John Deere Men’s Safety Toe Met Guard Miner Boots JD9600


There’s an old folk song you’ve probably heard before. It’s about a girl, darling Clementine, who was the daughter of a miner. Here’s the problem: Her father dropped the ball. Why? He gave her herring boxes to wear on her feet. Not shoes, not boots, but boxes without topses. If only he’d had John Deere JD9600 12-Inch Internal Metguard Safety Toe Black Miner Boots, she’d have fared far better.You don’t have to dive down deep for coal to appreciate this sturdy pair. Anyone can benefit from wearing them, for a variety of professions. They’ve got what everyone wants–performance and safety features, all wrapped up in a comfortable package. The black, oiled leather uppers are flexible and breathable, as only leather can do. They also feature 3360 ballistic nylon PU coated shafts to make them waterproof. But don’t think your feet will smother…the genuine Cambrelle II moisture-wicking linings are treated with Agion antimicrobial so they retard odor-causing growth. The removable Air Flow comfort orthotic inserts allow maximum circulation to keep things nice and dry inside, too. Your feet will stay warm in all kinds of conditions, thanks to 400 grams of Thinsulate ultra insulation lining each boot.For all that comfort, you won’t have to sacrifice protection or durability. The flexible internal met guards meet ASTM M I/75 standards. They also feature tempered steel shanks, TPU outsoles and a polyurethane midsole to hold their form. A non-removable, stainless steel and puncture-resistant full sole plate is like armor around each foot. Plus, the safety toes meet ASTM I/75 C/75 standards. The Electrical Hazard rating meets ASTM standards for the best in jobsite safety. From miners to construction workers, the John Deere JD9600 12-Inch Internal Metguard Safety Toe Black Miner Boots are an excellent choice for footwear that feels great and offers an army of safety features. They’re way better than herring boxes without topses, we assure you.Sizes Manufactured: Medium 7 – 12,13 | Wide 8 – 12,13
