|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|
|H-Plate™ suspension system-stabilizing -energy returning with 4 responsive quadrants-part of revolutionary welt design|
|shock absorbing midsole ribbed spine flexes with each step-honeycomb heel expands to absorb impact, low density EVA foam is toe-heel cushioning|
|High density comfort-contoured footbed with anti-microbial properties|
