Ever since we spent some time in a pair of 8″ Wolverines, I’ve become a fan. I’ve generally worn only really cheap boots because hey — they all seem the same, right? Maybe not. While I won’t argue that there’s nothing wrong with a $25 pair of work boots, the $170 Wolverines kicked some serious ass in the shop and around town.
But sometimes an 8″ boot is just a little bit tall and heavy for me. Some days I’d like the same protection and slip-resistant soles, but with a shorter, lighter, and maybe black shoe. Enter the 6″ pictured above. It’s pretty much waterproof, made of leather with a Gore-Tex lining. And it features the same slip-resistant soles as my current pair.
Now if I just had a spare $160 burning a hole in my pocket.
