Blaine 20028 6 inch lace-up boots by the Chippewa Boot Company are made from a durable and rugged black Odessa leather upper. Soft and flexible Black Odessa is a type of oiled leather that is resistant to water in addition to stains. This commando or logger style boot features a soft toe, brass eyelets, speed hooks in addition to a stable, supportive, and tough as nails outsole.
The Vibram Montagna 132 lug outsoles are specifically designed to provide maximum traction on wet or dry surfaces. This style of Vibram outsole was originally used on climbing expeditions to the peaks of K2 and Mount Everest so you know these are going to be reliable. These hard-wearing outsoles are also great at reducing shock in addition to foot fatigue for all-day wear.
A Goodyear welt/sewn seat construction makes the Blaine ridiculously tough while providing excellent traction and stability. In a sewn seat construction, the boots are firstly Goodyear welted all around the bottom of the boots and secondly, cement is applied from heel to toe. This type of application provides extreme durability in addition to strength.
The inner guts of the Blaine are just as impressive. This boot is lined with Ruby Dri-Lex, a fabric designed to wick away moisture from the foot in addition to being abrasion resistant. Dri-lex knit lining has also received a seal of approval by the American Podiatric Medical Association.
Also included are durable 5 iron Texon insoles to enhance breathability in addition to wicking away moisture. These insoles will keep your feet comfortable and dry all day. Order a half-size down from your normal sneaker/running shoe size as these run a touch larger. Requires a little break-in period for an optimal fit.
