Chippewa Boots: Men's 20049 USA-Made Steel Toe EH Black Work Boots
When you're busy working you never know when an object will fall and land right on your toes. Protect your feet with a pair of these Chippewa Men's 20049 Black USA-Made Steel Toe EH 8 Inch Leather Boots. Compliant with the ASTM ratings for protective toe classification, these steel toe boots are able to endure up to 75 lbs. of impact and 2500 pounds of compression.
In addition, this pair of Chippewa boots will provide a secondary source of electric shock-resistance protection against open circuits up to 14,000 volts under dry conditions. Designed with special heel and sole materials, these EH boots provide extra protection against accidental contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors, parts, or apparatus.
Made with a black odessa leather uppers, these men's boots are less likely to change drastically in shape and flexibility over time to interfere with long-lasting comfort. Black odessa is a 5 to 5.5 oz. leather which is heavily oiled in the tanning process. Oil-tanning makes the leather soft and flexible, giving it that broken-in feeling right from the start. This process also improves the leather's resistance to water, stains, and damage.
The 5-Iron Texon insoles inside these safety toe boots will soften your steps throughout the day. Texon is a durable material that flexes in one direction, across the balls of your feet, to assist in proper walking motion. For additional comfort, these black boots feature a drill vamp lining. This cotton-type material wicks moisture away from your skin to keep your feet dry and comfortable when temperatures rise.
Next, 4 iron Real Flex midsoles provides flexibility when you're actively working. Real Flex midsoles are solid rubber midsoles with a smooth skin on the outside that's created as a part of the molding process. The material flexes as you walk to provide the comfort and support you need when on your feet all day while wearing these USA-made boots. Providing additional support for your feet, there's also triple-ribbed steel shanks. It forces the appropriate break at the balls of your feet to help with arch support.
On the bottoms, Chippewa's black classic footwear features Vibram 109 logger outsoles. Known as the world leader in high-performance rubber soles, the Vibram brand is synonymous with quality, performance, safety, innovation, and design. Their exclusive compound is highly resilient and durable, and also guarantees maximum traction on wet/dry surfaces and various terrain. This compound also maintains its physical properties in extreme temperatures. To provide substantial edging capabilities, the lugs are angled to offer the traction you need on rugged terrain.
Goodyear Welt construction is used to attach the Vibram outsoles to the uppers of these American-made boots. The uppers are drawn over the last, where they're held temporarily, while the Welt is stitched to the uppers and inner soles. To complete the process, the soles are hand-stitched through the Welt. This construction allows multiple sole replacements, extending the life of the work footwear. Extremely tough, Goodyear Welt boots provide excellent traction and excellent lateral stability.
For added durability, the antique brass, non-tarnishable hardware and heavy-duty, waxed Sta-tied laces will hold up against the elements. Lace up a pair of these Chippewa Men's 20049 Black USA-Made Steel Toe 8 Inch EH Boots and get the comfort, durability, and protection you need out of your footwear.
These boots are everything I hope they would be! I researched and tried every brand out there before buying these despite them being my first choice. I needed steel toe and EH rating and a black boot. My reason for ordering online is because no retailer I visited carried as many options in black as far as USA made Chippewas go. Anyway..after these broke in..2 weeks continuous wear all day..I loved them...bought some red wing leather conditioner with mink oil added, applied by hand and the next day they were even more supple.
These boots are not for the quitters. Once they break in you'll be even more happy you went with them. I have worn all kinds of boots over the years and these are the best all around boot for any application..the logger heal is bad ads and comes in handy in the dirt or on truss which is in my industry.
