The Tech 8 simply gets better and better with age. The very latest development and material technology has been applied to the iconic Tech 8 boot to yet further enhance its performance. An innovative, bio-mechanical, calf and shin articulation system has been designed to give improved control and flex while overall, the fit and comfort features have been improved throughout the structure of the boot.
- Full Grain leather upper construction with innovative external, bio-mechanical, calf and shin articulation system featuring a vertical dual sliding blade mechanism. This design, formed with multi-compound Poly Urethane (PU), improves control and flex consistency throughout the Tech 8 and being an integral part of the front and rear protection, enhances the boot's safety performance.
- Extended flex panels in the in-step and Achilles further promote natural movement, control and comfort.

The revised upper buckle alignment (rear closing top buckle and forward closing shin buckle) improve fit control while retaining the burst protection afforded by bi-directional buckle closure. The buckles are mounted within the profile of the boot to further protect them from impact damage.
