The Alaska RF001 boots from U.K.-based Rock Fall Ltd. features rubber outsoles able to withstand temperatures down to –40°c. It uses 3M Thinsulate B600 Insulation Thermal Lining, a material commonly used by outdoor workers. Alaska RF001 consists of a “Fursulate” lining, creating warmth and comfort, while the breathable mid-lining ensures maximum moisture wicking properties, the company said. The protective composite toecap and midsole enhance the thermal and safety properties of this boot. Because of these features, the boot offers huge benefits to individuals working in construction in cold climates, offshore settings, cold storage and other hazardous, low temperature environments. The Alaska Boot surpasses the EN ISO 20345:2004 S3 CI European Safety Standards, the company said. Developed with the wearer and their cold working environments in mind, the Alaska RF001’s upper material is made of anti-cracking full grain leather and an SRC Slip Resistant Rating. It features a composite toe-cap and anti penetration composite internal midsole, the company said.
