABLE, and felt amazing, right out of the box. I can't speak to their longevity as I haven't had them long, but the durability and construction seems pretty spot of for Danner. These are a bit more "tennis shoe" or athletic style than most Danner/Red Wing boots, which is definitely what I was going for. Highly recommend.

Will not order again. Love the fit, feel and style, however, purchased in mid May and am having to replace them in October because the sole is worn out. I do wear them almost every day, but except for this price, to have a longer life.

These went straight from their shoe box to a fews days of rough hiking in Sedona, AZ without issue. No break-in period, no hotspots, no blisters. They're so comfortable and light they feel like a comfortable pair of sneakers, but yet still feel very protective for all the rough miles of rocky trails we did. Definitely recommend. I ended up going a 1/2 size down because the first pair felt a little too big and it turned out to be right decision for me.

They felt good, even up the leg, but the insole has this ridge that digs into the sides of my heels. I might have kept them and found a replacement insole, but I didn't have time. Need something that works right out of the box, and these didn't.

I’m a big fan of Danner boots. Except this boot. The toe box seemed smashed down and sort of flat compared to other Danner boots. Just not a comfortable boot.

Wow! Danner boots are the most comfortable boots out there. They are consistent too. They are good looking boots. This boot is so lightweight, classy. You will never go wrong with a Danner boot. Seriously. The only thing I can say is if you have a really narrow foot they may feel too loose.

I am in love with these boots. I wanted something for travel to Colorado in early November, knowing we'd be doing some hiking but not wanting to wear winter boots. They are fully waterproof with a gusseted tongue. Generally I wear a 9.5-10 and I was worried these would be too small, but they fit perfectly even with a thick sock. The arch support isn't really there, but that was an non issue for me. Some styles overdo that part and it ends up hurting my foot more.

The tongue of the shoe has material that overlaps. it rubbed blisters onto both of my feet. There is little padding on the bottoms of the shoes. A day of walking around Washington DC made my hips hurt and I don’t have typical hip pain.

Love these! Only reason for a three star on comfort is they are stiff, but will break in nicely! I am a solid 8.5 and these are just right.

I ordered these in my usual size 7.5. They were pretty big, even with a large sock, so I returned for a 7, which is perfect. Many people have mentioned something painful in the heel, but I am lucky enough not to feel that. They felt good from the beginning, but they do need some breaking in so they will be good for everyday. I did not buy them for hiking, but I think they may actually be good for that, which I didn't expect after reading reviews.. I wore them for the first time to a casual event with little walking and I was good in them for 5 hours. I have a narrower foot, but I don't buy narrow shoes, so the width is fine for me. I recommend them.

If you check Danner's website, they actually advise ordering these a half size smaller than your normal shoe size. So for me 10.5 (normally an 11) was a perfect fit.

My hubby took advice of reviewers and ordered a half size larger than his normal size. He said it fit perfectly, not too large (he said that if he had ordered his regular size, he would have been able to feel the end of the boot with his toes.) These boots were comfy right from the start, with no break in time needed. They are good looking and will be a serviceable waterproof boot this fall and winter.
