A STURDY new men's chukka boot from Georgia Boot Company helps protect farmers' feet from barnyard chemicals and acids. The GB1222 SPR chukka is made of specially tanned leather that is resistant to caustic alkali, sulfuric acid, calcium hydroxide, potassium phosphate, caustic potash and other acids commonly found in farming environments. A proprietary, oil-resistant polyurethane wedge outsole offers additional protection. Georgia Boot says it developed the new chukka style in response to farmer demand for comfortable, yet sturdy work boots.

The new boot comes in medium and wide, sizes 7 to 13. Suggested retail price is $75. Contact www.georgiaboot.com or www.freeproductinfo.net/fin, or circle 193.
