WOLVERINE WORKS' OUTDOORS


old ad -never out of style boot-from Wolverine store

A subway ride around 3:05PM  on certain lines- gets filled with construction workers ...at the end of their work day. One thing in common-durable protective footwear that can take whatever elements or hazardous conditions a building site might provide.

While the uppers always look beat up-inside...a good multi-purpose workboot (and outdoor boot) requires a lot of footwear construction know-how.

At Wolverine...we recently saw the layered foundation/structure that goes into their  best selling work+outdoor styles...empowered by the brand's new DURASHOCKS® Comfort Technology-a fully integrated energy returning technology.

Wolverine™ maximum energy return- H-Plate-treaded durable  abrasion resistant rubber lug outsole impervious to slick water-oil, heat and chemicals (a workbook must), compression pad on heel absorbs shock and returns energy
