It wasn’t rocket science, but after watching rubber boots get stuck in deep trenches of muck and mud, we invented Ankle-Fit, a development that revolutionized the way a rubber boot is constructed ensuring a secure fit around the ankle.
Rubber, in its natural uncured form, is a sticky substance extracted from trees and then turned into a durable and elastic material through the process of vulcanization. This process is unique to each manufacturer and for over 115 years, we have been experimenting, testing, and tweaking our process, ensuring that our rubber goods are of the highest quality.

100% waterproof and designed to handle the toughest conditions in the mine, the Protecta™ work boots provide both protection and superior features. The Trac-Lite™ outsole gives excellent traction on wet surfaces. Steel toe, steel midsole and full metatarsal guard meet or exceed ASTM F2413-11 M I/75 C/75 EH PR MT. The adjustable top strap buckles for a secure fit, and the Ankle-Fit™ design keeps boots on in mud and wet terrain.

  • Ozone-resistant, abrasion-resistant rubber offers 100% waterproof protection. ZXT™ rubber is a premium compound of rubber that has a high tensile strength, which means greater tear-resistance and greater durability
  • Developed in 1963, LaCrosse® Ankle-Fit™design features a narrowed ankle pocket that grips the top of the foot better and locks the heel in place preventing excess rubbing and chafing
  • Removable insole for cushioning comfort
  • Top strap and buckle provide an adjustable, secure fit
  • Trac-Lite™ outsole gives excellent traction on wet surfaces
  • Fiberglass shank
  • 16" height
  • 6.6 lbs per pair
  • Steel toe, steel midsole and metatarsal guard all meet or exceed ASTM F2413-11 M I/75 C/75 EH PR MT. Electrical hazard (EH) footwear is manufactured with non-conductive electrical shock resistant soles and heels.

    Comments about LaCrosse Protecta Safety Toe Met Guard Work Boots:

    I've been mining for 40 years. The only boot that comes close to this one is a pair of Lacrosse boots I had in the 1980's. I was a little concerned that they are made in China but after four months of walking on shot rock there is still plenty of tread for traction on slippery surfaces.
