Thorogood Boots: Men's Steel Toe 804-4911 Met Guard EH USA Made Work Boots
In an old nursery rhyme, a chicken gets hysterical because she thinks the sky is falling. Children laugh when they hear the tale, but the Working Man understands that anyone can get a little hysterical after getting bopped on the head. Falling objects are dangerous, and not just to your head. That's why these Thorogood 804-4911 Men's Brown 8-Inch USA-Made External Met Guard Steel Toe EH Boots protect your feet from dangerous falling sky objects, too.
These Thorogood boots are built with a foundation of dual-density polyurethane. The two-layer soles are lightweight and shock-absorbent. They soak up impact so you can step softer, on lighter feet. The soles of these steel toe boots are finished with 90-degree heels that give your steps a little bit of lift. This gives you more stability on ladder rungs. Slip-resistance gives your steps more stability everywhere else. Ball to ball stitching adds reinforcing strength.
And that's just the very bottom. The upper portions of these EH boots are fashioned from full-grain leather. This soft material is non-processed hide. Cows don't wear it buffed and sanded and stretched and beaten, so why should you? In its natural state, full-grain leather is durable against wear and so flexible it stays soft even in wet weather. Because it's been oil-tanned, the leather of these met guard boots is even more water-repellent.
The 8-inch uppers of these safety toe boots are a handsome, rich shade of brown. They contrast gorgeously against the forest green lining inside. The Dri-Lex lining isn't just there to look pretty. It wicks moisture away from skin, so you stay less sweaty. The lining matches the midsole layer of these American-Made boots, which you can actually see. It looks like a green ribbon on top of the soles, but it's really a layer of shock-resistant rubber.
Lightweight polyurethane footbeds, on top of cushioning Poron, protect you with every step you take in these Thorogood boots. The insoles are shock-absorbing and soft, and made to be removable so you can clean them up whenever you want. Engineered composite material, lighter in weight than steels, supports your steps. The composite shanks match the natural bend in your feet to prevent muscle strain and soreness.
Goodyear storm welt construction holds the uppers and the soles of these safety toe boots together in a secure, durable bond. Through welt construction, the soles are first glued to the midsoles. Then the bond is stitched together, with moisture-resisting waxed thread no less, to give you a sure, stable base. Soles are now replaceable for long boot life. These work boots were made in the USA because that’s where you live and work, too.
EH safety and protective toe caps keep your feet safe against danger. The electrical hazard rating means the soles of these men's boots absorb dangerous electricity, and that means you won’t. They meet CAN/CSA-Z195 18,000 volts electrical shock resistance standards. The protective toe caps and metatarsal guards keep your feet safe against dangerous impact and compression. The steel toes meet ASTM F2412-05 standards for safety.
The sky may not be falling, but there's other dangerous stuff that will. These Thorogood 804-4911 Men's Brown 8-Inch USA-Made External Met Guard Steel Toe EH Boots protect you from it.
Boots felt great on day one, almost zero break in period! Boots are a year old and still feel like new. No other boot has lasted me this long at work and been in this kind of shape. Ordering my second pair but they will remain in the box till I need them. Hands down best work boot I've ever owned. And American made!
