Billy Boots is pleased to announce expanded distribution of the amazing Cruiser, a lightweight, molded, pull-on boot that runs circles around any other work or farm boot on the market. Molded from lightweight EVA resin, the Cruiser has no seams to leak and no buckles to fail. At just 2.1 pounds per pair, Cruisers are virtual featherweights compared to other boots in their class, yet are tough enough to stand up to challenges like rebar wire ties that can shred ordinary PVC boots.
The Cruiser's EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) construction is the key to its outstanding performance. The EVA closed-cell polymer used in Cruisers is completely waterproof. It is flexible for comfort, yet tough enough for factory, farm, or construction work even in the harshest conditions. EVA resists stress-cracking and UV radiation and has little or no odor. It provides excellent shock absorption and, due to the trapped air in it's closed cell structure, insulates against cold, even at sub-zero temperatures. And the beefy molded-in lug sole helps prevent slips and falls in environment from work site to stockyard.
"EVA is the ideal material for this kind of boot," says Billy Boots National Sales Manager Justin Greenhalgh. "Unlike constructed boots, EVA is molded in a single unit, eliminating seams that can leak or come apart. Unlike one-piece PVC boots, which contains lead, chlorine, and other toxins, EVA is environmentally friendly. It resists 98 percent of chemical compounds, and nothing sticks to it. Materials like mud, animal waste, and concrete that can cling to other boot materials just fall right off the EVA surface. So not only are the boots themselves lighter, but you aren't lifting that caked on matter with every step. By the end of a workday that's a lot of lifting eliminated. And because nothing sticks to EVA, cleanup's easier too."
Inside the Cruiser's one-piece EVA shell are an ASTM-compliant composite toecap for safety and a contoured insole for comfort and arch support. And while they are easy on your feet, Cruisers are rugged enough to outlast several pairs of ordinary PVC boots, and are very affordable. For your toughest jobs-in scorching heat or bitter cold, wet or dry, nothing protects like Cruisers.
