Hard as oak.
The Redwing Men's 6in Roughneck Boot doesn't just look tough; it is tough. Originally made for men that built and operated oil rigs, before things like OSHA existed, the Roughneck was built to offer rugged protection and outstanding traction. As a result, you'll find a stain- and oil-resistant leather at the upper along with an aggressively lugged Vibram sole. A steel shanks adds to their supportive feel, while nickel eyelets help keep the boots intact after years of hard wear.
