Auto mechanics should not wear generic shoes. Our work shoes and work boots offer several special features that are simply not found in other options at any price point.
We spent two years developing and testing these high quality work shoes with a select group of working mechanics to develop shoes specifically tailored to the needs of auto mechanics. The people in this test and development group were from many different segments of the automotive service and repair industry, including vehicle dealerships, independent service and repair shops, quick lubes, muffler shops, tire installers, fleet specialists, and truck repair centers. With their help, we tested each of the features created for these work shoes. The result is a special work shoe/work boot that will outperform every other shoe or boot of it’s kind. These are not work shoes made as a catchall for a number of professions; these are work shoes/work boots for the mechanic.
They include a special “comfort pocket” where the foot rests inside of the shoe. This comfort pocket contains two cushion inserts in the outsole for twice the cushioning effect of any generic work shoe. The comfort pocket also offers side panels, which consist of two separate ultra soft leather panels which add to both support and extra foot comfort.
Water and Chemical Resistant
No work shoe or boot made of full grain leather can be 100% waterproof, but our Mechanic Work Shoes are as close to water proof as is possible. Our Mechanic Work Shoes will ensure that the mechanics feet are going to stay drier than any generic shoe or boot can offer.
Foot, leg and back stability are all-important for the mechanic because he is standing on his feet for most of the work day, does a lot of bending & kneeling and has to use his feet and legs for leverage many times during his shift. Our Mechanic Work Shoes are designed specifically to promote stability, causing less pain in the process.
Super Fitting USA Sizing
Our Mechanic Work Shoes are USA foot sized to exact USA specs. Our Mechanic Work Shoes will be the exact same size as any pair of the top brand of walking or running shoes, like Nike or New Balance. We offer full and half sizes in both regular and wide width for the best overall fit.
Easy to Keep Clean
Regular cleaning for leather work shoes is extremely important. Leather can’t withstand some of the harsh, caustic chemicals which are normally found in the mechanics work place. We pre-treat our full grain leather with a chemical resistant coating, but that coating must be wiped clean regularly to keep these caustic chemicals from penetrating the leather surface. A simple wipe down of the Mechanic Work Shoes with water and detergent will keep the leather looking great and help to keep your Mechanic Work Shoes on the job longer than generic work shoes.
The Mechanic Work Shoes have a very special outsole and tread design which makes them as slip proof as is possible.
Lighter Than All Other Work Shoes
All of the materials used in the manufacture of the Mechanic Work Shoes are the lightest possible while still being strong and can withstand the toughest daily workouts on the job. We have replaced the steel toes with high impact plastic inserts which are every bit as strong as steel, but only a fraction of the weight.
Built to Last
Unlike most work shoes, the Mechanic Work Shoes are built to last. They are made from the best leather and all components for the assembling of the Mechanic Work Shoes are manufactured in North America. The workmanship is the best and the machinery used in the manufacturing of these special shoes is “state of the art.” These Work shoes, with proper care and cleaning, will last two more times longer than generic work shoes.
The Mechanic Work Shoes are specifically designed for the automotive mechanic and the work that they do. There is nothing “generic” about the Mechanic Work Shoes. Every feature built into these work shoes was designed specifically for the automotive mechanic.
A special lining in these work shoes will help to force any moisture down to the insert which can be removed and replaced daily with the second pair of inserts (packaged with every pair of the Mechanic Work Shoes). Starting each day with a completely dry work shoe will help to eliminate fungus and odor, while promoting comfort.
Leather Aging Corrective
This feature is exclusive to the Mechanic Work Shoes. All leather will stretch with continued use and when that happens the internal sizing of the foot pocket can expand. When this happens, the foot is no longer held firmly in place inside of the shoe and foot “wobble” can take place. When “wobble” happens, the foot and shoe are no longer stable and this is when ankle and leg problems can happen. The Mechanic Work Shoes “Amor Guard” system locks the leather components in place which substantially cuts down on the possibility of any stretching of the foot pocket, which in turns helps to eliminate the possibility of “wobble.”
SIZING – USA standard sizing – from 7.5 to 14 in full or half sizes. All sizes are offered in Medium (normal) and Wide widths.
