Rocky assembled the upper of this Fort Hood Public Service work boot with full-grain leather (the material will feel amazingly smooth yet maintain exceptional durability) and panels of 1000-Denier nylon (very breathable, lightweight, yet remarkably strong). The leather on these black boots is polishable, so you can keep them looking in top form. The lace-up design is great for adjusting the fit of these work boots, but a convenient side zipper allows you to get the footwear on/off quickly. The padded collar helps prevent these boots from digging into the back of your legs and feels very comforting. Although, terrific peace of mind stems from having Rocky waterproof construction; this guarantees that the interior of these men's work boots will remain utterly dry, which allows you to feel comfortable working in unfavorable weather conditions. Also, during the scorching hot days, you'll appreciate wearing a non-insulated boot, because this will prevent you from feeling overly warm. The non-metallic stabilizer provides fantastic steadiness and allows you to maintain a much more solid stride. You will be pleasantly pleased with the amount of flexibility and comfort that derives from the hard-wearing rubber SWAT outsole.
