Proudly made in the USA, the Thorogood I-Met 8-inch Met Guard Work Boots feature the best materials and most durable construction. The full grain brown leather upper on these 8-inch boots don't just look great, they add durability and extend the life of the boot. Attached to the upper is a slip, oil, and heat resistant Alpha Plus Vibram outsole. And thanks to the Goodyear Storm Welt Construction, the boot is built to last but can be resoled if needed. This American made boot isn't just durable, but keeps your feet comfortable as well! The inside of the boots features a moisture wicking Dri-lex liner, a shock absorbing polyurethane insole, and lightweight composite shank for support. With all these great features, it's easy to stay on your feet all day long.
As great as the Thorogood 8-inch I-Met Brown Leather Steel Toe boots are, the main attraction to these boots is the all new I-Met Technology. Built with I-Met, these work boots have an internal metatarsal guard designed for maximum protection without limiting mobility. So what does that mean? You get an metatarsal guard that is completely integrated with the steel toe cap, locking it into place and preventing any potential trip hazard usually associated with met guard boots. Both the metatarsal guard and steel toe are ASTM F2413-11 M I/75/C/75/Mt/75, Steel Toe, EH Rated. And since it is an internal met guard, its pretty much invisible from the outside, so everyone else only sees a good looking leather work boot.

So what is a Metatarsal Guard good for?
Sometimes a steel toe boot just isn't enough when you're on the job. Sure a strong safety toe will protect your toes, but what about all the fragile bones and muscles on the top of your foot? Metatarsal Guards, or Met Guards protect this vulnerable part of your foot by completely covering it, blocking falling tools, stray sparks, or any other hazard you might face while working. A Met Guard boot is the ideal choice working with in s steel mill, with heavy equipment, machinery, or heavy containers. The Thorogood I-Met is an internal metatarsal guard, which gives you all the protection of a met guard with out sacrificing the look of a classic work boot. If a met guard is what you need, these are the work boots for you!
