Thorogood Boots: Men's Black 804-6447 Composite Toe Waterproof Gen Flex2 Military Boots
When you're getting ready for work, put on a pair of these Thorogood 804-6447 Men's Black Gen Flex2 Waterproof Composite Toe EH Military Boots to see you through the day. These lightweight Thorogood boots will keep you dry, comfortable, and safe while you're on the job. They're also 100% non-metallic, making them security-friendly and less likely to scratch up working surfaces.
The waterproof, tumbled full-grain leather upper of these composite toe boots will keep your feet dry in wet conditions. Full-grain leather is used primarily in work boots designed for extended trips, heavy loads, and hard terrain. The material is extremely water-resistant, durable, and supportive to provide the strength you need to get through tough work days.
Tumbled leather is created with the use of small pebbles that gently abrade the material to give the leather a unique, pebbled finish that looks like soft wrinkles. This waterproof leather of these safety toe boots is also oiled, making the leather soft and flexible so it requires less break-in time. The oiling process also helps to improve the leather's resistance to water, stains and damage.
Inside Thorogood's military boots, a spacer mesh lining and Thoro-dri waterproof system will keep you comfortable and dry all day long. The spacer mesh lining incorporates thousands of closely-spaced holes into its weave to keep you cool and dry when it starts to get hot. Meanwhile, Thoro-dri is a waterproof, breathable membrane with waterproof taped seams to keep your feet dry and protected from the elements. The membrane of these waterproof boots is also capable of resisting blood-borne pathogens for at least one hour when tested according to ASTM F 1671 standards. As a result, it'll help limit the growth of bacteria to keep your feet fresh and healthy.
The GEN-flex2 collection represents an achievement in these uniform boots design. Thorogood's tactical uniform footwear meets and exceeds the demands for maximum comfort and performance of professional law enforcement personnel. GEN-flex2/VGS technology combines premium materials with an exclusive, net fit flexible welt construction for all-day comfort.
First, a polyurethane footbed with special EVA cushion flex softens your steps while you're working in these black boots. Polyurethane is a foamed structure which contains tiny air bubbles, making the material lightweight, flexible, and shock-absorbing. This will cushion your feet to keep you more comfortable throughout the day. You can remove the footbed of these men's boots to clean or replace if necessary. Meanwhile, EVA is durable plastic foam material made of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate resin. The material is soft, light, and flexible to provide even more comfort.
Next, a compression-molded EVA midsole with an Impact 300 gel-heel insert will provide the support you need when you're on your feet all day. Harder but more durable, compression-molded EVA will last for a longer period of time. In addition, the gel-heel insert of these Thorogood boots offers extra support and protection against impact. VGS-300 technology is designed to absorb an astonishing 300 foot pounds per square inch, compared with 75 in other footwear brands. As a result, the interactive cushioning design of the VGS improves comfort and reduces repetitive impact stress in the heel of your foot, where you need it the most.
For additional comfort and support, a built-in, engineered composite shank forces the appropriate break at the ball of your foot. This not only helps with arch support, but will also help to relieve pressure off your feet.
These men's military boots also feature a GEN-flex2 dual-density rubber outsole for maximum performance. Rubber has superior slip-, puncture- and cut-resistance compared to PVC. The material is extremely durable and will resist bases, acids, alcohols, and diluted water solutions of most chemicals that are water soluble. This outsole of these Gen Flex2 boots includes a multi-surface, slip-resisting tread design to provide a better grip and help reduce the risk of slips and falls.
Goodyear Storm Welt construction was used to assemble the footwear. The upper, lining, and sole of these slip-resistant boots are stitched together, creating a single unit for added durability. Goodyear Welt boots are known worldwide as a superior method of footwear construction. They provide excellent traction and the best lateral stability of all work boots. As long as the uppers remain sound, you can have the worn-down outsole replaced by sewing new ones to the existing welts. This will give them a life expectancy of 20 years or more.
For protection, this pair of composite toe boots meet CAN/CSA-Z195 and ASTM F 2413-11 M I/75/C/75 EH safety standards. The composite toe combines space-age molded polymer composite technology with ballistic mesh for added strength. Less weight than a traditional steel toe, the composite toe offers the same amount of protection. As a result, it provides impact-resistance up to 75 pounds and compression-resistance up to 2500 pounds.
In addition, these EH boots provide a secondary source of electric shock-resistance protection against incidental contact with electrical circuits of 18,000 volts or less under dry conditions. Designed with special heel and sole materials, EH-rated footwear will provide extra protection against accidental contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors, parts or apparatus.
Slip on a pair of these Thorogood 804-6447 Men's Black Gen Flex2 Waterproof Military Boots before heading off to work in the morning. A heavy-duty YKK side-zipper with velcro closure allows for easy on and off so you can get ready in no time at all.
