The DRONE Jr is constructed with high quality materials chosen for their weight, strength and value. Optimized plastics are thicker where support and reinforcement are needed and tapered in non-critical areas. A 1-buckle height shin plate wraps across the shin and instep to completely guard the front of the foot. Instep panels are long enough to fit a wider range of calf and leg sizes. A tapered vinyl and foam gaiter wraps the top of the boot offering a barrier which resists dirt from entering. 3 replaceable PU molded buckles float on their bases allowing unrestricted alignment. The durable synthetic boot material resists wear, requires less breaking and retains its shape longer. A width sculpted and shaped wrapping toe box incorporates slip resistant shifter ridges. Thick synthetic leather covers the inner side of the boot guarding it from heat and wear. The steel shank adds comfort and support. The sole is attached to the upper using a time tested welted construction. A Stain resistant Mesh lining is combined with durable synthetics providing a non-slip interior.1-buckle height shin plate Plastic heat guard Gaiter to keep dust out3 replaceable PU molded buckles Generous fit in the toe box.
