Carolina Boots: Men's Waterproof CA8825 Lug Sole EH Logger Boots
When you need to venture out in rough terrain and rainy weather conditions, make sure you're wearing the proper footwear to see you through. This pair of Carolina Men's CA8825 Black EH Lace-to-Toe 8 Inch Waterproof Logger Work Boots are built tough, will keep your feet dry, and they'll provide the traction you need to make your job easier and more comfortable.
The black full-grain leather uppers of these Carolina boots are extremely durable and supportive. As a result, full-grain leather is used primarily in backpacking boots designed for extended trips, heavy loads, and hard terrain. Full-grain leather is also water-resistant and can absorb up to 30% of its weight in water vapor without loss of dryness. In addition, all-leather boots are less likely to change drastically in shape and flexibility over time, so they'll provide long-lasting comfort.
Inside these men's boots, taibrelle lining will wick moisture away from your skin to keep you dry and comfortable throughout the day. Waterproof SCUBALINER membranes provide additional protection. Carolina's exclusive proprietary waterproof lining system ensures that your feet stay dry in wet conditions.
To keep your feet protected, these waterproof boots are EH-rated. Designed with special heel and sole materials, this men's footwear is tested to withstand applications of 14,000 volts at 60hz for one minute without leakage. As a result, it provides a secondary source of electric shock-resistance protection against accidental contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors, parts, or apparatus.
The one-piece rubber lug outsoles of these EH boots will provide good traction on many surfaces, keeping you steady on your feet. Rubber has superior slip-, puncture- and cut-resistance compared to PVC. The material is also very durable and is resistant to bases, acids, alcohols, and diluted water solutions of most chemicals that are water-soluble. In addition, its excellent low temperature properties allow the material of these black boots to stay supple, even in cold temperatures.
Welt construction provides excellent traction and the best lateral stability of all work boots. The upper, lining, and sole are stitched together, creating a single unit for added durability. As long as the uppers remain sound, it's straightforward to re-sole a pair of worn welted leather boots by sewing new ones to the existing welts. This will give them a life expectancy of 20 years or more
If you need to walk in rough terrain where steep climbs or descents are expected, you should wear men's boots at least 8 inches high - like this pair of Carolina footwear -- for strong ankle support. For additional stability, they also feature triple-rib steel shanks. The shanks force the appropriate break at the ball of the foot to help with arch support and relieve pressure off of your feet.
Removable kilties add some extra visual appeal and style. The fringe tongues over the top part of the EH boots can also be removed if you want to sport a different look. Either way, you'll look good and feel great wearing these Carolina Men's CA8825 Black EH Lace-to-Toe 8-Inch Waterproof Logger Boots. Click on the cart to place your order today.
These are incredibly cool-looking boots, and they are really sturdy and well made, and I had wanted a pair of these for the longest time, ever since I was a kid and saw a couple of bikers wearing them. But here's the thing: if you haven't worn logger boots before, go to a store and try them on and walk around in them a while first, before you make a decision to buy, because they're not for everyone. For one thing, they are heavy. Much heavier than any other work boots I've ever worn. For another, they are STIFF. Well, this is probably a good thing if you're a lumberjack and you want a lot of protection and support and you don't mind clomping around like Frankenstein. But for wear on a warehouse floor, for example, you would be better served getting something else, because after a while, it feels like you're walking around with a pair of cement blocks on your feet. Maybe after you wear them for a REALLY long time, they will break in a bit, but seriously, consider the use you will be putting them to. I really, really, really wanted to keep these, but I just couldn't wear them, so someone at Goodwill got a terrific deal. Oh well. Live and learn....
