Kodiak Boots: Men's 310073 Steel Toe Puncture Resistant EH Boots
Work boots need to be sturdy and durable to get you through a hard day of work. Depending on your line of work, you may want them to offer protection as well. If they accomplish all that and look good too -- like these Kodiak 310073 Men's Brown Rebel Puncture-Resistant EH Steel Toe 8" Boots -- then you're ahead of the game.
The smoke Nubuck leather upper of these Kodiak boots is combined with abrasion-resistant nylon mesh panels for added durability. Nubuck is an "effect" that's done to the grain side which makes it incredibly soft, creating a texture similar to a velvet on leather. This brushing also makes the leather of these steel toe boots even more absorbent than Aniline leathers. Nylon mesh is an opened woven textile construction that's used in combination with leather. It provides the footwear with maximum ventilation and a foot-cooling system to keep feet comfortable throughout the day.
These Rebel boots have an anatomical wide-fitting last that provides increased comfort and a wider fit. Inside these safety toe boots, the anti-fatigue footbed features energy transfer heel and forefoot pods for added comfort and shock-absorption. It's removable, so you can take it out to clean or replace when necessary.
A lightweight, direct-injected polyurethane midsole provides increased flexibility and a tough, watertight bond between the uppers and the sole of these brown boots. PU is the most dense, durable, and stable midsole material. The foamed structure contains tiny air bubbles, making the material lightweight, flexible, and shock-absorbing.
When you're working, heavy objects can fall unexpectedly, or you may be forced to walk in hazardous areas. Meeting ASTM F2413-05 I/75 C/75 safety standards, these EH boots can endure up to 75 lbs. of impact and 2500 pounds of compression. In addition, they also meet electrical hazard standards for protection. EH-rated footwear is designed with special heel and sole materials to provide a secondary source of electric shock-resistance protection. As a result, these men's boots will protect you against accidental contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors, parts or apparatus.
If that's not enough, this pair of puncture-resistant boots are also CSA Grade 1 approved. A steel plate runs the length of the boot to protect your feet from punctures.
The TPU outsole features Kodiak's exclusive slip-resistant tread design to provide excellent traction. Bridging the gap between flexible rubbers and rigid plastics, thermoplastic polyurethane has excellent abrasion-resistance, as well as high tensile, compressive, and tear strength. In addition, TPU has good flexibility over a wide range of temperatures and is resistant to solvents and fungus attack.
The hi-frequency molded leather heel guard and stability strap of these slip-resistant boots add durability and provide support, while an abrasion-resistant rubber toe guard provides longer wear. This toe guard protects the forefoot from rocks, increases life of the footwear, and will prevent splitting. Providing superior comfort and fit, the patented padded anatomical tongue helps to keep trail debris, sticks, and stones out of the footwear.
A pair of these Kodiak 310073 Men's Brown Rebel Puncture-Resistant EH Steel Toe 8" Boots offers comfort, protection, durability, and are also pleasing to the eye. The 8-inch height provides strong ankle support, making them great for walking in rough terrain where steep climbs or descents are expected. To help strengthen the eyelets, they also feature a reinforced rubber bottom eyestay. With so much to offer, you won't go wrong when you lace them up before your next work day.
