Introducing the Newest Reebok Work Sublite Cushion Footwear: EXOFUSE

Thursday, September 10th, 2020

St. Louis, MO (September 9, 2020) – Warson Brands, official licensee of Reebok for occupational footwear, introduces the Exofuse extension of the wildly-popular and industry-leading Reebok Sublite Cushion Work line of work shoes. The series includes two styles of athletic work shoes.

The Reebok Sublite Cushion Work incorporates a Sublite foam midsole to maximize cushioning while minimizing weight.  A proprietary blend of lightweight foams create the Sublite midsole, which achieves maximum lightness with a soft underfoot feel.  Deep flex grooves in the midsole allow for natural movement of the foot and greater range of motion.  At the heel and toe are rubber pads for stopping power and takeoff propulsion.

“The Reebok Sublite Cushion Work is our lightest series of work footwear”, says John Duvic, VP of Product Development at Warson Brands.  “Industrial workers are on their feet all day carrying heavy loads for their job, so we wanted to create one piece of equipment that wouldn’t weight them down.  The Sublite Cushion Work is it. With these latest two models, we added an Exofuse water resistant microfiber upper and extra slip-resistant traction at the heel and forefoot.  This is a great shoe for anyone around chemicals, water, grease, and oil.”

The Sublite Cushion Work also features a MemoryTech Massage 2.0 footbed that adapts to the unique contours of the foot.  A lightweight XTR® Brand alloy toe cap provides plenty of room in the toebox while meeting or exceeding ASTM F2413 safety standards.  The RB4050 and RB4051 both provide electrical hazard protection and are metal free.

Reebok work footwear and the Sublite Cushion Work series are available through select retailers throughout the United States and at www.reebokwork.com

The Latest from Salomon Forces – Trade Compliant Boots

Tuesday, September 8th, 2020

Salomon has made some updates to their Forces line, but the most significant is the Trade Agreements Act compliant versions of the XA Forces Mid GTX and XA Forces Mid GTX EN as well as the Quest 4D GTX Forces 2 and Quest 4D GTX Forces 2 EN. These are their most popular styles purchased by US customers and investing in new manufacturing in Trade Act countries makes them more attainable using US government purchasing vehicles. In this case, the boots are all manufactured in Cambodia.

XA Forces Mid GTX

Based on Salomon’s iconic XA PRO 3D, the XA Forces Mid GTX has been its own style for the past few years as designers have beefed up this lightweight boot for use by SOF. They weigh just 16.8 oz (size 9), but offer a great deal of stability thanks to the 3D Advanced Chassis. You can also see the instep reinforcement for fast roping.

Additionally, there’s no coming untied thanks to the QuickLace system which tightens when pulled but is easily loosened for removal.

The XA Forces Mid GTX is available in Coyote and XA Forces Mid GTX EN is offered in Ranger Green and Black.

Quest 4D GTX Forces 2

If you need something a bit more robust, look at the Quest 4D GTX Forces 2. Although more of a traditional hiking boot design, they are only 7 oz more than the XA Forces Mid at 23.8 oz (size 9).

Tge 4D chassis the boot takes its name from, harnesses two different midsole components for enhanced foot control and active comfort.

The Quest 4D GTX Forces 2 is offered in Coyote, while the Quest 4D GTX Forces 2 EN can be had in Ranger Green and Black.

Additionally, all of the TAA compliant boots feature Gore-Tex membranes.

Salomon widened their last or fit, a few years ago, so you won’t feel tight in the toebox anymore. Offered in Men’s sizes 4-15 (some half sizes). That should be enough for most unit and agency uniform programs. Check them all out at www.salomon.com/en-us/shop/men/collection/forces

Unico Combat Waterproof by Naglev

Monday, July 13th, 2020

Founded by the members of the Italian Morlin family, who have made footwear for six generations and revitalized the Garmont brand in the 90s, but left to try something new and sustainable. In fact, the company’s name is an acronym, Natural Glocal Evolution, with “glocal” denoting global and local working together.

First off, although the Unico is named a combat boot, the name is derived more from the styling than its intended use. That being said, it doesn’t mean well dressed commandos won’t be wearing these later this year. I suspect they will.

The design is very straight forward and they are only available in Black with natural accents. This high leg shoe is the result of the successful Unico which is a low top trail shoe.

It features an outer shell made of Kevlar and an inner wool sock. Due to this construction, expect a glove-like fit. The outer shell is made of a single piece of indestructible Kevlar forming a sandwich which incorporates the cable lacing, the padding and the stiffner. This also features a TPU rand.

Inside there’s the wool I mentioned, along with lycra and eco membrane for waterproofness.

The sole is natural rubber and the pattern reminds me a bit of the old Bomba sole. The footbed is crafted from leather and coconut fibers and there’s a dual-density EVA midsole. If they’re anything like the low top variant, they’re going to have a very stiff sole, akin to an approach shoe.

They utilize Men’s Euro sizing, 40-47 with half sizes. Shipping in October.
