Chippewa's Industrial Quality steel safety toe footwear is built specifically for the individual who wants a rugged, tough boot that will take the punishment while providing long-lasting comfort and protection. These 4" bay apache waterproof oxfords will keep your feet protected and without extra height of a taller boot. The oxford style is great for shorts or casual wear. The Chippewa lug pattern on the outsole has been designed to provide excellent traction in all terrains. It has channels that move the moisture to keep the foot secure, with moderate deep lug grooves to prevent excessive buildup of debris.
