Chippewa Boots: Men's Waterproof 55073 Insulated Goodyear Storm Welt Work Boots
If it's cold and rainy outside, you'll want to wear work boots that keep your feet dry and warm so you can get through the work day. A pair of these Chippewa 55073 Men's Brown Waterproof Insulated Work Boots will accomplish both. Made with a waterproof membrane and lined with Thinsulate insulation, you'll remain comfortable despite the nasty weather conditions. Even the non-tarnishable hardware and heavy-duty, nylon laces will hold up against the elements for added durability.
To keep your feet dry, these brown boots feature a Chip-A-Tex waterproof bootie. The membrane shield locks water out, while still allowing air to pass through from the foot to provide maximum comfort. A high-abrasion nylon lining provides additional breathability inside the footwear, keeping your feet cool and comfortable throughout your work day.
When it's cold outside, 400 grams of 3M Thinsulate Ultra insulation will keep your feet warm in temperatures as low as -45° F with moderate activity levels while wearing these waterproof boots. Thinsulate Ultra insulation provides warmth without bulk, and won't compress, lose efficiency, or trap perspiration. Its microfibers are about 10 times smaller than other synthetic insulations, making them ideal for trapping insulating air and reflecting back the body's radiant heat. The material of these Chippewa boots is loftier and thicker than original Thinsulate insulation for even greater warmth and comfort, yet still thin enough to allow complete freedom of movement.
The upper of these insulated boots is constructed of heavy-duty, tough bark leather, which is durable and abrasion-resistant. This leather goes through a bark-tanning process -- also called vegetable tanning -- to create durable, water-repellent leather with a lot of body. Barks contain a bitter ingredient called tannin which has the property of combining with proteins to form a compound that won't rot or decompose easily. As a result, the leather's physical strength is enhanced, giving it greater body and firmness to provide long-lasting use of these Goodyear Storm Welt boots.
Also environmentally friendly, Bontex insole distributes pressure more uniformly to keep you comfortable when working. It's designed to be flexible, while maintaining surface absorption for breathability when you wear these men's boots. Meanwhile, the rubber midsole has excellent low temperature properties, allowing the material to stay supple in cold temperatures. Rubber is very durable and is resistant to bases, acids, alcohols, and diluted water solutions of most chemicals that are water soluble.
The bottom of these 6-inch boots features a Chippewa IQ rubber outsole. To ensure high surface contact, this industrial-quality rubber sole features an aggressive tread pattern. In addition to offering superior puncture- and cut-resistance for durability, rubber also has superior slip-resistance compared to PVC. This will help to keep you steady on many surfaces while wearing these Chippewa boots.
To enhance the footwear's durability, Goodyear Storm Welt Construction is used to assemble them. The upper fabric, lining and sole are stitched together, creating a single unit for added durability. Goodyear Welt products are known worldwide as a superior method of footwear construction. They're extremely tough and provide excellent traction and the best lateral stability of all boots. You can even have the worn-down outsole completely replaced as long as the upper remains sound, giving the footwear a life expectancy of 20 years or more.
A padded collar not only enhances fit and comfort, but also helps to keep trail debris, sticks and stones out of these brown boots. There's even a steel shank to provide arch support and keep you more comfortable during the day. It forces the appropriate break at the ball of your foot to provide the flexibility your foot needs when you're active.
Prepare for working in bad weather and order this pair of Chippewa 55073 Men's Brown Waterproof Insulated Work Boots today. When you're warm and dry on the job, you can focus on your work and be more productive all day long.
