The boots are seamed at the the center front at the toes, then the two sides are open, but overlap. The boot closes by a shoelace strung through a series of sturdy metal hooks. The tongue is set at an angle from the top of the boot to cover the front of the ankle. The boot has a lining, also of leather, that is separate from the upper. It also laces closed, but through metal eyelets. The tongue of this lining is padded. The boot has a thick, welted sole, with the heel raised slightly above the front of the foot. The sole is built up of several layers of leather, with a bottom layer of rubber, molded with zig-zag treads. A strip of yellow reflective tape is stuck to the center back of each boot.
