Wesco Boots: Highliner Lineman Boots 9710
When we say these Wesco 9710 Boots are made for the "top of the line" Working Man, we're not just going for a cheap pun (although it's been known to happen). These boots are made for climbing by a company in business for many decades. Their factory is located right in the old US of A-Scapoose, Oregon, to be exact. These premier quality crafted Highliner boots can often last for five years or more of rugged treatment, and can be repaired when needed, to last some more. These boots will serve your needs well, whether you're an electrical worker, a phone lineman, a cable repair guy, or a tree surgeon. Hey, if you can't trust folks from Scapoose, whom can you trust? As one Working Man said, "you cannot beat the Highliner boot when climbing a 90 foot pole or walking through mud to get to a underground transformer." OK, so he's not a poet.
If you're scaling the heights, you want a boot that provides superior protection and support, and that's where Wesco comes through with ten inches of durable full-grain leather topped by a rolled-leather facing to help keep the weather out. Solid brass studs and eyelets structure a full lace-up for firm fit. Contributing to your confidence in this rugged footgear's sure footing are a generous steel shank for solid support and a Stytherm heel counter with full-leather pocket to keep your heel in place for better balance. (Stytherm is the strongest counter material on the market. It's crush-resistant and resistant to water and perspiration.) There are even leather half-slips for added support in the arch.
A steel sideplate in the sole and recessed metal breastplate in the ample heel help guard you from gaff or splinter attacks, and there is a hard toe and extra leather side patch on each boot for further protection.
Extra comfort is provided by the OrthoLite Drilex Comfort Foam Slip-in Inserts which soften your step while transporting moisture away from your skin so your feet stay dry, cool and comfortable, which is more than we can say about some supervisors we've met
Highliner soles are made by Vibram, known in the industry for using an especially durable rubber compound. This boot uses a Mini-Lug sole which utilizes fine treads to improve traction while minimizing build-up of dirt and mud-your debris stays outside when you go into the house.
The Wesco 9710 Highliner is the boot other boots aspire to. And at a price like this (go ahead, compare!) you're getting a deal you can't refuse if you want the best.
Be advised that when you order this boot Wesco requires an extra 2-3 days processing time regardless of which type of shipping you choose.
