Wolverine Work Boots Review: A Look Into Men’s W02421 Raider Boot
It's not often you find a boot you know you can trust. I know, I know. It sounds weird to talk about trusting a boot. But you're putting your feet in something every single day. You need them to get you through a long day on the job site. There's nothing worse than getting 4 hours into your day and realizing your feet are killing you. Wolverine work boots are trustworthy because their founder designed them to be so.
G.A. Krause had a lifelong dream of starting a company that provided high quality, innovative products to consumers. In 1883 his dream came true. A decade of hard work, dedication and determination later, he and his employees were producing 300 pairs of shoes every day. Headquartered in Rockford, Michigan, Wolverine Shoe and Tanning Corporation is a thriving company to this day.
One of their top-selling boots is the Wolverine Men's W02421 Raider Boot. Here’s some details and information on the product to help you with your search for the perfect work boot.
Wolverine Men's W02421 Raider Boot
- Removable, full-cushion Wolverine Multishox insole for all-day comfort and support
- Reliable grip from slip, oil and abrasion-resistant Multishox lugged rubber outsole
- Breathable CK mesh lining
This boot is part of Wolverine’s MultiShox Welt Boots collection. They provide an extra amount of cushion and flexibility to keep your feet comfortable all day. Made of genuine leather, the MultiShox footbed is designed to help absorb pressure and shock. So if you’re stompin’ all through the woods or boulders on the job site, these beauties will keep your feet in one place.
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.
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.
