Heavy-duty work boots

Three “Old School Tough” work boot series—Troweler, Galvanizer, Groundbreaker—join the company’s Iron Age Footwear line. The outsoles of the Troweler feature slip-resistant tread on traditional lugs with extra stabilization for climbing and balancing on grating. The boots bear the Shift Kicker abrasion-resistant toe guard and new BootBed footbed.

The Galvanizer provides top-of-the-foot comfort and protection with Cushguard, an internal metatarsal guard. Welders who tested prototypes in real fabrication shops noted that the slip-on and lace-up models were “super comfortable” with “lots of cushion and snugness around the foot.” Both feature Scuff Tough abrasion-resistant toe and heel guards.

The Groundbreaker is being extended with two high-heat outsole metatarsal guards. The work boot has a traditional external metatarsal guard, the slip-on version the Cushguard. Both feature the Vibram TC4 Alpha high heat rubber outsole, Kevlar stitching, and Bootbed footbed. — Warson Brands, St. Louis, 314/721-8500;
