The FlexForce® 4448 features:

Soles that have been designed and tested to perform on high heat surfaces. Soles identified as HRO are heat resistant to melting at a minimum of 475º Fahrenheit.
Red Wing Leather
Starting with hides from U.S.-raised cattle with minimal surface imperfections, we control every step of the process, using time-honored techniques to craft leather with natural beauty and unmatched durability.
Vibram® Outsole
Exceptional design intersects with innovative rubber compounds to create versatile, performance outsoles. Vibram® outsoles offer excellent traction and high abrasion resistance in a multitude of environments.
This technology is a protective covering that provides long-wearing abrasion, oil and chemical resistance on critical areas of the boot.
Red Wing Waterproofing System
This system uses a 3-layer approach to keep feet dry.1 - Linings help move moisture away from the foot to keep it dry. 2 - Foam provides cushioning and a comfortable fit. 3 - A waterproof bootie is a barrier to keep water out. Tricot, a protective material, is applied to the outside of the bootie to ensure a complete waterproof system.
A built-in insole system that absorbs pressure and provides overall support, stability and comfort. This innovative technology dramatically reduces underfoot pressure, and blocks painful pressure points by redistributing them evenly across the foot while minimizing shock.
Flex Force
This technology combines increased flexibility in the forefoot with a stable platform in the heel. A superior dual-construction process incorporates a welted heel for extra stability, with flexible cement construction in the forefoot for added cushion and a comfortable fit. Elements from our exclusive DynaForce® insoleare built in to reduce underfoot pressure.
Slip Resistant
Standard for performance requirements when evaluating slip resistance of protective footwear using a certified whole shoe test method.
