Thorogood Boots: Men's Waterproof 834-6991 Non Metal Gen Flex2 Trooper Military Boots
Stay comfortable on your feet all day wearing a pair of these Thorogood 834-6991 Men's Black GEN-Flex Trooper Side-Zip Military Boots. GEN-flex2 tactical uniform footwear is the complete package and are Thorogood's most comfortable and performance-enhanced uniform boots ever produced. These aggressive state-of-the-art Thorogood boots incorporate advanced comfort and stability technology, flexible platform construction, multi-surface slip-resisting tread design, and durable stitchdown architecture in a lightweight, 100% non-metallic design.
The GEN-flex2 collection represents an achievement in uniform boot design. A removable polyurethane footbed with special EVA cushion flex will soften each step you take while wearing these waterproof boots. Polyurethane is a foamed structure containing tiny air bubbles, which make the material lightweight, flexible, and shock-absorbing. As a result, your feet will be cushioned and more comfortable while you're working. You can even remove the footbed of these men's boots to clean or replace it at any time. Meanwhile, EVA is durable plastic foam material made of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate resin. This material of these non-metallic boots is soft and light, as well as flexible, to provide the comfort you need.
For more soft comfort, the midsole of these Gen Flex2 boots is made of compression-molded EVA with an Impact 300 gel-heel insert. Compression-molded EVA is harder but more durable, so it'll last for a longer period of time. In addition, the gel-heel insert offers support and protection against impact. Shock-absorbing VGS-300 (Visible Gel System) 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 where it's needed most -- in the heel of these Thorogood boots.
Thorogood's Gen-Flex military boots also feature a built-in, engineered composite shank, which forces the appropriate break at the ball of your foot. It not only helps with arch support, but will also help to relieve pressure off of your feet.
On the bottom, a GEN-flex2 oil- and slip-resistant rubber outsole features a tread design which will provide a better grip on many surfaces. Rubber has superior slip-, puncture- and cut-resistance compared to PVC. The material of these slip-resistant boots is also extremely durable and will resist bases, acids, alcohols, and diluted water solutions of most chemicals that are water soluble.
Goodyear Storm Welt construction was used when assembling this pair of men's boots. The upper, lining, and sole of these Trooper boots are stitched together to create a single unit for added strength. Goodyear Welt boots are known as a superior method of footwear construction. They're extremely durable and provide excellent traction and the best lateral stability of all boots. If the uppers remain sound, you can replace the worn-down outsole by sewing new ones to the existing welts, giving them a life expectancy of 20 years or more.
The waterproof, tumbled full-grain leather upper of these Thorogood boots will keep your feet dry in wet weather. 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, providing the strength you need to get through the work day. Tumbled leather is created with the use of small pebbles that gently abrade the material, giving the leather a unique, pebbled finish that looks like soft wrinkles. The leather is also oiled, which makes the material soft and flexible so it requires less of a break-in period. The oiling process also helps to improve its resistance to water, stains, and damage.
Inside, these black boots feature a spacer mesh lining and a Thoro-dri waterproof system to keep you comfortable throughout the day. The spacer mesh lining incorporates thousands of closely-spaced holes into its weave, keeping your feet cool and dry when the temperature rises. Thoro-dri is a waterproof, breathable membrane with waterproof taped seams to ensure your feet stay dry and protected from the elements when you wear these waterproof boots. This membrane is capable of resisting blood-borne pathogens for at least one hour when tested according to ASTM F 1671 standards, helping to limit the growth of bacteria and keep your feet healthy.
A heavy-duty YKK side-zipper with velcro closure allows for easy on and off. When that alarm goes off in the morning and you need to leave in a hurry, put on a pair of these Thorogood 834-6991 Men's Black Gen-Flex Trooper Side-Zip Military Boots to get through your hard-working day.
