If you are looking for a 8 inch work boot style with the added feature of a wedge bottom, the Georgia Barracuda Gold Wedge work boot could be just what you are seeking. There have been many upgrades in technology over time allowing for better work boots from Georgia Boot. One of the key technology changes allowing for lighter weight work boots has been the use of polyurethane outsoles on products such as this boot. Polyurethane outsole material not only helps make lighter weight work boots, but also gives to help take some of the stress and strain away from the wearer's feet and body. The wedge design of the outsole used on this work boot helps provide arch support.
