Whether you need safety shoe footwear for work or around the house is really up to you. Many guys in the Marinette, Wisconsin, and Menominee, Michigan area work or know someone who works in a light, medium, or heavy industrial occupation that requires safety footwear. Knowing users will wear work footwear 10 to 14 hrs a day, safety shoe manufacturers build their footwear to hold up to long periods of standing and walking. With few exceptions, most people here prefer to wear safety shoes off the clock as well.
Keen Utility and Danner footwear are both major brands based in the Northwest corner of the US. Known for rainy weather in the region, a waterproof membrane within the work boot has become a mainstay, and the discerning customer has now been asking for waterproof boots. Danner has had a partnership with Gore Tex since 1979 and is the first footwear company to incorporate a waterproof membrane (Gore) into its footwear using a solid, no-stitch, booty. Timberland Pro, focusing on the Midwest, and even Ariat boots with the Western-inspired styles have a wider array of waterproof boots. Michigan and Wisconsin are known for camps and cabins throughout, and guys here like to wear the right footwear while cutting wood or cleaning up around the house. Michigan is a hub for antique and muscle cars, and guys working in their garage appreciate the protection from welding sparks and the support their work footwear provides.
#GetOutside this fall 2020, and experience nature with the comfort of the right work boot.
