Outdoor work requires rugged, durable work footwear, like this pair of ~Chippewa Men's 20091 USA-Made Brown EH Steel Toe Boots. Chippewa first developed logger boots for lumberjacks of the great upper Midwest back in 1901. Today, these styles aren't just worn by the logging industry, but also by men who perceive this silhouette to be the ultimate in rugged, outdoor footwear.
The uppers of these Chippewa boots is manufactured of chocolate brown apache leather, making these men's boots both durable and flexible. Less likely to change drastically in shape and flexibility over time, all-leather boots will provide long-lasting comfort. Apache leather has a high level of wax and oil applied during the tanning process. Oil-tanning makes the leather soft and flexible, so it requires less break-in time. This process also improves the leather's resistance to water, stains, and damage.
Both the 5 iron Texon insoles and 4 iron Real Flex midsoles provide flexibility with every step you take. The material flexes as you walk to provide comfort when you're on your feet all day. Providing additional flexibility for your feet, there's also triple-ribbed steel shanks inside of these USA-made boots. It forces the appropriate break at the balls of your feet to help with arch support.Drill vamp lining inside the men's footwear will keep you cool and comfortable throughout your busy day. The cotton-type material pulls moisture away from your skin to help keep feet comfortable when temperatures rise and you start to sweat.

In addition, the lugs are angled to provide substantial edging capabilities, offering the traction you need on rugged terrain.
Goodyear Welt construction was used to attach this soles to the uppers of these slip-resistant boots. The uppers are drawn over the last and held temporarily while the Welt is stitched to the uppers and inner soles. The soles of these EH boots are hand-stitched through the Welt to complete the process. Not only does this construction allow you to repair and resole your American-made boots, it also improves lateral support and stability. Leather Welts are very difficult to twist and this lateral support is especially important on uneven terrain. The leather expands and contracts with temperature changes, decreasing the potential of splitting or breaking and extending the life of the Chippewa footwear.
