Thorogood Boots: Men's Waterproof 834-6446 Genflex2 VGS Military Boots
The military puts their people through rigorous tests. Soldiers run through ridiculous obstacle courses and face terrible challenges just in boot camp. And that's before they even face the really tough situations. These Thorogood 834 6446 Men's Black Gen Flex2 VGS Waterproof Military Boots are put through tough testing to ensure they can withstand that sort of pressure and wear. You don't even have to be in the military to appreciate everything these Thorogood boots can do.
The uppers of these waterproof boots are constructed from full-grain black leather to create a sleek look. The military style isn't just for show, either. Full-grain leather is tough stuff. It withstands water and wear, wind and even weird drill sergeants who yell and scream. Full-grain cleans easily, and in these men's boots it's been oiled, so it will be even more water-repellent. But full-grain is soft stuff that knows how to flex and bend with your feet, molding to whatever task life sets out before you.
And because these Genflex2 boots are waterproof, they'll keep your feet dry and protected when you're working or playing...or charging through an obstacle course. These military boots are blood-borne pathogen compliant, which means they can protect you against even invisible dangers. Use the lacing system to customize the fit. The heavy-duty YKK zippers allow feet easy access to the design. Velcro closures keep the design secure.
The waterproof protection of these Thorogood boots is part of the Thoro-Dri waterproofing system. But that's not all that's used to line the interior of these combat boots. Spacer mesh lining surrounds your steps in lightweight, breathable comfort. The soft footbeds are made with shock-resistant polyurethane, material that's even lighter in weight than rubber though it absorbs more force. Special EVA cushion flex comfort is integrated into the insole design to keep steps soft and absorb even more impact. Because they're removable, the insoles can be taken out and cleaned at any time.
The midsole layer of these black boots is made with compression-molded EVA foam material to keep it soft and cushioning. Impact 300 gel heel inserts are integrated into the midsole layer to make it even more force-absorbent. The gel system absorbs shock with each step that you take. Support is integrated into the design of these waterproof boots through the engineered composite shanks. Made without metal, the lightweight shanks follow your arches to prevent muscle strain and pain.
Gen-flex2 rubber outsoles support the entire design of these Thorogood boots. Shock-resistant rubber puts a bounce in your stride with each step you take. The Gen-flex2 design is tough. It’s resistant to corrosive oils, wearing abrasions, even heat. The multi-directional traction lug design and slip-resistant tread keeps your feet steady everywhere you go. Stitchdown construction keeps the soles securely in place, and means soles can be replaced if necessary.
These Thorogood 834 6446 Men's Black Gen Flex2 VGS Waterproof Military Boots are designed to put your feet through only soft comfort and strong support, none of that other bad stuff you don’t want to face.

I'm a Paramedic for a 911 service and am on the go all the time. These boots were very comfortable even right out of the box and no "break in" period. All I did was add a pair of New Balance 1200 inserts and they were ready to go. I highly recommend them.
