The Irish Setter 83608 does not make it into the top three because its PU footbed does not lie close to the Carhartt CMF6371’s five-ply, padded OrthoLite insert. Although the steel tip in the security department is ahead, the CMF6371 is still better because of its lightweight structure and waterproof function. However, the 83608 collection is still a strength as it comes from a Red Wing brand!
The 83608 Steel Toe Boots offer premium quality with full grain leather and direct, non-wrap construction. The structure offers enough comfort and flexibility to walk all day long.
The brown leather, the woven vamp and quarter nylon lining, the triple-stitched seams in golden color and the antique brass D-rings and studs add to the superior quality and look tough and eye-catching. In fact, the style for many people will be the reason to buy the boots. The rustic look goes with just about anything, and you can carry it everywhere from job sites to casual trips.
Working on your feet all day consumes energy. Therefore, the boots you are wearing should be designed for comfort. These shoes offer great relief thanks to the direct-attached design and dual-density sole. It’s logger style with a thick sole and even thicker heels.
Together with the molded heel and non-metallic shaft, the dense footbed and sole can absorb a significant amount of shocks and bumps. These are ergonomically designed to fit your foot shape. So you get the best support and comfort, no matter how difficult your work environment is.
The shoes comply with the electrical safety standards for ASTM. In addition, the steel cap protects the feet from falling heavy objects and stumbling on sharp objects. The marking-free outsole has a PU-V handle, which provides excellent resistance to abrasion, chemicals and oil. Their non-slip and heat-resistant properties are also decent.
If you are a plumber or serve in the automotive industry, these boots can be your daily companion, unless your job involves working in the wet state.
