Slide on these Wolverine Contractor LX CM Boots and I can promise that you will never want to take them off. Even after long hours of demanding work on the feet, wearing these boots just feels natural.
If I had to sum up the level of comfort that these men’s work boots offer in one word, it would easily be “unreal”.
I’ve tried on a lot of running shoes and work boots in my day, but these take the cake when it comes to comfort. An athletic-fit in the middle part of the foot and heel, plus a wide and spacious toe box, makes these boots a winner in my boot. Factor in Wolverine’s Carbon Max technology for added protection/comfort and you’ve got a new standard for all work boots out there.
However, even with all the foot-hugging padding, improved fit, and roomy interior space inside, these boots still remain surprisingly lightweight. In reality, the rugged exterior is rather deceiving, as you’d expect these work boots to perhaps be super heavy and or somewhat clunky. The truth is, these boots are far from it. The weight of these work boots is as close to perfection as it gets for me.
They aren’t too heavy nor are there too light. Walking around with these boots on your feet don’t feel overly taxing on the leg muscles, and it certainly doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a pair boat anchors around. Overall, they feel extremely natural.
Wolverine Contract LX CM Review
While the lightweight aspect of the Wolverine Contractor LX CM has its appeal, there are a whole host of other reasons as to why I’ve come to love these boots. For instance, each is constructed with a premium waterproof full-grain leather upper. Of course, there’s an abrasion resistant toe too.
For job sites plagued with puddles and mud, these boots will ensure you never have to relive another miserable work day with wet socks. Meanwhile, the leather and abrasion resistant construction will ensure you can extract every single penny spent out of your work boots for years to come. Not to mention, triple and double stitching, alongside nicely coated thick metal upper lace hooks, offer a touch more in terms of durability.
To keep your toes cool on even the hottest days through backbreaking work, each boot features a breathable and moisture wicking mesh liner. Gone are the days of sweaty and soggy socks! The moment you put these boots on feels like the same as the moment you take them off. When it comes to the Wolverine Contract LX CM, that tropical humid feel just doesn’t even exist.
When it comes to moving around, these boots offer plenty of flexibility while still remaining extremely sturdy. A rubber lug outside and ladder shank offer grip where it need to most, making easy work for climbing roofs, ladders, and other surfaces. Personally, what I really enjoy is the outsole pattern which has a solid mix of small groves and large grooves.
Regardless if you’re on solid concrete with a spill or loose, fine gravel that’s damp from a previous downpour of rain, you’re going to have plenty of traction. The slip and oil-resistant construction make every step a confident one.
