These Rockport Works shoes are low cut and stylish like oxfords, but they have details that look like athletic shoes. Which are they? Fooled you, because they're neither. These Rockport Works shoes are the perfect pair of work shoes. They're made with a tough, comfortable and safe design. If you don't need to feel that way at work, then where would you? Visible stitching adds depth and detail to the dark brown uppers. Inside the non-metallic shoes is abrasion-resistant nylon mesh material that creates a lightweight lining. Nylon mesh releases heat, instead of keeping it trapped around your feet. The material is also moisture-wicking, and made to pull sweat away from skin to keep you cool and dry. The entire time you're wearing these athletic work shoes, your steps will be softened with EVA foam. It's from the cushioning inserts that sit just under your feet. Theyâre lightweight, airy and removable. The insoles can be cleaned at any time, and they help soften your steps all the time. These safety shoes are made with adiprene by Adidas, technology that creates a smoother step. Itâs because of the mixture of EVA foam and shock-resistant rubber in the heel, a composition designed to absorb shock and reduce stepping impact. The same technology in the forefoot of these composite toe shoes helps your feet rebound and push through every single strep. TruWALK rubber bottoms and EVA midsoles create two layers of shock-resistance. While the lightweight form absorbs force, the rubber bottoms resist its impact. Rubber is naturally bouncy, like your step will be when youâre wearing great-feeling Rockport Works shoes. The 100% non-metallic design is also 100% security friendly. Pass through checkpoints without hassle, and enjoy the soft overall finish. No metal in these athletic safety shoes means no harsh, jagged edges that snag on clothing or scuff up furnishings. Material: Leather.
