We live in a world of mock turtlenecks, faux fur, and clip-on ties. But when you step into these Thorogood 804-4379 Men's Brown American Heritage USA-Made Steel Toe EH Boots, you're going to know you're wearing them. They’re made to be Work Boots in every sense of the word, and there's nothing false or sneaky about it. After all, if you wanted tricks you'd go to a magician.
The lace-up, logger-style design of these Thorogood boots is fashioned out of brown trail Crazyhorse leather. That's a more fun way of saying it has a brown, slightly distressed finish. These steel toe boots are designed to look like that. It will take a lot of hard use before the leather actually does become distressed because leather is made for wear and tear. This leather is even more resilient because it's been oil-tanned. That keeps it more water-repellent, more flexible, and more hard-wearing.
You need your safety toe boots to be tough on the outside. You want them cushiony on the inside. That's why these men's boots are lined with cotton drill material in the vamp. Cotton drill is woven for durability. The shock-absorbing insoles are made in a dual-density design. That gives you two layers of cushioning comfort and softness when you wear these EH boots. The Poron 4000 comfort cushion insoles are light and foamy beneath your feet.
Rubber midsoles add a layer of supportive shock-resistance right into the heart of these American-Made boots. Bouncy rubber and composite shanks help take the pressure off your feet. Engineered composite shanks are lightweight and non-metallic. Unlike steel, composite doesn't conduct electricity or weigh very much. The shanks of these brown boots follow the curves of your arches, providing lift and support to prevent strained muscles.
The outsoles are made with lightweight polyurethane. This impact-absorbent material is lighter than rubber and soaks up even more stepping force when you wear these Thorogood boots. The soles are oil-resistant to withstand corrosive chemicals and slip-resistant to help you stand steady. The MAXWear wedge soles are made in a thick, highly durable design. The soles of these steel toe boots are finished with 90-degree heels. This sharp edge and extra lift gives you better grip on ladder rungs when you work.
Goodyear storm welt construction brings the leather uppers and the white wedge outsoles together in a secure bond. The soles of these slip-resistant boots are glued right to the midsoles as a first step. This tough bond is covered with a thin strip of leather. Then, waxed thread is stitched through the leather to further strengthen the construction around the sole. These work boots were made in the USA to be durable and dependable, and can be resoled.
These USA-Made boots were also made for safety. The soles are rated for electrical hazard protection. Footwear with EH protection absorb electricity, rather than conducting it. This pair was tested to withstand the CAN/CSA-Z195 18,000 volts safety rating. The steel toes, now they absorb impact. They meet ASTM F2413-11 M I/75/C/75 standards for workplace safety, standing tough against compression.
All these features add up to one thing you can count on and that's why these Thorogood 804-4379 Men's Brown American Heritage USA-Made Steel Toe EH Boots are a solid choice.
