Wolverine Boots: Men's Brown Harden 4978 Steel Toe Gore-Tex EH Hiking Boots
Does the thought of going on a long walk make you groan? The trail feels a lot tougher when you don't have on the right hiking boots. These Wolverine Men's Brown 4978 Gore-Tex Steel Toe EH Hiking Boots are just right for any trail you've got to face. If the thought of staying dry and comfortable appeals to you, you're going to find these hikers mighty appealing.
These Wolverine boots are made with oiled Nubuck leather. The medium brown shade is detailed with basic black and bright orange to make the entire design pop with distinct style.
The oiled Nubuck leather feels as good as it looks. Nubuck has the strength of full-grain leather that resists wear and tear, but it's also got the soft feeling of suede leather. You get the best of both strength and comfortable flexibility when you wear these safety toe boots. Thanks to the oiled finish, you'll also get it to stay that way. The oil makes the leather of these EH boots even more weather-repellent, so it stays soft and pliable around your steps even in the ugliest conditions.
Thin Gore-Tex membranes keep you dry in those ugly conditions when you wear these men's boots. Lightweight Gore-Tex waterproofs your feet against bad weather, but it doesn't stop the flow of air. The membranes stay breathable around your steps to keep your waterproof boots ventilated. That means skin stays cooler and less sweaty, and that makes walking a whole lot more pleasant.
Full-cushion sock liners in these steel toe boots soften your steps from the tips of your toes to the backs of your heels. Pull the removable liners out of these waterproof, Gore-Tex boots at any time for a cleaning to manage odor, but put them back in before you go back on the trail. Along with the compression-molded midsoles, the footbeds absorb impact so your stride stays more comfortable. Lightweight EVA foam in the midsole layer adds airy cushioning.
The tough rubber soles add the strong support to these Harden hikers. Durable, shock-resistant rubber keeps your steps buoyant, even when the trail ahead gets rough. Glued cement construction seals the rubber soles of these Harden boots into place with a hard-wearing, water-resistant bond.
Rated for EH safety, the soles of these Wolverine boots are resistant to electrical hazards. They absorb dangerous electricity whether you find it on the hiking trail or at the workplace. To make sure you really are ready for anything life throws your way, these steel toe boots are finished with steel toes. Rated for ASTM F2413-11 M I/75 C/75 protective footwear standards, the steel absorbs impact and compression before it can damage your tender toes.
Wear these Wolverine Men's Brown 4978 Waterproof Steel Toe EH Gore-Tex Hiking Boots, and the thought of walking might actually make your smile. It's not where you walk...it's how you feel when you do it.
Watch out if your in a cold area of the country....

I have had these boots for a few months now and my opinion of them is very poor. When i received the boots, i noticed they were very light and i felt the construction reflected that fact. Now that i am in the dead of winter the other problem is i'm always slipping because the soles i believe become too hard in cold weather . I would suggest being real careful if your looking to buy this boot. I am not impressed with the Wolverine Co.
