Ariat Boots: Men's Steel Toe EH Wellington Work Boots 10002449
They say you can learn a lot about a man by the shoes he wears. That's why I knew I'd met Mr. Right when he walked in wearing a pair of Ariat 10002449 Men's Aged Bark Steel Toe Sierra Wellington Work Boots.
First, the western stitch detail and roper toe profile told me he appreciates the finer things. Yes, they may be Work Boots, but the medium brown, full grain leather uppers make them look spiffy enough for movie-and-late-dinner dates.
Next, these boots tell me he's spontaneous and open to new things. For instance the ASTM-approved steel toe means he can tackle any job without being overly concerned about a foot injury from fallen objects. The 90 degree heel digs into ladder rungs to prevent slipping or falling.
The soles on these boots feature Goodyear welt construction for durability and permanence. With the Goodyear welt construction, the upper fabric, lining and sole were sewn together in a single process. Then the outsole was stitched to the bottom of the welt. The outsole is wider than the boot, and cavity created by the inseam between the inner and outer sole is filled with a flexible compound (CORK) that quickly molded to the shape of the his feet. The Goodyear welt system allows for a constant flow of air to flow through the boots, keeping them ventilated and tough. Here's the kicker - as long as the uppers remain sound, a pair of worn welted boots can be re-soled by adding new welts, to give them a life expectancy of 20 years or more. This man is definitely not afraid to commit.
Yes, there's a lot of sparking going on between us. Thank goodness the Ariat 10002449 Men's Aged Bark Steel Toe Sierra Wellington Work Boots have Electrical Hazard-rated soles.
