Need A New Pair Of Work Boots? A Boot For The Working Guy

Hi everyone, this is Eric with wehearthandmadeboots.com, and today I want to go in depth with some great men’s boot brands that can be found here at We Heart handmade Boots! When you think of that construction site you passed the other day, that nightmare traffic jam down the street because of the endless road construction, or even those beautiful handcrafted custom kitchen cabinets, what do you think these things have in common? They all required the skilled hands of a hard-working person. For them, a simple log of wood can become a masterpiece of epic proportions such as a beautiful handmade set of cabinets, a steel beam can transform into a mighty high rise apartment, and a load of asphalt is converted into a 3 lane highway. You need a boot that can endure the surroundings and workload that hard-working men require. Now, there are many types of work boots to consider. Almost all of which contain the iconic steel toe to absorb any impact from a falling object and preventing injuries. They also possess slip resistance soles for those workers who want to keep their feet on the ground. Many of these handcrafted men’s work boots possess heat resistance to keep the leather on the boot and keep it from peeling. There are a few styles that have other features useful for different occupations and can meet the need of your requirements such as rubber soles for those working with electricity or insulation for workers that deal with colder environments.

    I never knew John Deere made work boots. I certainly wouldn’t have guessed that they were hand made also. In my line of work, a hardy, steel toe work boot is a must. I will definitely take a closer look at John Deere. Do you happen to know if Red Wings are hand made? I prefer the boots that are around 8-9 inches tall rather than the cowboy boots since that is what we are authorized to wear.
