Blundstone 985 Safety Mining Boa Work Boot, METATARSAL PROTECTION - Pre Order

Quick Overview



* Required Fields



An ankle-height version of the multiple award-winning 980 Underground Mining Boot, Style 985 carries all of the same revolutionary features. Waterproof leather, waterproof lining, Boa closure system and supreme safety features. Designed for the most extreme above ground conditions. We worked with Australian miners to find out exactly what they need, and then made it. Featuring world-leading technologies, our mining boots stand up to the harshest conditions. Made from a unique high quality patented leather that's soft and pliable yet offers superior waterproofing and resistance to abrasion, punctures and tears, while maintaining flexibility and support. The waterproof lining prevents liquid penetration but allows sweat vapour to pass through, ensuring your feet stay dry. Each liner bootie is tested to check the integrity of all seams. The Boa closure system provides custom comfort and easy-on, easy-ff. The Boa system uses aircraft-grade steel and is free of the stretch, weight and pressure points of traditional closure systems. A fully enclosed metatarsal guard made of moulded XRD material provides extreme impact protection without compromising on flexibility and comfort. Non-metallic penetration resistant insole compliant to BS EN ISO 20345:2004. Certified to: Standard AS/NZS 2210.3.2009 Classification 1-ID 2815. Certified to: Standard ASTM F2413-11 including electrical shock resistance (Clause 5.5) AU Sizing: 5-14, 7.5-10.5
