Iron Age Boots: Men's Black IA0193 Composite Toe Met Guard Insulated Puncture-Resistant Boots
When you're deep under the earth's surface, there's no telling what sort of accidents might happen. Come to think of it--there's really no telling what sorts of accidents will happen on top of it either. For the most dangerous work, the wise Working Man reaches for his Iron Age Men's 10" Waterproof Puncture-resistant Met Guard Mining Boots IA0193.
With all sorts of safety features--including waterproofing, a protective toe, and metatarsal guard--these black leather boots really protect your feet. Starting with naturally water-resistant leather, Iron Age added a layer of waterproof material inside of the boots to further protect your feet. Then they layered a sheet of 400 gram Thinsulate Ultra Insulation inside the boots as well. This keeps them warm and dry on your feet.
Composite toe guards and internal metatarsal guards ensure that your feet are protected all over. Metatarsal guards shield the tops of your feet from danger from above (Meets ASTM F2413-05 Metatarsal guard standards). Composite toes keep you from crushing your toes or stubbing them (ASTM F2413-05 PT Class 75 Protective Toe).
Iron Age has been known for making tough boots for decades. These though, are the toughest that Iron Age makes. Their heat, abrasion and metal chip resistance is unsurpassed in the Iron Age catalogue. In addition, the outsoles have an excellent level of oil and chemical resistance.
Tough outsoles are a safety necessity on most jobsites. These Vibram outsoles are meant for very rugged work, and they're reinforced with a puncture-resistant composite plate. Even if you step onto sharp surfaces or nails, these boots won't puncture. They're compliant with ASTM F2413-05 Puncture Resistant Standards. Additionally, they're compliant with ASTM F2413-05 electrical hazard standards. Thus they provide a secondary source of protection from errent electrical currents.
Meant to last and last, these boots are made with Goodyear welt construction. Designed to be easily replaceable, yet tough, a Goodyear welt is a highly desirable feature in a boot. In this construction method, the outsoles are sewn to the uppers and then a band of rubber is sewn to the seam. To replace the soles, a cobbler just removes the rubber (the welt), takes off the outsole, and replaces it. Goodyear welts are great because they lengthen the life of your boots.
Iron Age makes some of the toughest boots you can find above or below the ground. If you're looking for boots for mining, ironworking, or heavy construction, these Iron Age Men's 10" Waterproof Puncture-resistant Met Guard Mining Boots IA0193 are a safe choice.
