West Coast Shoe Company (Wesco) announced its “Name That Boot” contest for two new styles of safety/electrical hazard boots. Both new boot styles are modeled after the company’s top-selling Highliner boot. The new non-conductive boot styles are made from the finest available brown leather utilizing welt construction, featuring a composite toe that meets ASTM F2413-05 MI/75 C75. One new boot style is a 10-inch ground boot, while the other style is made for climbing, available in heights of 10- and 16-inches. Both boot styles need to have differentiating names. Both boot styles will be available for purchase in July 2009 with prices starting at $433.00.
“Changes in safety regulations affect many of our customers. We designed these new boots to far exceed the construction and materials used in other electrical hazard boots currently available in the marketplace. Linemen, Arborists, Utility Workers, Electricians and others can fully expect this boot will live up to Wesco’s reputation for ‘Boots That Stand the Gaff’ and endure the test of time,” said Wesco President Roberta Shoemaker, granddaughter of the founder.
“Because our customers’ opinions are so important to us here at Wesco, we wanted to give them a chance to name two styles that will be part of our lineup permanently.”
