Your job may require you to purchase work boots that meet certain safety features. Yet, you want a boot that won’t only be safe, but will also be rugged, comfortable, and durable. When you go to find a work boot with these qualifications, you begin to think that it is going to be a rather difficult challenge. The Rocky 10” IronClad Internal MetGuard Pull-On Boots are exactly what you have been looking for.
If the Rocky IronClad name is any indication, you should know that this series is all about heavy-duty work boots.
This is a very masculine looking boot. The upper is constructed from premium, heavy-duty, full-grain leather that has been oiled. The foot and shaft have been triple-stitched to be able to withstand lots of use.
The Rocky 10” IronClad is a pull-on boot, and this feature allows for you to be able to get into and out of your boots quickly. This is great for the early mornings when you need to get out the door quickly, because you may have hit the snooze button one too many times. Also for when you return home, and just want to pull your boots off and have a relaxing evening.
One could argue that there is nothing more wretched than being at work and being in a complete state of misery because your feet are wet. The lunar knit linings are soft and durable, but are also moisture wicking. The guaranteed Rocky waterproof construction is in place to make sure that your feet remain dry and comfortable.
The safety features of this Rocky IronClad boot are truly phenomenal. They are in place to keep you and your feet unharmed while you work. Safety Features:
- The steel toe is certified to the HIGHEST level of ASTM F2413-11 for impact and compression standard specifications for performance requirements for protective (safety) toe cap footwear
- Certified EH (Electrical Hazard) to meet ASTM F2413-11 requirements
- The internal metguard is certified to meet ASTM F2413-11 requirements
With the EH (electrical hazard) protection… They are designed to impede (reduce significantly) the flow of electricity through the shoe and to ground, thereby reducing the possibility of electrocution. It should be noted however – per ASTM requirements – EH boots are designed to be a secondary source of protection in an Electrical Hazard environment.
The internal metguard protection is not thick and bulky, instead it is the d3o advanced metguard which uses specially engineered phase-change material made with intelligent molecules that flow as you move, but on shock lock together to absorb the impact energy. You can bend and squat in comfort. You won’t even know it’s there – until you need it.
The #6468 boot features genuine Goodyear construction, and has a beaded storm welt to sustain shape-retention, and to help impede mud and water from getting into your Rocky IronClad Pull-On work boots.
You have no idea what your feet were missing until you’ve worked a shift in an IronClad boot. Some of the features of the boot that you will grow to appreciate most include: an (extra durable) steel shank for stability; a lightweight, shock-absorbing and flexible EVA midsole; a vented, cushioned polyurethane footbed; 7-layer slip- and oil-resistant rubber outsole.
If you are looking for a work boot that meets ASTM safety standards, while also being rugged, comfortable, and durable then the Rocky 10” IronClad Internal MetGuard Pull-On Boots are the right choice for you.
