These 6" General Utility Service Boots from Chippewa offer a streamlined yet substantial design that looks good without calling too much attention to themselves. The lace-up style allows you to customize the fit and gives you great ankle support, and the waxed finish makes tightening and loosening much easier. The Vibram V-Bar rubber outsole is designed for maximum traction on a variety of terrains including wet surfaces and offers a slimmer profile, adding to the more refined look of the boots in comparison to other military inspired footwear. The Goodyear Welt construction makes for a more durable and waterproof boot that can be resoled several times, drastically extending the life of the boot.
