ArmyNavyUSA.com is offering a deal on Wolverine’s 6″ DuraShocks Slip Resistant Work Boots for $99.95, and all of their boots over $89.99 qualify for free shipping through January 30.
Toolmonger previously covered Wolverine work boots in 2007 and in 2008 with Sean’s detailed Hands-On review of the 8″ Raiders. This winter, since half the U.S. is covered in ice, these #W02038 slip resistant, waterproof boots might be handy to have on hand (or foot).
These Wolverines have a removable “double density footbed” for cushioning, a lightweight, durable polyurethane midsole, and a fiberglass shank to stabilize the foot. Wolverine notes that the fiberglass weighs 75% less than steel, reducing wearer fatigue — though this model is also available in a steel toe (style #W02053). The outside is Nubuck sueded leather with pigskin upper. All in all, it’s a good-looking, rugged work boot from a reliable company at a decent price.
