Wolverine W04821 Buccaneer Boot
This flexible, lightweight, waterproofed Buccaneer Boot for men is designed for movement. Stay comfortable with thick cushioning in the footbed and padded collar.
A 6” lace-up leather shaft keeps your ankle supported while the mesh lining manages moisture content. The outer portion of the boot is constructed with smooth, full grain leather with a rounded toe.
- The Wolverine Buccaneer is completely waterproof, which is essential for an individual who works outdoors. Not only do your feet stay dry, they also remain warm in colder temperatures.
- Excellent support for feet and ankles, after the initial break in the boot, fits like it was made specifically for you.
- These boots are created for long wear and walking. Feet are kept comfortable from the thick cushioning, alleviating any pressure or shock from continuous movement.
- Break in time takes a little longer than expected, however very comfortable after that initial time. Plus, Wolverine offers a 30-day comfort guarantee, and will offer you a full refund if you find these boots aren’t right for you.
- These boots are not made for ice and snow, however, they are sufficient for wet and cold weather conditions
- Laces tend to break easily; this probably can be prevented by tightening boot from the bottom up.
Wolverine W02292 Guardian Boot
The Wolverine Guardian is a 6” nylon shank boot constructed in full grain leather with removable full cushion insole. It’s carbon fiber, rounded safety toe, gives that added protection when needed.
A CK Mesh lining is moisture controlled to help prevent interior sweating. In addition, these boots have a slip resistant sole to keep you steady on your feet and are electric shock resistant.
- Unlike other safety toe boots, these are particularly lightweight and easy to wear.
- The 6” shank offers excellent support for your ankles, especially if you are in a line of work where the possibility of a sprain could occur
- Comfortable right out of the box. These Guardian boots do not require a long break in period.
- Perfect for wide feet, the rounded toe allows for some additional room without feeling cramped.
- The insole could be thicker, however, by adding an updated insole you can get that extra padding
- These boots are not waterproof and are not great in the snow. You can, however, apply a water-resistant sealant to help.
Wolverine W03123 Durashock SR Boot
The Durashock SR boot is as tough as they come for a work boot. They offer every aspect needed to feel confident on the job knowing these boots are designed to keep you safe.
The advanced slip-resistant tread keeps you secure on your feet even in wet conditions. A polyurethane outsole resists stains such as oil.
Plus, the leather upper keeps water out but allows your feet to breath, keeping them comfortable and dry. Absorbing four times the shock force as rubber, but lighter by 1/3, the removable dual-density, polymer footbed is an added comfort.
- The tread on the Durashock SR boot is designed to divert water away, allowing for greater traction by gripping to surfaces and avoiding slips and falls in wet environments
- Extremely comfortable, fit like a glove and is more like wearing slippers than boots
- Tough and durable, they last a long time even when tested in extreme working conditions
- There was only one issue that we could find with these boots, they are not waterproof just water resistant. However, waterproofing applications could help with this.
