Wolverine Boots offers a wide variety of work styles that contain many different features. With all of the technology, it is sometimes difficult deciding what the features do for your feet and which boots you should buy. This guide will help you better understand the technologies and make it easier to decide which features are best for you.
Steel-Toe: Steel-toe boots and shoes are rated ASTM F2413-11 1/75 C/75. Steel-toe boots help protect your feet from hazardous objects.
Composite-Toe: Composite-toe boots and shoes are rated ASTM F2413-11 1/75 C/75. These boots are both lightweight and non-conductive. Composite-toe shoes will also help protect your feet from hazardous objects.
Non-metallic Safety-Toe: Non-metallic Safety-toe footwear is ASTM F2413-11 1/75 C/75 rated. These boots are undetectable in electronic security environments such as airport security. They also reduce cold transfer in colder environments.
Metatarsal Guard: Wolverine metatarsal guard boots and shoes are rated ASTM F2413-11 1/75 C/75 MT/75. Metatarsal guard safety-toe boots will help to protect both the top and front of your foot from falling or rolling objects.
Puncture Resistant: Wolverine puncture resistant footwear meets ASTM F2413-11 PR, CSA Z192-02 and EN ISO 20345; 2004 standards. Puncture resistant boots feature an internal insole, reducing the possibility of puncture wounds to the bottom of your feet.
Electrical Hazard: Electrical hazard boots and shoes are rated ASTM F2413-11 1/75 C/75 EH. Electrical hazard features help in protecting the wearer from electrical current on dry surfaces, thereby significantly reducing the chances of electrocution.
Static Dissipating: Static dissipating footwear has outsoles and construction designed to prevent the buildup of static electricity on uninsulated surfaces.
Waterproof: Waterproof boots and shoes are made with a variety of features designed to keep water out including, waterproof leathers, sealed seams, and heavy-duty construction.
Thinsulate®: 3M® Thinsulate® is low bulk insulation that dries quickly and provides protection from the cold even when wet. Thinsulate® is made up of thousands of tiny microfibers that trap insulating air to protect you from the elements.
CarbonMAX®: Wolverine CarbonMAX® safety-toe uses nanotechnology to produce a strong, lightweight and more comfortable boot. It features a thinner toe cap wall that provides more toe room and added comfort. While lighter and better fitting, the CarbonMAX® safety-toe is still designed to meet ASTM standards.
DuraShocks® : Wolverine DuraShocks® incorporates a state-of-the-art energy return system with advanced components to provide ultimate performance and comfort. It includes optimized cushioning in the heel and innovative sidewalls that compress and absorb shock and return energy.
GORE-TEX®: GORE-TEX® fabric makes your Wolverine boots both waterproof and completely breathable. Boots with GORE-TEX® lining allow perspiration to escape but does not allow water to get in.
