QUATRO Waterproof Farm BootsNew Zealand's Skellerup Industries has introduced its full line of QUATRO Footwear to farming, agricultural and industrial applications in the USA.

A select group of retailers is being assembled.

The flagship model of Skellerup footwear, the QUATRO Waterproof Farm Boot represents the next generation in waterproof footwear. Hand-built using natural rubber formulations developed to meet exacting quality standards, QUATRO provides the highest level in comfort and durability.

Built for the demanding environments of agribusiness, each QUATRO boot features uppers made of UV-resistant natural rubber that is specially treated to resist acid found in manure and urine that eats through lesser boots. The QUATRO Comfort system consists of cushioned rubber midsoles, arch support systems and outsoles designed to cushion and distribute the weight of the wearer. Antimicrobial, antibacterial moisture-wicking linings keep feet dry for all-day comfort. The QUATRO Safety system includes anti-skid zones at the forefoot and heel of the foot for slip resistance, hardened rubber caps for foot protection, raised ribbing for forefoot protection and an internal fiberglass shank for standing on ladders or fence posts. An optional safety toe is also available.

QUATRO Boots are available in 13-inch calf-height and 16-inch knee height for all applications. Both lengths are available with and without 4mm neoprene foam insulation that has a thermal insulation rating of -58F.
