These Wellco Mine Boggler Blast Overboots were designed to reduce damage in heavily mine-infested areas. Originally intended to be worn over regular boots, or worn over specially-designed mine-resistant boots for additional protection. Kevlar® aramid uppers help absorb bomb fragments, while the soles feature a unique "attenuator" design intended to reduce and redirect explosive detonations coming from directly under the boot. Hopefully you don't have to deal with mine fields in your neck of the woods, but these Overboots still provide protection against less-deadly dangers to civilian footwear. Plus they make cool and unique collectibles to have around your shop or office.
