Thorogood Boots: Men's 804-4451 Gen Flex3 Composite Toe Waterproof EH Work Boots
Many working conditions can pose a number of challenges when you're trying to get the job done. Wet weather, hard terrain, and electrical work can result in discomfort and injury. Keep your feet dry and protected with a pair of these Thorogood 804-4451 Men's Brown GEN-Flex Waterproof 8-Inch Composite Toe EH Work Boots.
Built for tough work, the upper of these Thorogood boots is made with a combination of waterproof, full-grain leather and 1200 Denier nylon. Full-grain leather is extremely durable and supportive, and used primarily in work boots designed for extended trips, heavy loads, and hard terrain. Waterproof leather is treated with silicon or other chemicals which cause the fibers to swell and lock out water. Top-quality waterproof boots will provide long-lasting service if properly maintained. Meanwhile, nylon is abrasion-resistant and durable to hold up against long work days. The lightweight material is also breathable to keep your feet cool and comfortable throughout the day.
Inside these brown boots, a Thoro-dri waterproof system provides more dry comfort. This waterproof, breathable membrane with waterproof taped seams helps to ensure your feet will stay dry in wet weather conditions when you wear these safety toe boots.
A comfort weave vamp lining around the boot's toe section will keep your foot cooler while you work. The cotton drill lining helps to keep moisture off of the foot, keeping you more comfortable when it starts to get hot.
Providing all-day comfort from the ground up, Thorogood's 8-inch boots were designed with a little to no "break-in" period. Part of the GEN-flex3 series, they feature a nine-layer system to cushion and comfort your feet throughout the entire day.
To soften your steps when you walk, there's a removable polyurethane footbed with special EVA cushion flex in these EH boots. Polyurethane is a foamed structure that contains tiny air bubbles, making the material lightweight, flexible, and shock-absorbing. This will provide the cushioning your feet need to keep you comfortable all day long. Meanwhile, EVA is durable plastic foam material which is soft, light and flexible to provide even more comfort. If necessary, you can remove the footbed of these Thorogood boots to clean or replace it at any time.
The compression-molded EVA midsole with an Impact 300 gel-heel insert provides additional comfort. Harder and more durable, compression-molded EVA will last for a longer period of time. In addition, the gel-heel insert of these men's boots offers support and protection against impact in the heel area of the foot. This shock-absorbing Interactive Visible Gel System (VGS) 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 improves comfort and will reduce repetitive impact stress in the heel area of the foot.
For additional comfort and support, an engineered composite shank is built into the nine-layer system of these Gen Flex3 boots. It forces the appropriate break at the ball of your foot, helping with arch support and relieving pressure off of your feet.
A GEN-flex3 All-Season rubber outsole will provide stability in all types of terrain. Rubber has superior slip-, puncture- and cut-resistance compared to PVC. The material of these slip-resistant boots is also extremely durable and resists bases, acids, alcohols, and diluted water solutions of most chemicals that are water soluble. This outsole includes a multi-directional traction lug design to provide a better grip, helping to reduce the risk of slips and falls.
Thorogood's GEN-flex work boots utilize Goodyear Storm Welt construction for added durability. The upper fabric, lining, and sole are stitched together to create a single unit for extra strength. Goodyear Welt boots are extremely tough and are recognized worldwide as a superior method of footwear construction. They also provide excellent traction and the best lateral stability of all work boots. In addition, you can have the worn-down outsole completely replaced by sewing new ones to the existing welts, giving them a life expectancy of 20 years or more.
Meeting CAN/CSA-Z195 and ASTM F 2413-11 M I/75/C/75 EH safety standards, these brown composite toe boots will keep your feet protected. The patented design of these Thorogood boots combines space-age molded polymer composite technology with ballistic mesh for added durability. Even though it's less weight than a traditional steel toe, the composite toe offers the same protection and will provide impact-resistance up to 75 pounds and compression-resistance up to 2500 pounds. The footwear is also 100% non-metallic, minimizing the chance of scratching work surfaces and making them security-friendly.
For additional protection, this pair of EH boots will provide a secondary source of electric shock-resistance protection against incidental contact with electrical circuits of 18,000 volts or less under dry conditions. They're designed with special heel and sole materials to provide extra protection against accidental contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors, parts or apparatus.
These Thorogood 804-4451 Men's Brown GEN-Flex Waterproof 8-Inch Composite Toe EH Work Boots are the real deal. While the 8-inch height is ideal in providing strong ankle support, the anti-roll bar heel support (ABHS) will prevent your foot from slipping inside the footwear.
