Outdoor Retailer/SLC

Outdoor performance footwear is lightening its load…with new construction and materials impervious to the weather, delivering the kind of comfort wearers expect---having worn athletic shoes in the warmer temps. No compromise on the performance however…and at great prices too---all under $180 for boots that last a looong time.

Wolverine-part of the same named corporation---really dominates the workboot world---and for its Fall 2014 collection of outdoor Expedition, All-Terrain and Outdoor Casual hi's/lo's-the same details to comfort and durability are present.

Big news on the comfort part- the Wolverine ICS™ (Individual Comfort System) patented ---of course, that's an embedded cannot feel gel disc in the heel of some kicks- lets the wearer personalize the hard-stiff-to softness level of support desired, underfoot, We have an old version of this in a pair of Wolverine hiking boots from a few years ago-and can vouch for "this" really working. Nifty.

Other details that protect-ArmorTek™ heel and toe bumpers, Vibram® or burly rubber lug outsoles, PC Dry Silver Waterproof Membrane linings, and compression molded EVA midsoles for comfort and energy return with each step.
