Rocky Boots: Men's Goodyear Welt 501-8 Polishable Dress Leather Chukka Boots
When dressing up for work is a requirement, add a pair of these Rocky 501-8 Men's Black Polishable Leather Dress Chukka Boots to your work attire. Crafted from genuine full-grain leather, these black boots are comfortable to wear and can be polished at any time to maintain an immaculate, professional appearance.
Full-grain leather is used primarily in backpacking boots designed for extended trips, heavy loads, and hard terrain. The material is extremely durable, supportive, and water-resistant. In fact, leather can absorb up to 30% of its weight in water vapor and still feel dry. Furthermore, all-leather boots are less likely to change drastically in shape and flexibility over time, providing long-lasting comfort for the long haul.
The PRO-CELL mid and outsole system of these Rocky boots is made up of a removable, polyurethane footbed. This footbed has an excellent compression-set, which means it has the ability to return to its original shape even after multiple pressure applications. Polyurethane is a foamed structure that contains tiny air bubbles, making the material lightweight, flexible, and shock-absorbing. As a result, your feet will remain comfortable while absorbing impact more efficiently. The PRO-CELL footbed of these men's boots also features an extra-large integrated energy return heel plug for extra protection and shock-absorption in this area of the foot.
Underneath your feet, there's an insole board with an EVA cushion filler and midsole. EVA foam material is durable plastic that's soft, light, and flexible. The material of these dress boots will cushion and absorb shock to protect and comfort your feet throughout the day.
Not only will these black Chukka dress boots be able to maintain their shape and continue to make your appearance look sharp, but your level of comfort won't diminish as you stand. The PRO-CELL blown rubber outsole is air-injected, making it lighter, softer, and more flexible than traditional rubber. It delivers great cushioning and is oil-resistant as well. These features work together to help keep your feet protected and these Rocky boots in tip-top shape. For better stability, the outsole was made with the traditional 90-degree angle on the front of the heel. The heel will "bite" into a rung better to help prevent slipping and provide additional safety when going up and down ladders or walking on steep terrain.
Inside these slip-resistant boots, a non-metallic stabilizer is built into the footwear to provide additional comfort and support. Meanwhile, a double-padded polyurethane collar offers added protection and comfort for your ankles. This padded collar enhances fit and comfort, and will also help to keep debris, sticks, and stones from getting inside these Goodyear Welt boots.
Goodyear Welt construction is used to give these men's boots durability, shape-retention, and a solid platform that will keep you standing comfortably throughout hours of wear. The upper fabric, lining, and sole are stitched together to create a single unit for added strength. Goodyear Welt boots are extremely tough and are known worldwide as a superior method of footwear construction. They provide excellent traction and the best lateral stability of all boots. If the upper remains sound, you can easily have the worn-down outsole replaced by sewing new ones to the existing welts, giving them a life expectancy of 20 years or more.
These Rocky 501-8 Men's Black Polishable Leather Dress Chukka Boots are an excellent option if you're looking for quality dress boots that will keep your feet alleviated from pain. They're crafted on a classic, round toe "navy" last, a look that was first adopted by the US Navy for sailors' shoes that had to fit well and comfortably. Fortunately, you don't have to be in the US Navy to get a pair. Simply click on the cart button to place your order today.
