Rockport Work Boots Perform Like Athletic Shoes, Thanks to adiPRENE by Adidas

Rockport Works Features adiPRENE

For more than 60 years, Adidas has been synonymous with athletic success. That’s because adidas knows how to make athletic gear that gives athletes what they need to be their best. For years now, adidas has been helping athletes improve their performance with the use of its adiPRENE technology, an advanced support system in the sole of its footwear.

The effectiveness of adiPRENE can be observed through a simple demonstration using a golf ball. You see, adiPRENE performs two distinct functions. Orange adiPRENE absorbs shock, while yellow adiPRENE provides energy rebound. When the golf ball is dropped on the orange (shock-absorbing) adiPRENE, nothing happens. It doesn’t even bounce. But when the golf ball is dropped on the yellow (energy rebound) adiPRENE, it acts like a super ball, bouncing all over the place. This has the same effect on your foot. The orange adiPRENE is placed in the heel, to give cushion and support and comfort, which eases fatigue and keeps you fresh. The yellow adiPRENE is placed in the front of your foot, acting as a spring, which gives you that extra boost in your step, making each step lighter and less tiring. Continue Reading…

What is a Podiatrist?


When your discussing footwear and foot protection, often the term podiatrist will come up. You may wonder what a podiatrist is exactly. Podiatrists specialize in medical care of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. They must have a doctor of podiatric medicine (D.P.M.) degree from a college of podiatric medicine. They must pass written and oral board examinations and must obtain a state license to practice podiatric medicine. Like other doctors, podiatrists work in private practices, hospitals and clinics. They also retain the ability to become professors at colleges of podiatric medicine, department chiefs or hospital administrators. There they demonstrate their knowledge of foot, leg and ankle problems which may lead to special footwear needs. Continue Reading…

Footwear Sizing Differences: Men, Women, Children

Differences In Footwear Sizes

The difference in length of 1/3 inch applies to men’s, women’s and children’s footwear. A problem with the system involves the way it was developed. The sizing scales for each gender are different. You can even find differences in American versus European sizing, but that different topic. Unfortunately, in America we do not start with a small number for length in children and go to the largest number for men.

Children’s sizes start at 0 and go to 13, then start over with Size 1 and usually go to 4. Men’s length sizes can start at Size 4 and normally go all the way to 16, while women’s sizes may start at 2 and go to 12 or 13. These length sizes vary, so to properly measure and fit, you should use a measuring device and inventory for the particular grouping you are fitting.

One constant you will notice in men’s and women’s sizing is the difference of two sizes. That is, on the shoe size scale comparison, a man’s 8 will be the same length as a woman’s 10. But remember that this is only toe length. When fitting, keep in mind that the lasts are probably designed differently for the male or female foot.

Iron Age Work Boots: No Longer a Thing of the Past

Iron Age Work Boots

Iron Age Work Boots Will Be Available In 2012

It was an exciting time. Optimistic, really. The worst war the world had ever seen had finally ended, the enemy defeated. More than four million American men returned home with goals and dreams and a drive to succeed. To build those dreams with sweat on their brow and determination in their hearts and work boots on their feet. It was 1918. And those work boots were Iron Age work boots.

Iron Age Boots was the very first branded “safety-toe” footwear. The first Iron Age Boots debuted in 1918, after the end of World War I. These brave American men had risked their lives on the battlefield, and they certainly weren’t about to risk a toe on the job site wearing a pair of soft toe work boots. So they turned to this new brand of work boots to keep them safe. They trusted Iron Age’s new “steel toe technology.” And several generations later, American men, and now women, are still trusting Iron Age Boots today. Continue Reading…
