What happens when you take a damp towel, put it inside a plastic bag and leave it there for 8 hours? You don't even have to run this little experiment to know that nothing good will come from this behavior. That's why we know how good for your feet these ~Rocky K060 Men's Brown Governor 8-Inch Gore-Tex Waterproof Insulated Work Boots actually are. They're waterproof, just like your basic protective plastic bag. But unlike that suffocating material, these comfortable work boots are made to be breathable.
It all begins with leather and nylon, neither of which contains any plastic. Leather is a natural material that comes off of cows, and when have you ever seen one of them looking uncomfortable? They stand around, they lay down in hay and they chew grass all day long because they're so completely relaxed. That's the power of really good leather, and these Rocky boots are made with good leather. It's full-grain Nubuck, stuff that looks like suede, but performs like durable full-grain. This material is flexible but firm, strong but soft, and always good-looking. Kick plates at the back of each let you kick your insulted boots off without creating a lot of damage.
The 8-inch brown uppers of these waterproof boots are made with nylon, too. This synthetic material is engineered to be highly abrasion-resistant, but that's not all. Nylon is also breathable. It will help to keep air flowing around your feet. Even when your feet are perfectly dry, they need healthy air flow.
And your feet will be perfectly dry when you wear these men's boots. That's due to the Gore-Tex fabric. Gore-Tex is totally waterproof, but it's also breathable. The lightweight, ultra-thin Thinsulate insulation keeps you warm even in the worst of weather.
The 800 gram weight Thinsulate keeps your feet warm even in below-freezing weather conditions. Terra suspension footbeds cushion your steps taken in these Governor boots with the power of blown urethane. Rubber-like urethane is soft and lightweight to keep your steps feeling comfortable.
Goodyear welt construction keeps Vibram outsoles in place under your feet. Durable Vibram rubber soles are shock-absorbent and durable. Even as they absorb impact, they help you spring back when you step down. Goodyear welt construction uses more than one method for keeping soles in place. First, the soles of these Rocky boots are glued directly to the midsole layer to create a watertight bond. Next, this bond is stitched together with waxed thread that resists moisture and chemical damage. Repairable Goodyear welt construction is designed to be firm and long-lasting.
Keep your feet dry, healthy and ready to work when you keep them in these Rocky K060 Men's Brown Governor 8-Inch Gore-Tex Waterproof Insulated Work Boots.
