Wolverine Tarmac boot updated with knob fastening
US-based footwear maker Wolverine has updated the Tarmac range of light, safe and strong work boots with a pair that replaces laces, zips and gussets with a knob-operated Boa Closure System
The company says the new Tarmac Boa boots, which exceed both national and international safety standards, have carbon fibre toe caps, making them 50 percent lighter than steel-cap boots and stronger under compression loads.
They also feature ‘ArmorTek’ toe bumper and heel counter guards which are lighter than a rubber bump cap and three times more abrasion resistant.
"Additionally, the innovative Boa Closure System offers on-and-off convenience like never before," Wolverine says. "A simple turn of a knob allows for fast, hassle-free adjustments."
Other features of the Tarmac Boa are full-grain leather uppers, reflective EVA midsoles, 300 degree heat resistant outer soles and padded collars.
Available in stores around Australia from late February, the wheat-coloured Tarmac Boas have a boot height of six inches (cm), are available in US sizes 7-13 and have a recommended retail price of $220.
