Ready to conquer any job, the new LaCrosse Extreme ToughTM series delivers traditional work boot styling with the tough durability that today’s jobs require. It is the latest offering in a complete line-up of leather work boots from LaCrosse that help users to dominate their ground.

The Extreme Tough series of work boots incorporate a full compliment of features addressing worker’s needs for extreme protection and durability. It starts with an armor of abrasion and chemical resistant leather. Shielding feet from various elements like gasoline, diesel fuel, and barnyard chemicals, the Extreme Tough boots will perform in a multitude of harsh environments. Ten times as resistant to abrasion as full grain leather, the urethane infused leather adds the durability needed in a tough work boot. The fortress of a Hyper-Dri® liner provides 100% waterproof protection to keep feet dry and comfortable, even in the most miserable conditions. The fortitude of the oil and slip resistant rubber outsole provides a solid foundation to go all day and get the job done. “Our customers work in some really extreme conditions and our goal was to build a tough work boot that they can count on for protection and durability in those environments,” said Chris Wojnar, Product Line Manager for the LaCrosse Work category.

Available in three styles, the Extreme Tough series is ready to conquer any job. The Wellington style is easy on/off and makes a great chore boot, perfect for jobs on the farm. The 6″ lace-up version is ideal for rough jobs where extra protection is required. The Romeo is an all around slip-on boot that combines casual comfort with long life durability. All styles are available with an optional steel safety toe that is certified to ASTM standards. Additionally, the Extreme Tough is built with Goodyear welt construction, a method synonymous with tough durability.

The Extreme Tough series will be available Spring 2010 for delivery to retail in April. The boots and the commercial promoting them, which features professional MMA and former UFC fighter Matt Lindland, can be seen at www.lacrossefootwear.com. All styles are available in men’s sizes 7-14 M and 8-13 EE with half sizes available to size 12 ranging from $90 for the plain toe Romeo to $125 for the safety toe Wellington.
