Keep reading to see why this is the appropriate hiker for your feet and profession.
In your line of work, you need to be wearing footwear that won’t slow you down. This Rocky 1st Med hiker is non-metallic, so it’s scanner friendly – no delays.
The black upper is made from mid-weight, soft, full-grain genuine leather with rugged and lightweight 900 denier Cordura® panels. The athletic-inspired styling looks great, and the recessed laces are practical.
The hiker height has been constructed to be just high enough to offer you protection and ankle support, but you will not find it to be constricting.
If your adrenaline starts rushing as you deal with an intense situation, it is only natural that your body may begin to perspire. The padded collar is lined with soft, breathable spacer mesh. The quarter is lined with Cosmo™ woven mesh for moisture management. These features are in place to keep you cool and comfortable.
There’s a TPU external skeletal brace that helps support your ankles and also fits snug in the heel of the boot to give you good torsional stability and maneuverability. Plus, in this Rocky 1st Med hiker there is a molded heel protector to protect from abrasion while driving or working.
You could be on your feet for hours at a time, there is no other option than to wear boots that have cushioning. In these Rocky 1st Med hikers there’s a lightweight, ergonomic, compression molded EVA footbed for cushioned comfort.
Safety is of the utmost importance in this hiker. At any time during the night you could be aiding someone on the side of a road, which is why it is so fantastic that this boot has reflective piping on the side to catch headlights or flashlight beams.
The boot is constructed using HydroGuard™ to be blood-borne pathogen resistant. It also features guaranteed Rocky waterproof construction. Of course, the tongue is fully gusseted to block liquids from seeping into the boot. These features will keep your boots dry, and you won’t have to be worried about cleaning up a mess as soon as you take these hikers off at the end of your shift.
To protect these Rocky 1st Med hikers from being penetrated through the bottom, there’s a lightweight, flexible, high-performance composite Lenzi® puncture-resistant plate. It is made from multiple layers of HT ceramic material – kind of like ballistic armor for your feet. It is certified PR to ASTM2412-11.
There’s a reflective strip in the heel to increase visibility by anyone approaching the wearer from behind, especially if you’re squatting, with the boot flexed. The rubber outsole has a broad, stable footprint and is abrasion, oil and slip-resistant.
