The upper of the men's Core boots has been fashioned out of a few materials; there are sections of full-grain leather, 900-denier nylon that covers the majority of the footwear, and of course there is the unbelievably natural-looking Mossy Oak Break-Up Infinity camouflage pattern printed on top of the textile.
Having a lace-up design on these Core boots is utterly brilliant, especially when you are going to be outdoors for long periods of time, because it allows you to adjust the fit and lets you loosen the laces if your feet begin to swell at any point throughout the day. Building these boots with a raised toe bumper as well as adding rubber to the toe and heel does wonders for shielding the footwear against cuts, scrapes, and additional abrasions. Another exceedingly beneficial feature that could easily get overlooked is the woven Rocky pull loop on the back of these 8" boots; you'll find that this feature helps you to get these boots on easily.
Inside, 800 grams of Thinsulate Ultra insulation provides you with optimal protection from the cold, but what's so marvelous about this insulation is that it doesn't make these camo boots feel bulky in the slightest. So, you will still keep your great fit but won't feel the full impact of extremely cold temperatures. As every hunter knows, you have absolutely no control over the weather, and Mother Nature doesn't always want to play nice. Therefore, building boots with Rocky Waterproof construction was imperative to keep your legs and feet completely dry.
You will quickly come to appreciate how hard-wearing the outsole is that has been attached to the bottom of these boots. Its extraordinary level of durability will impress you straightaway, and you'll find that the Rocky rubber lugs improve the stability and traction of the footwear considerably. These lugs are extremely valuable to have outdoors because you are constantly walking across uneven, rough, and bumpy terrain, and wearing the Core boots allows you to walk more steadily.
