I have only had these boots for about a month and they are pretty stiff out of the box but are breaking in nicely. They appear to be built very well and I am assuming they will last a long time. The first thing you will notice is the height...these boots are not 4.5" no matter how you measure them. I looked up the measurement method and read that it is taken inside the boot from the arch to the top. These boots (size 11.5 EE) measure 5-3/8" at that point with the insole installed (6-1/4" without the insole). The description says the 4.5" measurement was taken with size 9 boots. Just be aware that the height of the boot will change in proportion with your size. FYI...the measurement from outside the boot from the floor to the top is 7 3/8". Although these were higher than expected, I am happy with them as I have owned Danners before and am confident they will last.

I disagree with the reviewers that said these are "huge". They are true to size. I ordered a half size down from my normal 8.5 based on reviews and while they fit, I could use a half size up to account for foot expansion when hiking. If you are looking for a super supportive boot that you can wear into the wilderness for a week, these are most definitely NOT the boot you are looking for. However, for easy day hikes, city wear, travel, these are suitable for my needs (ie not rolling an ankle). They have decent tread on the bottom and some moderate arch support. They come with a very minimal insert that can be easily swapped out with a Superfeet orthotic if you need more. Compared to other hiking boots, they are far more stylish.

I bought this shoe because we are moving to Alaska and Danner is a recommended hiking boot. I don't like heavy shoes and this style was described as being more shoe like in fit. I often wear a size 9, which I ordered, but it fit too snug at the toe and on the sides of the toe box. I also felt like I was pronating in it. Unsure if I was really going to like the shoe I tried a 9.5. The difference was dramatic. I have plenty of room and I don't feel like I'm pronating either. I haven't actually worn these yet except around the house. My favorite feature other than how attractive they are is that the sole is flexible. Unlike my Keen hiking shoes, which have their own merits, these boots do feel like a regular shoe. So my foot moves instead of being locked in a coffin all day. I'm looking forward to breaking them in.

TWO QUICKS ANSWERS: YES it has a gusseted tongue, and NO it is not the same color as the Forset Heights II "Falcon Grey". The long answer: Both here, and on the Danner website, they neglected to mention that there is a fully gusseted tongue to accompany the Danner Dry waterproof liner, so it is a truly waterproof boot. Also, the pictures on Zappos are very true to real life appearance. It is a very neutral brown boot, or maybe a very dark warm gray? In either case if you really want a truly gray boot, this might not be the best choice. The brown color, like the Jack line is almost oxblood. In all respects it is very comparable to the Forest Heights 2, it has more cushion and out-of-the-box flexibility than the Jack 2 line (which features a leather sole). Because of the gusseted tongue it is fairly snug for anyone with high instep - at least initially - but the shoe runs very true to other Danner boots.

Got these for my husband last winter & he is very satisfied with their performance. We live in Colorado & hike a good amount of the year. The ankle support is excellent, and the boot itself is very well made, protecting the foot from many elements that can ruin a good hike such as deep puddles, poky shrubbery, biting insects, etc. The boots are beautiful and catch the eye of anyone that passes you on the trail, and that aspect matches their functionality wonderfully.

Great style. Looking for a comfortable work boot that can be worn after hours and on the weekends and the Danners fit the bill perfectly! Bought 1/2 size smaller and a little wide for my foot with. A thin sock but overall a very solid boot!

These boots are aesthetically exactly what I was looking for. However, if you have high arches, there is no arch support. There is a cushioned bottom so they are fairly comfortable besides the arches. There are plastic inserts included, but they did not work for me. I would not buy these if you are looking for something with extreme support, comfort, and overall performance for hiking and backpacking. But if you are just looking for a good boot to wear for everyday and the occasional hike, these are really nice! They are very well made and the sole can be replaced so they will last you a lifetime.

The Danner Vicious boots are the most comfortable boots out of the box I have ever purchased! One day break-in and they were good to go. Very supportive, totally waterproof and love the wide toe box so your toes can spread out and not get too cramped, especially on steep descents. I wear 11.5 in most shoes and ordered a half size up per other's recommendations and they fit perfect. Thank you Danner for a well designed boot and thank you Zappos for the great customer service!

Quickie review: Super comfortable. Soft, cushiony insoles. For boots, I'm impressed by the flexibility. Love the classy yet simple shoe design profile. Destroys all other boots in terms of design taste. Red laces are a nice touch. Makes these boots talk. Traction on bottom of shoes is strong. I plan on traveling the world with these bad boys. Best shoe purchase I've made in a while! I ordered a half size smaller as I read on the Danner site that these run large and a couple of reviews mentioned that they do stretch a bit over time.

Amaaaaaazing boots. They felt comfortable right out of the box, with only minor pinching at my achilles, which disappeared after just a few hours of wear. Big difference from the Mountain Lights, which absolutely killed in the same spot! Even just walking around indoors, they were unwearable. And they were more than twice the price. The grip is super sticky! I can navigate muddy trails and slick surfaces with confidence. And yes -- they're pretty darn cute, too! Classic looking (even with those hi-tech soles) and very deserving of all the compliments they get. While I personally feel they fit true to size (length and width) they do stretch out a bit with use. If you can lose the length, sizing down a half could help maintain their snugness. But I just lace them tight and wear thick socks and I'm fine. My feet are hard to fit -- wide toes, narrow heels, and a bunch of old injuries that have really taken a toll on their symmetry. But whether I'm hiking, casually strolling, or grocery shopping, I never take these boots off. Seriously. I already know I'll buy another pair if/when I wear these guys out. So happy to finally have the Danner Boots of my dreams!

I am very happy with these boots so far. Having read some reviews about the leather near the tongue digging in, the tongue needs to be properly tucked the way it is designed. The other review about the laces not staying tight when trying to tie your boots is absolutely right.. However, that is how any boots with these metal eyelets and hook eyelets were designed. That is what they are supposed to do, it's a speedlace system. Pull hard on the laces and keep pressure until you secure each running end in the last eyelet.. I can tell these will be very comfortable after they are completely broken in (which takes months). I can only question the durability of the sole where it is glued to the upper. Time and lots of abuse will answer that question. All in all, the look of these and the hybrid boot-tennis shoe was what I was after and found that with these. I have had Danners that are still going strong after 20 years. Do I think these will last 20? No. But I'm willing to bet I can get a few years out of them, and that's good enough for me.

So far so good, worn a handful of times so far. comfy right out of the box. In my experience as well as some other reviewers they run large. I'm wearing a 1/2 size smaller than my usual size.

After trying five pairs of work boots at the beginning of winter I settled on the Danner Vicious 8" NMT Insulated boot. I have worn all three styles of the Vicious they all fit different. My foot measures 10.5 and is a little more narrow than a D width. The plain toe I wear size 11 and the width feels good. The non insulated NMT fits true to size but it was a little wide on my foot and too cold for work in a non heated warehouse and while making deliveries during a Michigan winter. The 8" 10.5 insulated NMT fits perfect. I have worn this boot for the last month. It is light weight, warm, stable, has good cushion, and the sole works good on multiple surfaces. The only thing I would recommend to Danner would be a rubber toe cap, a more supportive insole, and locking lace hooks.

These shoes are awesome. I usually order a 10.5 but these fit like a glove in size 11. When I first put them on they felt a little stiff but in 10 minutes once they warmed up they are fantastic. The build quality is incredible. They are built like a tank! These are perfect all purpose work shoes that look great and feel better. These are the type of shoes that only get better with age.

I like the boot or shoe so far only time will tell if they last over a year. Only thing to point out like one reviewer said that not enough cushioning or shoe tongue so it is more comfortable near the ankles and also that the metal loops for the shoe strings make them hard to stay tight while lacing your shoe. They also are not vary breathable after wearing them for a long day your feet can get pruny looking.

I usually don't do reviews, but the vicious is a good boot. I'm a landscaper. I had no choice put to push this boot hard through rain, mud, gravel, trees, brush, you name it. They're light weight, rugged and comfortable. I've used them one year. The sole shows some signs of wear. I like them some much, I'm buying a 2nd pair.

I like Danner boots in general and these are no exception. They seem well constructed with structured insoles.

My husband loves these boots! They are a bit expensive but worth every penny. They are made in Portland, Oregon. They look great and are waterproof. These boots are an investment piece but they are certainly recommended!
