As a nice work boot for various occupations, the Timberland PRO Men’s Boondock 6 Inch Waterproof boot, offers that rugged, handsome appeal and additional protection and comfort that your feet crave when working long hours on the job. We have listed this particular boot in our Top 15 Work Boots for several reasons, and this section is to further elaborate on what these boots have to offer, and provide you valuable information so you can be sure that these boots would be an asset to the type of lives you lead and the everyday abuse you put your feet through at work.
These are a full grain leather waterproof boot with a premium waterproof membrane. Designed to keep your feet dry, so rest assured that working in wet conditions or job sites with puddles will not be an issue.
Comfort features associated with this specific boot include a padded collar, plus dual-density anti-fatigue technology cushions steps with two layers of shock absorbing comfort, plus a contoured insole supports adequately where needed, especially in the ball and heel area. In addition, Timberland also offers a 30 day comfort guarantee, so if you find that these boots aren’t as comfortable as you’d prefer, simply return them without a hassle.
The round composition toe protects your feet from impact, plus it’s equipped with an abrasion-resistant rubber toe cap. These boots are also EH rated to prevent you from getting shocked which are essential at work in areas where the possibility is apparent, such as electricians, or those who work around electrical components. The safety toe is non-metallic as well, so you can work in areas without setting off metal detectors. They are non-insulated, so we wouldn’t recommend them for extremely cold weather, but they do maintain their waterproof quality, so wearing them in rainy weather will protect your feet and keep them dry. If you are in search of a boot for extreme conditions, check ice fishing boots.
These Boondock boots are highly durable with their reinforced rubber abrasion resistant toe, Goodyear welt/cement heel construction, and fiberglass shank for structural support. Plus, these waterproof boots are reinforced with Ever-Guard leather that enhances durability in rugged working environments. Superior traction is incorporated with deep lugs that grip. Designed for a hardworking man, who requires boots to work just as hard as he does, they can withstand just about anything you put them through without falling apart during stressful situations. Triple stitching holds the boots together well.
This is a safety toe boot that is equipped with a lightweight composite toe that meets ASTM F2412-11 and F2413-11 safety standards for compression and impact. In addition, the reinforced rubber toe guard provides protection from abrasion.
The materials incorporated in these work boots consist of full grain leather with Ever-Guard that provides extra abrasion resistance, thermal plastic urethane outsole with deep lugs for traction and slip resistance, lightweight fiberglass shank for support. In addition, insoles have been treated with an antimicrobial to prevent odors.
They tend to run slightly heavier than a lot of work boots, but we contribute that to the additional safety features such as the rubber lugged outsole, safety toe, and reinforced rubber. Furthermore, they run wide, which is great for those with wider feet, but fit loose for those that require a narrower size. They are priced higher than other work boots that offer the same features.
There are several uses for these particular work boots. Light construction, landscaping, and electrical work come into mind when we think of these boots. However, we wouldn’t suggest them for hard industrial jobs, even though they are equipped with several safety features. They are also a nice choice for working outdoors, as they provide nice waterproof technology that keeps your feet dry. Click to read how to take care of your boots!
