Materials Used To Make Shoes And Work Boots

Work Footwear Components

Leather is the preferred shoe upper material to make work boots and work shoes. The following qualities make it one of the best components for work boot and work shoe manufacturing:

  • Breathability: Pores in leather allow fresh air to circulate inside the shoes.

What is a Podiatrist?

Podiatrists

When your discussing footwear and foot protection, often the term podiatrist will come up. You may wonder what a podiatrist is exactly.

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…

Methods for Waterproofing Boots

waterproofing WPS Blog

Nothing is worse than working all day with wet shoes. So, when spending money on a brand new pair of boots, it is important to protect them by correctly waterproofing.

Why should you care about waterproofing your boots? It is quite simple. Boots range in price, but can be very expensive and your hard-earned money might as well be sent down the drain if you don’t take the time to take care for your new investment.

Most boots are made from leather, which is animal hide. This hide is made of tiny fibrous structures, which account for leather’s long-lasting durability and strength. If those tiny fibrous structures are damaged by moisture or chemicals, the leather will dry out, crack and end the life of your boots. Continue Reading…
