In-depth Review Of The Georgia Giant Romeo Women’s Work Shoes

For long hours on the job (and for your life when you’re off the clock), you need shoes that are comfortable and easy on the feet, but are also tough and durable. That’s why Georgia Giant Romeo Women’s Work Shoes is such a great choice! The full-grain leather uppers are low-maintenance, with a full lining that keeps your feet dry and comfortable through your entire shift and beyond. A bumper guard around the welt area protects the uppers against abrasions and scuffs and helps give these work shoes a little extra rigidity and toe protection.

The stretchable elastic gore on the sides is there for ease of slipping in or out of these shoes, and there’s a mesh-covered, cushioned insole and resilient EVA midsole that disperse your weight on hard surfaces. Add it all up and you get a set of features that prevent your feet from getting tired by the end of the day, and enhance comfort for hours on end.

The Georgia Giant Romeo Women’s Work Shoe is more than just a comfortable shoe that’s easy on the feet. It’s also a top-quality shoe that’s built for long service and durability in a tough working environment, and it can give years of long service as a work shoe and as casual wear. It features Goodyear welt construction, meaning it can easily be resoled at a shoe shop when it wears out, and includes a steel shank for durability, arch support and stability. Its lug sole is oil-resistant and great for traction on all kinds of surfaces, and the 4” height is great for stability and support for the heel and instep. And of course, everyone knows that a black shoe is an easy match for all kinds of clothes and colors.

Don’t settle for a pair of shoes that might be comfortable, but wears out in six months or a year and has to be replaced. Life is too short and you’re too busy for that.

Safety Features

safety features
  • Oil Resistance: In some work environments, your shoes might be exposed to oils that can break down and damage their soles. The Georgia Giant Romeo Women’s Work Shoe is treated to reduce the chances of this type of damage, and can help provide extra traction on slippery surfaces.
  • Electrical resistance: No nails are used in the construction of the Georgia Giant Romeo Women’s Work Shoe, reducing the chance of them conducting electricity to the ground (provided the shoes are dry).

About the Construction of the Georgia Giant Romeo Women’s Work Shoe 

Georgia Giant Romeo Women’s Work Shoes

Every shoe features an insole, midsole and outsole. The insole is the layer on which your foot actually rests, and the firmer the insole’s material is, the more rigidity the shoe will have. A softer insole means more comfort, but also means a shoe that’s less stable and more flexible. The midsole, sandwiched between the insole and outer sole as the name implies, is designed for impact reduction and energy return as you take a step and it “springs” into shape again.

Ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA), as featured in the Georgia Giant Romeo Women’s Work Shoe, is a dense, expanded foam rubber material that’s used in hundreds of products. EVA midsoles are designed for excellent protection against impact and are designed for years of long wear. The thicker midsole in this shoe is recommended by podiatrists to head off tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and other foot problems. Interestingly, EVA uses no chlorine in the manufacturing process and is considered to be a more eco-friendly product.

Men’s Legend DuraShocks CarbonMAX Safety Toe 6″ Boot Review

If your day involves doing backbreaking physically demanding tasks or handling heavy machinery, workplace safety should be a priority. When it comes to workplace safety, it’s always best to lay down a solid foundation. In this case, this means getting the best work boots that will not only protect you from job site hazards but allow you to do your 100%. However, shopping for the best pair of work boots can be frustrating. We’ve all had that experience of buying a pair that is only good in pictures or the store but doesn’t deliver in the site. Will the Men's Legend DuraShocks CarbonMAX Safety Toe 6" Boot be such a pair?

When it comes to buying work boots, it’s typical to think that comfort and performance have a give and take relationship. A feature-packed pair will likely to be heavier or more cumbersome. On the other hand, a more comfortable pair might not have the safety features you need. So which type of work footwear is the Legend DuraShocks CarbonMAX? Let’s take a look at its features.

First Impression

At first glance, you can see that the Wolverine Legend looks like a tough pair. It has a fairly aggressive exterior but it’s definitely a good-looking pair of boots. The leather upper is the highlight here and it looks very well-made. The stitching looks to be on-point and adds to the toughness of Legend. The midsole is bonded to the upper and outsole through the direct-attach method. This gives the boot a very solid feel and looks like it’s not going to come apart soon.

CarbonMAX Safety Toe Technology

Perhaps the most noteworthy feature of the Wolverine Legend is the CarbonMAX Safety Toe Technology. According to Wolverine, the CarbonMAX make use of nanotechnology to create a boot that has the combination of strength, comfort and lightweight quality. The safety toe meets the ASTM standards, so it will protect your feet from potential injuries caused by falling objects. The toe box itself is quite spacious which gives the Legend better comfort, especially for those with wider feet.

H-Plate Suspension

Another feature of the Legend that is worth mentioning is the Wolverine H-Plate suspension. Lateral stability is something that you want from your work boots. However, ramping up stability means you need to compromise in other areas. In this case, comfort is usually sacrificed. Wolverine has managed to strike a balance of both with the H-Plate suspension. The H-Plate aims to stabilize the feet when exploring uneven terrain while returning energy with each step.

DuraShocks Comfort Technology

This is yet another proprietary technology by Wolverine. The aforementioned H-Plate is actually integrated with the DuraShocks system. The Wolverine DuraShocks system is designed to provide both comfort and performance while incorporating with an all-new energy return system. DuraShocks is made up of several advanced components.

There’s the cushioning in the heel that provides flexibility with each step. Next is the sidewalls that are used to absorb shock and return energy. The third component is the H-Plate that is responsible for stability. Last is the rubber lug outsoles with chiseled edges for excellent traction and resistance to slippage.

Other Features

Now that we’ve highlighted the three main technologies of Wolverine Legend, it’s time to talk about its other features:

  • Waterproof: Like all good work boots, the Legend has excellent waterproofing qualities. The full-grain leather upper does a great job of repelling water. The membrane utilizes Waterproof Plus to add another layer of waterproofing to the pair. You should have no problem wearing this pair while walking on wet grass and mud.
  • Mesh Lining: When wearing boots, your feet need to breathe. Otherwise, you’ll be in for an uncomfortable experience. The mesh lining not only ensures that your feet are kept cool, it also wicks away any rogue moisture that penetrates inside.
  • Removable Ortholite Cushioned Footbed: Ortholite is excellent for long-term cushioning and providing breathability. The footbed can also manage moisture for a cooler, healthier boot environment. Plus, you can just easily remove the footbed when washing.

The Bottom Line

bottom line boots

So does the Wolverine Men's Legend DuraShocks CarbonMAX Safety Toe 6" Boot succeed in balancing both comfort and performance? There is no shortage of performance and comfort features in this pair, so it has definitely succeeded. The most impressive aspects of the Legend are definitely the proprietary technologies. Wolverine has done a great job of elevating this work boot from the competition.

The Wolverine Legend can be pricey for most people. However, we think that the price is warranted considering the quality that you are getting. This is perhaps the best pair of work boots that Wolverine has to offer.

Wolverine work boots are trustworthy because their founder designed them to be so.

One complaint a lot of people have about their work boots is that they don't breathe well, resulting in stinky, smelly boots. You know the ones I'm talking about. Those boots that your wife sticks on the back deck immediately after you take them off in order to air them out. Wolverine knows this is an issue and they installed a mesh lining and a fully removable cushion footbed. The mesh allows your feet to breathe throughout the day and the cushion footbed can be washed and aired out whenever you need.

Safety


The rubber outsole is built to withstand water, dangerous chemicals, heat, oil and other things that could cause harm to your feet. The shaft of the boot reaches high enough to protect your ankles and keep them warm if you're out in the elements.

Customers who purchase these boots often stick with the same model for many years. Many say they are able to get three to four years of wear out of their boots before needing to buy a new pair. That's an amazing deal!

Investing in a pair of work boots can be pretty pricey if you really want to get a high-quality pair that will last a while. Another huge perk about Wolverine work boots is that they are a really affordable price. This means that you'll get the amazing quality, reliability and durability without the expensive price tag. Hello, sign me up for that!

One thing to keep in mind is that if you're planning to be working out in the cold or ice on a regular basis, these may not be the best choice. They aren't fully lined, which means they aren't designed to keep your feet warm in cold temperatures. So, keep that in mind and be sure to consider when you'll be wearing them before deciding if this is the boot for you!

All in all, Wolverine work boots are amazing. They've been around since 1893 for a reason, and the fact that they're one of America's leading brands of work boots is no surprise. Obviously, their attention to detail and innovation will continue to keep them at the top of the game, bringing amazing products to consumers everywhere.
