This is the traditional Chore boot with a Poron® XRD® Metatarsal Guard, offering extreme impact protection. Poron® is a soft, flexible, wearable protective material that gets hard when impacted. It offers consistent, repeated impact absorption for reliable performance throughout the life of the boot. Underneath your foot, a steel shank adds additional arch support and puncture protection. The breathable Airmesh lining keeps your feet cool and dry throughout the work day, and a flexible topline collar keeps dirt, debris and chilly air out of the boot while you work.
