Let’s face it guys; there are times when you literally need a boot made of armor for some of today’s goddamned jobs. I mean, you’re not going to put your feet right in the line of fire now, are you? As risky and as hazardous as your job may be, it’s nice to go in knowing that you’ll come out in once piece. So, what do you do when you literally need armor for your feet? Well, get the Men’s 40000 Met Guard Steel Toe Boot from Timberland of course! But before you buy, how about a little insight on this shoe first?
What Are You Buying?
The ultimate form of foot protection; that’s what you’re buying. The Timberland PRO 40000 is designed with peak functionality and dependability in mind. Much like all other boots in the Pro Series, this boot is built to withstand daily abuse by hardworking professionals. That’s right; whether you’re in heavy equipment, manufacturing, metal handling, welding, construction or even assembly, you’re definitely in the right place. Apart from delivering peak levels of protection and durability, these kickers are also far more comfortable and luxurious than they look. It is a Timberland after all, am I right?
Still not convinced that this is the work for you? How about checking out the top features?
Rock Solid Construction
The Timberland PRO 40000s boast of some of the toughest construction and protection on the block. The manufacturer relied on Goodyear Welt construction to put together the Everguard leather and sole with a durable mechanic bond. That’s right; this bad boy isn’t coming apart even in a hurricane. But that’s not even the best part; these sturdy boots are engineered to resist heat, oil, and abrasions like it was their primary job (it actually is). And that’s all thanks to the heavy duty, impact resisting metatarsal shield that keeps your entire foot safe from bone crushing force.
Apart from a met guard that protects against drops, impacts and compression forces that would otherwise break your bones, the Men’s 40000 work boot from Timberland also packs quite the impressive list of protective features. For starters, there’s the ASTM toe protection that extends all through the midsole for even more protection against punctures. Then, the boot is also rated with a special EH classification that keeps you safe in the event of an electrical hazard. And did you see that Kevlar flame-resistant and self-extinguishing thread? You could walk through lava with this thing!
Everguard leather may be known for its rigidness and superior toughness, but Timberland found a way to make it far more flexible and easier to break in. From the top, the 40000 steel toe boot features a padded collar for a secure fit and a comfortable feel all day long. But that’s not even the best part; this piece of footwear art incorporates the popular Pro Series 24/7 Comfort Suspension System to reduce foot fatigue, support the arches and cushion your feet every step of the way.
What We Didn’t Like
If you work in a job where you could actually lose your feet, then there’s nothing not to like about these wonder boots. However, buyers have claimed the Pro Series welding boot does feel a bit bulky, stiff and pretty much rigid all over.
