Technologies & Features

Tony Lama construction is one of the oldest, most durable and comfortable methods in the industry with our experience in boot making going back more than 140 years. To this day, our expert product designers and skilled boot makers combine industry leading technology and components to construct high-quality boots you can depend on.

Patented Technology
Lama Comfort® - Our Lama Comfort® technology features layers of comfort made up of a leather covered insole to add breathability, a Poron® cushioning urethane for shock absorption and a triple-density insole board for uncompromising durability and moisture absorption.
Cushion Comfort® - Our Cushion Comfort® system is a removable insole that forms to the foot to provide stability and shock absorption for instant comfort and joint protection.
Branded Components
Ortholite® - Our Ortholite® insoles provide extreme breathability and cushion inside our boots. Featuring anti-bacterial characteristics, our Ortholite® insoles can easily be removed and washed.
Dri-Lex® - Dri-Lex® is an abrasion resistant fabric that moves moisture away from the foot. This fabric works in tandem with a layer of spacer mesh which allows air to circulate and dry the foot by moving moisture to the outer layer.
Vibram® Outsole - We partner with Vibram®, the world’s leader in high performance outsoles, to develop durable outsoles specifically designed for comfort and dependable traction.
Dri-Freeze® - Dri-Freeze® delivers heightened foot comfort through a moisture management lining system that is breathable, quick drying and abrasion resisting. The cooling yarns keep the foot comfortable as temperatures rise.
Features
Steel Toe - From the ranch to the construction site, our steel toe boots are the ideal solution for the working man and woman meeting industry standards for impact and compression.
Composite Toe - Our composite safety toe provides security and comfort against impact, compression and electrical hazard at a fraction of the weight.
Puncture Resisting - Based on technology behind bulletproof vests, our midsole construction helps prevent nails and other pointed objects from penetrating our boot insoles in a lighter, more effective option.
Slip-Resisting - Designed with heavy-duty outsoles that influence the grip of the boot when walking on wet surfaces.
Electric Hazard - Our electrical hazard rated boots protect you from open electrical currents from the bottom up. Tested up to 18,000 volts.
Insulated - Our insulated boots are built with lightweight materials that naturally trap body heat, keeping your foot warm.
Nano Comp Toe - The carbon nanotubes in our nano comp boots make it possible for the toecap wall to be thinner, allowing for more toe room and comfort while creating one of the strongest and lightest safety toes on the market.
Waterproof - We use only the best construction and components to create waterproof boots that keep your feet dry no matter the conditions.
Non-Safety Toe - Our non-safety toe boots are built to tackle tough tasks while providing superior comfort and durability to get the job done
3/4 Welt - Our ¾ welt construction is our most meticulous and sought after method. When crafting a ¾ welt boot, our expert boot makers carefully hammer wood pegs and/or nails into small holes in the leather outsole securing the insole and the outsole together. This time-tested boot making technique offers higher quality craftsmanship and a signature fit with the ability to resole.
Full Welt - Our full welt construction offers a more universal boot fit. When using this method, our boot makers carefully sew the perimeter of the outsole to the upper boot to ensure quality, long-lasting craftsmanship. This well-known method creates a relaxed, comfortable fit with the ability to resole.
