COMFORT CORE—Patented Comfort Core is a specially-designed, energy-return cushion that stores energy as the weight of your foot compresses. Then, as the foot is lifted, that energy is released. The insoles feature a unique air flow system containing dozens of tiny air holes that force air through the insole as you walk. So feet stay cooler and drier longer.

GORE-TEX—A patented membrane with tiny pores that keep water molecules out while letting air vapor escape from around the boot making them waterproof and sweat proof.

THINSULATE—A trademarked insulation for keeping out the cold. In order to be able to use the trademarked name, the thinsulate material  must be used throughout  the boot, including the toe, vamp, heel and up past the ankle.

SPR—A trademarked leather that has undergone a special tanning process to make it 3 times stronger and 2 1/2 times more abrasion-resistant than conventional leathers. This offers better protection against barnyard chemicals, caustic alkali, sulfuric acid, calcium hydroxide, potassium phosphate, caustic potash and other barnyard acids.  It's also "pasture-proof".

SPEED LACE SYSTEM—Detachable Zipper system allows you to lace boots or add zipper for quick entry.

CARBO TEC—A trademarked process that creates soles using a blend of 95% neoprene combined with Comfort Core technology and other materials.  The result is a comfortable, non-marking sole with anti-slip tread and resistance to oil and chemicals.  It even helps insulate feet against the cold. Carbo-Tec soles are applied to the boot with the use of a special heating process that keeps them attached.
