Wolverine Legend DuraShocks CarbonMax Boot


In the world of men’s footwear there are many brands, but only one brand that stands out from all others: Wolverine. The company was founded in 1872 by American entrepreneur Joseph Pulitzer and it is still run today by its original founders. They have been making high quality leather goods since then. One of their most famous products is the legendary Wolverine line of boots.

These boots were created with the sole purpose of helping people survive in harsh environments. Their name comes from the fact that they are made entirely out of real leather, which means no artificial materials or finishes. All these years later, they continue to produce some of the best footwear money can buy.

The Durashock™ series is one such product. It is a collection of boots designed specifically for outdoor activities. They are built with durable rubber soles and are constructed using the same construction techniques used to make military equipment.

The result?

A pair of rugged boots that will last for years without breaking down. This is why, at the time of this writing, Men’s Boots Rankings rates the Legend DuraShocks highest among all other boots in their class. The only negative thing that can be said about these boots is that they can be a bit too heavy for some people. This boot has an average weight of around 2.5 pounds per pair.


The DuraShocks can be divided into two categories, the low-tops and the high-tops. The low-tops are more popular among people who engage in activities that require a lot of movement like running or climbing. The high-tops are better suited to people engaged in heavy duty work like working at a construction site or farming. They both have the same specifications.

The outsoles are made from a special blend of rubbers called DuPont™ Kal-tire™. It is constructed in such a way that it provides the best traction possible while remaining highly resistant to damage from impact or abrasion. This material was specifically chosen by Wolverine because it is known to last at least three times longer than other types of rubber. The mid-soles and the outsides are made from a lightweight material called Poron®.

This material is slowly gaining popularity among shoe manufacturers because it is five times more shock absorbent than standard foam material. It also helps reduce impact on knees and ankles.

The upper part of the boots are made using genuine leather. Although this means that they are not as resistant to abrasion, this type of leather is very pliable and durable. These boots can easily last for years and, with a little care, they will retain their original shape even after years of use.

The rubber outsoles and leather uppers are sewn together using a heavy-duty thread to ensure that the seams will never come apart.

These boots are extremely durable. They can take a lot of punishment and will still remain intact. They also have great ankle support which makes them ideal for people who need to do a lot of running or climbing.

These boots are designed to be highly breathable. Even people who engage in activities that will make their feet hot like hiking or playing soccer will find these boots to be quite comfortable. There are specially designed vents at the top of the boots which allow air to flow freely in and out.

The boots have a reasonable price considering the quality of craftsmanship and the materials used to make them.


These boots are very heavy. Those who prefer running or playing sports to be as fast as possible may find that these boots slow them down quite a bit. This problem can be fixed by taking them off every once in a while.

Some people with wide feet have reported that these boots can be quite uncomfortable and tight even if they chose the right size.

The boots are not very resistant to cuts or puncture. They can be damaged easily by something as sharp as a shard of broken glass.

There are customers who have reported that after a few months the color started to fade. This problem can be fixed by applying special protective sprays on the boots.


All in all, these boots are a good choice for someone who needs solid ankle support and prefers to have heavier boots. They could be great for people who engage in a lot of physical activity or for those who want footwear that can offer them a lot of support.
