In Booth B-20100, Iron Age Footwear (St. Louis, MO) will showcase two new models of their Groundbreaker metalworking work boot line. The IA5011 adds extra puncture protection for scrapyards, fab shops, waste piles and floors littered with slag and sharp steel. Between a puncture-resistant plate and the Vibram® high-heat rubber outsole, this boot can keep any foot unbroken from the sharpest and hottest surfaces. It also features welted construction, Kevlar® high-abrasion stitching and a tough steel toe. Even though this boot is extremely durable and tough on the outside, it comes with the premium custom memory foam Bootbed™ footbed. The IA5019 expands a popular metatarsal guard offering by showcasing the exclusive Cushguard™ Internal Metatarsal Comfort and Protection Foam in a 6 in lace-up steel toe work boot. In combination with the welted Vibram high-heat rubber outsole and Kevlar stitching, this is a serious boot that is truly unbreakable from any danger from below or above. Again, protection does not come at the cost of comfort with the memory foam Bootbed cushioning the bottom of the foot and the Cushguard snugging the top.
These models join three existing metatarsal work boots to form an Unbreakable series of work boots. With groundbreaking innovation in comfort and protection for metals-related industries, the Groundbreaker breaks ground, not feet, all while making you feel unbreakable. “I’m on my feet 12 hours a day on rough and oily surfaces, and these Groundbreakers are, out-of-the-box, the best boots I’ve ever owned. Other guys in my line are already following along because they wear so well. These are absolutely our new go-to boots,” shares Patrick, a metal fabricator and devoted Groundbreaker wearer from Southgate, MI.
