For a real outdoorsman, there's nothing as exciting as new gear or hiking boots. But new gear and boots isn't just about new--it's about all the possibilities that new gear represents. New sites, new vistas, new adventures, and new trails. ~The next time you go off to forge a new path, do it in a pair of Wolverine Men's 4980 Harden Brown Gore-Tex Waterproof Hiking Boots.
Brown, oiled Nubuck leather uppers look great, but they're sturdy enough to outlast their looks. Nubuck looks like suede, but is much more durable. When leather is split, the outer, thicker side is turned into "leather" and the thinner inside is turned into suede. Nubuck is made when the grain side of that outer piece receives a special treatment that makes it soft, flexible, and great looking. Nubuck is very flexible right out of the box, so makes a great choice for hiking boots.
Inside, these Wolverine boots are lined with Gore-Tex. That's a breathable, waterproof membrane lining that stops all water and moisture from making its way into your shoes. Don't worry about puddles, rainstorms, or even shallow streams--as long as the water doesn't top over your waterproof boots, the Gore-Tex prevents it from getting to your feet.
A removable, full-cushion footbed with a mesh sock liner cushions your feet for comfort and wicks away perspiration. We all know that dry feet are healthy feet, so preventing perspiration from swamping your feet is very important. Beneath the lining of these Gore-Tex boots, you'll find a compression-molded EVA midsole that absorbs shocks and supports your feet. This midsole also provides a great shield between your feet and any uncomfortable irregularities on the ground.
Great hiking boots have flexible soles that allow you to balance on uneven terrains. These Wolverine Harden Boots are made with cement construction for flexibility and reduced break-in time. Cement construction means that the soles are attached to the uppers with very strong adhesive cement, much like athletic shoe construction. The outsoles themselves are rubber--a material that gives you superior traction on all types of terrains.
These men's Wolverine boots have all the features a serious hiker needs for a fun and safe day on the trails. Start planning your next trip today--click and buy yourself a new pair of Wolverine Men's Brown Harden 4980 Gore-Tex Waterproof Hiking Boots.
