Justin makes great boots. No doubt about it. But do you know what it is that makes the boots so wonderful? Their technology. The thought that goes into each and every boot. We’re here to explain what all those symbols mean and what it means to you!
Justin Grip on Demand- The sole of this boot has special grooves in it. Those grooves allow the boot to grip when flexed (bent, like when you’re walking), and releases its grip when the sole is flat. So when you’re walking around the job, you can be sure your foot won’t slip.
Justin Stabilization Technology (JST)- This insole has dual-density medical memory foam that stabilizes your foot, but still allows it to shift when needed. Essentially, it keeps your feet steady without compromising movement!
Bent Rail- This technology covers both the outsole and the midsole. It has an all directional rubber outsole with a flexible internal midsole. This technique gives you the look of a traditional western boot, but while being comfortable and performing like a regular shoe.
J-Flex Flexible Comfort System- This is the patented technology that makes Justin Boots some of the most comfortable boots you’ll ever wear. Instead of the traditional stiffness that accompanies most western boots, this technology allows for flexibility in your foot while walking, allowing you to move naturally and comfortably.
Stampede Stabilization Comfort System- This insole combines the J-Flex Flexible Comfort System, Justin Stabilization Technology and an EVA comfort foot bed.
Q Crepe- This sole has the Grip-on-Demand technology, while being thinner and more comfortable while riding. The sole is stirrup-friendly crepe and grips when you need it.
Jel- This is a polyurethane insert that is reinforced with encapsulated air cells and contains shock absorbing gel pads in the hell and ball. This allows for energy return while working and provides a longer lasting cushion.
Handcrafted in the USA- This means exactly what you think it means. This boot was made by American workers!
Waterproof- This boot was made for soggy conditions. If you ever have to work in rain, mud, or bogs you want a boot that is waterproof!
Electrical Hazard- If you work in an environment where you have to worry about electrical currents, you’ll want to choose a boot with this on it. (Or whatever is recommended by your safety coordinator. Sometimes they’ll require a boot that is fire resistant instead!)
Steel Toe- This boot was made to protect your toes. (Don’t believe the myths that steel toes actually cause more injuries. Remember, the Mythbusters busted that myth a long time ago!!)
Aluminum Toe- While still meeting the requirements for compression and impact tests under ASTM standards, this boot is much lighter than the steel toe!
Comp Toe- It’s a lighter-weight protection for your toes like the aluminum toe, and still offers the same protection as the steel toe.
MetGuard with Poron XRD- A MetGuard protects the metatarsal part of your foot. It’s like a little shield for your foot and meets or exceeds ASTM F2413-11 for impact protection. This particular MetGuard is also impact-absorbing to help cushion impacts.
Double Comfort- This system has a revolutionary orthotic insert working with the Orthotic Texon/Poron Insole to give support, as well as comfort during the workday.
