Here's 8 reasons we can't stop wearing our Redbacks:

 

1. Pull-on Loops - Make it easy to slip on and off quickly.

2. Unique Heel Reinforcement - Three-layer counter design provides longer lasting lateral stability and heel shape with no rough edges.

3. Support System - A two-component Urethane Air-cushion midsole contains millions of tiny air bubbles to enhance shock absorption, energy return and contributes to an overall lightweight design.

4. Tougher, More Supple Leather - Redback uses premium quality full grain leather that is 30% thicker than normal boot leather. The full chrome, oil tanned leather means these boots are more resistant to hardening and cracking thus holding their shape longer.

5. Foot Smart Design - The Redback design encourage flexing out of the forefoot and provides stability in the heel for maximum support and control. 

6. Anatomic Support - Unlike traditional boots, the unique anatomic sole cradles the foot to prevent foot strain, fatigue, and related leg and back pain.

7. Footbed Insulation - Thermal comfort and better insulated footbed molds to the foot shape.

8. Sole - Cross-lined, compression molded translucent polyurethane. Unrivaled toughness and resistance to cracking and splitting. Great flexibility in cold temperatures. Oil, acid, and slip resistant. Multi-directional lug design provides increased traction on all surfaces.
