The Midlands style offers a cross-over option for those wanting a more versatile shoe for biking and other sports. Reminiscent of a laced sneaker, these boots are tough and made for action. Made with waterproof full-grain leather uppers with a breathable Hydro-Guard™ waterproof membrane full-length lining. A badge denoting the boot's waterproof engineering is sewn into the outside face of the boots for easy identification. With a round toe, lacing is accomplished with seven logo eyelets, tying off at the top of the shaft where an extra-long tongue sports a silver, white, and black Bar & Shield® logo.
The black laces are reflective, all the more to be seen with. A debossed B & S® logo is also on the outside face of the shaft. The eyelets and the heel counter have additional leather layers for long-term durability and wear. The top portion of the back shaft has four panels of cushion ribbing, providing extra comfort for a full range of ankle motion for riding, jumping, or running. The ankles have additional protection with PORON®, a top choice for extreme impact protection, which means the boots are comfortable, flexible and lightweight while still absorbing more than 90% of energy when impacted at high strain rates. Additionally, the boots have 3M™ reflective material. The boot's sole, insole and upper are bound using cement construction processes, a time honored and durable method that allows for a flexible and easy stride. Rubber out-soles mean a soft and carefree stride. The bottom of the sole features an embedded Bar & Shield® orange at the instep. Shaft height: 4.75", Heel height: 1".
