These boots are made for working

These new lines of footwear from Danner and LaCrosse include work boots that stand up to concrete floors, the rugged outdoors and inclement weather.

Danner introduces the Quarry — a black, 8-in. boot with a Gore-Tex liner, polyurethane footbed and padded tongue and collar. Classic stitch-down construction allows for resoling, extending the life of the boot. Suggested retail price: $190.

The Granite boots from Danner are available in 6- and 8-in. styles. According to the company, they are ideal for indoor working environments, providing support for long hours on hard shop and barn floors.

The 8-in. Granite work boot can be purchased insulated or uninsulated. Both the 6- and 8-in. boots are available in steel toe or plain toe versions. This boot also features a Gore-Tex liner, stitch-down construction and reinforced stitching along the seams and out-sole toe area. Suggested retail price: 6-in.: $135 to $140; 8-in.: $190 to $210.

LaCrosse Footwear also introduces three new boots. The Alterra is a full-grain leather boot featuring a padded tongue and collar with a removable insole. A 90° heel gives the wearer stability when climbing ladders. The Alterra is available in men’s and women’s sizes. Suggested retail price: $74.95 to $79.95.

The Leatherneck boots are lined to keep feet dry and offer antibacterial protection in the lining and insole to prevent odor and fungal growth. The boots also feature a padded tongue and collar, a steel shank and removable inserts. LaCrosse says the soles provide extra cushioning, and abrasion and slip resistance. Suggested retail price: $114.95 to $129.95.

A new line of rubber overshoes from LaCrosse uses 100% waterproof, ozone-resistant rubber that stays flexible in cold weather. The overshoes also have slip-resistant soles, a 90° heel and reflective heel labels. They are available with two, four or five buckles. Suggested retail price: $34.95 to $69.95.
