Vibram® Tacoma Outsole
This logger boot features the Vibram Tacoma logger sole which is a wonderful single piece sole that lasts a really long time. You gotta remember, for a longer boot most of the time out of the box they’re not flexible.
But this thing has got a lot of flex and a lot of energy return to it because of the Tacoma sole and the leather welt that’s all the way around.
As I mentioned before, it is a Gore-Tex line, so it’s a hundred percent waterproof guaranteed by the GORE company. Carolina also uses the GORE-TEX® Axiom 4L Lining which to make it sound a little bit better because of the fact that they use their own special Gore-Tex liner on the inside. It doesn’t wear out prematurely from rubbing and bumps and stuff like that.
Most of the time when you have a Gore-Tex lining boot and if you’re driving or if you’re working with some sort of piece of machinery or something, you kind of put premature wear on the boot from leaning your foot left or right.
Well, that new Gore-Tex liner really stops that from happening, it really takes abrasion and wear really well.
Remember the 7519 is steel toe, and that’s really important when you’re working with logger boots with chainsaws and all the other stuff. You want to have steel there.
Composite, well you hit a composite toe with a chainsaw, and it’s cutting right in. At least with a piece of steel, it’s got something to deflect the bar away from you.
The leather that Carolina uses on this boot they call a cork harness leather. And it’s stuff. It is really tough. It is not only tough; it’s really finished off really nice in all the little sections and all the way through.
Carolina does a really good job of just finishing this boot off. Every pair I ever reviewed look perfect, and they always have this just handsomeness to it that only a logger can have.
As you can tell by the shape of this boot, you can see where that is really built to go around your calf and in your ankle. The top is finished off real nice, and it’s got a nice little angle to it.
Like I said before, this is a 10-inch Carolina logger boot, so it’s going to feel and look a little bit taller than your normal logger.
So, now we get to the insulation. It has 400 Grams of Thinsulate™ Insulation, and that doesn’t really sound like a lot.
But think for a moment, with this leather and 400 grams in wool socks and if you’re really buying a logger to use for the purpose that a logger was intended, more than likely you know how to dress in the winter time in the cold weather.
So, 400 grams is going to be perfect for you no matter where you’re at work with a boot like this.
Always Carolina’s sends along their AG footbed. Remove the footbed and break it in for a day or two without the cushion in there just to soften up the leather to push down the hard bed that’s inside there.
Just to kind of get that formed to the shape of the foot, to the heel, to the ball. Just so when you start using this boot for work purposes, you’ve already got it pretty much well established and broken into the shape of your foot.
Just like the steel toe, the boot comes with a steel shank. So you know you’re going to be able to climb with this thing.
Carolina covers a lot of sizes on this boot. They start at 8, and they go all the way up to 14. They make it in a D width and EE width. That pretty much gets everybody covered.
Now if you go to pull a pair of these off the wall, the thing you’re going to notice is the weight. This is not the lightest boot out there, but if you’re a logger guy, if you’re somebody who’s already worn loggers for several years,
I think you’re going to understand why a boot like this needs to be heavy.
Because if you’re buying this for the purpose that it’s intended for, for working with chainsaws, for working in forestry, then you’re going to know that you can depend on this boot.
So that’s the Carolina 75199 insulated logger boots. If you’ve ever worn Carolina loggers before, please comment below, let guys know about the break-in time and which model you wore.
If you were happy or if you were unhappy, please I would really appreciate the feedback that I’ll be getting from you guys. That’ll all for the Carolina CA7519 review, see you in the next review.
