Wolverine Boots: 4104 Men's Barkley Waterproof Insulated DuraShocks Work Boots
It's easy to see that these Wolverine 6" Waterproof DuraShocks Barkley Work Boots 4104 are quality products. They leather glows, the Vibram sole announces itself with a bright yellow wave, and the "Wolverine" logo speaks for itself.
Starting with rugged, brown, full-grain leather, these Wolverine boots wrap your feet in a sturdy, long-lasting upper. Naturally water, oil, and abrasion resistant, leather has been the footwear material of choice for centuries. In fact, leather is so durable that archaeologists have found a leather shoe dating to 5500 years ago in a cave in Armenia. Some technology never goes out of style!
But advanced footwear materials like Dri-lex and Thinsulate make modern shoes a lot more comfortable than those ancient ones. The Dri-lex lining inside these DuraShocks boots keeps your feet dry and wicks sweat away from your feet. 400 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation keep your feet warm in these Wolverine boots. Whether you're trekking in the forest or in a parking lot, your feet will stay dry and warm.
Ancient people had all sorts of horrible podiatric problems (did you know there's a science called paleopodiatry?). They didn't have the advantage of removable, full-cushion, dual-density polymer footbeds in their shoes. These removable footbeds keep your feet cushioned and absorb shock. Dual density means that some parts of the footbed are less cushiony so they don't compress over time. A polyurethane midsole also cushions your feet. They also didn't have DuraShocks Comfort technology for their footwear. With DuraShocks boots you have comfort pads in the forefoot and heel to help provide exceptional, and often unbeatable comfort, for your longest work days.
Can you imagine soling your shoes with pieces of wood, or just stuffing straw or cotton above leather soles to protect your feet? Today, Viram makes top-of-the line shoe soles. Vibram designs soles that provide ruggedness and flexibility in all types of conditions and temperatures. These Wolverine Barkley Boots have Wolverine DuraShocks Vibram rubber lug outsoles. They're thick and rugged, have great treads, and are specially-formulated for great traction. The soles are attached to the insulated boots with direct attach construction. This creates a water-tight bond by fusing the sole to the fibers of the upper. The outsoles are also oil-, water-, abrasion-, chemical-, heat-, and slip-resistant.
No, you'd never wear 5500 year old leather shoes that came out of some cave to work today, but, obviously, there's something to be said for leather's durability. These Wolverine 6" Waterproof DuraShocks Barkley Work Boots 4104 combine the best of long-lasting and rugged materials with modern textiles that protect and insulate feet. Buy yourself a pair and try to wear them out--we dare you!
